BUY MOVING BOXES AND PACKING SUPPLIES IN RALEIGH, DURHAM, BURLINGTON, GRAHAM, & WILMINGTON

Moving can seem a daunting task. At Cardinal Self Storage we know how to break it down into manageable pieces that are doable. Moving boxes play a major part in making sure that your belongings come out of storage in the same shape they went in. In general, bulky and lighter items such as linens and pillows go into large boxes, while heavy books get packed into smaller boxes. That way large boxes do not become so heavy they are impossible to move or lift. One rule of thumb is you will need four small and medium boxes for every large box. When it comes to packing materials and moving supplies, go for quality. Good equipment such as professional-grade tape and a sharp cutting tool can make all the difference when you have a big packing and storing job ahead of you.

PURCHASE STORAGE MATERIALS AT ALL LOCATIONS

The first big tip from Cardinal is to pack boxes so that they are full, but not overstuffed. This will become important when it comes time to stack them in the storage unit. Boxes need to be stable to sit atop one another. If they are too empty, they can collapse; if they are too full they can tip over. Other advice includes:

  • Label everything clearly, and include an arrow for which side should be up
  • Hang clothing and draperies in wardrobe boxes
  • Break down large items that can come apart, such as bed frames
  • Pack glass tabletops and mirrors upright instead of flat
  • Use sufficient wrapping material to protect delicate items, and wrap them individually
