PACKING TIPS:

  • Use good quality storage boxes, we sell cardboard boxes

  • Fill boxes to capacity, partially full or bulging boxes may tip or collapse

  • Heavy items should be packed into small boxes so that they are easy to lift

  • Label or number boxes for easy reference when you need to locate your goods

  • Make up an inventory of your stored items and keep it in a safe place at home

  • Protect your fragile goods in bubble wrap

  • Dishes and glasses should be wrapped in paper or bubble wrap before storing

  • Garden equipment should be cleaned before storing

  • Wrap table legs with bubble wrap before storing

  • Place heavy or bulky items in the unit first to provide a good stacking base

  • Plan your storage space- put those items that you need to get to most often near the front, close to the door

  • To maximize space stack similar sized boxes together

  • Do not place heavy items on sofas or mattresses

  • Always place a protective cover over your soft furnishings

  • Stack chairs seat to seat with cloth or paper to separate them

  • Leave refrigerator or freezer doors open for ventilation

  • Pictures and mirrors should be wrapped in mirror boxes, marked fragile and stacked on their end

  • Avoid stacking or leaning furniture against outside walls to aid ventilation

  • Cover your goods with dust sheets to protect against dust
