Self Storage : 10 Mini Storage Packing Tips
 by: Peter Seychelle

Most self-storage companies will offer packing as an additional service, so, in most cases, to save cash, you'll be packing up yourself. The packing process is an art and you'll need to put some thought into it before you begin.

Some of the more helpful packing tips have been assembled, and included below:


  1. Box everything that you can - everything that is left unboxed in a self-storage facility will get dusty and very dirty.


  2. Clearly Label all boxes so you can identify the contents and keep an inventory.


  3. Itís wise not to fill large boxes with heavy items such as books as they'll quickly become impossible to carry and may break.


  4. Avoid packing items in sealed plastic bags, as humidity can cause mildew.


  5. Book packing tip, store them flat to avoid damaging their spines.


  6. Mirrors and pictures need extra protection in a self-storage facility, stack them on their ends and securely wrap in bubble tape. Pictures and mirrors should never ever be stored flat.


  7. Before storage, separate lamp bases and lamp shades and securely wrap them for protection.


  8. A good space saving technique is stacking chairs seat to seat. A small dust cover above them will keep them nice and clean.


  9. For added protection of your wood furniture, spray with a good quality furniture oil before storing it in the facility.


  10. Expect to be asked to drain the tanks if you're storing items with fuel tanks such as lawn mowers and cars. Fuel is one of the several things that you *cannot* store in a storage unit facility.

Think creatively and you can easily make more space out of an existing unit! And when researching self storage units in the Atlanta area, click on http://www.myselfstorageunit.com/atlanta-self-storage-units.html to quickly find mini storage unit in the metro Atlanta area!

Peter owns and operates http://www.myselfstorageunit.com, an online self-storage unit facility locator. The site neatly organizes mini storage by state & city, and provides links to mapping locators for easy reference
