Self Storage Tips & Hints

Questions about packing or storing your goods in self-storage?
We provide some tips and hints on how to pack and store your goods in your storage unit.  If you have any more queries, feel free to contact us.

 

Packing

Proper packing and wrapping of your goods will help protect them while in storage. Use plenty of bubble wrap, newspaper or plastic wrap. Even use old sheets and towels to cover valuable items that mark easily like tables, chairs and wall units. Storage Park has a range of tapes, boxes and wrappings.

 

Storing

Place heavy solid items on the bottom and toward the rear of the storage unit. Then use boxes of lighter items on the top and where possible stack right up to just below the roof. This will ensure you make the most of the available space in the storage unit. Do not stack right to the roof as in summer the roof gets hot and can damage some goods.

 

Access

If you need access to some of your goods in storage you should rent a slightly larger unit, and ensure you place the items you are likely to use at the front.

 

Security

Write on each box which room the items are from, but do not write anything which may indicate where you have valuables stored. Such valuables should be well packed in boxes and in no way visible.

 

Vermin Proetection

While the containers are very secure, it is advisable to place some vermin bait in the unit to ensure your goods stay in top condition. It is also advised that you or someone you know checks on your goods at least every 3 months.

 

Insurance

You should check with your existing insurance company to see that your goods are covered while in storage.
