Storage Hacks: Sprucing Up Your Garage

 Do you think your garage looks like a dumping ground? If yes then it is time to tidy up the garage space and realise how useful a garage is when it comes to providing space aplenty.
 
How can storage units help?
 
Many a times, you realise that for example if only the lawn mowers could be moved somewhere else I could have arranged for a storage cabinet for my basket ball gear. Here, the lawn mower is not an item of everyday use. Hence, such items can be transferred to safe storage units. In this way you get to make space for frequently used items in your garage thus solving your ‘whether-I-should-buy-this-or-not’ dilemma. Storage units help you to not only make space in your garage but also de-clutter your home.

Secure Storage: Packaging

Packaging should not only make a ‘thing’ look good but also help it justify its shelf life; if possible sustain beyond its shelf life. Read on to learn some quick packaging tips for effective storage.

Package as per the audience

iPhone appeals to a certain segment of people due to its superlative design and packaging. All in all, it makes for a great aesthetic pleasure. It is designed keeping in mind the values that drive the behaviour of its customers or target market. Package the item keeping your audience in mind. Will they be attracted to your product? Does the packaging reflect your target audience’s standard of living? Needs? Wants? Desires?

Pack to protect   

This applies especially to FMCG products. Packaging plays a significant role in determining whether your product will reach its destination unharmed or not. Packaging should consider the intricacies involved from storing to distribution; is it possible to package a product in the best way such that it sustains everything in between?

Importance of consistency

Standardized packaging for multiple goods reduces production costs. The task of loading the packaged goods quickly, storing them in warehouses and delivering to the desired destination becomes easy when packaging is consistent.

For instance, round bottles leave wide gaps when kept upon each other posing a threat of tumbling down if not tied well together. Also, a lot of space goes unconsumed. All this can be avoided by using square boxes.

Contact Beirut International Movers if you are looking for a reliable and reputed storage and moving company that also provides secure packaging.
