Roslindale MA storage packing tips

  • Quality packing supplies make a difference. Our office has everything on your shopping list.
  • Stay on budget with the correct size unit. A 5×5 unit will be too small for all your household belongings.
  • Be strategic when packing the moving truck so the unloading process is less complicated.
  • Storing large appliance requires a few days preparation. Unplug and leave the door open to dry out water. While in storage, keep the door open to avoid unwanted mildew.
  • The cold floor may go though a temperature change and make condensation form on the bottom of cardboard boxes. Create air flow by lining the floor with pallets or 2x4s.
  • Safeguard specific materials like wood, leather, and metal. Adding a coat of wax or sealer will preserve the finish.
