How it works

It’s so easy to store with Caboodle. Simply choose how many boxes and bags you need. Photo-catalogue and pack them, then book a collection date and we’ll take your belongings to our storage centres. When you want something returned, we’ll bring it straight to your door on a date to suit you.

Caboodle storage options
Caboodle boxes are the the largest available

We provide free, water-resistant packaging as standard to protect your belongings. Our crate style box is one of the largest and strongest available with a capacity of 80 litres. They’re like a big holiday suitcase, which means you could fit 10 footballs in there. That’s, er, if you want to. There’s even a water-resistant inner liner which you seal shut for maximum protection.

They’re made from strong, recycled plastic and live a very long life so if you need to borrow some you can. These are provided free, subject to availability.

Caboodle sturdy cardboard box

Our double-strength cardboard boxes are strong and come with a bag to slip over each box giving each one extra water-resistant protection. They are large measuring 45.7 x 45.7 x 45.7cm with a capacity of over 90 litres.

For suitcases and other oversized items we send you our bags to slip over them too.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to supply restrictions in the current circumstances, we may provide large cardboard boxes instead of the crate-style ones. However we aim to always give extra, waterproof protection by providing a large outer bag that can cover these cardboard boxes and be sealed shut.

What to do when your cardboard boxes and bags arrive

  • Activate your packaging

    The quickest way is to use the QR code (the little square barcode) that you'll find on the outside of the large Caboodle bag that comes with each cardboard box. if you’re storing oversized items like suitcases then we’ll send you one bag for each item too.

    If you have an iPhone, click on your camera icon and make sure the camera is set to “Photo” and not “Video”. Now hover the camera over the QR code. Please note: you don’t need to take a photo to activate it, just point the camera at it and hold still. It will take you to the website. Magic!

    Can’t do that? No problem. You can activate your box/bag manually:

    Log into your account page at, click ‘Activate belongings’ and type in the digits of your user ID code on the carrier’s sticker.

  • Pack your boxes and bags

    Pack cardboard boxes normally (max 25kg) and seal well. Slip cardboard boxes (and oversized items) inside our large bags for protection.

  • Track what's inside while packing

    With the QR code you can easily photo-catalogue your belongings. As the camera is open at this point, snap a pic of each item as you pack, or take a group photo! This will automatically save and associate the photos with that box and build your catalogue. Repeat the process for each box or bag as they have their own unique QR codes.

  • Secure your protective bag

    Pop your sealed cardboard box or oversized item inside our bags to protect them. Remember to seal each bag shut as well!

  • Find the return labels in your welcome pack and stick them on the front of each bag, ready for collection


  • Book collection
