Storage / Packing Tips

Always remember to lock your unit, locks are available from Swanzey Self Storage.

Make use of empty space such as drawers and cabinets for fragile items.

Label boxes so they can be stored properly and found easily.

Always fill boxes completely to prevent boxes from caving in.

Stuffing boxes with towels, blankets, packing paper, or bubble wrap can prevent damage to fragile items.

Store items such as clothes, dishes, tools, etc…

Do not store paint, bleach, or other combustible items
Do not store perishable items such as food

If you are storing a bedroom set, make sure the mattress is covered and lying on a level surface.

Do not store wet items, dry them before storing them to prevent mold and mildew.

Use protective covers for wooden and cloth items so they are less likely to be damaged by mold, mildew, or dust.
