Packing Tips for Your Self Storage in Tampa

1. Use the Right Size Boxes & Collect Your Storage Supplies

Follow this rule for an easy packing process: Lighter objects can be packed in larger boxes, while heavier items should go in smaller boxes. If you do this, the weight of your items is better distributed in a way that is easier to carry. It also makes each box lighter, so your boxes will not break under the pressure.

Another way to ensure your boxes you do not break is to stock up on new storage supplies. Old boxes hold years of wear and tear and run the risk of breaking with each use. Mini-Maxi Storage has a range of box sizes available in our office that you can purchase, along with locks and any other supplies your storage requires.

2. Reserve Your Storage Space in Advance

When is the right time to start prepping for storage? As soon as you know you need self storage. Mini-Maxi Storage allows you to reserve a specific storage unit up to two weeks in advance. Our contactless storage rentals make it easy to find storage quickly. It is also a good idea to call other services, like truck rentals or moving crews, in advance. You can make sure all your services are set for the right time. Then you can focus on packing your belongings.
