Storage Tips

  • Determine the type of storage you really need – climate-controlled or regular – and the size of the storage unit you need.
  • Gather your packing supplies. You’ll need sturdy boxes, marking pens, tape, packing paper, bubble wrap, and labels. You can find what you need at our store.
  • Storing small fragile items. If you’re storing items with drawers such as dressers, nightstands, etc., the drawer space can provide you with a good place to store more fragile items. Use packing paper or towels placed around them to protect them.
  • Always label your boxes. Nothing is more annoying than to have to move around and unpack boxes because you didn’t take the time to label them.
  • Put like items together. Along with labeling your boxes, it should go without saying that you should also pack bedroom items together, kitchen items together, etc. You’d be surprised how many people get in a hurry and abandon this approach. Stick with some organization. You’ll be glad later that you did!
