Properly Preparing and Packing Your Belongings for Storage - Properly Preparing and Packing Your Belongings for Storage

If you plan to utilize temporary storage during your next move, listen up. Our full service movers and packers have some important tips to share. Our previous articles covered how you should not put items you may need to quickly access into storage, the importance of using quality packing supplies, making sure you wash all linens and clothing you plan to store, and how you should not place perishables in storage. Here are two more tips to help you properly prepare and pack your belongings for storage.

Make Sure Items Are Dry

Our full service movers and packers will tell you to make sure you do not pack any items that are damp or wet. This is especially true if they are going to be placed in storage. Dampness promotes moisture buildup which can cause mold, mildew, and foul odors.

Protect Fragile Items

Fragile items should be protected whether you are making a door-to-door move or placing the items in storage. Our full service movers and packers suggest using plenty of peanuts, bubble wrap, and acid-free paper when packing items that are fragile. You can also use linens to pad your moving boxes. Make sure the boxes are packed tightly to discourage the contents from rubbing up against one another and/or shifting in transit.
