Packing tips for the self storage facility in Salem

Packing Tips

Wondering how to get started in packing up your collectibles? Or curious about which box is the best fit your toaster oven? Let us offer some advice.

  • Tape and seal the bottom of the box with at least 2 strips of tape.
  • Use plenty of crumpled paper or other cushioning to generously pad the bottom, top and sides of the box.
  • Pack boxes 100% full so that they have firm, level tops.
  • Boxes must have sealed tops. Open-top boxes are prohibited.
  • Write the contents (2-3 primary items) on top of the box to make unpacking easier.
  • Label boxes/totes with thick sharpie by destination room (LR, KIT, MBR, etc.).
  • Don’t forget to pack: table lamps, wall hangings, and closet items.
  • Anything breakable must be boxed or taken by customer.
  • Reminder: Customer-packed boxes are not insured by VVT.
