How to pack your goods

How to pack your goods
  • Packing the truck
    Looking to access any of your goods while in storage? What about that ladder or leaf blower? If so make sure that you pack these items into the truck first so that is will be packed into the unit last (near the door for easy access).

  • Planning ahead
    Plan your self storage space carefully. Place protection on concrete floors for mattresses, soft furnishings and books, use all space available – especially height, and place frequently accessed goods near the door!

  • Build a foundation
    Store large or heavy items towards the rear of the unit so that use can use the as a base to stack upon then pack towards the front and top of the unit with lighter more fragile items.

  • Building the walls
    Try to store longer items (such as mattresses, beds and tabletops) along the walls – this provides these items protection and generally allows for more items to be packed into the unit.
