How to Pack
Your Belongings for Storage
While having a safe and secure location to store your belongings is key, knowing how to pack and protect those items is absolutely necessary for preventing damage. Packing for storage uses similar strategies than that of a relocation, with the main difference being preventative measures against water, mold, heat, or stress.
When packing for storage, think about the materials. Aim for boxes, rather than bags, since you can stack boxes and maintain the integrity of the items inside. Plastic bins are even better than cardboard, because they keep things dry. Base your box type on the materials going inside.
Furniture is a common item in storage and will last longest when disassembled and wrapped individually. A little extra effort in packing can really protect the investment you’ve made in your possessions.
To Use a Storage Facility
Most of the time, storage is a means to an end. You’re moving somewhere, going someplace, or generally can’t take all of your things. Sometimes it may be for a few days, other times, many years. Here are the top reasons you may consider storing your belongings.
