Consider how much space you really need. Self-storage facilities rent units in all different sizes. It’s best to option for a smaller storage unit and pack it to the ceiling rather than pay for space you’re not using. If even the smallest storage units are too much, look into mini-storage facilities: self-storage facilities that specialize in small loads.

Also ask about climate controlled units. If you’re storing anything valuable or delicate – like antique furniture or important documents – it could be warped by being stored in space that’s too hot, too cold or too humid. For an extra cost, most public storage facilities can set you up with a unit where temperature and humidity are restricted.

Help and Tips how to pack for Storage

Pictures and Mirrors
Wrap pictures with white paper or news prints. For larger ones, buy large picture boxes. Consider using bubble wrap.

Electronic Equipment
It is a good idea to use the original boxes. If you don't have them, pack items carefully and use cushion material. Bubble wrap, and even white paper or news paper will help. Pack items separately. Tie down tone arms for record players. Stack record albums on end to prevent warping and use small boxes to hold down the weight. Consider the temperature as heat can warp CD's and record albums.

Crystal, China, and Fine glassware
Consider buying boxes designed for this with dividers. Wrap each item with paper or foam. Label boxes with glass items and stack these on top. Add packing material to both the bottom and the top of the moving boxes.

  • If you’re storing a lot of packing boxes in your unit, try to fill them to the top, even if it’s just with padding and old, crumpled newspapers. Boxes that are only half-filled tend to collapse if anything’s placed on them.

  • If you’re putting any metal objects into storage – like lawnmowers or file cabinets – it’s best to treat them with rust protector first, or at least wipe them down with an oily rag.

  • Most public storage facilities have ample security. However, it’s still wise to take a few precautions of your own against theft. Pack your storage unit so that your most valuable items are at the back, and purchase a high quality padlock to put on the door.
