Packing Tips

What’s the best way to pack?
We’ve got you covered.

Helpful packing tips to get you started in your move!

  • Plan your storage space. Place those items that you may need to access often in the front. Make sure to leave space for walkways.
  • Place your storage items on 2×4 boards or on pallets to guard against dampness. Any concrete floor may become cold and damp.
  • Use uniform size boxes for easy stacking and label the boxes (it’s also helpful to inventory individual boxes).
  • Stack lighter boxes on top of heavier boxes.
  • The heaviest items should be loaded in the back of the attic and balanced on each side.
  • Dishes and glasses should be wrapped in paper and packed in sturdy boxes. Stack them on top.
  • Be sure to tie down all of your belongings one section at a time.
  • Pictures and mirrors should be wrapped in cardboard and marked “FRAGILE” and stacked on end.
  • Furniture with drawers can be utilized for extra storage spaces.
  • Large appliances make excellent “packaging cases” for blankets, towels, tablecloths and clothes.
  • Tables having removable legs should be broken down to save space.
  • Sofas and love seats can be stored on end to save floor space. Always place a protective cover under the item on the concrete.
  • If you stand mattresses on their side, prop them up so they stand straight.
  • They may tend to bend out of shape and become lumpy.
  • Rent the smallest amount of space you need and pack the space full.
  • Prepare your space by placing a protective cover on the floor under your goods.
  • Do not place heavy or sharp objects on top of upholstered furniture.
  • Use a good quality lock on your door.
  • To prevent bug infestation and rodents, no food or food items should be stored.
  • Put TV’s and other electronics in the rear of your unit.
  • Keep an inventory of your items.
  • Do not store anything combustible (i.e., Paint thinner, gasoline, solvents, paint, etc)
