Chesapeake Storage Packing Tips

  • Use strong packing boxes designed especially for moving and storage. Re-used boxes picked-up at a grocer are often damaged and are not designed for storing household goods. We have all the boxes and packing supplies you will need at great prices.

  • Seal your boxes completely with packing tape to keep the dust out.

  • Use wardrobe boxes when storing clothing. Your garments will hang and be well-protected.

  • Pack heavy objects and books in small boxes. They will be easier to lift and carry.

  • Use the same size boxes as much as possible. They are much easier to stack.

  • Completely fill all boxes with the heaviest items on the bottom. Use wrapping paper to stuff open areas to prevent the box from collapsing when stacked.

  • Use mirror boxes or wrap mirrors and pictures with bubble-wrap or paper pads. Never store mirrors or any glass items flat.

  • Label your boxes on all sides. This will make the contents easy to locate.

  • Wrap dishes and glassware in packing paper and place securely in dish pack boxes.

How to Maximize Your Storage

  • Maximize your storage space by using shelving. Use the height of your storage to your advantage.

  • Leave space for a center aisle. This will allow you to have easy access to all of your items.

  • Place the items you'll need to access most often towards the front of your storage.

  • Disassemble all tables, shelves and other furniture and store them on end. Mark and wrap all the pieces and attach all hardware to make re-assembly easier.

  • Protect your mattresses and other furniture with pads, covers or blankets.

  • Store sofas on their ends to maximize your storage space.

  • Clean refrigerators, freezers, washers and dryers before storing and keep the doors slightly ajar. You can also use the space inside for extra storage of such items as blankets, towels, tablecloths and clothes.

  • Leave a small space between the wall and your storage items to allow for ventilation.

  • Pack your boxes and other items as close together as possible to avoid moisture accumulating between them.

  • Use a high quality security lock, preferably a "disc lock", for your unit to keep valuables safe.

  • Make an inventory of your stored items and keep it in a safe place at home or in a safe deposit box.

  • Stack lighter boxes on top of heavier boxes.

  • Place your storage items on 2" x 4" boards or an “anti moisture product” to guard against dampness. Any concrete floor may become cold and damp.

  • Use furniture with drawers to store knickknacks, china, silverware and small items. Wrap in tablecloths, towels or blankets to prevent breakage.

  • Store shovels, hoes, rakes and hoses together in empty trash cans. Stack extra cans inside one another.

Chesapeake Storage Safety and Security

  • Do not stack next to the light to prevent heat damage.

  • Keep "Flashy" valuables from the direct sight of onlookers.

  • Please note that it's against the law to store materials that are HAZARDOUS or COMBUSTIBLE such as gasoline, solvents, paint, etc. Drain all remaining gasoline from lawn mowers, power tools, boats, etc.
