MAKE A PLAN
Gather all the boxes, bubble wrap and tape you will need before getting started so you don't run out.
Ballard Mini Storage offers all moving and packing supplies you need.
Disassemble larger items such as tables and bed frames. Put all hardware in bags and mark the bags
accordingly. Use small colored stickers to easily match electronics and their cords. Keep similar items
BOX IT UP
Individually wrap items before placing them in boxes. Use paper or peanuts to avoid shifting. When
possible, use storage containers and boxes which are specifically designed for what you will be storing.
Think of mirror boxes for mirrors and picture frames, wardrobe boxes to hang your clothing, and storage
bins for ornaments. Label each box on all sides and keep a list for easy reference. Consider using mattress
bags to protect mattresses and box springs and furniture covers to cover chairs and sofas.
To make everything easy to carry, use the small boxes to store the heavier items, and larger boxes for
lighter things. Also, stack lighter boxes on top of heavier ones. Rubber containers are great to store your
items, as they have tight fitting lids and stack easily.
Leave a small aisle in the center of your storage unit so you can easily access your items near the back.
When possible, store mattresses, mirrors and couches on end, and stack chairs.
