Spring has sprung! And folks are now springing into action and getting ready to move! Some people like to take the time to make sure their belongings make it safely to their new destination. Others just want to get everything moved and done as soon as possible. Whether you’re the former or the latter, it’s always a good idea to pack your things as neatly as possible. From boxes to bubble wrap to tape to tie down rope; you’re sure to find everything you need for your move here at StorPlace Self Storage!
When packing your boxes, size and weight does matter. You want to be sure to put all of your smaller, heavier items in small or medium size boxes. This enables you to carry the heavier things more easily because there is not as much weight to carry at one time with the small and medium boxes. Good items to pack in small and medium boxes are heavy figurines, books, CD’s or DVD’s, and dishes. When packing those heavy items, you want to make sure you wrap them securely before boxing them up. At StorPlace Self Storage, we have the right stuff for your wrapping needs. We have bubble wrap, newsprint, packing peanuts, and foam sheets. We also have dish and glass kits, which are cardboard grids with foam sleeves that will fit in our small boxes so that you can neatly wrap and pack your fragile dinnerware.
Next, StorPlace Self Storage has large and extra-large boxes for your bigger, bulkier items, such as bedding, pillows, computer equipment, clothing, and cookware. All of the regular packing boxes at StorPlace Self Storage have hand holes on opposite sides of the box to make it easy for carrying from one place to another. We do have boxes that are made for more specific needs, such as lamp boxes, mirror boxes, and wardrobe boxes. The mirror boxes are great for mirrors, paintings, art, and flat screen TVs. We have small and large mirror boxes depending on the size of your items. Our wardrobe boxes are really good for storing nicer clothing. The wardrobe boxes come with a metal bar that hangs from the top of the box so you can use your hangers and still are able to hang your nicer clothing and keep them from getting wrinkled.
Finally, to complete your box packing, you should secure your boxes with tape of course! Why buy your packing tape elsewhere when you can get it at StorPlace Self Storage when you pick up your boxes? We have clear packing tape and paper tape. The paper tape is great for using on the bottom of the boxes and gives your boxes added strength and security underneath. We also have tape guns and dispensers to make taping everything a little easier and faster for you.
We have tie down rope, box labels, shrink-wrap, moving blankets, etc. There is a plethora of different moving, storing, and packing supplies in our stores that you may not realize you need until the last minute. So whether you’re looking for items to make your move go more smoothly or you’re looking for an odd size box to ship that odd-shaped item, you can be sure that when you step into StorPlace Self Storage, you will leave with what you need and have no worries.
