Packing materials you need for well-organized storage


You don’t always use packing materials just for transport. You can also use them when you need to pack items for storage. They provide extra protection from any possible damages that can happen. This is why our goal here is to present you with the most important packing materials you will need when storing your items in storage units.

Make a list of items you are storing and the gather packing materials

It is not always easy to pick proper packing supplies, but you will have to do it this time. There are many items you can use, but they won’t provide proper protection to your items. This is because transporting items and storing them in storage units is not the same thing. Packing materials used when storing items is more durable and different, depending on the items you are storing. So, before you start gathering packing supplies, make a list of items that you plan to store. And depending on that, gather supplies. Once you are done with that, you should think about the ways to transport those items. Hiring a moving company to help you can be a good idea. Because when your items are in the hands of reliable and affordable movers Brooklyn you will know that the transportation will go easy.

Start cleaning your items

After you decided which items go to storage units, you will need to prepare them before packing. And the best way to do it is to clean them. Depending on what you are storing you will use different cleaning techniques. For instance, if you are packing tools you will clean them with one type of cleaning solution. Wooden furniture and surfaces with another, etc. This is a very important process because you will put another protective layer on these items. It will protect them from any dust and mold in the storage unit. And if you happen to find it, there are ways to deal with mold.

What are the perfect packing supplies

Now after you finish these steps you should start gathering the supplies. As we mentioned before, you should have in mind what you are storing. The most common packing supplies you will use include packing tape, rope, cardboard boxes, blankets, sheets etc. These are the material you will use to wrap around the items you wish to store. They are perfect for wooden items that need protection, but at the same time, gentle enough not to damage it. Use sturdy boxes and crates if you are storing expensive machinery and tools. They are heavy and big. Cardboard boxes can easily break and won’t provide enough protection when storing. You have to remember this because that’s the only way you can know your items are safe. The very last step is to find a proper public storage New York. If you rent safe storage that is also climate controlled, you won’t have to risk the safety and condition of your items.

These guys are TRUE PROFESSIONALS! We've now moved with them twice (once in 2017 and then again this week) and we really can't say enough good things about them. Simi is incredibly easy to work with for scheduling and quotes, and the crews - John, Super Mario, and everyone - are just awesome. They're quick, incredibly careful and conscientious, and super friendly. If we ever move again (and god I hope we don't have to) we're absolutely calling them.
