    Ultimate 'Packing for Storage' Checklist

    Add a Comment 16th June 2017   Inspirational   

    Renovating your home is an exciting project. It’s a time where you finally get to put all of your dreams and ambitions into practice, turning your house into your dream home. However, along with all the excitement there is a rather large dilemma – what am I going to do with all of my belongings?

    Well, that’s where storage comes in—professional furniture storage facilities will keep all your treasures safe and sound, free from dust, dirt, mould, mildew, pests and vermin. But, if you’re going to go down the storage route, you need to know how to pack properly for storage. It may not seem like it, but packing for storage is a little different to packing for a move.

    Inventory First

    Your inventory is your most important document and that’s why you need to create one before you do anything else. Creating an inventory allows you to make important decisions about what you really need to store. The old maxim, ‘if in doubt throw it out’ certainly applies here. The cost of storage is based on volume so don’t bother paying to store anything that you don’t need.

    After you’ve finished your inventory it’s time to start preparing your belongings for storage.

    Packing Properly

    • If you’re planning on storing your treasures long-term, then you need to pack them properly to ensure they’ll last the distance. That means double wrapping all delicate items and ensuring that leather and wooden goods have been treated to protect them from damp.
    • Whitegoods need special attention when it comes to storage. Firstly, they need to be thoroughly cleaned and secondly the doors and lids need to be kept open. If you leave the lids and doors shut, strong odours can build up and you can also damage the rubber seals.
    • If you’re storing machinery you need to ensure that you have drained all oils and fuel. Failure to do so creates a significant safety hazard so make sure you check each item before you place it in storage.
    • When it comes to electrical items, if you still have their original boxes, then pop them back inside. After all, these boxes were custom built with protection in mind. If you threw out the box long ago, just use a regular box, topped up with plenty of packing material to keep your electrical items safe.
    • Remember to remove batteries from all electrical items, toys, and smaller items such as television remotes. Again, this is important if you’re storing long-term—batteries have been known to leak, and the last thing you want is battery acid all over your storage facility.

    Maximising Your Storage Space

    • The first step to maximising your space is making sure you pack all the way to the roof. The best way to do this is to use sheets of plywood to divide and stabilise layers of boxes.
    • You can give your belongings extra protection by keeping them off the floor and away from moisture. An easy way to do this is to use wooden pallets to create a base at the bottom of your unit.
    • As well as protecting your belongings you need to protect the space itself, so make sure that everything is wrapped in plastic to prevent the unit from spills, leaks and other damage.
    • An effective labeling system will make your life a lot easier if you have to access anything while it is in storage. So, create a system that works for you and ensure it matches up with your inventory.

    Tips for Moving In Hot Weather

    Add a Comment 5th January 2017   Inspirational   

    Australians love Summer. Adelaide certainly gets its fair share of summer days. As the capital of the driest state in Australia, our summers are filled with plenty of 30+ days, endless blue skies and myriad opportunities to get out and enjoy the sun.

    However, there are some things that aren’t ideal hot weather activities, including moving house. So, if you’re planning to move house over the next couple of months, the tips below will help ensure you survive the ordeal.

    Slip, Slop, Slap

    The ‘Slip, Slop, Slap’ rule actually applies to any activity in hot weather but particularly to moving house. You may not realise it at the time, but you spend an awful lot of time out in the sun’s rays while you’re moving. Every time you traipse out to the moving truck, your personal UV index will skyrocket. So, make sure you apply a liberal amount of sunscreen at the start of the day, and throughout.

    Not only that, the natural tendency during hot weather is to wear as little as possible. The thing is, stripping off actually opens you up to sunburn, rather than keeping you cool. It’s better to wear a long sleeve, light shirt to keep the sun off you and allow the heat to escape.

    You don’t want to spend your first night in your new home wincing with sunburn, so never ignore this first tip.

    Have A Water Supply Handy

    Moving day is always busy. You may be so focused on getting everything done that you forget to stay hydrated. Always keep a water bottle close by to reminds you to have a sip every now and then. You can even get lanyards that keep the bottle attached around your neck. Remember, nothing hydrates like water. Stay away from sugary or fizzy drinks because, while they might taste nice, they only increase your dehydration levels.

    Get Started Early

    The hottest part of the day is between 11am and 4pm so you want to ensure that the moving truck is packed and ready to go before 11am. By getting up earlier, you can get most of the work done during the cooler hours and spend the hottest part of the day inside setting up your new home.

    Protect Your Belongings

    Electronic equipment, photos, plants and other delicate items can get damaged by heat so make sure the boxes that contain these items are placed in the truck first or last. Never leave them sitting out in direct sunlight for too long.

    Look After Your Pets

    The ideal situation would be to have a friend or family member look after your pets on moving day, particularly if the mercury is expected to raise the roof. With all the chores that you’ll need to do, you simply might not have the time to check on them, and keep them cool. Organise a pet sitting to make sure they don’t suffer heat stroke.

    Keep The Car Running

    About 15 minutes before you plan on jumping into your car or the moving van, switch it on and pump up the air-conditioning (obviously make sure that the car battery doesn’t run flat in the process). Cooling down your vehicle before you get in will make the world of difference, particularly if you’re hot already from lugging moving boxes around all day.

    Watch Out For Heat Exhaustion

    Remember, nothing is more important than your health. So, if you start to notice any of the signs or symptoms of heatstroke or dehydration in yourself or a loved one, stop work. Attend to the problem. Signs to keep an eye out for include dizziness, rapid heartbeat, lack of sweating and a high temperature.

    Enlist A Professional Removalist

    After all is said and done, if moving house during the height of an Australian summer sounds like torture, then it might be time to call in a professional local removals company. Professional removalists will have extensive experience in moving in all sorts of weather.
