Storage in Kannapolis NC
Storage is part art and part science. It takes both planning and a good understanding of space relationship to ensure that your stacks of boxes will not fall over and damage your belongings. You will need to come up with a system that will let you know where you put each item. Hence, it will be easier to find and retrieve items later. If you have used a storage facility before, if you are typical, you may remember the experience of opening every box just to find one item. Most importantly, properly packing and organizing your things will make them last longer. Consider the following tips on packing and storing. They can save you time and money.
Books and office items
Books should be laid flat. This is the best way to protect them. Boxes should not be placed directly on concrete floors. They should be stacked on pallets or skids. Use packing materials to fill out empty pockets in the boxes. Never place fragile items in the same box with books. Take care that you do not overload boxes of books. They can get very heavy.
Bedding and clothing
Every clothing item should be laundered and folded neatly into boxes. Suits and formal apparel should be dry cleaned and stored on hangers under plastic. To avoid infestation from insects and pests, clothes should be stored in cedar chests.
Glassware, and kitchen items
Place a layer of thick packing on both the bottom and at the top of boxes that contain glassware and/or pottery. Ask your storage facility about the availability of dish pack boxes. Fragile items should be individually wrapped. Use packing paper in between cups and bowls. Stand plates and saucers on edge. Glasses should always be wrapped and placed in the top of cartons to avoid breakage. Fill all empty pockets with packing materials. Label boxes that contain glassware. Do not stack them under other boxes. Make sure that every box with breakables are marked “fragile.”
