Is your garage overflowing with junk? Is little Johnny’s winter sports gear taking up precious garage space during summer? Do you struggle to find things in the garage, or perhaps even trip over boxes trying to get to the car? Sounds like your garage is in need of a big clean up. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. For many people the garage is the room in the home where unwanted or unused items, sporting and gardening equipment and supplies, and car and hardware parts end up. Ready to get that garage organised? Looking for affordable storage Melbourne city? You’ve come to the right place! Cheap Furniture Storage offer a range of storage services for extremely low prices! Here is our super simple guide to organising your garage:
Assess your shelving situation
Do you have much shelving in your garage? If the answer is ‘yes’, are you making the most of your shelving space? If the answer is ‘no, or ‘not enough’, it’s time to invest in some shelving. Shelving is a cheap and quite simple way to free up space on the ground and organising things in a logical and easy-to-find way. Most hardware stores and places like Ikea will have shelving options that will suit your space and budget and be easy to install.
Hanging wall racks are another great way of freeing up your precious garage ground space. If you have surfboards, overhead ceiling racks are an ideal way to get them off the floor. Wall racks are also extremely handy for storing garden items like rakes, shovels, brooms, whipper snippers, and any other long items. Wall racks will free up both shelf and floor space and can be found at hardware stores, surf stores, and other larger supermarkets.
Chuck it, sell it, or donate it
The easiest way to free up space and de-clutter your garage is by getting rid of items that are unused, unnecessary, or broken. Be ruthless, get rid of anything that you haven’t used in more than a year. Throw away broken items that you will never get around to fixing, donate items you simply don’t need to charity, or sell items online or at a garage sale.
Put your belongings into a storage unit!
If you have followed the above tips and still have a cluttered garage, your best, easiest, and cheapest option is to put your things into a self storage unit. Choose a reliable company like Cheap Furniture Storage and you will have a spotless garage in no time, with the peace of mind that your belongings are safe and sound in a state of the art facility!
