Moving / Packing Tips
All items required for packing, moving and storing belongings can be purchased at
The Storage Depot
high quality boxes designed especially for moving and storage
. You can purchase packing supplies and boxes at any of our stores.
Pack books and heavy objects in smaller boxes for easier lifting.
Use wardrobe boxes to store clothes. Hanging your clothes in wardrobe boxes will keep them in good condition.
Use the same size boxes for easy stacking.
Fill boxes completely to prevent collapsing when stacked. Stuff open spaces with newsprint.
Seal boxes completely with packing tape to keep out dust.
Leave a walkway to the rear of the unit for better accessibility. Disassemble items such as bed frames to maximize space.
Place frequently used items near the door.
Fill containers to capacity—partially full or bulging cartons may tip or collapse.
Store couches (except sofa beds) on end to maximize space.
Place fragile items near the top of the unit to prevent crushing.
Label your cartons and take home a list of the labeled cartons for easy reference.
Take full advantage of your space—use the full height if possible. Shelving helps organize your space.
Add bay leaves to boxes when packing goods to ward off most insects and household pests.
Keep refrigerator and freezer doors slightly ajar and clean before storing. Use the space inside for extra storage of other kitchen items.
Wrap mirrors and pictures with paper pads or use mirror boxes. Never store flat.
