Below are some tips and guidelines we have found to be useful.


1. Make sure to consult MY STORAGE when select your moving company and we will also assist you in finding the exact right size rental unit at a storage facility.

2. We find that it is best to move on a weekday when banks, utilities and government offices are open.

3. Keep a utility log to check service-transfer dates. If you're moving locally, leave the power and water on at your old address a few extra days so you can go back and clean up after your move.

4. Select a "packaging room" ahead of time and box up a few things each day.

5. Apart from marking each box with its contents and future destination room keep a check list of all boxes.


1. Packing your boxes, group items of similar size and weight. Try not to mix belongings from different rooms of your home. First, pour a layer of packing peanuts into the bottom of the box. Wrap heaviest items first with bubble wrap or packing paper and place them in the bottom of the box.

2. Wrap additional, lighter items with bubble wrap or packing paper and separate them from items in the bottom of the box with cushion foam. Place heavier items on the bottom and lighter items on top.

3. Before closing your box, cushion the entire package using packing peanuts or crumpled packing paper stuffed firmly into unfilled spaces to prevent shifting and damage to your goods. Your filled box should not weigh more than about 15 kilograms, or that which you can lift easily. Under packed boxes may collapse in transit, while over packed boxes can rupture, damaging belongings.

4. Close the box and seal it with sturdy packing tape. Label the box with its contents and destination room.

Self Storage

1. Let MY STORAGE help you to plan your self storage, remember that our storage units are three dimensional as in length, width and height. At our store you can apart from boxes and other packaging material rent or purchase shelving systems that will maximize the utilization of your unit size.

2. When packing your storage unit create a center aisle for access to all items so that it all won’t need to be brought out every time you want to retrieve goods. Store items you'll need most often at the front of the unit.

3. When storing tables and other furniture with legs remove and disassemble to conserve storage space.

4. Remember that MY STORAGE is here to make your moving and storage experience as pleasant as possible, please do not hesitate to contact us for any concerns you may have or for further information.
