  • General Storage Tips and Advice
  • Use available trolleys to transport your goods to the unit.
  • Plan your space. Stack bulky and heavy items at the bottom and to the back of the unit, leaving the goods you will need access to most in the front of the unit. See PLAN YOUR SPACE.
  • Place the most valuable items toward the back.
  • Wrap where you can, keeping things sealed and protected from dust and creepy crawlies. See our available wrappings from our supporting products on PRODUCT LIST.
  • Lock your unit with one of the heavy locks we provide you with when you become a tenant.
  • Make an inventory of your items and keep it safe.
  • Label everything. Even though you know exactly what you are putting in it at the time you move into your unit, it doesn’t mean in six or 12 months you want to be digging around to find something.
  • Use quality boxes and plastic crates and pack them so that they don’t collapse when stacked.
  • Cover furniture with a dust cover or sheet.
  • Leave air space between items and the walls for ventilation.
  • Ensure you have an aisle for access to the items at the back
  • Clean all items thoroughly (vacuuming for food crumbs, cleaning garden items, ensure fridges and/or freezers are completely clean and dry). Make sure everything else you pack is clean and dry to prevent mould and mildew.
  • Do not store perishables, such as food.
  • Do not store flammable items such as gasoline or fireworks.
  • Visit your unit periodically to check the condition of it and your possessions, and sweep it out at times.
