How to Prepare Your Items for Storage
When preparing your items to be placed in commercial or residential storage, follow these simple steps to ensure everything stays safe and secure throughout the process. Be sure to use our moving check list as you go so that nothing gets lost in the shuffle.
Label All Your Boxes
Organization is key to a stress-free move! Using a consistent, logical labeling system will improve the unpacking process and make it easy to find what you need, whenever you need it.
During the packing process, consider packing similar items together. A simple way to start is batching your items by room—for example, closets, bedrooms or kitchen. Keeping like items together goes a long way toward ensuring a seamless moving and storage process.
The last thing you want is for your moving boxes to overflow. This could lead to damaged goods or cause your personal items to fall out of the boxes while in the storage facility. Review our packing tips to learn more about optimal packing processes!
Start with Heavy Items
Always put the heaviest items in the box first to avoid breakage and ensure easy access to smaller items.
Use Boxes That Fit Properly
Always use strong cardboard boxes that are well-sized for the items you’re packing. A flimsy box can easily break during the moving and storage process.
Use Larger Storage Containers for Smaller Items
When packing your smaller items, consider placing them in larger plastic containers or boxes you already have around the house. This will help minimize the number of new boxes you need.
