Whether you are doing a remodel or renovation on your current home, or if you are anticipating a move to a new home that you are currently building, one of the best tools that you can get are construction storage rentals. A storage container can be parked onsite in front of or next to your home, allowing you to move your furniture and other belongings into it temporarily while contractor work is being done on your home.
Construction storage containers can also be used in the event of emergency work, such as repairing a roof after a storm or making repairs after a fire. Some homeowners will even use these handy mobile storage containers in New Bedford to load up their entire household for a simpler, easier move across town or to another northeastern state. However you choose to use a storage container, this article will provide you with tips on how to load it better to maximize your space potential and to get the best results.
In order to pack your belongings in such a way that they will be protected when the storage container is moved, either somewhere else on your property or to a new location, you will need some basic packing and moving supplies. Getting all of these items together ahead of time and keeping them in a central location will make your move much easier and prevent you from having to go back out to get something that you forgot.
For most moves you will need the following items:
The best way to pack a box is to think first about what will go in it and how it will be moved. You don’t want to pack your boxes so full that they are difficult to move around, but you also want to make sure that you put more than one or two items inside, so you can maximize your space in the construction storage containers.
Another thing to consider is whether or not the item is breakable. Fragile items should be wrapped in bubble wrap and cushioned with packing peanuts or other filler materials. Make sure to clearly label that the item in the box is FRAGILE by writing on the carton in a couple of places. If the box should remain upright for extra protection, draw arrows and write “this side up” so you will remember.
Always tape the bottom of the boxes so they won’t fall open. Even if this is just a temporary situation where you are using construction storage rentals during a remodeling project, make sure to protect your belongings. Make sure boxes are filled so that nothing can move so items won’t get broken, dented or chipped. Mark what room the boxes came from so you will be able to find things easily when you unpack.
