No one wants to pay more for storage than they need to, and as such Knightcott Self Storage feel that some of the following tips will help you to pack and store more efficiently. This will save time packing and money when storing.
Make a list of everything you intend to store. Note which items can be taken apart for easier transport and reduced storage costs.
Keep all your essential items (keys, mobile, wallet, and medication) in easy to find places. If you are going to need access to certain items during the duration of the storage period, keep them close to the door.
Start packing your non-essential items early, for example, extra clothes, paintings, ornaments, etc. Packing garages and lofts first is a good place to start.
Don’t wrap precious items in newspaper as the print can rub off.
Take care when stacking plates. These can be heavy, and the bottom ones can break; instead, wrap them in paper and pack them on their ends. Glass panes should be stacked upright.
Protect furniture with dust sheets and wrap table and chair legs to prevent scratching.
Remove batteries from all electrical items.
Store heavy items in smaller boxes where possible to make lifting easier. Store china and other breakables in stronger cardboard boxes wrapped with bubble wrap or tissue paper.
Make sure that fridges and freezers are fully defrosted to avoid water damage, and where possible leave the doors open to allow ventilation.
