Helpful Hints for Moving


Having everything you need to pack will make a big difference! Self Storage can help you prepare.


  • Label each box and on several sides.
  • Mark boxes containing delicate items "fragile". Use a red felt tip pen or red "fragile" labels.
  • Fragile items should be wrapped well and have plenty of "cushion" in the box.
  • Pack heavy things in small boxes for easy lifting.
  • Pack your books flat to protect the spines from damage.
  • Use dust covers to protect furniture and mattresses.
  • Mirrors, pictures and artwork should be stacked on their edge.
  • Secure your dresser drawers with shrink wrap for easy transportation.
  • Wardrobe boxes make moving clothes easy. Just move the clothes from your closet to the box.
  • Reserve your storage space before your big move.


Remember, you have only one opportunity to pack it right.
