Storage Tips & Tools

Here are some great moving tips to help ensure your belongings will remain in good shape while in storage: 

  1. Plan: Make packing for storage easier on yourself by planning ahead. Start by listing all the items you're going to store and their approximate sizes.

  2. Supplies: Gather up plenty of sturdy, corrugated cartons, packing paper, bubble wrap, sealing tape and marker pens, along with any furniture covers or shelving you intend to use in your storage unit.

  3. Filler: Pack as much as you can in the same size boxes. Fill boxes tightly, but take care to neither overpack nor under pack; bulging cartons tip when stacked, while half full boxes tend to collapse. Use wadded up newsprint, bubble wrap, rags, towels, or blankets to fill in empty spaces.

  4. Seal: For maximum protection, seal cartons with tape.
