At LoknStore, we believe that a stress-free move begins with using the proper supplies to protect your valuables. Our certified storage consultants can help you make the right choices when it comes to packaging and protecting your possessions.
LoknStore offers an assortment of moving supplies that you can enquire on their availability, such as:
Available in various sizes, including 2, 4, 5, and 6 cubes as well as wardrobe boxes.
- Small boxes
These can be used for packing, moving, and storing books, magazines, records, CD/DVDs, video game consoles, and household cleaning supplies.
- Medium boxes
These are best for storing larger items like photo albums, small appliances, kitchen utensils, and shoes.
- Large box
These are used for storing large but lightweight items, like beddings.
- Wardrobe box

We have a variety of moving and packing supplies, including:
- Sofa/chair covers

- Heavy-duty tape gun and tape rolls
Self-dispensing tape that is ideal for sealing boxes before moving them to storage
Other moving supplies that you might need include:

What about moving services?
You will find that most self-storage services are do-it-yourself as far as the physical labour of moving your belongings to the facilities goes. We suggest bringing a family member or friend along to share the grunt work, though you can also seek professional assistance by contracting a mover you trust. If you don’t know one, LokNStore can recommend a mover for you!
That said, we sell moving supplies and provide handcarts and dollies for free so you can easily move your items to the unit. Talk to our team today for more information!
