Once you are positive that you are down to necessities, you can begin to prepare items for storage.
It’s best to store clothing on hangers. There are boxes available that are equipped with a cross bar for hanging items. Be sure clothing as well as blankets and other cloth items are cleaned before storing. If you think you might need access to your clothing before you have moved be sure to let the movers know so that they can place them in an accessible area in the storage unit.
Books and Decorative Items
Books are easy to pack, but it’s easy to over pack boxes making them too heavy causing the bottom to break out. Be sure to pack them flat to avoid damaging the spines. Wrap each decorative item individually as combining items might cause them to scratch or break from banging together. Be sure to mark boxes fragile if they contain breakable items so extra care can be used and they can be stacked toward the top of the storage unit out of the way where they are less likely to be jostled.
Label all your boxes for ease of unpacking. You also might find that you need an item while it is being stored and this will make it much easier to locate. Do not send anything to storage without a lid. All items should be in a tub with a sturdy top or in a box that is taped shut. Plastic wrap around boxes will also keep the dust out. When packing boxes, be sure to fill any gaps with paper or bubble wrap to keep items from shifting and breaking.
