Packing Tips for a Safe and Organized Move

  1. Use sturdy boxes and packing materials to protect your belongings. Avoid using damaged or weak boxes.

  3. Use bubble wrap or packing paper to wrap fragile items such as dishes, glasses, and electronics.

  4. Pack heavy items in smaller boxes and lighter items in larger boxes.

  5. Fill empty spaces in boxes with packing materials to prevent items from shifting during transit.

  6. Disassemble furniture if possible to save space and protect delicate parts.

  7. Pack books flat to avoid damaging the spines.

Tips to Keep Your Belongings Safe and Secure

  1. Make an inventory of everything you store, so you know what you have in storage and where it is located.

  2. Use pallets or shelving to keep your items off the floor and protect them from moisture.

  3. Leave a small space between your items and the walls of the storage unit for ventilation.

  4. Use climate-controlled storage units for items that are sensitive to temperature and humidity changes.

  5. Avoid stacking boxes too high, as this can create an unstable tower that could fall and cause damage.

  6. Place frequently accessed items near the front of the unit to make them easier to reach.

  7. Use a secure padlock to keep your unit safe from theft.

  8. Visit your storage unit periodically to check on your items and ensure they are in good condition.
