Tips & Tricks


  • Augmenting your storage space, using shelves, boxes and other organizers, you can get the maximum out of your storage unit.

  • Buffer for some walking/moving room in your unit. Packing it too full might not save you time if you need something that’s deep into your unit!

  • Categorize items by usage and place the more often used closer to the door! This will save you a lot of time from having to move the other items in and out just to get what you want.

  • Did you keep your boxes in the same size? They are easier to stack!

  • Ease those back pains by placing the heavier items below. If you fill them completely, they provide the most stable base.

  • Get a marker and label all boxes on all four sides for easy identification.

  • Have doubts on what can be stored? Check with us if you are unsure

  • Individually wrap glass. Wrapped glasses should be placed near the top of cartons. Fill all pockets with packing material. Label all boxes containing glassware and do not place heavy items on boxes containing glassware.

  • Justifiably, you have to wrap pictures and mirrors individually in bubble wrap too!

  • Keep clothings and curtains on hangers.

  • Lap up your storage space! Furniture with drawers can be utilized as storage places for china, silverware and small items. Wrap in tablecloths, towels or blankets to prevent breakage.

  • Make sure all cookery is clean

  • Never place the mattress with the “head” on the ground.

  • Oh! Always place a protective cover over your soft furnishings.

  • Pack books in sealed plastic and lay them flat to protect their spines.

  • Bicycles and other metal items will rust if not protected. To prevent rust, wipe all metal surfaces with the proper agent.

  • Refrigerator, freezer or washing machine should be thoroughly dried and stored with its door slightly opened. Larger appliances make excellent “packing cases” for blankets, towels, tablecloths and clothes.

  • Super important to clean all outside tools and equipment before packing.
