  • Before you move anything into your storage unit it is a good idea to clean it thoroughly as this will protect it and your other items whilst they are being stored
  • Create an inventory. Before you start packing, make a list of everything that is going into your storage unit so you know exactly where your belongings are, there is nothing more frustrating than searching for something and realising it is actually being stored at home and not in your self-storage unit
  • Take photos of any valuable items in the unlikely event that you need to make an insurance claim, this will show your insurer the condition it was in when it was stored and that it was in your storage unit
  • If often makes it easier and more compact to dismantle any furniture you can before you pout it in your storage unit
  • Cover the floor of your storage unit with a thick sheet of plastic which will protect the bottom of your boxes and belongings from condensation which can cause mould and dampness. If you can, use wooden pallets to raise items from directly sitting on the concrete floor which is especially good if you are storing fabric furniture
  • When you arrive at your storage facility unload your belongings into the loading bay and use the storage facilities trolleys to move them to your unit. Be really careful not to overload the trolleys or overload them as your belongings can topple off when you move the trolley
  • Wrap furniture using dust covers or breathable fabrics which will prevent dust build-up. Wrapping furniture in plastic can trap any dampness inside and result in mould or mildew occurring so always make sure it is a breathable fabric

  • Using stackable boxes is easier and allows you to make the most of your vertical space
  • When packing smaller items into boxes don’t overload the boxes
