Beginning A New, Exciting Adventure Comes As A Passion For Many; The Open Road, New Cultures And Not Forgetting The Sun! Finding A Storage Solution That Suits Your Needs Can Be Difficult, But Self-Storage Facilities Provide The Best Solution.

Here at Gilmorton Storage, we have a wide range of storage facilities available which are not only affordable but simple and safe too.

What To Store When Travelling

If you are currently renting a home, this part will be fairly easy, for obvious reasons you will need to store furniture, clothes, appliances etc. Every item you will require to have back when you return from seeing the world will need to be stored.

Regardless of the amount of time you are going to be away for, storing your belongings in a safe, dry and clean space is crucial. If you are living with family, you may want to consider storing some of your belongings in order to make more space for other people who live in the household.

The things you may want to consider storing include:

  • Appliances
  • Books & Media
  • Clothes
  • Electronics
  • Files & Documents
  • Furniture
  • Photographs
  • Shoes
  • Valuable Items

Long Term Or Short Term?

Whether you are travelling for a lengthy period of time or just for a couple of months, self-storage is a great solution. Before you begin to organise your belongings into storage, you will need to consider how long you are going to store them for.

Determining what to do with your stuff while you’re away from home can be stressful, whether you are heading to the other side of the world to explore or heading on a European adventure, worrying about your belongings in long or short term storage is the last thing we want you to do.

If you are planning an international move you should consider our long term storage solutions, however, if you are going to be away for a short period of time, short term storage may be best for you.

How To Pack An Organised Storage Unit

When returning from your adventure the last thing you want to do is have to pull everything out of your storage unit and dig through boxes in order to find something, especially if the time is inconvenient. Planning ahead to make sure the storage unit you have is organised can save you a lot of hassle.

Here are some tips to help you get organised before you leave:

  • List what you need to pack and the size of the unit you require.
  • Pick one box size for most of your belongings as this will help with stacking and liability.
  • Identify the items which family or friends may need to access while you’re away, place these in last so they can be easily accessible when the time comes.
  • Labelling each box you pack can help identify the contents or which room it came from. This can also help to organise where you are going to place it within the storage unit.
