Boxes and Packaging Materials

The benefits of choosing the right Boxes and Packaging Materials

When you decide that storage is the right option for your belongings, the next step is moving your treasured items from A to B safely and securely.

Historically in order to keep cost to a minimum packaging and boxes were attempted to be sourced for free from local supermarkets or grocers but nowadays with space at a premium and recycling such an easy thing to do, decent boxes and packaging materials are harder to come by and could be a false economy in terms of time and fuel sent searching out good quality boxes for your self- storage.

That’s why buying boxes is the best option to keep your belongings safe and secure and here’s a few reasons why:

–          Boxes can be purchased from 1 place in the right quantity saving time, hassle and potential disappointment.

–          Storage World boxes are built for purpose so you can be sure of their durability and cleanliness.

–          Using uniformed boxes of similar size and shape make for more efficient stacking thus maximising the storage space you’re paying for.

–          Well made, sturdy boxes built for purpose offer greater protection for your belongings

–          Box sizes are usually in size order, small boxes, medium boxes, large boxes making them easier to work with than whatever is available.

–          Storage World boxes can be reused over and over and flatten easily for storage

Here’s how to choose the right boxes and packaging materials for your belongings to ultimately save money through having greater efficiency:

–          Use smaller boxes for heavier items such as books and use large boxes for lighter items such as clothing and bedding

–          Think about how much tape you will require.  You’ll need to tape the top and bottom for safety.  Remember to buy more tape than you think you need…it does run out quickly.

–          Try not to use newspaper to wrap items as the ink can transfer onto your items and spoil them.  Instead consider foam, bubble wrap or plain wrapping paper etc.

–          Shrink wrap is great for wrapping furniture as it protects it and also keeps the doors and drawers shut on the furniture – make sure to remove the shrink wrap once finished with.

–          At Storage World we’re committed to helping you protect your items for storage and our team can help advise on the most efficient packaging materials for your requirements.

Clean, safe and secure storage solution at an affordable price, highly recommend this place, very close to the heart of manchester, easy access in and out. Big thanks to Tricia and her team for sorting out my storage needs, very knowledgeable, professional and more importantly friendly.
Highly recommended.

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

Jeni on the desk was so increddibly helpful and went out of her way to make sure we were well set up and happy. Thanks very much to all at Storage World and particularly Jeni!

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
