Easy Storage Tips and Helpful Storage Guide

General
Create an inventory list of all items.
Protect items with moving pads, sheets or light blankets.
Label boxes or containers.
Consider clear plastic containers. Clear plastic containers allow you to see contents.
Pack lighter boxes on top of heavier ones.
Do not store any toxins or flammables.
Do not store any food items.

Furniture
Apply furniture oil to wooden pieces before storing for added protection.
Disassemble larger items such as tables, bed frames, etc. to save space.
Put all hardware in bags and label.
Use paper pads when stacking furniture to prevent scratching.

Electronics
Original boxes for electronics are best. Otherwise packing items separately in bubble wrap, cushion foam, and even wadded up newspaper will help.
Label corresponding cords and components.

Appliances
Clean appliances before storing.
Leave doors cracked to prevent mildew.

Pictures and Mirrors
Wrap pictures that are small and stand them on end in boxes.
For larger ones, buy special picture moving boxes.
Always store mirrors or framed pieces on end, not flat.

Crystal, China, and Glassware
Buy boxes designed for this with dividers.
Wrap each item with paper or foam.
Label these boxes as FRAGILE.

Clothing, Curtains, Drapes
Use special wardrobe boxes or garment bags to hang items.
Hang items on non-rusting hangers.
Dresser drawers can be used to save space for storing smaller items.

On-site storage
(Mobile Attics may also be stored at our secure facility.)
If storing your container in a deed-restricted community, review your home-owner association's guidelines for container placement.

When storing your container on a street, please remember to adhere to local ordinances.
