Protect fragile items by wrapping individually in butcher’s paper or bubble wrap, and labelling cartons Fragile.
Protect your clothes by ensuring they are packed clean and with cedar blocks, or similar products, in our gobox mobile storage clothing and linen bags, port-a-robes or tea chests.
Books should be packed flat so that the spines won’t break in smaller boxes. Never pack fragile items with books.
Separate your goods with felt blankets, cushions, cardboard or bubble wrap both while moving and in storage.
gobox mobile storage units are kept spotlessly clean, however, it is a good idea to give your mattresses, couches, boxes and beds extra protection by positioning soft cloths or cardboard underneath them.
Always enclose soft furnishings, especially couches and mattresses, in our special covers before moving. It could be raining on moving day, so these items are protected during transport and in storage.
Cleanliness is critical at gobox mobile storage and we work very hard to create a clean environment. For your protection, we recommend food crumbs and stains be removed from clothing and soft furnishings before storage.
Great care should be taken to avoid storing anything that could attract vermin. Food of any description must not be stored – this includes wheat bags, dried flowers, etc. Don’t risk attracting vermin to your mobile storage unit and compromising the whole facility.
Fridges, freezers and other white goods should be thoroughly defrosted, dry and clean before storing. Always move and store your Fridge in the upright position. Laying a fridge on its side could damage it. Keep fridge doors slightly ajar during mobile storage, and leave a deodoriser – such as a box of baking soda – inside to maintain freshness.
Protect your washing machine while in transit. Disconnect and thoroughly drain the hoses. Put each hose-end in a plastic sandwich bag, then seal the bag tightly with tape or a rubber band, so no leftover water leaks out and damages your goods.
Protect the shelves and structure of your furniture by emptying wardrobes, cupboards and drawers while moving. Refill when in storage.
Drain garden hoses, then coil with the ends connected and tie them up. Store hoses in clean bins.
Store mowers with a half full tank, and place on a board or plastic sheet in case of leakage.
We recommend that you periodically visit your mobile storage unit to check on your goods. gobox mobile storage does not have access to customers’ mobile storage units, so checking the condition of your goods is up to you.
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.
