1. Keep Storage Supplies at Your Disposal

Does your tape tend to go missing when you need it? Put together a bag to give yourself easy access to all your storage supplies while packing. As long as you bring it with you and return the supplies to the bag, you will always have everything you need. We sell storage supplies on-site at each of our office locations if you need boxes, furniture covers, or anything else for packing. When you buy from us during October, a portion of your sale will go toward a donation to Susan G. Komen for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 

2. Get Quality Boxes for Heavy Items

Heavy objects, especially books, are your boxes’ and your worst nightmare. Just because you can fit many items in a large box does not mean you should pack it up as tight as you can. Boxes that are too heavy can break at the bottom and be detrimental to the safety of your items. Heavy boxes also pose a risk of injury to whoever carries the box. Purchase quality boxes in different sizes for your heavy and fragile items. Then use your smaller boxes to pack the heaviest items. You can pack your lighter objects in your larger boxes.
