Helpful Moving Tips
When Storing in Non-Climate Storage:
It might be a good idea to wax wood furniture before storing it. Some woods can be sensitive to moisture. Disassemble bed frames and tie them together. Use zip- lock bags to store screws and bolt and tape them to the items that they belong to. If you stack furniture items, place pads, blankets, or towels between them to prevent scratching. Take down lawn furniture and tables if possible. Store frames in back corner to prevent them from falling over on other items.
Don’t use plastic to cover items in non-climate self storage as moisture can condense under it. Consider using sheets or cotton cloth.
Stand mattresses on end, as well as sofas with pallets or cardboard under them. It is a good idea to wrap mattresses in mattress bags or cover them with paper or cloth. Stand mattress on something to allow airflow and to prevent moisture from getting to them. Walls may develop condensation, therefore it is not advised to lean items against the walls.
Consider using climate-controlled self storage.
Pictures and Mirrors
Wrap pictures that are small and stand them on end in boxes. For larger ones, buy special picture moving boxes. Consider using foam or bubble wrap.
It is best to consider climate controlled storage for electronic equipment.
It is a good idea to use the original boxes. If you don’t have them, pack items carefully and use cushion material. Bubble wrap, cushion foam, and even wadded up newspaper will help. Pack items separately. Stack record albums on end to prevent warping and use small boxes to hold down the weight. Consider the temperature as heat can warp CD’s and record albums.
Helpful Tips for Moving
Plan your move early, if possible. Notify your postal service. Change banks, if necessary. Put in change of addresses to all subscriptions and other mailings. Make sure you have a reservation for the equipment you need for the move: trucks, dollies, and other moving items. Have plenty of rope, tape and moving boxes on hand for packing and tying down.
