  Storage Tips

Before You Store It

  • Make sure your goods are dry and clean before you put them into store. Drain and wipe down freezers, refrigerators and washing machines.
  • Pack your property into good quality plastic or cardboard storage boxes. Both can be purchased from local stationary stores, along with tape and bubble wrap.
  • Fill storage boxes to capacity, using soft padding where appropriate. Partially full or bulging boxes may collapse or tip over.
  • Pack heavier items like files and books in smaller boxes so they aren’t too heavy.
  • Label or number boxes for easy reference and keep an inventory of what you have stored.
  • Protect fragile items with bubble wrap and avoid putting heavy items on top.
  • Use wardrobe boxes to keep clothes in shape.
  • Remove all perishable and inflammable items like food, aerosols, batteries and oil/petrol.
  • Dismantle furniture where possible and detach legs from tables and beds to save space.
  • Remember, lift heavy items correctly: bend your knees not your back.

Making the most of your space

  • Plan your storage. Put items you may need at the front.
  • Remember, you can visit your storage unit as often as you want.
  • Position boxes and items of similar size together to minimize wastage of space.
  • Leave space for access to the rear of the unit.
  • Place dust sheets or protective covering over soft furnishings.
  • Stand mattresses on end and avoid stacking heavy items on soft furnishings.
  • Stack chairs seat to seat.
  • Use dust sheets to cover your property and on the floor of the storage unit.
  • Use furniture covers or dust sheets between surfaces to protect from scratches.
