Guide to Great Storage
No matter what you’re storing, these tips can make the process smoother and less complicated.
Need help with something specific? Our friendly staff at any of our facilities will be happy to assist.
Boxes & Bins
Make sure most of your moving boxes or storage bins are the same size. This saves space and makes stacking easier.
Fill boxes completely. No one wants storage containers to start crumpling! Label all of your moving boxes, on all sides. You’ll thank yourself later.
Use packing paper, old newspapers or bubble wrap to save breakable items from jostling. Don’t use plastic bags, especially for water sensitive items (these can gather moisture).
Balance the weight of your moving boxes with a mix of heavy and lighter items so that moving is easier. Cramming your storage unit full may be tempting, but make sure there’s space to walk!
Art & Mirrors
Create criss-crosses with masking tape over the front of glass-covered art and mirrors. Save space and guard against scratches by placing flat items upright.
No matter how long you plan to store, disassemble big furniture like tables and bed frames to reduce the space they take up.
Apply a protective treatment to materials like leather, metal and wood items to guard against wear during shipping and storage. And make sure to select a temperature controlled facility.
Our facilities are safe and secure. Only provide access to your unit to people you trust.
