Come by our office and we will help you make your move as painless as possible by providing you with a "one-stop" moving and storage solution tailored to your needs. Here are some general tips:
Tips For Loading Your Space
- Rent the smallest amount of
space you need and pack the space until full. But, it is always a good idea to leave a
little walking space inside the unit in the event you need to retrieve
something. There are few things as
irritating as having to pull a lot
of things out into the hallway to get to that one piece of paper that you
- A box for everything and
everything in a box, is the best protection of your goods. Use uniform
sizes of boxes and stack them shoulder high to maximize your total storage
space. Start with the heaviest boxes on the bottom of each stack.
- Leave a small air space
between the goods stored and the storage unit walls.
- Do not place heavy or sharp
objects on top of upholstered furniture. But do make use of tables,
chests, dressers, entertainment centers for stacking boxes.
- Protect your mattresses,
sofas, and chairs with plastic covers.
- Cover the entire load with a
light plastic cover.
Space Saving Packing Tips
- Beds: Lash
bed rails together with rope or plastic tape. As you take beds apart, mark
all pieces so you know which goes with which headboard, etc. Place covers
on mattresses to keep them clean during moving and storage.
- Books: Books
get heavy in bunches. Pack them in small cartons, holding weight to under
30 pounds for easy lifting. Line all book cartons with plastic and fill
empty spaces with packing paper. (Garbage bags work well as a liner).
Make your bureau drawers earn their passage as extra packing boxes. Fill
them with a few small and fragile items. Sweaters, blankets and towels
make excellent padding.
- Cartons: Go
easy on your back. Hold weight of all packing cartons under 30 pounds.
With a marking pen, list contents of each carton on the side.
Protect all chair legs by wrapping them in packing paper. Leave slipcovers
on upholstered chairs and cover them with plastic chair covers.
- Dishes: Take
your time when packing dishes. Wrap each one with packing tissue and
cushion them in the carton with crumpled packing paper. Keep dish pack
cartons under 30 pounds for easy handling and safe riding. Be sure to mark
your dishes boxes as “FRAGILE”
Pack glasses carefully. Wrap with tissue and pad with crumpled packing
paper just like dishes. And, just as with dishes, be sure to mark the
boxes as “FRAGILE”.
- Lamps: Pack
lamp shades in individual boxes with plenty of paper for padding. Lamp
bases ride securely in bureau drawers, freezers and washing machines. For
safety, pad them well with towels and blankets.
- Appliances –
A refrigerator should be completely dry and stored with door slightly
ajar. Don’t forget that you can
save floor space by storing items on top of stoves, dishwashers, freezers.
WARNING: Do Not Store Combustibles such as old paint,
cleaning fluids, oil, gasoline, etc. Make certain all fuel and oil is drained
or burned out of gasoline/diesel powered equipment. Throw away anything that
could possibly cause fire. Flammable and combustible materials are strictly
prohibited and customers are responsible for clean up of any improperly or
prohibited stored materials. Do not
store food or any item which could attract rodents or pests.
