Here’s some tips from Alluster for preparing your stuff to storage:
Moving to a new city, transitioning to a home, or clearing some clutter? You need to know how to pack and organize a storage unit so you can store extra furniture, get unwanted clothes out of the way, and hide that extra stuff. Read on to find out how to wrap/protect your items from damage, how to expand space, and how to keep your furniture for pick up.
Wrap and protect any fragile items
Stretch wrap is a necessity in your kitchen, but did you know it’s also useful for your move? It can protect furniture from scratches and scuffs. Since it sticks to itself, but not to surfaces, plastic wrap is exceptional for bundling and securing items without causing damage or leaving a sticky residue.
Disassembled pieces are easier to pack and transport. Don’t forget to pack all small items separately and to attach them to the piece they belong. By following this procedure you will also be able to fit more into storage. This process of packing will make your unpacking and assembling easier.
Maximizing space in your moving bins can also let you store more of everything. Fill the larger boxes with small or light objects and keep the smaller boxes for heavier objects. The boxes will be more compact, thus easier to transport without risking breaking anything. Let us know if you need some boxes and we will have some handy in our truck for your pick up.

Last but not least, make sure you know where Your Loading areas are and have your elevator booked ahead of time if applicable. This will save time and stress and make sure you aren’t forced to reschedule with your building manager. Once, that is taken care of, the Alluster team will do what they do best and you can sit back, relax and enjoy the rest of your day.
