Renting while you build? In need of storage solutions? We’ve got you covered!
Renting a place while you build or renovate is a common scenario many Australian households find themselves in. And while lugging the kids along to live in a temporary home for a few months can be quite an adventure, too often it poses the issue of storage.
With that in mind, we’ve compiled our top storage tips for getting you through the transition period, which should help you and the family to live clutter-free and comfortably until you move into your dream home.
Jump On The Anti-plastic Bag Band Wagon
In addition to the environmental issues posed by excess plastic consumption, plastic bags are a breeding ground for moisture and mildew, which damage stored items even over a short period of time. When it comes to storage, avoiding plastic bags at all costs is the best course of action.
Make sure everything you wish to store, as well as the overall storage area, is completely devoid of dampness before you arrange and pack everything. Remember to allow for moderate airflow and utilise moisture absorbers to be on the safe side.
High-quality containers are a must-have
Available in six different sizes, Ezy Storage’s Ultimate Storage Tubs are an elegant and practical solution for organising and storing items and ensuring they are free from damage. Our Ultimate tubs feature a low profile reinforced lid that sits flush inside the base, and the multi-directional wheels make them easy to manoeuvre on various surfaces.
If you have limited storage space, Ezy Storage’s Solutions Tubs are ideal as they stack and allow you to create your own easy to use, custom arrangement to suit your needs.
Using BPA-free and UV protected materials, these tubs are completely transparent, enabling you to quickly identify their contents should you need to access while they are in storage.
The 110L/116.2 Qt Ultimate Storage Tub and 72L/76 Qt Ultimate Storage Tub are also both highly durable options and ideal for storing items over a few months as they feature ventilation ports. It’s important to remember to always store your tubs in a cool, dry place for maximum protection.
Vacuum seal bags are your friend
Vacuum seal bags are a great solution for maximising the storage volume on bulkier, more durable items such as blankets and coats. There is some debate around how suitable vacuum seals are for long-term use, particularly with clothing made of natural fibre fabrics as they compress when sealed and therefore take some time to decompress; for this reason, it is best to avoid storing delicate clothing items in vacuum seal bags, particularly over longer periods that span more than a few months.
Label properly for easy access
Remember to label your containers accordingly – while their contents will be visible, clear labelling or a storage index will eliminate any unnecessary packing of the wrong containers should you need to retrieve something.
