1. Keep track with an inventory


The first step in your removals and storage process is to plan out exactly which of your belongings will be put into storage, creating a checklist of the condition of each and every one of your items. Trusting your inventory process with a dedicated removals and storage provider takes away the headache of checking off your belongings, and ensures a specialist team can assess the storage needs of each and every one of your items

2. Make sure your items are easily accessible


With a wide number of branches situated across the big city, accessing your London storage unit with a trusted removals and storage provider has never been so simple. While it’s very useful to have your belongings stored a stone’s throw from your front door, you don’t want to waste any time rifling through your unit for that one particular item you’re looking for. One of the main reasons you might make use of a secure storage solution is to place seasonal items like BBQ sets or garden furniture in safe hands until summer comes round again. Having a regular reorganisation of your storage unit with the help of a removals and storage provider will ensure your space is easily accessible, and you can find what you’re looking for with no fuss.

3.Maximise your space


Space is at a premium especially in London, so filling out every nook and cranny in your unit is a great way of making the most of your storage solution. Experienced removals and storage providers will assess each and every one of your items to make sure your storage unit is perfectly packed. Strategically placing your possessions to fill the length and height of your unit, stacking heavier items close to the ground and leaving space to reach the back of your storage unit are all methods a trusted removals and storage provider will use to help you get the most out of your space. When it comes to the upkeep of your storage unit, it’s key to maintain the tidiness of your space: you don’t want to end up playing Tetris with your items every time you access your storage. One easy way to do this is to leave aisles between each section of your storage unit, giving you room to manoeuvre and ensuring you can reach everything you need.

4. Check out carefully optimal storage conditions
