Packing & Storage Tips

1. Smallest

Rent the smallest amount of space you will need and pack the unit full.

2. Gather Materials

Start by gathering as many boxes as you think you will need, plus tape, markers and packing material (e.g., foam shipping noodles, bubble wrap, packing paper or towels), which we also provide for sale at our office.

3. Uniform Sizes

If possible, try to use uniformly sized boxes for easy stacking.

4. Inventory

Make an inventory of your items and keep it in a safe place at home or in a safe deposit box away from the unit.

5. Keep Dry

Place your storage items on 2x4 boards or on pallets to guard against dampness. Any concrete floor may become cold and damp.

6. Plan Ahead

Plan your storage space. Place items that you may need to access often in the front.

7. CAUTION

Do not store anything COMBUSTIBLE (e.g., paint thinner, gasoline, solvents, paint).

8. Easier Access

Try to leave an aisle down the center of the storage unit for easier access. Leave a small space between the walls and boxes to allow for air circulation.

9. Stack It Up

Stack heavier boxes on the bottom and lighter boxes on top.

10. Strong Boxes

Be sure your boxes are strong enough to hold 25-30 pounds. It is best not to put too much in each box. Boxes are also avalaible for sale at our office.

11. Label Contents

List contents of boxes on all four sides; number the boxes and seal with tape. You can find boxes for sale at the office.

12. Wrap It Up

Dishes and glasses should be wrapped in paper and packed in sturdy boxes, which you can find avaialable at our facility for sale. Stack them on top.
