gobox Packing Tips

moving house storage
  1. Buy plenty of moving boxes early and start packing them as soon as you can. So when moving day comes you'll be fully prepared, as delays on moving day can be costly and very stressful.
  2. Use the same sized moving boxes for easy stacking. gobox mobile storage packing boxes are specifically sized to make stacking and tiering easier. Don't fall into the trap of thinking you can make do with cardboard boxes picked up at your local supermarket. They aren't strong enough and you risk damaging you goods. gobox mobile storage boxes are also fresh and new, unlike used boxes that could be soiled or might be carrying unwanted pests.
  3. List all the items that go into each box in a duplicate invoice book, and then number each box with their invoice number on all sides. Packing and labelling cartons room by room makes the unpacking much easier. The full list of contents is conveniently indexed in the book, which should be stored by the unit door for easy reference. No matter how each box is stored, you will know its contents by sighting its number. A set of duplicate copies should be placed in your storage folder at home.
  4. Fill cartons to capacity; partially full or bulging cartons may tip or collapse. Pack empty space with Butcher's Paper or extra linen to prevent collapsing when stacked.
  5. Seal boxes completely with packing tape to keep out dust and to strengthen.
  6. Pack books and other heavy objects in the smaller boxes for easy lifting. Our Book and Wine Cartons are perfect. Keep under 16kg and stack the heaviest boxes at the bottom.
  7. If you need to store clothes, gobox Port-a-Robes (temporary closets) are perfect to take your clothes on hangers from wardrobe to box. Their depth allows you to store clothes on hangers, with the unused space at the bottom being very useful for storing shoes and other related items. Clothing and Linen Bags or Tea Chests Cartons are also ideal for clothes and linen.
  8. Please note that 3000kg is the maximum weight that can be loaded into a gobox unit. If the weight maximum is exceeded, gobox cannot transport or relocate the gobox unit until the contents weight is less than 3000kg.
