Grey Nomads are taking to the highways in their thousands, spending their retirement taking in the best our country has to offer. With statistics showing the average adventure lasting between 2 to 3 months, knowing what to pack and what to store can get tricky. What you take with you depends on where you’re going, how long you’re going for and what you plan on doing along the way. With your comfort and safety being our number one priority, we’ve got a few handy tips to help you get packed and ready.

What to pack

The general rule of thumb is, pack light. Travelling light makes moving to your next destination quicker and easier and if you’re driving, you’ll also use less petrol. What you pack depends on your personal tastes, where you’re going and what your hobbies are. You can always adhere to the old adage ‘if in doubt, leave it out’. Our Grace storage bags are an excellent and economical way to carry miscellaneous items and the best part is, they fold completely flat when you’re not using them.

Top Tip: Don’t forget to pack for wet weather; an emergency poncho goes a long way on a rainy day.

What to store

With the average trip lasting 3 months, it’s a long time to leave your much loved items unattended at home. Feeling concerned about the safety of your valuables while you’re on the road isn’t fun, that’s why Grace mobile self storage offers a sure safe short term solution. Delivered to your door, our Load4U team will help you put together a storage plan, pack your valuables into specialised Grace boxes, load the mobile storage container and store it in our secure facility till you’re ready. Temporary self storage is a cost effective way to protect your valuables and give you peace of mind as you travel from coast to coast.

Top Tip: Don’t forget about the outside. People often forget to store their outdoor furniture when they’re away.
