Buying Your Self Storage Supplies

We’ve talked a little bit about preparing for your move into self storage, but we’d like to remind you of a few things you can do to prepare for packing.  One of the usual problems we see are customers who haven’t done anything in advance and end up scrambling for storage supplies at the last minute.  Here’s a list of items you will need beforehand in order to make your experience smooth and easy.

  • Packing Tape – You will almost always need more than you think, so it’s good to buy a few extra rolls, just in case.
  • Bubble Wrap – Just like tape, you will probably need more than you think, especially if you have a lot of fragile items.
  • Quality Boxes – Don’t settle on free and flimsy boxes.  Buy high-quality boxes that will hold up over a long period of time.
  • Markers for Labeling – Again, buy more than one.  You will lose at least one in the mix.
  • Hand Truck – If you have heavy items, you will do your back a favor if you use a hand truck.
  • Moving Blankets – Having a couple of these handy will save your furniture from bumps and scratches while you’re moving.

If you can prepare in advance of your move, you will save yourself a great deal of headache and heartache.  Scrambling and visiting the store the day of your move-in is no fun, and it will make your move a stressful experience.  Get organized early and make sure you have all the storage supplies you will need before you need it!
