Moving Tips & Advice

Having to store items is something that almost everyone has to go through at some point in their life. If you have never stored your items before, then you will want to know more about the tips that are out there to help you prepare your items for storage. Keeping them safe and sound is a must. Store them until your new home in Arlington is ready to go and feel good about the move and storage needs that you are getting.

  • Make sure to properly pack all of your items up and secure them as much as possible. Using bubble wrap and other cushioned items in between fragile items can help to ensure that nothing is broken during transport or storing.
  • Consider the way the items are going to be stacked and label them with numbers, one being the first row that can be stacked on with durable items that will not be broken and then with the numbers increasing for the next rows of items. This can help keep all of the items safe when they are stacked, organized and stored.
  • Break down larger, harder to move furniture as much as possible. This can make your life much easier and also provide you with more room in the storage area.
  • Make sure to place fabric items such as mattresses and blankets in plastic covering to protect them from any elements that might seep into the storage. Being prepared with these items is helpful and can save you a lot of money.
  • Use towels, pillows and blankets to cushion breakable items in boxes and to place between large furniture items that you do not want bumping against each other. This can also save you a lot of money.
  • If you are storing appliances such as freezers then you should make sure that they are cleaned out, thawed and completely dry before placing them in the storage area.
  • Fill up the boxes as much as you can to save on space in the storage area and make sure that each is neatly labeled with the room that it belongs in so you can find the items easier when you move and unpack them.
