We have been involved in the self – storage business for years. Here’s a few helpful tips.
- Start off by laying down some plastic sheeting
- Use good quality boxes that will not collapse when storing items
- Leave a walkway down the middle
- Place a list /map of where your items are on the door and keep frequently accessed items to the front of your unit
- Label your boxes carefully and write on the sides and the top –if you have time keep an inventory on your computer or take a photo with your phone
- For each box place heavy items on the bottom and then lighter items above
- Fill boxes to capacity wherever possible to avoid breakages but avoid making them too heavy – remember you’ll have to be able to lift them. You can use materials such as paper or towels or can buy special packing. You might be stacking boxes on top of each other and the lower levels need to be sturdy enough to take the strain
- Boxes that are only partly filled may tip over or collapse
- Allow for air circulation
- Place any valuables towards the rear of the room/unit
- Pack books flat to avoid damaging their spines
- Try to pack to the ceiling by placing heavier items like drawers and wardrobes on the floor and lighter/fragile items on top. Fill all the spaces/gaps that appear with small items or soft items like bedding
- When stacking boxes up high always place heavy boxes at the bottom and lighter/fragile ones on top
- Keep a step stool so that you can reach your boxes
- Bikes, Metal Equipment and Tools can be prevented from rusting if they are to be in storage for a long time by wiping with an oily rag before storing
- Clean garden equipment before you store it to prevent corrosion
- Make sure that all appliances are clean and dry and empty, Make sure that freezers/fridges are completely defrosted and wedge the doors open to let the air circulate
- Drain washing machines and tie up the hoses
- If storing clothes it is worth investing in wardrobe or clothes boxes – you’ll then be able to simply hang the clothes in them
- For beds and furniture cover and pack with protective materials to keep their perfect condition
- It’s obvious but avoid packing anything damp or wet
- Drain the fuel tanks of lawnmowers, petrol strimmers etc before storing – this is safer and avoids fumes contaminating any long-term storage items.
