At Stow and Go Storage, we are all about providing you with quality mini-storage options and unbeatable customer service. That’s why we offer two state-of-the-art storage facilities in the Greenville, NC area. With two locations and a variety of unit sizes to choose from, you are sure to find mini-storage that meets your specific needs.
Now that you’ve decided to get a mini-storage unit, and you’ve picked out what size unit you’d like, it’s time to start thinking about what you’re actually going to be packing your items in. There are a number of options when it comes to storage boxes and packaging, and certain options are better than others, depending on what in particular you are trying to store.
When it comes to boxes, your two main options are the traditional cardboard boxes and plastic storage totes/containers. Cardboard boxes are better suited for short-term use, like when you’re moving from one place to another. So, if you’re only planning on using your mini-storage unit for a few months, while you move or renovate your home, then cardboard boxes will be just fine. However, be sure not to overload your cardboard boxes with too many heavy things, as the boxes can bend and break during the move.
If you want to store something long term, then it’s a good idea to invest in plastic storage containers as they help to keep out moisture, mold, and insects. In addition, clear plastic containers help you to see what’s stored inside for easier access.
If you’re storing larger items that won’t fit into a box, like furniture or appliances, then you can cover them with old blankets, towels, and quilts in storage to keep them dust and scratch-free. It’s also a good idea to store them in the back of your mini-storage unit so that you don’t have to move them around every time you want to access something in storage.
For fragile items that you’re packing into boxes, you’ll want to cover them in newspaper, bubble wrap, or towels to protect them from breaking during the move and while they’re in storage.
For all of your mini-storage needs, be sure to give us a call at Stow and Go Storage in Greenville, NC.
