Annville PA storage packing tips

  • If a piece of furniture can become smaller, make that happen. Deconstruct bed frames and shelves for easier storing.
  • Add markers and fragile labels to your shopping list. These will come in handy when you are packing fine china.
  • Foam peanuts or bubble wrap are helpful if you have keepsakes that need protection.
  • Hanging clothes on a rack rather then folding them in a box will keep them in excellent condition and crease free.
  • Before you move your belongings into your unit, put pallets down or a thick plastic cover. This will keep moisture from spreading into the bottom of your boxes.
  • Make a plan for what goes in the unit first. Remember what goes in first may not be as readily available.
  • An isle is not a bad idea if you need to get to the supplies in the back row. Make sure all your labels are facing outward so you can search without any problems.
  • Make sure whoever is helping you move knows specific times and places to be well in advance of moving day.
  • Pay special attention to fabric, wood, and leather pieces of furniture. A protective coating keeps these pieces looking like the first day they went into storage.
