Helpful Self-Storage Packing and Moving Tips

 

When you choose to store your stuff at a Bluebird facility, our team will do everything we can to help your moving and storage experience go smoothly. However, when it comes to packing your belongings, there are a few things to keep in mind before you seal your boxes. If this is your first time storing your stuff in a unit, review the following tips to ensure an easy, enjoyable moving experience.

  • Use high-quality moving boxes or containers that can be secured tightly – older boxes are less secure and likely have been worn or damaged.

     

  • Tape the bottom and sides of your moving boxes to prevent the contents from spilling out.

     

  • When packing a moving box, it should be filled to capacity to avoid collapse and tipping when stacking. You can always fill the tops with towels, blankets, or other soft items that can easily fill holes in your boxes.

     

  • Use smaller boxes for heavier items like books or china so that they are easier to lift.

     

  • Place a fabric softener sheet in boxes with bedding and towels, so they stay fresh in your storage unit.

     

  • Use bubble wrap to protect your delicate items – it’s more durable than traditional packing paper!

     

  • Secure any moving parts and remove all detachable cables and wires from your T.V., stereo, VCR, DVD, and computer. Color code or label wiring for easier reinstallation. Tape off tie cables and wires for easy packing and less risk of tangles

     

  • Bubblewrap your electrical items for additional security and mark the box as fragile.

     

  • If you plan on storing a dining table, remove the legs before storing. Tape bubble wrap or packing paper to the legs of your table and chairs to protect them from damage.

     

  • Cover items such as mattresses, sofas, and chairs with dust-proof covers, so they stay clean throughout their stay.

     

  • Wrap pictures and mirrors individually in bubble wrap or picture boxes and mark them as fragile. Stack on end.

     

  • Pack lamps and lampshades in individual boxes so they can be transported with care. Use clean paper, bubble wrap, or towels for padding.

  • Pack books flat to protect their spines and help with weight distribution.

     

  • Each time you pack a box, use your marker to label contents and where they are to be unloaded.
