For maximum efficiency, it’s a good idea to use just one or two sizes of boxes. Plan to fill them completely so they won’t crush when stacked. Also, be careful using old boxes or grocery store cast-offs. They may not provide the sturdiness you need to properly protect your belongings.
While packing may not be everyone’s idea of fun, a good plan and the right tools can make it a downright pleasant experience. The following tips from Clock Tower Self Storage – Lake Stevens will help you make light work of move in day.
Pop in a Pallet or Two – Stacking boxes atop wooden pallets creates a way for air to circulate, and helps protect the bottom boxes from debris or spillage.
Label, Label, Label – Use a marker, or actual labels, to designate the contents of each box, then number them. Keep a corresponding list on your computer or in a book, and you’ll be able to find whatever you need in no time.
Clean In, Clean Out – Dust and degrease appliances and tools before you store them. Blue painters tape is excellent for sealing doors, and easy to remove later. For safety, remember to empty the gas tank on the mower.
Protect Furniture – Remove table legs and layer on the wrapping around corners and glass.
A little effort goes a long way. Once you’re packed up nice and neat, our heated units will protect and preserve your things. Visit Clock Tower Self Storage – Lake Stevens to check out our full inventory of packing supplies.
