Self-storage Packing Tips

We all think we know how to pack - until we actually have to get round to it! In this section you'll find some tips to help you source and utilize the best self-storage space for your needs:

Packing for self-storage is an art and you'll need to put some thought into it before you begin. After all, one of the primary advantages of using a self-storage facility is the fact that you can continue to access your items even in storage.

1} Invest in good quality sturdy boxes and packing materials - box strength degrades with use. If you buy boxes of similar sizes it'll be easier to stack them securely in the self-storage facility and will save you space.

2} Box everything that you can - everything that is left unboxed in a self-storage facility may get dusty and potentially dirty.

3} 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 to fill spaces if necessary. Depending on the space you opt to rent from Locker Locker, 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.

4} Label all boxes clearly so you can identify the contents and keep an inventory. Label them on more than one side so you can see what's what quickly. Mark 'Fragile' on any boxes containing breakable items.

5} Don't be tempted to fill large boxes with heavy items such as books as they'll quickly become impossible to carry and may break. You can buy small book boxes from Locker Locker that will do the job just as well. If you do pack heavy items in a large box put in just a few and then fill the box up with lighter items.

6} Don't pack items into sealed plastic bags, as humidity can cause mildew.

7} Pack books flat to avoid damaging their spines.

8} Don't store wet items in a self-storage facility as they can cause water damage, mold and mildew.
