List Making and fun action plans for your self storage process.

The Dolphin Storage Self Storage offers these helpful storage tips to help make your self-storage experience easier and with an intention to have fun:

  • Make a list of all the packing accessories needed to store your items. Bubble-pack, tape, rope, drop cloths, polyurethane sheeting, mattress and furniture covers, pallets, and cartons are just a few of the more commonly used packing items.
  • Have a cuppa tea or aromatic coffee and a bite to eat while you’re writing your list.
  • Disassemble items such as bed frames to maximise the space in the unit.
  • Place frequently used items near the door or at the front of the unit.
  • Write some fun messages on the boxes as you go. “My Power Kitchen utensils” draw a flower
  • Make it a fun experience. Let the kids fill the boxes, while they help pack them too.
  • Fill containers to capacity; partially full or bulging cartons may collapse or tip over in the unit.
  • Pack heavy items like books or tools in smaller boxes. Write heavy on the box.
  • Fragile items should be cushioned by packing and placed towards the top of the unit.
  • Label your cartons and take home a list of the labeled cartons for easy reference.
  • Line the bottom of your self storage unit with a plastic drop cloth for added protection.
  • Is it time for another break. Make it an experience to remember, rather than a rush to get it all over and done with.
  • Use pallets as a foundation to place cartons on top of the pallets.
  • Mothballs are an added protection for your belongings.
  • Take full advantage of your self storage unit’s space uses the full height if possible. Shelving helps organise your unit.
  • All done, congratulations! Time to celebrate with a bubble bath, takeaway meal or a trip to the movies. or whatever else takes your fancy.
