Princeton NJ storage Packing tips

  • Rent the right size unit. If you need help deciding, use our online calculator or talk it over with our store manager.
  • So your boxes do not absorb moisture from the cold cement, pallets keep the air flow consistent and will be sturdy enough to hold your heaviest boxes.
  • It is a good idea to label everything but go a step further and mark all 4 sides.
  • The change in temperature can be harsh on certain materials like a porous wood surface. A lubricant on the exterior will stop them for warping.
  • Keep a list of where things are in your unit. This is something to prepare ahead of time so moving is more efficient.
  • Make sure your box containing your china set is clearly labeled.
  • Putting padding on the top and bottom while also wrapping each piece is the safest option for breakables.
  • Have a few big items? Let a professional moving team help with the large chests and wardrobe.
