It may be hard to find or manage temporary storage options, but lucky, there are several tips to make this process a lot easier. First, try obtaining materials you need such as boxes or storage containers ahead of time to eliminate any stress. You should also go through your belongings on a case by case basis and discard any items that you won’t need in the future. When you start packing, prioritize in order of most to least importance. To save space, slip your larger items that can be shrunk, such as coats, in vacuum storage. Don’t forget to label all of your boxes. Good luck!
- Inspect the cardboard boxes you intend to use and make sure they are strong and dry.
- Note that you are not allowed to store flammable, explosive or corrosive items, or certain foods and plants.
- Wrap furniture in thick padding blankets and place fastening elements into sealable plastic bags.
