Storage Tips

A few hints to make packing and storing your belongings easier:

  • Make a list of all the packing supplies you will need. Such as boxes, tape, bubble wrap, marking pens, rope, and pallets
  • Stack your things in similar sized boxes as they will be easier to stack
  • Stack heavier items on the bottom - But be sure not to over pack boxes so they get too heavy and dangerous
  • Avoid stacking things directly against the wall to leave room for some air flow in the self storage unit
  • Use pallets or blankets to keep items off the floor of the self storage unit
  • Make a plan on how to organize your self storage unit. This will save you time in the long-run. You can store couches on end, stack chairs seat to seat, and use larger items to store blankets, clothes, and smaller knick knacks
  • Leave a walkway down the center of your self storage unit to make accessing all items easier
  • We may need to discuss shelving units to better utilize your storage space. This could even make your space needs smaller and save you money!
  • Label all boxes on all sides. Again, this will save you time in the long run
  • Pack items that you will be frequently accessing towards the front, common sense, we know
  • Take apart large items, such as bed frames, tables, etc. This will save space and prevent them from breaking. Be sure to keep all parts together. Keep screws and smaller items handy by taping them to the larger item they belong to
  • If storing appliances be sure to clean them out first! Leave the door slightly open on refrigerators and microwaves to prevent mildew in your self storage unit
  • Rub a small amount of oil on metal tools, bikes, etc. This will prevent rust - but be sure to separate these to not get oil on other things! Note; CR Storage Warehouses are very dry and moisture is not a problem but prepared metal surfaces is still a good idea
  • Store mirrors and paintings on end, do not lay them flat. Wrap and indicate that they are fragile
  • Lay blankets or cloth over and between furniture to prevent scratching
  • Do not use plastic to cover your belongings. It is not good protection
  • CR Storage Warehouses suggests you not to store any food items. This will  prevent any unwanted guests. If you have to store food then make sure the food is in sealed containers. Our pest control program will ensure minimal pest activity but removing temptation is always a good idea
  • Do not assume that your homeowners or renters insurance will cover your belongings while they are in storage. Check with your agent
  • When wrapping collectibles or anything breakable, tape it after you wrap it. This should avoid mistaking them for excess paper. Use bubble wrap or unprinted paper to wrap breakables. Group similar items together and mark the boxes accordingly
  • If possible, store couches on end. Stack chairs seat to seat. Use the inside of  appliances and drawers to store smaller items. When stacking furniture use paper pads in between the items to avoid scratching
  • When visiting CR Storage Warehouses, make a list of what you are going to be storing so that the our staff can help you determine the correct self storage unit size for your needs. It sometimes helps to compare your possible storage needs to a room in your house ie. a small bedroom or the kitchen (i.e. could you get everything you want to store into one of thoses spaces?)
