Self Storage Hints And Tips For Packaging And Storing

Please see below Premier Self Storage’s top 20 hints and tips for packaging and storing:

  •   Use good quality storage boxes. All packing materials required can be purchased from our reception


  •  Fill boxes to capacity, as 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 tissue paper or bubble wrap before storing


  •   Garden equipment should be cleaned before storing


  •   Wrap table legs with bubble wrap before storing


  •   Wardrobe boxes allow you to store your clothing on hangers which keeps their shape


  •   Place heavy or bulky items in the room 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 maximise space stack similar sized boxes together


  •   Do not place heavy items on sofas or mattresses


  •   Always place a protective cover over your soft furnishings
