At Absolute! the storage is so easy to use, it's like booking into a hotel room. Here are a few things to bear in mind when you're packing.

  • Use good quality storage boxes
  • Fill boxes to capacity; partially full or bulging boxes may tip or collapse
  • Heavy items should be packed into small boxes so they are easy to lift
  • Label or number boxes for easy reference when you need to locate goods
  • Make up an inventory of your stored items and keep it in a safe place at your home
  • Protect you fragile goods in bubble wrap
  • Crockery and glasses should be wrapped in bubble wrap
  • Garden equipment should be cleaned of dirt, petrol and oil before storing
  • Wrap table legs with bubble wrap before storing
  • Wardrobe boxes allow you to store your clothing on hangers which will keep their shape
  • Place heavy or bulky items in the unit 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
