Packing Tips

How to Pack Items for Moving or Storage

  • Use high-quality packing boxes designed especially for the job. Packing boxes and supplies can be purchased at all of our locations.
  • Always fill boxes to capacity; partially full boxes may tip or collapse. We recommend packing paper or peanuts for this purpose.
  • Pack heavy items in smaller boxes for easier lifting.
  • Use same-size boxes for easy stacking.
  • Seal boxes completely with packing tape to keep boxes sturdy.
  • Label boxes on the top and on multiple sides for easy identification.
  • Unplug, clean, and defrost refrigerators completely before the move.
  • Put everything you possibly can in a box. We have boxes for every item such as pictures, lampshades, clothes, and electronics.
  • Boxes make items easier to move and help keep items clean.
  • Dishes and glasses should be wrapped in packing paper, bubble wrap, or a Pro Pack system.

Packing a Storage Space

  • You may occasionally need to enter your storage space and find a particular item. Make sure all your boxes are labeled on their sides and can be seen from the storage door.
  • By using plastic storage containers, you can stack your items easily and safely.
  • Store all couches (except sofa beds) on end to maximize storage space.
  • Protect mattresses and furniture with pads and covers, and store them on-end.
  • Use shelving to maximize the height inside your storage space.
  • Store frequently used items near the front of your space.
  • Leave a center aisle for easier access to all stored items.
  • Use same-size boxes for easy stacking and to maximize space.
  • Disassemble tables and shelves and store them on their sides. Wrap and mark all pieces for easier reassembly.
  • Stack chairs seat-to-seat with cloth or paper to separate them.
  • Never store mirrors or pictures flat. Always wrap these items with paper pads or use mirror boxes.
  • Clean refrigerators and freezers and leave doors slightly ajar. Use the space inside for more storage.
  • Use all empty spaces inside furniture items for additional storage. This will help the furniture become more stable.
