Storage Guide

Move Your Stuff—and Remove the Hassles

Moving and storing your items doesn’t have to be a hassle. Secure Self Storage can help. Your source for simple solutions to common moving problems—such as finding a truck (it’s free here) or the right packing supplies (they’re sold on site)—we also offer this easy-to-follow guide to a pain-free move.

  1. Plan ahead to make your moving experience less stressful. Take your list of items to one of our facilities and one of our experienced professionals will help you get started.
  2. Always reinforce heavy boxes with tape to avoid a mid-move disaster.
  3. Protect yourself from injury and save time and energy by using dollies and pallets. (Each Secure Self Storage facility offers free dollies for your convenience.)
  4. Stack items carefully to maximize the space in your moving truck. Put fragile items at an easy-to-reach height and keep them safe from a fall.
  5. Label boxes carefully. Don’t forget to mark boxes with fragile items.
  6. When disassembling furniture, make sure to mark or number each piece for easier reassembly.
  7. Use Secure Self Storage wardrobe boxes to move clothes quickly and keep them wrinkle free. (They’re sold on site.)
  8. Don’t risk it. Always pack your fragile items with extra packing paper. This includes items such as dishes, delicate antiques and glassware.
