So, you’re moving home, moving away from the nest and it can make it into a stressful environment for you and your family. Correctly packing up your furniture and other household items is important, especially when you place your things in our secure Self-Storage units, but with proper planning it doesn’t have to add to the stress.
In this blog, we will help you though the whole moving process to make it that little bit easier.
4 ideal Self-Storage Tips:
One room at a time
Pack up and declutter one room at a time and make sure to clean as you go. Avoid taking up unnecessary space in your new home by getting rid of items you no longer need, before the movers arrive. Donate items that you won’t be taking with you and consider renting a Self-Storage unit to store items that you may need later in life.
Protect fragile items when packing for Self-Storage
Don’t take shortcuts when packing your breakables. Often these items hold sentimental value and may be irreplaceable. Make use of clothes, towels, linen and newspaper to wrap fragile items and protect them during transit and storage. At Blue Box Storage – Self-Storage Units we sell a variety of packing materials to safely protect your items.
Label all boxes
Label each box and group them into their respective categories so when it’s time to offload or unpack, you’ll know exactly what is in each box. Colour-coding is another packing tool that can be used, by assigning a colour to each room. Make a note of the colour code you’ve assigned so that you don’t forget. Make sure to pack a box of first day essentials and label it clearly. Labelling each box will make unpacking easier and if you are going to put them into Self-Storage, they will be easy to find.

Plan Out Your Move Ahead of Time
Like anything in life, when it comes to moving, it helps to have a plan in place. “Having a plan definitely makes moving less stressful, emotionally and financially,” Basically, the more issues you can foresee and take care of in advance, the better.
Bryan Merrett, Blue Box Storage CEO agrees. “Plan ahead — don’t start packing on moving day and don’t start cleaning on moving day,” he says. “The only thing you should be doing on moving day is moving.” He says this means physically moving furnishings and boxes from one place to the other. “That task is demanding enough, so do not complicate it with packing, wrapping, and disassembling furniture,” Bryan says.
