Lockhurst Self Storage Coventry
Lockhurst Self Storage 232 Holbrook Lane, Coventry CV6 4DD
Self Storage | Coventry | Bedworth | Nuneaton | Leamington | Rugby | Kenilworth
Preparation
Plan ahead. Contact Lockhurst Self Storage to reserve your container and plan your transportation arrangements.
Use suitable covers to protect your soft furnishings
Pack cushions and other similar loose items from your furnishings and pack them into cartons.
Clean any ‘outside’ or dirty equipment prior to storing.
If anything is being stored that has an engine, such as a mower, it must be drained of fuel.
Packing up
When storing multiple items it’s usually a good idea to work to a logical method, for instance packing up all items from one room at a time.
Make an inventory of the items you intend to store and remember to mark up each carton as you go. It’s really easy to forget what went where when you stack a whole load of cartons that all look the same!
Try not to make cartons too heavy to lift and carry. It’s a good rule of thumb to pack each carton so that it can be lifted by one person.
It’s usually a good idea to use bubble wrap at the bottom of each carton for protection and, for maximum protection, use bubble wrap between layers.
Choose appropriately sized packing cartons to suit the nature and weight of the contents. For example, books into small cartons, crockery into medium-size cartons and pillows/duvets into large cartons.
Pack cartons so that they are full in order to avoid the risk of crushing when other items are loaded on top of them.
When packing a carton with mixed items, put the heaviest items at the bottom and the lighter ones towards the top. Also try to pack everything into the cartons so that is no room for them to move about.
Crockery and glassware plates are best wrapped and stacked horizontally within cartons and glasses are best wrapped and packed upright.
Be careful not to pack up any fluids that might spill and damage your other contents.
Perishable items, such as foodstuffs, are not to be stored in our containers.
Remove batteries from electrical items such as remote controls, clocks and children’s toys.
Remove light bulbs from lamps and separate lampshades from their bases.
Storage
Plan your space before you start unloading! Put large items or items that you don’t need access to at the back and smaller items or items that you may need to access more frequently at the front of your container.
When stacking items on top of each other, it’s best to keep heavy items to the bottom and lighter items on the top.
Chairs can often be stored more compactly by turning one upside down on or around another. Sofas are often better stacked on end or bridging across other items. It’s advisable to use protective layers such as bubble wrap or blankets, between some items such as furniture with a polished or delicate surface.
If you expect to make frequent visits to your storage unit then it’s often a good idea to stack everything so that you have internal handling or access space. If you’ll be visiting only infrequently, or not at all, then it’s usually better to fill all the space.
