 Planning well in advance will make the process of moving your items into storage simple and stress-free.


Start by talking to us about packaging and storage supplies. We have a specialised range to suit everyone’s needs, from various sized boxes with tape to bubble wrap, packing paper and mattress covers.

Create a list of what you want need to store and check what needs to be packaged in advance, this gives you time to collect all the packaging supplies you may need. Our professional and friendly team are here to give you advice, 6 days a week, so give us a call or pop in to discuss your packaging and storage requirements.

It may be helpful to check out our size estimator to make sure you are requesting the correct storage space.  

Dismantling furniture will free up more space in your storage unit, if possible we recommend items like wardrobes and book cases to be flat-packed. Always make sure to put the screws, nuts and bolts in a plastic bag and sellotape the bag to the furniture.

Check if anything contains liquids or fluids – these may need to be drained before packing or storing.

Make sure that filing cabinets drawers and cupboard doors are secure so that they do not create problems in transit. It may make your life easier to remove the contents of your furniture for transit and replace them once you arrive at Box Clever Storage.

For electrical items that contain batteries, make sure you remove any batteries before storing, as they may leak and damage your items.
