Know your items are properly insured
At Kiwi Storage, we know that many students might have never used a storage service before, and even then, it's always good to get the most for your money’s worth! Therefore, we have compiled a list of some of the best tips and tricks for making the most of our services - it's all part of our Kiwi charm and great customer service.
Use good quality packing materials
We can provide these for you! Our top-quality packing materials include packing tape, bubble wrap, packing paper, sofa covers, mattress covers, and a wide range of boxes that are double-walled for strength.
Use smaller boxes for heavier items
Putting heavier items in smaller boxes can help you to ensure that no boxes are overloaded or too heavy to lift, making transportation easier.
List all the items that you have put into storage
This will allow you to make sure that you know exactly where everything is at all times, eliminating any potential panic over items you believe to be lost.
Make sure all boxes are full
If boxes aren’t full, your belongings can rattle about, which can result in your goods being damaged. Therefore, fill all boxes to capacity - but do not overfill as this can make stacking the boxes in the unit unstable.
Label your boxes
Label the boxes as you are packing, making sure to note which boxes are staying with you and which ones will be going into storage to make the process more streamlined and efficient.
Protect precious items
Ensure that any fragile items are wrapped in bubble wrap, important documents are accounted for, and priceless goods are properly protected.
Choose a local storage company
Choose a company that has locations in your local area so that you can quickly and easily get to your items if and when you need them. Kiwi Storage has locations in Esher, Kingston, Richmond, East Molesey, West Molesey,, Weybridge, Surbiton, Teddington, Twickenham, Wimbledon and, of course, our mobile storage solution that comes right to your door!
Look at the accessibility of the storage units to make sure that it is the right solution for you. Our buildings benefit from 24/7 access to a lockable unit, 7 days a week off-street parking, and modern facilities with good access.
Ensure your storage has good security
If you want to make sure that your items are safe whilst in storage, it is essential to ensure that your unit has good security. Kiwi Storage provides CCTV security, lockable units accessed by combination code lock and personalised access code, and number plate and facial recognition across the facility.
KIWI STUDENT STORAGE FAQ
How much will storage cost?
The price per unit is determined by the size of the room you need. The rental charge is calculated according to the amount of floor space of the storage room, the smaller the floor area the lower the price.
Prices may also vary on the unit location in the storage centre. For instance ground floor and closer to access doors may be a higher price than on a higher level requiring lift or stair access.
Are there any hidden costs?
In a word No. You simply pay for the storage you need.
You will need to provide proof of insurance from your household cover or take out insurance through us on a new for old basis.
What size storage will I need?
Please refer to our unit size comparison which provides useful information to help you work out how much storage you need. Alternatively one of our helpful team can assist you with selecting the right size unit.
