Prepare your Belongings for Storage

It doesn’t take long in the car until you drive past a storage unit. If you’re temporarily downsizing, if you have a large item that you don’t want to sell but also don’t have the space to keep it in your house or garage, if you’re spending a year abroad and don’t want to sell your favorite couch; whatever the reason for using a storage unit, there is a need for them. The challenging part is not finding a storage unit but making sure that your belongings are kept safe throughout the duration of their stay. Read on to learn more about how to prepare your items for storage. At RE Movers AZ, we offer professional movers who are dedicated to making your move as smooth as possible, and we also offer safe and secure long-term and/or short-term storage units. Contact us today to reserve a unit.

Keep Items Off the Floor

Keeping boxes, couches, book cases, and all of your belongings off of the floor is essential in keeping everything safe. With units that are not temperature controlled, there is always the possibility of the floor freezing and damaging items. If the unit’s entry is reached directly from outside, weather can be a factor. Rain or snow can seep in, causing damage to boxes and the items inside. Even with a temperature controlled unit, if something begins to leak liquid, or a neighboring unit has a leak, it can spread to your items and cause stains. Keep everything off of the floor with pallets or a few 2x4s spread evenly throughout the room.

Wrap Everything

Wrap everything from the boxes themselves, to lamps, furniture, bookcases, and everything you don’t want to get dusty. Wrapping boxes will also protect from any bugs that happen to enter. To save money, consider wrapping your items with old bed sheets.

Label Everything

For units that you plan on visiting occasionally to take out items, having a specific label on all of the boxes will help you out. If there are multiple boxes of shoes or books, keep a list of what books or pairs of shoes are in the box so that you aren’t opening up each box to finally find what you want in the last box you open. For boxes that have a lot of items in them, make a list on a separate piece of paper, and tape it to the box. For a large unit, you can also make a map of sorts, so you know that the box that holds your favorite coat is in the back right corner.
