It’s a jungle out there…Keep your things safe with Thomas!

Things to consider prior packing

The most important thing to consider when packing is to have your goods protected.

This means you have to use proper packaging supplies and packing techniques.

If you are not using professional packers from a removalist company, Thomas Storage is able to provide you with a range of packing supplies as well as good tips on how to pack your goods. In other words, we are able to provide you with everything you need to do a professional packing job yourself.

Are you looking for boxes, tape, protective covers for beds / sofas / mattresses? Look no further! We have set up an Online Shop for a variety of items and you are always welcome to speak to our friendly managers (Ingrid or Maria) for further information.

Things to consider while packing

As a general rule, your goods should be placed into boxes. Items that do not fit into boxes should be covered.

Boxes should be filled to capacity but never overfilled as partially full or bulging boxes may tip or collapse.

Heavy items, like books and tools, should be packed in smaller boxes so that they are easy to handle.

Packing and labelling boxes room by room makes unpacking much easier. Also, properly labelled boxes will ensure you save time and effort when searching for a specific item in storage.

Whilst Thomas Storage offers safe and secure storage for your goods, we recommend insurance for added peace of mind.

Don’t assume that your homeowners or renters insurance will cover your belongings while in storage. Do your research first and purchase the necessary insurance. If you are unsure or you know that your current policy does not provide adequate protection, please see our recommendations under Other Services or contact us on 03 9464 1111
