How to Pack Your gobox

gobox packing Tips
  1. Plan and pack your mobile storage space carefully. Leave air space around the perimeter to aid ventilation. Place protection on concrete floors for mattresses, soft furnishings and books. Do not lean items against walls. Use all storage space available especially height, and place frequently used goods near the door.
  2. As a general rule, place large heavy and valuable items that you can stack upon, at the rear of the unit. Then work forwards and upwards with lighter fragile items.
  3. gobox mobile storage units are kept spotlessly clean, but, it is still a good idea to position soft cloths or cardboard underneath mattresses, couches, boxes and beds to keep them protected.
  4. Any long items such as mattresses, beds and table tops should be placed on their edges along walls.
  5. If there's a chance you may require any item you are leaving in the unit, it is recommended to pack it into the gobox last so it is located near the doors for easy access, eg golf clubs.
  6. Store all important documents, passports, bills, invoices, guarantees and easy to lose items like glasses, keys and remote controls in one box. That way you will know exactly where you can find them. Leave the box near the door of your mobile storage unit.
  7. Always totally enclose mattresses and soft furnishings with our specially designed Mattress and Lounge Covers.
  8. Where possible, store couches (with the exception of sofa beds) on their ends to maximise space.
  9. Wrap mirrors and pictures with bubble wrap or use mirror boxes. Never store these items flat. Place mirrors in an upright position and protect them by securing them between softer items such as mattresses or bed-bases.
  10. Label all boxes on all sides for easy locating.
  11. Keep refrigerator and freezer doors slightly ajar and clean before storing. Don't forget to use the space inside them for extra storage. Please make sure all water is drained out of washing machines. Ensure freezers and fridges have been completely defrosted.
  12. It is vital that you check that everything is stacked safely and securely and not too high. Falling items can injure you or be damaged.
  13. The space inside wardrobes, cupboards, desks, fridges etc. are great to utilise for extra space
  14. 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.
