Important tips for selecting a storage box

Storage box - what size do I need?

Please note the following points when selecting your storage box:

  • In order to save space and money, you should stack and unscrew your things as much as possible.
  • Even your longest item must fit into the storage box: take a close look at the dimensions.
  • You need some space to move around in the storage box. If you want to go with your stuff on a regular basis, you should arrange it in such a way that you can easily get there.
