Packing supplies you need for self storage
Packing your items safely and securely is often overlooked. Unless you want your items to be vulnerable or susceptible to breakage, you need to ensure that they’re packed in the right way. There are many packing supplies you may need for when using self storage, here we list some important one’s.
Cardboard boxes are among the most popular since they can contain many of your items. Use good strong double walled boxes to store your items, don’t go for cheap boxes because they can easily bend and offer less protection.
Pack your things tightly inside every box. Fill any gaps and empty spaces with newspaper or bubble wrap to prevent items moving around and potentially becoming damaged.
Its amazing how bubble wrap can make your packages extra safe. Bubble wrap is perfect for packing fragile items and irregularly shaped ones. It is often available in a range of roll lengths to suit your requirements. If you’re considering a wrapping material for specific belongings, skip sheets of paper and towels because they’re not as effective as bubble wrap.
It’s easy to forget things once they’re inside boxes, as the saying goes ‘out of sight, out of mind’. To help you remember which box contains what items, label them appropriately. Write in big, bold letters and be specific. Labelling things saves you time and effort when searching for specific items.
If you’re packing your items in boxes, you will need good strong packing tape. Tape helps to prevent the boxes from bending and stretching, keeping the boxed closed and the items inside extra secure. There are heavy duty tapes available as well as fragile printed tape which helps to identify boxes containing fragile items.
Packing your items should be done with care. You want to ensure that your belongings are kept safe and sound.
