When you pack for self storage, you should take into consideration the four phases of packing. Tackling each phase properly with the right moving supplies ensures your things make it damage-free from your home or business, to our facility, and back to your home or business once again. Whether you transport your things yourself, or you take advantage of the free pickup and delivery we offer in most cities, following through the four phases of packing completely is smart packing.
Padding is one of the most important moving supplies you can use. It not only keeps your delicate possessions safe, it also helps fill empty spaces inside boxes to make them sturdier. When packing dishes, for example, stack plates upon plates with newspaper padding in between. Wad up newspaper to fill any empty spaces as well. Bubble wrap also works as padding in empty spaces. Be mindful of the padding and packing methods unique to the different types of things you must pack to ensure the least amount of damage occurs during the moving process.

Many people scout around their local area to find used boxes at retailers and grocery stores. While you can certainly do this, using these boxes may ultimately cause damage to your belongings as they are transported and stored. Factors such as water damage and punctures weaken the traditional cardboard boxes used in many of these stores.
Your best bet is to buy or rent moving boxes from Boxie24 Storage. When you buy our discount moving boxes, you get brand new cardboard boxes straight from the manufacturer. They are strong and durable, and they cost less than buying boxes from other suppliers.
Our moving boxes for rent, on the other hand, are larger, stronger and reusable. They are eco-friendly and ultimately save you time and money.
It’s important to choose the right size and type of box for the things you’re packing, and we can help you with that by offering such a wide variety of moving boxes for both personal and business self storage.
Labeling your boxes is almost as important as how you pack them. It can be very stressful not being able to find a specific box containing something you need. To make it easy to find what you need in storage, or to identify easily in which room a box belongs during a move, label each box accurately.
Boxie24 Storage offers free labels to help you get and stay organized during the moving process. Not only will our labels help you identify your belongings, it’ll help us identify them, too, if you request a partial delivery of specific boxes within your inventory. We know moving can be stressful, and it’s easy to forget things. Take a look at this moving checklist we’ve assembled to help you remember everything you need to do.
Despite the amount of care you take in packing your things, and the amount of care used in transporting and storing them, damage may still occur. For this reason, it’s very important that you purchase insurance to cover the cost of your things if something does happen.

Whether you move your things yourself, or we pick them up and deliver them for you, accidents do happen. Be sure to ask one of our storage professionals about insurance for your stored items.
