Coatesville PA storage packing tips

  • Start with the right supplies, boxes, tape, and labels.
  • Remove couch cushions so you can vacuum any crumbs from underneath. Wash pillows and seat covers so everything is fresh going into the unit as well as when it comes out.
  • Applying a spray finish to wood or leather furniture will help seal and protect these materials.
  • If you can make large furniture smaller you will save yourself valuable square footage in your unit. After removing screws or brackets put them in a clear bag and secure them to the pieces.
  • Storing appliances? Make sure all water has been dried out and any hoses are stored inside.
  • Avoid folding clothes for a long period of time because that will create deep wrinkles. Instead, a wardrobe box will be the solution for hanging garments.
  • Key point to remember when filling boxes is smaller boxes equal heavier items, and large containers equal lighter belongings.
  • Either put a list on the outside of each box of what is inside or have a master list to leave at the unit for your next visit.
