And if you've recently found yourself interested in renting a storage unit to keep belongings safe, then here are some tips for packing. Before placing your belongings in storage temporarily or for long-term, there are a few important things you should know. Here are a few packing and storage tips to live by:
How to Pack and Store Appliances
In order to keep your large and small appliances clean, make sure you clean all items before you place them in a Santa Barbara storage rental unit. For instance, if you're storing a freezer or refrigerator, make sure you thoroughly clean it out before you place it into a storage unit. Even if it is completely empty, make sure you take a clean cloth with cleaner and clean it out. Otherwise, it will have a spoiled scent once you come to retrieve it from storage. Remember, you can always ask the storage rental Santa Barbara staff if you have any questions.
Fragile Dish Items
When packing your dinnerware and other fragile items, make sure you use a dish packing box for added protection. Make sure you pack your dishes, glasses and other items in a foam or protective wrap. You can also pack them the old fashion way with newspaper.
Always pack extra paper into open spaces among your dishes. This will give your items a tight and secure fit. Avoid placing your fragile items on the bottom of your box. Make sure you place them on top of your heavier weight items. This goes for when you pack your boxes in your storage unit as well. Place your heavier items on the bottom and fragile items on top.
Utilizing Quality Storage Boxes And Labels
When it comes to storing your items with a Santa Barbara storage rental company, now is not the time to slack off with quality. Make sure you only use quality boxes and packing materials. This will help protect your items, especially if you have a lot of fragile items. Also, make sure you close up your boxes securely. Use packing tape to close up your boxes for added protection.
Another important thing that you will need to remember is to properly label your boxes. There is nothing more confusing that having a storage unit full of boxes and forgetting where you placed your important items. In order to label your boxes, you will need to use packing labels and a permanent dark colored marker. This will end up saving you time, money, and frustration.
