Kelowna Self-Storage Packing Tips

If you’re looking for some tips for moving out, you’ve come to the right place. Moving can be chaotic, but when it’s done properly, much of the stress can be alleviated. We at Airport Village know how much time and resources it can take, that’s why we offer storage in Kelowna. With self-storage, you can keep your belongings safe and organized while in between homes. Take some of the stress out of moving by using the following three moving tips and tricks. 

Create a Schedule and Checklist

By creating a schedule, you know exactly what needs to be done and when. Start by deciding which rooms to pack up first and writing down when you’ll do them. To make things easier, we recommend packing for an hour or two each day so you don’t get overwhelmed. Your checklist will help you stay organized during this process. Be sure to have a tote with things such as toothbrushes, hairbrushes, and other daily necessities so you have them when you need them. 

Invest in Quality Moving Materials

Isn’t it just the worst when the bottom of a box falls through while you’re moving? Making sure that you have the proper moving materials will ensure that none of these little mishaps come up. Quality boxes, bubble wrap, and tape can be purchased right from us if need be which is especially convenient if you’re moving some items into our Kelowna storage units. Make sure to buy labels and have each room of the home written onto them for optimal organization. 

Pack Your Boxes Properly

Lugging around a box that’s just too heavy is a bad experience. We recommend using small to medium boxes, especially for heavier items such as plates or shoes. This way it’s easier to tote them around and they’re less likely to be dropped. You don’t want grandma’s fine china to arrive at your new home in pieces! Don’t overfill boxes either as it creates more work for you when they spill. Pack your delicate items together and make sure they’re properly wrapped, and you’re good to go!

We hope these moving tips and tricks serve you well in your relocation endeavors. If you have any questions or would like to rent storage units in Kelowna, feel free to contact us at Airport Village. Happy moving!
