How to Store Your Items Safely

For those using our London mobile storage services, here are some hints and tips
on how to store your items safely.

Make a list

Make a list of everything going into storage, and everything that is not. Having a list of where everything is - whether it is in your secure storage space, still in your home, or being transported to your next destination - will reduce the risk of losing anything important. Plus, no one wants to spend hours looking for something that turns out to have been in mobile storage the whole time! Thus, having a comprehensive list of your items and their locations can reduce the risk of stress in the long run.

Pack your boxes wisely

Pack your boxes until they are full - but don’t overfill.

After all, you don’t want to be paying for space that you haven’t used. Pack smaller items into suitcases or experiment with arrangements until you find the most space-saving, and thus cost-effective, option. However, don’t overfill your boxes! This can make them more difficult to lift and stack and can end up costing you more money.

Fragile items

Remember to pay extra attention to fragile items.

Properly wrap all precious items to keep them safe during their time in storage.

Use old newspaper or bubble wrap to carefully protect glassware, ceramics, and other fragile items.

Perishable items

Avoid packing perishable items. As your mobile storage facilities will not be touched during the duration of your storage requirements, you might not find out that you have accidentally packed perishable items until after your container delivery.

So, ensure that no perishable items are packed into your mobile storage. Instead, consider our shipping options, where we can pack items into custom shipping containers and deliver perishable items to your destination in a timely manner.

Label your boxes

When everything is packed into the storage boxes, remember to label them. This might be something as simple as writing ‘kitchen’ or ‘bathroom’ on the lid, or even a detailed summary of every item inside.

This will save you time and effort when it comes to unpacking.

Stack your boxes

Stack your boxes in rows.

If you have opted for mobile self-storage, upon the container delivery, stack your boxes inside the container in rows, keeping larger and heavier boxes at the bottom and the lighter, smaller ones on top. Do so in a timely manner so your collection of items can run as smoothly as possible.

Boxes too heavy to lift

If something is too heavy to lift - don’t attempt to do it yourself

Why risk putting your back out, or seriously injuring yourself, when Kiwi Storage can lift and transport all your boxes for you? If you think your items will be too heavy to lift yourself, allow our removals experts to take care of everything for you, without you even needing to lift a finger. In fact, customer attendance isn’t even necessary!

Why is mobile storage a cost-effective and efficient solution?

The economical value of mobile storage often surprises people. It’s one of the most cost-effective storage options available when it comes to keeping your precious items safe and secure - even while on the move.

Feeling overwhelmed or stressed with your space? We can help. With this solution, you can keep a smaller home or office ahead of a move or interior shift instead of accommodating large or unnecessary items.

All you have to do is pack everything up, give us a call and our friendly, experienced team of movers will transfer your stuff to one of our highly secure units. Once you’ve moved in, set up, and settled into your new place or office space, we can deliver your goods back to you - or send them anywhere across the UK. We’re flexible like that.

Really friendly and had the two bed apartment packed up in around 3 hours. Very speedy yet careful unpacking too. If you’re looking to move in London couldn’t recommend them more, thoroughly professional service. ”

    “Fantastic experience form start to finish. Dan initially provided us a consultation over Zoom which was efficient, helpful and convenient. Following a competitive quote with a number of different options we were able to book the job. The staff were superb throughout; friendly, professional and punctual. The job was completed on time (somehow given how much stuff we had) and with the minimum effort from our part. ”

    “Kiwi movers have been brilliant to deal with from start to finish. We moved out of our flat in February and planned to have our items in their storage unit for just 2 weeks, which turned into 3 months after some purchase delays on our house. This was no problem for Kiwi movers and they were very easy to communicate with whenever we needed them. We’re now in our new place, with all our belongings and everything's perfect. Not a thing damaged or broken! Would highly recommend and use again down the line. ”
