Glenmont Self Storage

  • The most useful tip that we can give is to be prepared. Gather all the materials and supplies you need before you start: boxes, tape, packing materials, markers, furniture covers and so on. Remember, Glenmont Self Storage sells everything you need.

  • Use the triple L in packing and storing (Label, label, label). Mark every box with its contents, and keep a written inventory as you pack.

  • Be careful not to store anything combustible (such as paint and chemicals) or perishable (such as food that is not permanently sealed).

  • Use furniture drawers to hold delicate items. Wrap them in bubble wrap or newspaper

  • Use the right box. Use large boxes  for light items (linens, pillows, lamps) and smaller boxes for heavier items (books, CDs).

  • Take care. Pack small things carefully into boxes with appropriate Packing Materials. Resist the temptation to toss things into a garbage bag, Boxes are sturdier and stack well, taking up less space and they risk damage from knocks or bumps and mildew from lack of ventilation.

  • This side up. If you combine different weights of items in one box, always put the heavier things on the bottom and mark the box “this side up.”

  • Don’t overload. Packed boxes should only weigh as much as you can lift without straining – for most people, less than 40 pounds.

  • Tape it up. Make sure all your packed boxes are securely sealed with packing tape, with the tops flat (to make it easier to stack them).

  • Hang it up. Use a wardrobe boxes to hang clothing, draperies and other fabrics that need to breathe and be kept crease-free.

  • When storing lawn and garden equipment, drain any fluids prior to storage in order to avoid corrosive damage.

  • Break it down. Disassemble bed frames and lash them together with tape or twine. Use small plastic bags to store screws and bolts and tape them to the frame that they belong to.

  • The last but not least, Respect breakables. Wrap dishes and glassware individually, and pad the box with packing paper or bubble wrap.
