How to Pack Storage Units Santa Barbara: Fragile Items and More

Packing your furniture, fragile ware and other items doesn’t have to be a hassle. Here are a few tips to follow:

Packing and Storing Furniture

When storing furniture into storage units Santa Barbara make sure that you don't lean or prop your furniture up against the walls. If you're packing upholstery, avoid placing it on the floor. It's recommended to place a covering on your upholstery. This will help preserve your furniture fabric and keep it in good condition until you need to use them in the future.

When storing tables, make sure you disassemble the legs and wrap them neatly in paper. If you have a table that you can't take apart, simply put padding on the ground and turn the table upside down with the legs facing the ceiling.

Also, place a plastic sheet on the ground and place your mattresses, sofas and mirrors on end with protective covers. You can also use a corrugated cardboard matt or you can place them on a pallet. To save on space, you can use your dresser drawers to place your linens and you can use your dresser tops for stacking up cartons.

As far as your chairs, simply stack them up on top (seat to seat) or you can place them on top of the tables upside down.

Packing and Storing Fragile Items

Make sure you label each box according to its item name. This is important, especially if you're hiring moving men to pack your boxes into the truck. Make sure you pack fragile items, such as your saucers, dishes, bowls, glassware and tea cups upright. Always place them on the top of the cartons.

When packing fragile items into moving boxes, always stuff them with packing bubbles or paper. This will help keep your items secure. Always make sure your boxes are closed securely. Purchase packing tape to help keep your boxes closed throughout the duration of your transport and storage. It is also important that you keep your boxes under 30 lbs. This will make it a lot easier to lift.

How to Prepare for the Move

When moving furniture and appliances to your storage space, make sure you prepare them for the move in advance. For example, always disconnect your appliances and box up your stereo equipment and TV sets. Also, when placing your items into storage, make sure you place the items that you will use the most in the front. This will make it a lot easier to find.
