Storage packing tips for the perfect storing experience

Storage packing tips

  • Find the right packing supplies. Ask about our moving kits to make things simple.
  • Lifting a large box that is heavier then expected can hurt your movers and your box, so be aware how much each container can hold.
  • Wrap pictures to keep them prestine. Find bubble wrap the next time you stop by our office.
  • Store mattresses in mattress bags to avoid dust and dirt from settling in.
  • Keep your regularly used items off to the side, these boxes you want to pack last so you can access them at any time.
  • A protective cushion between each plate or bowl helps absorb the vibrations in transit to the new house.
  • Load boxes that go to the same room into the moving truck together, so everything comes out at the same time and does not end up in a different room.
  • If you are calling on friends and family to help you move, give them enough notice so they can clear their schedules or for you to find a replacement.
