Packing Supplies To Get When Packing Things For Storage


If you are going to be putting your belongings into a storage unit, you'll want to be sure to pack and store those items correctly. This way, you will be able to find what you are looking for easily in the future. Also, your things will be safer, cleaner and in better condition. While climate-controlled storage units already do a fantastic job of protecting what's being stored in them, packaging them correctly will further increase their protection. You can learn more about some different packing supplies you should get when you are packing up your things to put them in storage here.

Purchase Packing Boxes of the Same Size

You may want to choose two or three different sizes of boxes to accommodate your packing needs. However, you should be sure all of the boxes you get are the same kind. This way, all the boxes of the boxes of one size will stack nicely on top of each other. If you get mix-matched boxes, then boxes of roughly the same size will have slight differences that make the stack unstable. 

Purchase Clear Plastic Storage Bins for Some Items

You may want to opt for clear plastic storage bins for certain items. Fabrics will do best in the plastic bins. Also, the bins can be easily seen through, which makes them better for miscellaneous items that are hard to define on boxes. Make sure all the boxes you put in the storage unit are properly sealed and labeled. 

Purchase Packing Tape

When you are sealing the cardboard packing boxes, you want to be sure you are using packing tape. This tape will hold up well, but it will also be easy for you to remove to get inside the boxes. It won't cause a lot of damage to the boxes when you remove it in order to get inside the boxes at a later date. 

Purchase Packing Material

There are many types of packing material, so you can use what's going to help protect your belongings the most. A common material when packing things to put them in storage is bubble wrap. It offers you some flexibility with regard to how it is used. You can use bubble wrap to completely wrap things like vases and lamps. However, you can also use it between items like plates and bowls that need to be protected when you put them in boxes.

Keeping Your Storage Unit Clean

After we moved into a smaller home, we realized that a lot of our stuff would need to be moved into a storage unit. Unfortunately, after we moved things into our storage space, we realized that it was going to be pretty tough to keep clean. To keep our stuff from getting damaged, we decided to go through our unit, organize our things into boxes, and try hard to keep it organized. However, after a series of trials and errors, we were able to figure out a system that worked for us, and our unit is still clean. Check out this blog to learn more about tidying up your storage unit.
