Handy Storage Tips

For when you’re putting your belongings in storage in the Mon Valley, the folks at have posted some handy tips to keep in mind. Following their advice would go a long way in preventing problems–an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, as they say!

  • “Choose the right self-storage unit for your needs. Be sure it is large enough to safely organize and hold what you need to store.
  • Consider spending a little extra money on climate-controlled storage. This will reduce the chance of moisture damage to your boxes and items.
  • Plan what you want to store and for how long.
  • Organize and pack your items with your plan in mind.
  • Be sure to buy appropriate boxes for the items you wish to store.
  • Heavy items should be placed in smaller boxes to make them easier to lift and store.
  • Invest in sturdy, high quality boxes.
  • Bubble wrap is best for keeping delicate and fragile items intact.
  • LABEL all boxes clearly with items inside. This prevents having to dig through boxes later to locate your items.
