When it comes to packing up your belongings, it helps to have some basic packing skills as it’s not as simple as shoving everything in some boxes willy-nilly. You need to be especially careful when packing glassware, china, pictures and ornaments as you don’t want them to become damaged in transport. Packing books, DVD’s and clothing is much simpler but you’ll still need to know which packing materials to choose.
Local but mighty – Alexander-Hough Self Storage offers you more
If you visit our self storage site at Brooklands Mill, Leigh, during office hours (9am – 6pm) we’d be happy to show you around our packing facility. We can teach you how to choose and use materials so you don’t use more boxes than you need to, safeguard against breakages, how to correctly label your boxes, how to move furniture safely and lots of other essential skills. It has demo boxes in as well as demo lockers and furniture for lifting and moving practice.
This facility was initial designed to train our removals and storage employees on how to lift, carry, disassemble, assemble and pack properly but we soon realised that it could benefit our customers too.
