  • GETTING THE BEST VALUE FROM YOUR STORAGE SPACE
Freezers and fridges and some other white goods should be thoroughly dry clean before they come into the storage unit. When the unit has been placed in storage all doors on fridges should be slightly ajar or wedged open to prevent mildew. Remove any food scraps from appliances like toasters of microwaves as these attract vermin and can cause your unit to smell. Don’t forget to wrap shelves in fridges to make sure they are not broken in transit.
Empty all of the contents of wardrobes and cupboards and drawers to protect the shelving and the structure of these items as they are not designed to be transported full of clothing. They are too heavy. Use the correct removalist cartons available from our store to pack clothing and personal items to protect and maintain the condition. Remove legs from furniture like tables etc to avoid damage and create extra space in the storage space
Protecting fragile items by wrapping them up individually is the most important part of packing glassware and dishes. Do not use newspaper is as the ink in stain glassware. We have special packing paper in our offices ask us for details. Do not overload boxes as they become very heavy very quickly filled with glassware or crockery. Stand plates and sources and platters on the edges in boxes do not stack them horizontally always make sure that the cartons have no gaps in them using scrunch paper or bubble wrap.
Lawn mowers whipper snippers and chainsaws should all be drained of fuel. Do not store partially filled fuel tins either. All fuels must be drained. These are fire hazards. Remove batteries from battery-operated equipment and store batteries separately do not leave them stored together as corrosion can travel from one battery to another. Store your computers in boxes with bubble wrap, keep all the cables together in one box and protect screens with bubble wrap. Remove batteries from any keyboards
Large screen televisions are very delicate and are prone to damage if not stored correctly. Ideally they should be packed back in their original box. If you don’t have one of these cartons available, then the next best thing is to wrap the screen with a blanket. Make sure the blanket covers the entire screen. Store the television up right do not store it on its face or on its back as it will be permanently damaged. Record players should be stored with the arms secured. Record should never be stored horizontally only vertically to prevent them from being warped.

to get the best value from your storage space it’s important to plan early to make sure that items that are not being used or do not need to be accessed regularly are stored at the back of the space. Store the largest items at the rear. Store tables on their ends and you can store cartons between the legs of tables. Put small items on the top of large items as they have less chance of falling down and use all of the space right to the roof of the storage space if you can. Store cardboard cartons together all of the same size so they stack easily and put the heaviest ones on the bottom.

Items that you plan to access regularly store them at the front of the storage space and also allow yourself some space to get into the unit and get to your goods. Make sure the cartons are not overflowing and bulging, they do not stack properly and are easily damaged. Make sure you do not make cartons too heavy as they are hard to transport and a hard for removalists to lift. Mark each carton on the top and the side of what is content is and what room it belongs to. Don’t commit cartons to memory you will forget!
