San Diego Storage Unit Tips

Refrigerators and/freezers should be thoroughly dry and stored with doors slightly open. Make sure they are completely cleaned before storing.

Bicycles & Metal Items:
To prevent rust, wipe all metals with a rag containing a few drops of machine oil.

Books & Documents:
Pack books flat to protect their spines. Do not place boxes directly on concrete floors, put on pallets or skids to prevent moisture absorption. Use pack paper to fill in the empty parts.

Bedding, Clothing, Curtains, Linens:
Use wardrobe boxes. Big Box Storage provides free wardrobe boxes for moves (must request before-hand)

Dishes & Glassware:
Place a layer of packing material inside the bottom and at top of boxes containing glassware. Ideally these should be stored in a specifically designed dish pack box (available upon request). All glass items should be individually wrapped; nest cups and bowls and stand plates, saucers and platters on edge. Wrapped glasses should be placd near the top od cartons. Fill all pockets with packing materials. Label all boxes containing glassware, and do not place heavy items on boxes containing glassware.

Wrap large lamps and place them in boxes and pack delicate lamp shades separately. Do not use newsprint to wrap lamp shades or any other goods that may be dammages by ink stains. Do not store heavy items on cartons containing lamp shades.

Mirrors, Windows and Screen:
These items should be stored on edge, not flat.
