How do I limit musky storage odours?

How can I save money on storage?


Maximizing space utilization is key to saving money on storage. Disassemble furniture, remove legs, and flat-pack kitset furniture to reduce the space required. By utilizing all available space efficiently, you can optimize your storage unit and save on storage costs.


How should I store my fridge or freezer?

Before storing refrigerators and freezers, ensure they are completely defrosted and dry. Leave the door slightly open to allow for ventilation and prevent the growth of mold and mildew.


How should I store petrol powered garden tools?

For safe storage of petrol-powered items, drain the fuel prior to storage. This helps prevent corrosion and minimizes the risk of explosion or fire. By taking this precaution, you can ensure the longevity and safety of your equipment during storage.
