StorPlace Self Storage has all the packing and moving supplies that you need.  Finally, the last, but most important factor is choosing the right storage unit for your storing needs. Listed below are a few tips for when you need to rent a storage unit from packing tips to security concerns:

The first thing to do in storing is packing your personal goods. Boxes are the easiest and most convenient way to pack. Many people have think that the bigger the box the better, but that is not always the case. When selecting boxes, think about what you are storing and who will be moving it. Small boxes, which are great for heavier items such as books and dishes, can get heavy very quickly.  Larger boxes are great for storing lighter items such as towels, blankets, and comforters.  StorPlace Self Storage offers many specialized boxes like mirror boxes which are great for storing mirrors or paintings. When using boxes properly secure them with tape and filler material like bubble wrap and foam peanuts for extra security and protection for your items.

When storing your personal belongings in self-storage, location is very important to consider.  A secure and conveniently located storage facility is a plus. If you are moving to a new town, it is best to find a storage facility closer to where you will be living instead of one across town. A closer location will allow for easier access to your personal goods.  StorPlace Self-Storage has 16 conveniently located and secure storage facilities in middle Tennessee ready to accommodate all your storage needs.
