Making lists, planning and packing tips for your self storage process.

The Lock Up Self Storage offers these helpful storage tips to help make your self-storage experience easier:

  • Make a list of all the packing accessories needed to store your items. Bubble-pack, tape, rope, drop cloths, polyurethane sheeting, mattress and furniture covers, pallets, and cartons are just a few of the more commonly used packing items.
  • Leave a walkway to the rear of the self storage unit for better accessibility. Disassemble items such as bed frames to maximize the space in the unit.
  • Place frequently used items near the door or at the front of the unit.
  • Fill containers to capacity; partially full or bulging cartons may collapse or tip over in the unit.
  • Pack heavy items like books or tools in smaller boxes.
  • Fragile items should be cushioned by packing and placed towards the top of the unit.
  • Label your cartons and take home a list of the labeled cartons for easy reference.
  • Line the bottom of your self storage unit with a plastic drop cloth for added protection.
  • Use pallets as a foundation to place cartons on top of the pallets.
  • Mothballs are an added protection for your belongings.
  • Take full advantage of your self storage unit’s space use the full height if possible. Shelving helps organize your unit.
