Start gathering the packing materials youâ€™ll need well in advance of your storage move â€“ often times there are sites like cragslist.com or freecycle.org that have FREE packing materials offered in the FREE section! Thatâ€™s awesome! Some things you may need to find or buy are sturdy boxes, packing tape, thick markers, old sheets for furniture covering and bubble wrap. Remember that old newspapers or other recyclable paper can sometimes be used in place of bubble wrap â€“ think dishes or picture frames.
Use airtight containers to prevent moisture and mold. Always back up electronic copies stored in another location just in case. A great way to store is in the original containers if youâ€™ve kept them. Make sure you store in a climate controlled environment since electronics are sensitive to moisture and heat.
Depending on your organizational style, it might help to keep a running list of all the items youâ€™re packing â€“ that way you know whatâ€™s in your storage unit when you come back to it later. Or if youâ€™re more visual, draw yourself a rough map of where you place certain boxes in storage. However you do it â€“labeling is important. Making your life easier post-storing is key for stress free storage retrieval.
