Before packing everything up, make sure all of your items – big and small – are adequately protected for the ride. Wood furniture will need to be wrapped up to avoid any knicks or scratches. Your smaller breakable items (such as lamps, plates, and similar things) should be wrapped and well-secured, as well.

Also, keep in mind that any sentimental or expensive jewelry, as well as confidential papers or documents, should all be kept out of the storage container. While the staff at The Mobile Attic does everything possible to keep your items safe and secure, that doesn’t mean accidents don’t happen. We would hate to see you lose something that isn’t easily replaced!

Heavy Items Go In First

Heavier furniture and boxes should always be put in the container first, so that organizing around them is easier. Try to balance the weight out as best as you can. The weight on one side shouldn’t overpower the weight on the other side, so if you have a really heavy item near the back, put an equally heavy item near the front, as well.

Once you have your big and bulky items set in place, you can easily fill in the gaps around them with your smaller items. This ensures that you have enough room for everything, and it keeps your items packed tightly together, so they don’t fumble around and fall in transit.
