CHECK OUT OUR HANDY PACKING TIPS BEFORE VISITING OUR STORAGE UNITS
When moving large belongings, there are many important tips to keep in mind to keep them undamaged during transport and drop off. The first step is to choose the right storage boxes. Packing your things in the correctly sized box will protect them from damage and from the weather. If you are storing irregularly shaped objects, they should be adequately cushioned. These objects can easily punch a hole in a box, damaging it to the point of collapse, or exposing part of your item to other damage.
When storing large pieces of furniture, disassembly is ideal for conserving space. It also makes the furniture easier to protect with covers like blankets, towels, or plastic sheets. Mattresses also need to be wrapped in paper or cloth to prevent moisture from accumulating.
Foam or bubble wrap can be used to protect smaller items like pictures, mirrors, old CDs and albums, crystal and china, and glassware. Wardrobe boxes can be used to store clothing, curtains, and drapes.
