Packing for Self Storage in Milton

Photo credit to: http://www.flickr.com/photos/66992990@N00/ Using a self storage facility in Milton, like the ones offered at James Snow Storage, is simple if you follow a few common sense guidelines. What you want to consider about self storage is that you do not have to pack things up in boxes and never see them again! With the proper organization and planning you’ll be able to access those items that you do not year round, but still want to access from time to time. Here are some tips on what you can do to make your storage space more than just a place you leave your valuables and forget about them:

  • Be sure to invest in high quality boxes that have not been used much. Going down to the local grocery store and asking for some is cheap, but your items are not. All too often old worn boxes collapse and break items.
  • No matter how clean the facility is your belongings will collect dust. Putting everything in boxes will keep them clean.
  • Fill your boxes right up to help make them sturdy. Half full boxes cave in and collapse. To keep them from getting too heavy you can fill them up with paper, towels, or bubble wrap.
  • Put a large label on every box. This will make it easy to find what you’re looking for. Labels that are small and hard to find make for hard to find boxes.
  • To remind yourself later on, be sure to mark ‘Fragile’ on all boxes that contain breakable valuables. Don’t trust your memory to just recall what exactly is in a box months or years later.
  • Avoid using sealed plastic bags as the items inside tend to get covered in mildew from humidity in the air.
  • Never store wet items in your self storage unit. They will cause mold, mildew and water damage to your other belongings.

With these few tips you’ll be able to take better advantage of your storage unit in Milton. Contact us today to find the one that is right for you!
