Packaging Tips

Here are some helpful tips, provided by Salem Glen Self Storage, on packing and storing that can save you time and money as you move your precious belongings into storage!

Large Appliances:

Refrigerators and/or freezers should be thoroughly dry and stored with doors slightly ajar. Some goods can be stored inside large appliances and boxes can be stacked on top of stoves, refrigerators and freezers. We advise that you make sure stoves and cooking equipment are well-cleaned before you place them in storage.

Books and Important Papers:

Pack books flat to protect them. We also suggest you use packing to fill out empty pockets in the boxes. We highly recommend that you do not pack fragile items in the same box with books. Also do not overload, as these boxes can get very heavy.

Bedding and Linens:

We recommend that clothing, curtains and drapes should be cleaned or dry cleaned and stored on hangers.  Those items that are too large for a box or cannot be hung can be folded and stored in dresser drawers, cedar chests or wardrobe style cardboard cartons along with other bedding and linens. We suggest that food crumbs or stains should be removed before storing. Avoid storing anything that may attract pests, such as uncleaned linens, bedding or kitchen items.

Dishes, Glassware and Pottery:

Place a layer of thick packing inside the bottom and then again at the top of boxes containing glassware and pottery. We recommend that these items should be stored in a specifically designed dish pack box.  Glass items should be individually wrapped if possible: nest cups and bowls with paper in between them; stand plates, saucers and platters on edge. Wrapped glasses should be placed near the top of cartons as heavier items on top can break them. Fill all pockets with packing materials and/or newspaper. Be sure to label boxes containing glassware, and do not place heavy items on boxes containing glassware.

Heavy Furniture:

Disassemble beds and tables; wrap table legs in paper. Stack cartons on dresser tops; use dresser drawers for linens or small, delicate items. Keep upholstery off the floor as it can get ruined. Lightweight chairs can generally be stacked "seat to seat" or placed upside down on the tables.

Holiday Decorations:

If possible, save original cartons that contained delicate ornaments; pad the ornaments with packing paper or newspaper. Wrap light strings around a piece of cardboard and then place in a carton lined with packing paper.

Lamps & Lightstands:

Wrap lamps and place them in boxes; pack delicate lamp shades in separate containers. Do not use newspaper to wrap lamp shades as they may be damaged by newsprint ink stains. Do not store items on cartons containing lamp shades.

Mirrors, Windows, Doors, and Screens:

Store these items on edge, not flat.

Insure Your Goods While They are in Storage:

Items that you store in Salem Glen Self Storage spaces are the sole responsibility of you, their owner. Salem Glen Self Storage does not insure your items. We provide a good quality lock during your rental period as the best way to ensure the safety and security of your belongings. Check with your insurance carrier for your personal coverage, or ask a Salem Glen Self Storage consultant about a plan that is availiable.

Prohibited Storage Goods:

Common sense and state laws determine what may be stored in your storage unit. You are the only one who controls access to your storage space; therefore, never store live animals, perishables, liquids, explosives, flammable liquids and fuels, toxic materials, or other items that need a controlled environment. When it comes to storing any type of gasoline engine: remember to drain the fuel before storage.

Pack Your Storage Space Carefully:

To not only minimize the amount of space you'll need but to also prevent damage, be sure to pack and stack carefully. To have quicker access to frequently used items, place those items near the door and put your valuables in the rear of the unit. Pack heavy items in small boxes to make them easier to carry and place them on the bottom of stacks to prevent damage.
