NO double handling.
Using containers and modular storage reduces the handling of your goods by HALF!
We use forklift-able storage containers, so if you don’t need regular access to your goods, then moving and storing your goods in containers makes real sense.
…particularly if you need to store your goods in between moving from one residence to another.

Storage and Packing Tips
Time and Money Savers
- Use standard removal cartons for your kitchenware and linen and book cartons for books, CDs or DVDs, wine and heavy items.
- Pack one carton labelled No. 1 with all the things you will need first in your new home such as bed legs, wardrobe keys, tea, coffee, kettle, TV remote controls and screwdrivers or other tools needed to assemble furniture.
- Pack fragile items with plenty of scrunch paper, ensuring the carton is full to the top. Mark the carton fragile for top loading.
- Use packing paper and not newspaper to avoid having to wash each item when unpacking.
- Include mothballs or naphthalene when packing linen and clothing for storage as this will deter silver fish and cockroaches. The use of portable wardrobes will reduce ironing when you unpack.
- Vacuum food crumbs from lounges and furniture, paying special attention to under lounge seat cushions as crumbs will attract vermin.
- Place your mattresses and (non-leather) lounges in heavy duty plastic covers to keep them clean and fresh. Treat leather lounges and cover with cotton covers.
- Prepare your equipment by removing all cords and cables and mark the cable and socket for easy reconnection. Pack all components in dust proof bags and stack into cartons surrounded by scrunch paper.
- TV’s and computer monitors are heavier on the screen side. If placing them in a carton mark the glass side very clearly to assist with handling.
- Plasma TV’s must not have any pressure on the screen, so if you don’t have the original carton and packing, speak to us about a custom built crate.
- Thoroughly clean and dry fridges and freezers including drip trays. Place a Zorb moisture absorber inside the appliance to maintain freshness and store with the door open.
- Do not store anything in your whitegoods as it may mark the shelves and linings.
- Empty water out of washing machine hoses, disconnect and place in machine for safe keeping.
- Remove your microwave plate and pack it on its edge in a fragile carton.
Lawn Mowers, Machinery and Tools
- Drain fuel and oil from all machinery, clean any leakages and empty the catcher.
- Dispose of all flammable and hazardous goods including paint, chlorine, fuels and gas bottles. Clean the BBQ drip tray.
Office files or Business Records
- If you are storing office files or business records, Noosa Storage Centre can custom make shelving to suit your needs.
