Move it yourself

We know when you are moving that it is a stressful time and hopefully some of the advice listed below will help make the moving process a little easier.

Packing Tips And Tricks

Our StorageWise experts will be able to help you with the most efficient solution to your storage problems. They will advise you on every detail of your move-in including size estimation, packing, local removal companies and a quotation.

Label or number your boxes for easy reference. Make an inventory of all your items for storage. Make sure your goods are clean and dry before you put them into the store. Drain and wipe down freezers, refrigerators, washing machines and keep the top/door open for ventilation. Protect fragile items in bubble wrap and mark them as fragile and avoid putting heavy items on top.

Place heavy or bulky items in the unit first. Use small boxes for heavy items. Put all the items that you need to access all the time at the front. To maximise storage space stack similar boxes together. Avoid stacking or leaning furniture against the walls of the unit. Dismantle furniture where possible and remove legs from tables and beds to save you some room.

Cover your goods with dust sheets to protect against dust. Use good quality storage boxes which we can provide for you. To get a better idea of how much space you will need, please access our Storage Space Estimator

Moving Day

Don’t rush throwing things onto the moving truck without thought behind it. This mistake could be timely if things get damaged or something is forgotten. You’ll also feel a lot more stress if you’re rushing around. Be diligent but don’t rush. You need to determine which items need to be moved first, and which items can be loaded into your new home last.

We can also help with your moving needs. You can move in yourself or avail of our free move-in service or use furniture removers that we recommend. For more information please click here
