  Tips on Successful Storage Packing

Mobile Attic Tip

Plan your storage space. Place those items that you may need to access often in the front. Allow for walkways.
Mobile Attic Tip Make up an inventory of your items and keep it in a safe place at home or in a safe deposit box.
Mobile Attic Tip CAUTION! Do not store anything COMBUSTIBLE (i.e., Paint thinner, gasoline, solvents, paint, etc.)
Mobile Attic Tip Use uniform moving size boxes for easy stacking. Be sure your moving boxes are strong enough to hold 25-30 pounds. (It is best not to put too much in each moving box.)
Mobile Attic Tip List contents of moving boxes on all four sides; number the moving boxes and seal with tape.
Mobile Attic Tip Stack lighter moving boxes on top of heavier moving boxes.
Mobile Attic Tip Dishes and glasses should be wrapped in paper and packed in sturdy moving boxes. Stack them on top.
Mobile Attic Tip Pictures and mirrors should be wrapped in cardboard and marked "FRAGILE" and stacked on end.
Mobile Attic Tip Furniture with drawers can be utilized as storage places for pictures, knick-knacks, china, silverware, small items, etc. Wrap them in tablecloths, towels or blankets to prevent breakage.
Mobile Attic Tip Larger appliances make excellent "packaging cases" for blankets, towels, tablecloths and clothes.
Mobile Attic Tip Shovels, hoes, rakes and hoses can be stored together in empty trash cans. Stack extra cans inside each other.
Mobile Attic Tip Tables having removable legs should be broken down to save space.
Mobile Attic Tip Sofas and love seats can be stored on end to save floor space.
Mobile Attic Tip If you stand mattresses on their side, prop them up so they stand straight. They may tend to bend out of shape and become lumpy.
Mobile Attic Tip Do not place heavy or sharp objects on top of upholstered furniture.
Mobile Attic Tip Use a good quality lock on your door.
Mobile Attic Tip Put TV's and other electronics in the rear of your unit.
