If your thinking about carrying out your move yourself think about: –
Work out how many of the various boxes you will need?
Book Boxes (Heavy)
Crystal & Glass Boxes (Medium Weight)
Linen or Toy Boxes (Light)
How long will it take to pack the boxes?
Book Boxes allow approx 15 minutes per box
Crystal & Glass Boxes allow approx 30 minutes per box
Linen or Toy Boxes allow approx 15 minutes per box
Len’s tip: start packing at lest a couple of weeks before your move.
How long will my move take?
You need to at least set aside a day to carry out your move.
Our main tip here is treat your move day like any other working day and get cracking as soon as you can.
Len’s tip: If you have a fairly big move why not ask Len’s Self Storage to give you a FREE estimate for both removal & storage?
How many helpers will you need?
We always recommend a minimum of three people for a move. However if you live on the 2nd, 3rd or 4th floor remember it can be pretty tough climbing up and down the stairs.
Lens tip: Ideally Len recommends 2 people per floor.
Do you need to suspend or get permission for parking your vehicle on the day of your move?
Len’s Tip: If in any doubt call: –
Parking Suspension (pay & display or permit parking) call 0131 554 1751 or 0141 287 4040
Dispensation on single yellow lines & loading bays call 0131 557 6941 or 0141 287 4040
