When you put items into self storage, it is important to take steps to pack them properly so you can optimise efficiency and organisation. Firstly, it is important to ensure that all boxes are securely sealed and properly packed. Naturally, once you seal the box it can be difficult to determine exactly what is in it without opening it again. This can cause delays if you want to retrieve your items quickly.
To avoid damage and delays whilst also ensuring your peace of mind, you should ensure delicate items that go in boxes are wrapped safely with bubble wrap. You can use polystyrene void filler for additional protection. Ensuring each box is properly labelled is also a wise idea, as this will save you from having to unpack them to find out what is in them.
Furnishings may also need additional protection if you want to ensure they are safe in storage. Paper or cloth transit blankets can be used to cover the items. Alternatively you could use plastic wrap to achieve this.
