Keeping your storage unit tidy with steel shelving

If you’re renting a storage unit whether for business or personal property, you’ll know how easy it is for them to become disorganised and messy – something you don’t really want. If you’re not careful, you can end up with boxes everywhere, stacks of paperwork falling down, and odd bits of furniture lying around. This can, naturally, make it an absolute nightmare to find anything when you need to retrieve an item.

But how to keep it tidy? Well, there are plenty of organisation tips we’ve picked up over the years and we’d like to share them with you.

Don’t hoard

First of all, have a good rummage through everything you’re storing and ask yourself honestly if you need it. Get rid of everything that doesn’t need to be kept and allow yourself to start again with a more streamlined inventory.

Go up with steel shelving

Steel shelving should now be the starting point of your storage unit. At Midland Steel Equipment, we offer one of the best ranges of steel shelving for sale in the UK, stocking a variety of heights and widths. You can use these units to line your walls and maximise the space available in your storage unit. This helps keep items off the floor and puts them where you can see them. No more tripping over everything to find one little thing.

Get your small storage in order

Once you have your shelves in place, you need to make sure they stay tidy. Small storage is perfect for this, although what you use entirely depends on what you’re storing. While some things will be able to stay loose on the steel shelving without creating clutter, other things such as paperwork, magazines and small items will need to be stashed securely, Archive boxes, magazine organisers and clear plastic boxes with lids are a great way to store things neatly while still being able to see where everything is. What you don’t want to do is hide everything away so you can’t find it.

Keep it tidy

Just because it’s a storage unit shouldn’t mean out of sight, out of mind. And getting it organised certainly shouldn’t mean just chucking any new inventory in there and then forgetting about it. When you need to add in new things, take the time to put them away properly, whether that’s on a shelf or inside some small storage. This makes it easy to keep on top of clutter and keep your storage unit and shelves organised and stops things descending into chaos again.
