There are advisable things you may wish to consider
before you start


Fill boxes to capacity, partially full or bulging boxes may tip or collapse.

Heavy items should be packed into small boxes making them easy to lift.

Label or number boxes for easy reference when you need to locate goods.

Make an inventory of your stored items and keep it in a safe place.

Leave refrigerator or freezer doors open for ventilation.

Garden equipment should be cleaned before storage.

Avoid stacking or leaning furniture against outside walls to aid ventilation


Use good quality storage boxes – we sell cardboard boxes.

Place bulky items in the unit first to provide a good stacking base.

Put those items that you need to get most often near the front.

To maximise space stack similar sized boxes together.

Stack chairs seat to seat with cloth or paper to separate them.

Do not place heavy items on sofas or mattresses.

Always place a protective cover over your soft furnishings.
