Packing your things for storage can be a major undertaking. But the more work you put in now, the less frustration and heartache you’ll have when you need the items again.
Portable buildings are a great asset after a big move, remodel or just for everyday storage. Cook Portable Warehouses builds their sheds to last, so your belongings stay safe and dry. Read about what Cook promises to each of their customers!
- Clean everything.
You may not think you need to clean stuff, but it will help in the preservation of whatever you are storing. This way you can ensure there aren’t any bugs hidden in the items before you store them. Also, when it comes to unpack the items, if stored correctly, you’ll have less dust and dirt to wipe off.
- Purchase the proper packing materials.
Plastic storage bins with lids are probably the best things to use since they are not as susceptible to the elements, such as humidity. Unlike a cardboard box, you can tightly seal these storage bins.
You also want to get packing materials that will help you keep your items safe, especially the more fragile items. To save a little on packing materials, keep old towels and rags to wrap items in.
