Smart Ways to Utilise a Storage Unit when You’re Relocating

Relocating into your new house is an exciting time but the moving process can be stressful and there is no doubt you will have many things to pack and stow away. In between juggling multiple tasks, it’s quite easy to lose track of what’s important and what’s not. During this transitional period, you might also be looking for small warehouses that provides extra space for storage of your household items.

This is where self storage in Singapore can help – to keep appliances, furniture and other possessions. Read on to find out several ways you can use storage units smartly.

Make a Checklist

This helps you to keep track of everything and makes it easier to figure out how much storage space you require for your items. It will also help you stay organised and worry less about where your particular belonging is.

Start Early

Start the packing process early and store those items that you do not use frequently or will not need before you move out of the house. Things like seasonal clothing, decorations, glassware as well as sports and equipment such as golf bags can be kept in a self-storage in Singapore first. Remember to properly wrap fragile items and breakables with enough protective material such as newspapers and bubble wrap to prevent mishaps.

Work+Store offers storage units that come in a range of sizes, from 6 sqft to 730 sqft. They are equipped with basic facilities like air conditioning and lights, managed by flexible lease terms and all-inclusive rental rates. With 24-hour keycard access and CCTV surveillance, you can access the storage unit whenever you want to pack and repack things, while enjoying a peace of mind over the security of your items.

Labels and Clear Bins

Packing your entire household can be daunting enough. Begin one room at a time and label everything by room to help you search for things faster and easier in case you need something. Aside from labelling your cardboard boxes, you can also pack stuff in clear bins so you can easily see what is inside without opening and rummaging through the contents.

De-Clutter

In this period, this is also a great stepping stone to declutter and to start sorting your personal items which you wish to keep, give away, dispose or sell. While it is understandable that parting with our personal possessions is difficult due to sentimental attachment, sometimes storing it away can help you to see and realise what you truly want to keep and what you think you do.

Pack Your Immediate Items

For your convenience, you will need certain essential items to use on a daily basis once you have moved in. Keep things like toiletries, extra sets of clothing, and extra chargers close at hand in one box. This way you can unpack it immediately and get what you need right away without going through many of your other boxes.

Worry less about your things while moving and focus more of your energy on adjusting to the move itself when your stuff is safely stored in the cheapest self storage in Singapore. At the same time, this allows you to bring your belongings in slowly to your new house at a more manageable pace.
