Packing Tips

-Leave the heavy objects towards the bottom.
-Label boxes on both the top and sides. 
 -Wrap items separately prior to storing in boxes. Bubble wrap, linens or paper are recommended.
- Never store live animals, combustibles, (paint, chemicals, toxic materials) or perishable items (such as food). 
-Drain fuel from engines before storing. 
 -Leave appliance and equipment doors slightly ajar. -Drain your washing machine and defrost your fridge/freezer. 
 -For clothing, use wardrobe boxes that allow you to hang them and save the shape of garments. Leave smaller garments in drawers. 
 -If possible, put smaller appliances in their original boxes. 
 -Fill empty spaces with paper to prevent boxes from folding.

Storage Tips

-Don’t lean stored property against the walls of your unit. Whenever possible, store all boxes on wooden pallets or boards. 
-Don’t stack boxes so high that getting to them becomes dangerous or overly time consuming.
-Leave an aisle down the middle of your unit so that boxes and other items can be easily seen and identified. 
-Make a complete list of all goods stored. Keep sales receipts, proofs of purchase and warranties to prove ownership.
-Take furniture apart to optimize space. Any bolts, screws or parts should be put in a plastic bag and taped to the underside of table tops. 
-Chairs should be stacked seat to seat with paper or cloth between them.
-For heirlooms, use specially constructed boxes
-Use protective covers. 
-Always use high quality locks on your unit.
