How it Works_Moving Tips Header

Start Smart. It's Simple.

Organization is the key to a successful move. Our conveniently sized containers are the perfect solution to keep your belongings sorted, separated and neatly packed. Since each storage container holds contents of one to one and a half rooms, you can pack and load each room in your home separately—instead of jamming everything into one giant storage pod or moving truck.

Pack one room at a time; it will help when the time comes to unpack.
Pack a couple of cartons a day, starting well ahead of the move.
Mark all boxes with room and box number.
Make a moving notebook and list each box with notes inside.
Make sure to thoroughly tape the bottom seams of the boxes to prevent damage.
