To keep your storage costs as low as possible, it’s important to store your items in a way that maximizes the space in your storage unit.

Here at Snap Self Storage we offer some simple,
easy-to-follow packing and storing tips to help
you plan the storage of your items.

  • Label Everything

    Label Everything.

    Label each box and where the items came from. ‘Kitchen’,
    ‘Mary’s Bedroom’, etc. Remember to mark breakables as ‘fragile’.

  • Box it Right.

    Box it Right.

    Use the proper size box for the items you’re storing and be sure to use bubble wrap, styrofoam peanuts, or newsprint to secure the items inside each box. Mark heavy boxes appropriately to avoid lifting injuries. Be careful using boxes from the supermarket, as stains and food residue in these boxes can ruin your items or attract insects. Snap has new, clean boxes available. Simply contact us and we’ll be glad to help you.

  • Wrap it Up.

    Wrap it Up.

    Items like mirrors and pictures should be carefully wrapped and marked as fragile.

  • Garbage Bagless.

    Garbage Bagless.

    Storing items in garbage bags subjects them to mold (from lack of ventilation) as well as bumps and bruises from improper protection. Use boxes when at all possible.
