Moving/Storage Tips

About to make the move but are overwhelmed with where to start? Water Tower Self Storage compiled a list of some helpful tips to make your move as easy as possible!

  • Label all boxes on several sides for easy location of items.
  • Seal boxes completely with packing tape to keep out dust, pests, and insects.
  • Pack boxes snugly to prevent collapse when stacked.
  • Leave a center aisle to easily access all items within your unit.
  • Keep items off the floor to allow air to circulate.
  • Place your most valuable items so they are less accessible from the door.
  • Use shelving to maximize your storage space.
  • Spray furniture with a good polish, and lightly coat exposed metal with oil.
  • Leave refrigerator and freezer doors slightly ajar. Store items inside for extra storage space.
  • Most mattresses and couches, except for sofa beds, should be stored on end.
  • Protect mattresses, sofas, and furniture with pads and covers.
  • Wrap mirrors and pictures, never store these items flat.
