We know how daunting it can be to start putting your stuff in storage. Luckily, working in the industry for years, we’ve picked up a lot of tips and tricks. With that in mind, here are 3 storage tips from our experts.

1. Pack Jewelry the Smart Way

When you’re using mini-storage or moving in Greenville, NC, jewelry tends to get tangled, broken, or lost. There are some things you can do to keep it from happening:

  • Use a Toilet Paper Roll– Connect your necklaces through the roll to prevent them from knotting
  • Try Egg Cartons– Egg cartons are a great way to protect small pieces of jewelry like earrings, rings, and bracelets.

2. Label Small Parts

It’s important to keep your screws and bolts organized when you’re heading to storage or moving. It’s so easy to lose small screws, bolts, and nots. Use packing tape to tape them to the underside of furniture or for bigger pieces tape ziplock baggies with the small pieces with them.

3. Double Box Valuables

If there are any valuables you’re worried about breaking later on, try double boxing for an extra layer of protection. This is a great solution for electronics like your computer or TV to make sure they come in one piece.
