Typically moving and packing supplies are not included with most portable storage unit rental.
However Bins (gotbins.com) does offer complimentary furniture pads with each portable storage container rental whether you are moving to storage or to you new home. Always ensure that you have enough packing supplies. Affordable moving boxes of all shapes and sizes are easy to find when you go online and make your DIY move go much smoother. Be sure to stock up if you have a couple storage units. Always label every box on the side instead of the top. This will make it much easier to determine where they go if they are stacked on top of each other. Plus, this will help you get them in the correct rooms at the new house so that unpacking goes so much smoother.
Always use good packing paper to wrap breakables in and be very careful when packing them in boxes. Make sure that you write fragile on the box so everyone will know to be careful with it.
Try to use moving boxes that are a uniform size, they’re easier to stack (remember; keep the heavy ones on the bottom and the light ones on top).
Leave small walkways between the moving boxe and furniture in your storage unit so you can easily get to the items you want without having to move anything around. If you’re storing a lot of packing boxes in your unit, try to fill them to the top, even if it’s just with padding and old, crumpled newspapers. Boxes that are only half-filled tend to collapse if anything’s placed on them.
If you’re storing a mobile mini refrigerator or full sized on in your storage unit leave the door ajar. This will prevent mold from growing inside.
Under no circumstances should you keep anything flammable or combustible in your Potable storage unit. This means no gasoline, oil, cleaning fluids or paint thinner. If you’re storing any machinery that runs on gas, drain the tank before you pack it.
