Please take the time to review our helpful packing, storage, and moving tips when it comes time to move into your new Blue Lagoon Storage unit.
Whether you need storage for commercial or residential purposes, Blue Lagoon Storage wants to make the experience easier for you.
Packing Small Items
When packing small items, try to completely fill the boxes and use newspaper or towels to fill in any empty space in the box. Completely filled boxes with extra packing, this will both better protect the contents and help prevent the boxes from caving in and being crushed when stacked.
Find the Extra Space
Find that extra space in items such as refrigerators, freezers, and washers and dryers. Remember that when packed properly these spaces can be used to store and protect small items.
Extra Care When Packing
By taking a little extra time and care when packing your items, you can save yourself a lot of aggravation down the line. Pack heavy items in small boxes and label each box so you can find what you need, when you need it.
When moving things into your unit, spend a few minutes thinking about the arrangement of your items within the unit. A few things to consider:
- Leave aisles when possible so you can get in and around your stuff
- Leave space at the back of the unit to access the hardest to reach items
- Put frequently needed items near the front
Break Down Larger Items
Whenever possible, break down any items that pose a wasted space problem. Items such as tables and desks can often be broken down so that the table top can be stored on end.
Use furniture drawers to protect fragile items. The furniture will provide a safer place than in a box and you can simply transfer clothing from the drawers into bags or totes since they need much less protection.
Metal items like bikes, lawn mowers, and tools should be wiped with a rag containing machine oil to reduce the possibility of rust.
