Many of us never let go of our childhood passion of collecting things. For some, its model cars and others model trains, boats or planes, dolls, hats , you name it!

Storing these collections and moving them can be time consuming and hard. hard. Luckily there are carton products deigned to help. Crockery cartons with small compartments make an ideal choice for small places to store your valuable collection.

Always use bubble wrap clear side out and with small components, cotton wool wrapped around aerials and mirrors and small breakable parts does the trick.“Peanut” plastic storage can also fill the void between items.

Once you have packed the carton, clearly label the box ‘Fragile”. Stack the box in your Self Storage space, where it cannot fall if disturbed and try not to pack any other item on top of the box.

The contents are precious: It deserves it own space! But pack it inside a cupboard or wardrobe will provide protection.

Wrap glass display cases in bubble wrap, remove each shelf and wrap together as small panes of glass are stringer wrapped. Take these items to Storage Space yourself if you can to ensure safety of them. Also, don’t forget to insure your space.
