What are the Benefits of Self Storage?

Self storage is the storage solution that enables you to move your belongings into a secure unit. This could be the ideal solution if you are moving house, desperate for more office space or just need an extra space to store your collectibles!


One of the main benefits of using self storage is that it offers enhanced security over storing items in your house. Examples of the features offer at a self store unit include 24 hour CCTV systems, private access, exterior lighting and patrolling security guards.

These features combined create a storage space that would be very difficult to penetrate for criminals which is enough to give anyone peace of mind when locking up. So, for valuables we recommend you store these in a specialised unit – rather than a garage or shed.

Different Sized Units

Self storage centres are designed to have multiple different sized units. This means that they will always have space to store what you need for either the short or the long term. These sizes that are typically available to rent range from small cupboards sized units to garage sized units.

These storage facilities have specially trained staff that can help you calculate the size of unit you require. This is important to gauge correctly because the prices increase with the size of the unit. There may also be some price flexibility if you are planning to store long term which is something sales staff will be able to discuss.

Reducing Clutter

Self storage facilities can be a very good way of decluttering and making you feel more comfortable and happy in your work space. Creating more space in home or offices which could be used for more important items. Furthermore, most self storage facilities allow you to visit at any hour a day to retrieve any items, should you need to.

Once you have rented a unit, items such as furniture, clothes and other appliances can be stored in a self storage unit. These items can be stored here safely until you decide what to do with them, so you can enjoy the new decluttered area.

Situations When Self Storage is Useful

Storage units are a useful solution in a variety of situations, examples include:
● When you are moving house.
● When you are creating more office space.
● Storing your sports equipment.
● Storing items for the winter.

How To Make The Most Of Your Storage Container

Are you looking to maximise your storage container space? Or are thinking of getting some?

Packing a storage container may not be a very difficult task but, by putting some thought into it, you can make the most of the space in your container and even save money! Many people often believe they need a larger storage container than they actually do. This is because they aren’t using their space efficiently. That’s where the team at M54 Space Centre can help.

Label Everything

You probably remember where all your things are stored, when you first move everything in, but what about a few months from now? Will you still remember what is in each box?

Plan for the future by making sure all of your boxes have labels. It will make unpacking a lot easier and if you need to quickly find anything, it can save you heaps of time.

Create an Organised Layout

Whether or not you’re going to access your container regularly, it’s important that you plan the layout of the storage space. You can ensure your storage space stays streamlined by placing heavy items against the walls and leave paths in the middle. This is a great way to ensure you can access your boxes whenever you want.

Keep Most-Used Items at the Front

Make your life easier and ensure your container is organised by storing the items you use the most at the front of your container and those you are unlikely to need for a while, at the back. If you don’t follow a system like this, you will find yourself digging through your container to get to the ones you need.

Make Use of Vertical Space

Whether you choose to use shelving or just stack boxes on top of one another, the important thing is that you’re using more of the available space in your container. Don’t waste valuable vertical space; for example, if you have a mattress to store, place it against a wall to maximise your space.

Line the Walls with Your Belongings

Take advantage of the walls of your storage container and create aisles between different rows of boxes so that you can find anything you want with ease.

Take Your Furniture Apart

This may be the last thing you want to do, however, this will save a lot of space. Pieces of furniture, from your dresser to your wardrobe, are bulky and take up a lot of room inside your container. So, by taking it all apart, you can store more items inside your container and make it easier to access your other belongings.
