Packing Items for Storage - Packing Items for Storage

There are times when you may need to engage a moving and storage company to hold your belongings until you are ready to move into your new home. This happens quite often with military moves. Outside of the military, some people hire a moving and storage company when they are faced with having to make an interim move. This can occur when you close on your existing home before you close on your new home. It can also happen when you are in the process of building a new home that is not move-in ready and you have to either stay with a friend or family member or rent a place on a month-to-month basis.

If you are faced with having to hire a moving and storage company to temporarily store your belongings, there are some steps you should take to ensure they are properly prepared and packed for storage. We will explore this in our next series of articles. Let’s get started:

Don’t Store Items You May Need to Access

If you have specific items that you may need to access before you make your final move, it is recommended that you do not place them in storage. This can include anything from important paperwork and kids’ toys to tools and electronics.  Bottom line, if you think you will need it, do not place it in storage.

Use Quality Packing Supplies

Quality packing supplies make all the difference, especially if you plan to place items in storage. Follow the example of our movers and packers who use dependable supplies such as durable boxes, heavy duty tape, bubble wrap, popcorn, and anything else that may be needed to protect the integrity of the contents being packed.
