Doylestown PA storage packing tips

  • Foam sheets and packing peanuts are best for filling a bow with breakables.
  • Prepare with a shopping list of supplies. A few different sized boxes, plenty of tape, and covers for specific belongings, i.e. mattresses, box springs, couches.
  • Do not make it tough for movers to pick up boxes, keep the weight capacity in mind.
  • In the first stages of packing, tidy up a little so all your belongings are in the correct locations and therefore will be packed with similar items.
  • Utilize every space, even storing inside your furniture is a great idea. Remember if you are putting boxes in a large appliance, like the fridge, leave the door open.
  • To avoid ironing out creases, hang dress clothes and drapery in a wardrobe box.
  • It is tempting to store your mattress upright but it can cause your mattress to sag. Instead invest in a cover and store flat on the ground.
  • Talk with our store manager for reliable moving companies in the area to help. You can also call on friends to assist with boxes and smaller items.
