Not Insuring Your Items

No matter how large or small the item is, you must consider having proper insurance for the same. Storage facilities have their contracts where it is clearly mentioned that they will not be responsible for any kind of damage, stealing or loss of your goods until it is proven to be their fault. Hence, you must consider insuring your goods to keep yourself tension-free.

Not Choosing the Right Size of the Unit

Choosing the wrong size of the unit is another common yet serious mistake often made by clients of self-storage Nuneaton. While booking a self-storage unit, you must keep in mind a few things.

  1. The number of items you need to store
  2. The size of these goods
  3. The shape of these goods

It is understandable that you wish to pick a small unit because you want to save some money. But putting too many items inside a small unit will increase the risk of damage which will be a costly mistake for you. So, be careful while choosing the self-storage units and get something that will offer enough room for your goods.

Using Newspapers and Cardboards

Wrapping your goods with cardboard and newspapers can be an easy way to keep them safe from damages inside the storage unit. But, these objects invite pests. Hence, your goods will not be safe from pest attacks. Avoid newspapers and cardboard if you want to keep them safe from pests and insects.

Not Labelling Your Boxes

If you think that putting your boxes inside the unit is enough to keep them organised, you make big mistakes. You must put the correct label on them so you can recognise your items whenever you need to keep them out from the unit.
