Packing Tips

The following tips will help you make the best use of your space and ensure safe and secure storage for your belongings.

  • A box for everything and everything in a box is the best protection for your goods. Use uniform sizes of boxes and stack them shoulder high to maximise your total storage space.
  • Do not place heavy or sharp objects on top of upholstered furniture
  • Protect your mattress, sofa, and chairs with specifically designed plastic covers
  • Cover the entire load with a light plastic cover
  • Use a good quality lock on your locker door. Cheap locks rust.
  • Breakables and Fragile items: Should be wrapped in bubble wrap and packaged carefully in cartons marked ‘fragile’.
  • Cartons: Go easy on your back. Keep weight of all packing cartons under 15kg. With a marking pen, list contents and destination on each carton.
  • Appliances: Tape all appliance doors shut when moving, although wedge doors open while in storage, secure all moving parts, wrap small appliances in bubble wrap for protection. Placing charcoal inside the refrigerator will combat mould.
  • To save time and ironing, clothing that ordinarily hangs in a closet should be packed in a port-a-robe carton.
