Handy storage and moving tips

Storage tips

  • Leave a walkway to the rear of the unit
  • Disassemble bed frames to save space
  • Place frequently used items close to the door
  • Fill your boxes, but don’t over fill —partially full or bulging boxes may tip or collapse
  • Store couches (except sofa beds) on end to save space
  • Place fragile items near the top of the unit to prevent breakage
  • Label your cartons and keep a list of the labeled cartons (Get labels in our office)
  • Consider shelving to make maximum use of your space
  • Adding bay leaves to boxes will discourage many pests and pets
  • Clean refrigerators and freezers before storing
  • Leave refrigerator and freezer doors slightly ajar
  • Use refrigerator and freezer space for storage
  • Wrap mirrors and pictures with paper pads or use mirror boxes, never store them flat

Packing Tips

  • Use high quality moving and storage boxes
  • For easier lifting, pack books and heavy objects in smaller boxes
  • Hanging your clothes in wardrobe boxes will keep them in good condition
  • Use the same size boxes for easy stacking
  • Fill boxes completely to prevent collapsing when stacked
  • Stuff open spaces with newsprint
  • Seal boxes completely with packing tape to keep out dust
  • Label all boxes and wardrobes and make a list
