Kinston NC storage packing tips

  • First determine which unit will work for your situation. Let our experts help when it comes to making this decision or our online calculator.
  • Assemble enough boxes, tape, labels and anything else you think you will need for moving.
  • When packing your belongings keep any heavy groups to the small boxes and light fluffy items to the large containers.
  • Put a list of what is inside the box so everyone can see it. Clearly mark where it needs to go if going to a new home.
  • Fill pen spaces while packing boxes and when packing the storage unit.
  • Have a plan for when you arrive at the storage unit. Make sure the professional movers or friends know where the boxes need to go.
  • When you are loading the truck think how it will get unloaded. The items coming out of the truck first will be towards the back of your unit.
  • Make sure any breakables are secure with a layer in between each piece so nothing breaks on the way to the unit.
