Packing Supplies

Packing Supplies Checklist:

  • So you don’t have to go buy a whole new dinnerware set, wrap your plates, bowls, cups, etc. in bubble wrap, kraft paper, or newsprint.
  • It’s always better to buy in bulk! For the bigger jobs go for the value pack of tape. The 3 rolls will keep you moving for 30 boxes.
  • Our covers have micro-pores that allow your mattress and large furniture to breathe.
  • Since the large boxes shouldn’t have your heaviest items, stack the smaller/medium boxes on the bottom. The smaller boxes are better suited for heavy objects.
  • The cardboard insert in the glass partition kit is useful for kitchen items. For added protection use bubble pouches to cushion any movement.
  • Disk Locks are the most common lock in self storage because of the stainless-steel exterior and weather resistant features.
  • Moisture is everywhere, even in dry climates, to prevent having to buy a whole new set of furniture use Damp-Rid moisture control.
  • Whether you transport your belongings to a house or storage unit, secure them for the ride. Tie everything down with nylon rope or shrink wrap.
  • It is smart to have “fragile” labels on hand while packing. If friends and family are helping, the sticker will let them know which boxes need extra care.
  • Most moving kits consist of 5 small boxes, 4 medium boxes, 2 large, 1 tall box, 2 rolls of clear tape, 2 rolls of bubble pack and one marker.
