Self Storage Tips

  • Use good quality storage boxes. We sell cardboard boxes and everything you could need
  • Fill boxes to capacity, as partially full or bulging boxes may tip or collapse
  • Heavy items should be packed into small boxes so that they are easy to lift
  • Label or number boxes for easy reference when you need to locate your goods
  • Make up an inventory of your stored items and keep it in a safe place at home
  • Protect your fragile goods in bubble wrap
  • Dishes and glasses should be wrapped in tissue paper or bubble wrap before storing
  • Garden equipment should be cleaned before storing
  • Wrap table legs with bubble wrap before storing
  • Wardrobe boxes allow you to store your clothing on hangers which keeps their shape
  • Place heavy or bulky items in the room first to provide a good stacking base
  • Plan your storage space - put those items that you need to get to most often near the front, close to the door
  • To maximise space stack similar sized boxes together
  • Do not place heavy items on sofas or mattresses
  • Always place a protective cover over your soft furnishings
  • Stack chairs seat to seat with cloth or paper to separate them
  • Leave refrigerator or freezer doors open for ventilation
  • Pictures and mirrors should be bubble wrapped and securely stored in boxes, marked fragile and stacked on their end
  • Avoid stacking or leaning furniture against outside walls to aid ventilation
  • Cover your goods with dust sheets to protect against dust during the move

What our customers say

We used Viking Self Storage to de-clutter our house while it was on the market and were delighted with the service. The team at Viking were really helpful the facility is well lit and the unit was fresh and clean. Being able to access our unit late in the evening was a great benefit. Recommended.
