Wilmington NC storage packing tips

  • First gather a few supplies like boxes, tape, and even a few dust covers. If you have pallets or old 2x4s around the house, you can use these to keep boxes off the ground.
  • A large blanket stops your artwork from getting damaged along the way, but tape the glass pane to stop it from shattering.
  • Your plates and glasses should be individually wrapped and packed upright, possibly in their own box.
  • Keeping everything tightly packed is the goal but do not forget to leave a path to the back row of boxes in case you need in them.
  • Tidying up before you start putting things in boxes helps store everything with similar items. Avoid the miscellaneous box.
  • Gaps under tables, chair legs, in dressers, are all valuable space to store, do not leave these areas empty.
  • If you are moving to a new house but preparing to sell, keep a box off to the side for the new house. This will be the very first box unpacked and should have essential items, like hand soap.
  • A protective barrier between each plate or bowl helps absorb any moving while in transit to storage.
