Cutting Costs

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.

Making Lists

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.

Preparation is Key

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.

Wrap Carefully

Don’t wrap precious items in newspaper as the print can rub off.

Fragile Items

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.



Label all boxes clearly including the room to which they belong as this will help when retrieving goods from storage, as well as save time when unpacking.


Avoid unpleasant retrievals by cleaning your garden equipment before storing.


Large Items

Store large and heavy items at the bottom.

Maximise Space

Use the spaces in drawers and wardrobes to store boxes and paperwork to save space and storage costs.


Protect furniture with dust sheets and wrap table and chair legs to prevent scratching.


Remove batteries from all electrical items.


Heavy 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.

Fridges and Freezers

Make sure that fridges and freezers are fully defrosted to avoid water damage, and where possible leave the doors open to allow ventilation.


Unit Access

If more than one person is going to need access to the unit, use a combination lock.
