Checklist For Moving Items Into Storage

Storage Melbourne Checklist

While you’re moving house, renovating or relocating, Jake Removals and Storage Melbourne offers the perfect way to keep your stuff safe in the process. As with anything else, it’s best to plan your storage in advance and ensure every little detail is covered so nothing is left behind. By preparing correctly you’ll protect your items against damage, breakage and mould – all of which can cost more money in the long term in replacements and repairs.

What’s the best way to organise? With a storage checklist of course. Jake Removals Melbourne have 10+ years experience moving Australians, and we’ve put together the checklist below to make your move as fast, easy and stress-free as possible.

 Getting started

The first step is planning phase. Tick these boxes off 1-2 months before moving day if you can:

  • Confirm your storage items. List everything to store. Note if it’s fragile, as well as any other storage requirements.
  • Book your storage as spaces can be limited due to high demand.
  • Collect packaging materials. Purchase boxes, get your packing paper and tape ready. Pro tip – a tape gun will save you a lot of time.
  • Organise removal Call or email Jake Removals to lock in the move to storage. If storage is short term, book for the return trip as well.

 Packing Your Storage Items

 The best time to start packing is weeks before your move. Aim to get these done 2-4 weeks prior to the big day:

  • Check storage requirements. Some items can’t be stored, such as dangerous goods or foodstuffs. Review your packing list if needed.
  • Pack fragile items.Follow the right procedure to wrap and pack fragiles to prevent any damage. Label ‘fragile’ clearly.
  • Pack items in boxes. After fragiles, pack the rest of your smaller household items into strong, sturdy cardboard moving boxes.
  • Prepare your electronics. To pack electronics for storage, remove batteries and place items back in their original boxes for best protection.
  • Deconstruct furniture. Reduce your furniture to pieces if possible, and obtain some blankets or protective sheets to stop scratches and dents in transit.
  • Disconnect and drain whitegoods.Unplug your fridge, washer and dryer, and follow correct techniques for packing whitegoods to ensure they won’t produce mould.

Stack your storage area effectively

This information is useful if you are moving the items to storage yourself and would like to load the units to save on money. When moving your items into the storage unit, follow these tips for the best results:

  • Make use of every space. Maximise the space by filling every corner to make storage cheaper.
  • Place lighter items on top. Stack heavy items at the bottom to prevent crushing.
  • Mattresses on their side.Most miss this one – the best way to pack mattresses for storage are vertically. This protects the springs from damage.
  • Protect your items. Throw a plastic sheet on top of everything to protect from dripping or falling items.
  • Lock it up Padlocks are given from Jake Removals and keys can be kept in the office or given to yourself to hold onto.
