Mini Storage Tips from Smart Move™ Moving & Storage in St. Petersburg, Clearwater, and Throughout the Tampa Bay Area

There are so many reasons out there to go through all your extra clutter to create more space. Whether you are moving or just doing some much needed cleaning and organizing, mini storage in St. Petersburg is a great way to store all your unneeded belongings.

In order to make using mini storage easier and more accessible, please take the following tips into consideration when packing and moving your things into a self-storage unit:

  • Organize your things into what can be donated, what needs to be thrown away, and what is being put into storage.
  • Use large boxes when packing for lighter items and small boxes for heavier items.
  • Pack books flat in smaller boxes to prevent damage to the spine and binding.
  • Individually wrap glass items and dishware, and store plates on their side to prevent crushing and breakage.
  • If you are storing large items such as refrigerators, freezers, dishwashers, or washing machines keep in mind that soft items like extra clothes and linens can be packed inside of them to free up even more space.
  • When loading your mini storage unit keep valuables in unmarked, secure boxes in the back and make sure items you may need later, like clothes or files, are marked and easily accessible in the front.
  • Cover furniture with blankets or tarps and store on their sides to prevent damage.

The secure mini storage units available here at Smart Move™ Moving & Storage are climate and pest controlled for your convenience, and they are available in a variety of sizes and price plans to suit any storage need and budget.

“Wonderful experience during the hectic time of moving. Made everything possible and on time! Definitely would use Smart Move™rs over and over and recommend to family and friends. On time, courteous, fast, reliable and took care of all my china without breaking a single item!! Thousands of pieces… Thank you Smart Move™!”

“The best service from the office, Giselle and Hannah, to the movers Carl and David. Everyone has been polite, caring, and extremely helpful. What a wonderful company to do business with. What a surprise when Carl and David started padding and shrink wrapping my furniture! It was included in the price not additional like other movers I spoke with! Smart Move™ was the only movers with a 20 foot storage unit, which saved me money as I didn’t need two units. If you need to move be sure you call Smart Move™ first and tell them Claudia B. sent you!!!”
