  • Packing peanuts, bubble wrap and newsprint should be number one on your list. Keep all your valuables from hitting each other and coming out damaged.
  • A starter kit has everything to get your started. Pick up a few extras so the moving process continues.
  • There are many different kinds of tape, clear, tan, even kraft paper, choose one that works best for your project.
  • If you are a business shipping packages, kraft tape has the same strength as the plastic tape but is will keep you within your budget.
  • Put a cover on everything. Our micro-pore covers have the protection you want, made from a breathable material.
  • Moisture is a common issue in storage. Keep any unwanted smells away with Damp-Rid.
  • Pick up a few labels. You will be thankful for the organization when you are unpacking. If you have friends and family helping, they will be happy as well!
  • The kitchen dinnerware and fragile family heirlooms need the most protection. Add a thick plastic drop cloth on the floor of the unit to protect all your treasures.
  •  The larger boxes may seem like the best option for all your belongings but the small/medium containers can handle more of the heavier items.
  • A dish protection kit has everything you need to keep your fine china a complete set.
