StorPlace Self Storage Gives Tips on How to Keep Your Moving Simple

When it comes to packing your belongings up in moving boxes for self storage, there are some specific supplies you may need. These things will make it as simple, safe and convenient as possible.  Some supplies you will need to have on hand are moving boxes, tape, bubble wrap, labels, markers and covers for your couch, mattresses and chairs. These can all be purchased at StorPlace Self Storage in Nashville Bellevue or any other storage facility.

In trying to save money, a lot of people try to get used boxes from nearby stores instead of investing in new ones. It is important to remember that used boxes can and may attract bugs. They may have contaminated food and the scent still remains in the box. They are also not as sturdy and thick. Boxes come in many different sizes. You are certain to find a box for every need.  Different types of boxes include  wardrobe boxes, small and  large mirror boxes, file boxes, dish pack boxes, and regular boxes anywhere from 1 ½ to 6 cubic feet.

You want to make sure you get plenty of tape to tape up the top and bottom of all boxes.  Depending on the number and size of the boxes you are using to move, you will have to get an estimate of how much tape you will use. Make sure you buy good quality tape, or else your box may break and you valuable and precious belongings will be everywhere.  Fragile items require special care. For these items, you may need bubble wrap.  Bubble wrap comes in many different quantities. Small bubbles are good for glass items like dishes and knick-knacks. Big bubbles are good for larger items like mirrors and pictures.

To have an organized move, you should clearly label each box. Moving labels are helpful because they stand out as opposed to regular markers. It helps to know which room each box belongs in.  You may also want to assign a priority system to each box.  For example, you would need plates and cups, but you may not need the toaster for a few days.  The more organized the better.

It is also important to cover your furniture while you move.  If your items   are going into a truck, there is a possibility that it may get dirty or rained on.  You can use mattress covers and sofa or chair covers.  Another tool that movers use is shrink wrap which tightly covers the contents so they do not get damaged during the moving process.
