Hints and Tips

At all our sites our fully trained staff are on hand to help with all your storage requirements, but here are a few hints and tips:

  • Use our various boxes as this helps you make best use of the space and pay less.
  • Make sure boxes are properly filled, as partially filled boxes will collapse if heavy items are placed on them.
  • Mark your boxes with their contents and room.
  • Use our bubble wrap or packing paper for any fragile items.
  • Pack plates on their ends wrapped in packing paper. Wrap mirrors and pictures in our picture cartons and stack on their end.
  • Clean your garden equipment prior to storing.
  • We stock wardrobe cartons for your hanging clothes allowing for easy removal of your wardrobe contents.
  • Cover polished and other furniture in paper blankets for protection when moving and in store.
  • Utilise your space - pack smaller items in hollow spaces (wardrobes, sideboards etc).
  • Avoid placing heavy objects onto soft furniture.
  • White goods should be cleaned prior to storing. Defrost fridge and freezer, not forgetting to leave doors open.
  • Electrical items, if possible store in their original packaging and remove batteries, if fitted.
  • If dismantling furniture, use a small bag to keep all the bolts and screws together, attach them to the relevant item.
  • Use boxes to pack small items, bags are not easily stacked and can rip.
  • Keep all your essential items (handbag, mobile, keys, wallet, credit cards, and medication) in one handy box on the day of move.
