5 Types of Items That Should Go into a Storage Space

Cheapest Self Storage Singapore

De-cluttering the office or your home is a significant undertaking. You need a significant amount of time to go through the items to determine what is worth retaining, what you can toss out and what you prefer to relocate elsewhere.

Things such as old clothes, broken furniture or malfunctioning appliances that you have repeatedly procrastinated to repair will fit this category perfectly. Other items such as events equipment and props or construction materials are dear but bulky or dangerous. These items are better off being stored in a self-storage facility than taking up space in your home or office. Here are five items that will be best kept in an external storage space!

Documents and Books


Work documents that will only be touched once or twice a year should be kept away from the office. These documents can easily build up in the office and take up unnecessary space, especially if it is rarely accessed. At Work+Store, self-storage spaces are accessible 24/7 and you can even provide a one-time digital access to your guest or fellow employee via our mobile app so that you can get someone else to retrieve whatever you need remotely without worrying about passing the key around.

As for home storage, there may be old books that carry sentimental value to you or your family members. Yearbooks, old school projects and even storybooks can bring back a lot of memories to a person. However, these materials, while precious, are hardly viewed and can also take up a lot of space in the house. You can free up some space in your home by storing them away in a self-storage unit as well.

Events Equipment and Props

At Work+Store, self storage spaces come in a range of sizes from 6 sqft to 730 sqft with 24 hour access and CCTV coverage. You can simply stow your equipment in a storage space till your next event.

Sports Items

Self Storage Singapore

Many Singaporeans are sports fans and they maintain heaps of collectable sports items as well as sports gear in their homes. Some of these sports gears include surfboards or ski equipment that they use only when they travel overseas once or twice a year. This sports equipment can become space consuming, especially if you have a whole family’s or a collection of it. A wise choice would be to store these items in a self-storage unit and only retrieve them when needed so that it will not pose as a safety hazard or take up an excessive amount of space at home.

Antique Furniture

That mega-sized oak table in your dining room or grandfather chest in the bedroom are great decorations. However, they also eat up plenty of space. While they may have been passed down to you by your family, there may be occasions where your own home simply does not have adequate space to accommodate them. Instead of throwing them out or giving them away, you can store them away in a self-storage unit until you find a better place to display it.

Half-Used Renovation Material

Simply retrieve them again when you need to fix something or repaint the walls in your home.
