Are there restrictions on what I can store?

We pride ourselves on helping as much as possible, and will store anything that fits into our units and is legally possible. The law does have various restrictions on what can or cannot be stored in a storage facility. You are unable to store anything flammable, dangerous, explosive, illegal, perishable and environmentally harmful. While this may seem fairly obvious, it is something that is quite easily forgotten about. If you are between houses, using our facility for furniture storage can make things simpler for you, just remember to check about electrical appliances and items that use water to reduce the risk of mould during the storage time.

Storage tips

Moving home? We understand that this can be a stressful process to go through, with so many different things to think about storage is easily forgotten about. However this is something you need to tackle right away.

As we are charging for the space you use, we highly recommend taking advantage of this by preparing your storage as much as possible, as this can help you save money! We also recommend preparing so our service runs as efficiently and conveniently as possible, we want you to get the most out of our service. It is always great to be prepared for something like this, as it always takes longer than your originally anticipate and it is good to get an idea of what items you will actually need.

Planning before packing

Before you have even started to pack, you need to decide what items you are going to be keeping and what you no longer need! There is little point keeping possessions that you no longer have any use for or intention to put to use again. This is can help save time and money, the last thing you want to do is waste money on storing items you no longer want! Also, a new home is a fresh start, so use this opportunity to have a much needed clear out.

Now you have the items you want to take, it is time to start making a plan. This is when you should decide how you are going to pack up your items, you need to determine what will be packed together and how.

Finally, write an inventory. While we will do our own inventory it is still a good idea for you to do one, just so you know exactly what you have packed. This will also help you prepare for welcoming back these possessions into your new home, helping you create a picture of what your new home will look like and where to store things once they arrive.

Moving and Storing Furniture

Storing furniture is not a problem, however to meet safety regulations and guidelines there are certain measures that have to be taken with some of your appliances.

  • If you wish to store fridges or freezers then they must be completely empty, this is because we are not allowed to store anything that is perishable.
  • Make sure your fridge is drained; while dishwashers and washing machines should also be drained. It can be best to do this a few days in davance to allow them to dry completely before going into storage and reducing risk of mould. Another tip is to place an absorbant item in the fridge or freezer, even a handful of tea bags will help take excess moisture out of the appliance.
  • All doors on appliances and furniture are taped up, this is a safety measure to prevent any potential injury to our removalists.
  • Tape up any wires or cords that are on appliances, taping them on the side of the appliance is the most effective way to do this as it will help ensure no damage is done.
  • Empty any furniture drawers.
Packing Your Items for Storage

You are nearly there, by now you will have a solid plan and all of your other furniture and appliances are ready to be moved. At this point you probably have a big pile of stuff on the floor, but your plan will soon help you finish the job!

  • Start with your larger items – it is best to have larger, heavier items at the bottom of the box and the lighter items on top.
  • While you are packing items away make sure you clearly label all of the boxes, to help make the unloading process as easy as possible.
  • Wrap all breakables in bubble wrap – while we guarantee to handle your items carefully, it is still a good idea to do this.
  • Don’t try to store too much in one box – this could lead to breakages.
  • Ensure you tape up the bottom of each box, especially if it contains heavy items. This is to make sure nothing falls out of the bottom.
  • Never use plastic bags – while these may seem a convenient option, heat could cause mould to grow.
