storage packing tips

  • Marking your boxes will not only help you find your supplies but also help your movers know where things go.
  • Before you start assembling boxes, straighten the house for efficient packing.
  • Invest in rolls of bubble wrap so your antiques have extra support on the road to storage. Fill this box to the top with packing peanuts or blanket.
  • Once the fragile box is full put a layer of newsprint on top so there is no chance the pieces can shift.
  • Take apart bookshelves and tables if applicable. Either tape the hardware to the pieces or put them in a box you will remember.
  • Supplies like boxes, tape, and locks are good to have on hand. If you need to replenish your stock our office offers many options.
  • Some extra tools to add would be dust covers, heavy plastic tarps for the floor, and rope for a safe drive to the facility.
  • Imagine picking up a huge box full of books, it may be more of pain then a space saver. Use small containers for heavy goods.
  • If you have a few things that are far to heavy for you or your friends to lift, call on the professionals. They have the right equipment to help them.
