Follow these packing tips to keep your items safe throughout their time in storage.
You should have padding in between fragile items that are packed into a box. This padding can be bubble wrap, newspaper, or anything soft you have laying around the house (like towels or pillowcases). Besides just lessening the impact of the objects hitting each other if it does happen, padding also fills the extra space in a box to prevent any items from moving around.
You should start gathering boxes as soon as you know you will need to pack up your belongings for storage. When looking for boxes, avoid getting them from grocery stores. The smell of food lingers on the box and can attract pests. Purchase new boxes to assure they are clean and can handle the weight of your heavier objects. A trick to packing boxes is to pack heavy items in smaller boxes and light objects in larger boxes to make your boxes safer to move.
