– Use strong sturdy cardboard boxes to pack your valuables and make sure that delicate items are wrapped in bubble wrap.

– Once packed up and ready to go, create a list of what you are storing. This will help in future when you need to know what is where.

– When filling your storage unit make sure to put everything in a place that is accessible. Leave some space for yourself to operate within the unit and try to have as many things labelled as possible.

– Do not bring any wet items into the container, as the water will remain trapped in the storage unit in a Kafkaesque cycle of evaporation, condensation and precipitation.

– Store appliances like fridges or dishwashers with the doors wedged open allowing for ventilation.
Stack up! Use the full height of your storage unit by putting the strongest items on the bottom and stacking lighter softer items on top.

– Bring the bulkiest items into the unit first.

Security

Our sites are equipped with lighting, CCTV, and GSM Automated gates. Additionally, many of our units are alarmed and all come with a high quality steel lock box and two padlocks. We also offer insurance to customers who wish to take it out to further give peace of mind.
