We got you and your house ready for winter when the thermometer started to drop, but now we are gearing up for the summer time fun.

Kearny NJ storage packing tips

  • Pack your boxes with the perfect amount. Do not leave to much room at the top or load up the small boxes.
  • You will need a mixture of supplys, everything from tape and labels to small and specially boxes.
  • Make a plan for packing, you do not have to pack everything all in one day.
  • Walk through your house room by room determining if everything is important for the flow of your space. Take away anything not working for the area.
  • Pack up one room at time as to not mix materials from another room in the same box.
  • Plastic containers are sturdy and helpful for stacking at the unit, but avoid plastic bags. They trap moisture inside, which will damage your belongings.
  • A trick to remember when loading the truck, put items you will not need often at the door, so they are first into the unit.
