Plan your self storage space carefully. Make a list of what you will be storing and map out your storage space to make the most efficient use of space:

Moving in

Ensure you pack items that you will access frequently into the truck first so these items will be packed into the unit last.

Dismantle larger items or any items with legs to make these items easy to move, and to maximise space in your storage unit.

Empty wardrobes, cupboards and drawers while moving to protect your furniture.

Ensure all larger items are covered with furniture covers, moving blankets or soft furnishings to protect them whilst in storage.

Artwork and mirrors

Always place mirrors in an upright position and protect them by securing between softer items such as mattresses for extra protection.


If storing kitchen appliances or whitegoods, be sure they are thoroughly clean, dry and defrosted to prevent moisture or mildew damaging your valuables. Store with doors slightly ajar. Don’t forget to check appliance hoses to ensure they are completely dry to prevent water damage.

Keep any extra hoses, nuts, bolts or extra hardware items in plastic bags secured to the appliance so everything required to operate the appliance is kept together.

Machinery, Equipment and Metal Items

Drain oil to reduce the risk of leakage, spillage and damage to other goods. Ensure all items are dry and clean, and wipe with a few drops of oil before storing to prevent rust. Keep these items secure and away from other items that may be damaged by rust.

What not to stores

Do not store anything combustible, perishable or harmful (including petrol, paint and paint thinner, gasoline, solvents, living things, plants or food that spoils). Ensure mowers, whipper snippers and equipment are emptied of petrol or other fuel, and that BBQ surfaces are clean and gas bottles are empty.
