Optimizing your storage space

At Martineau Movers, we offer a large selection of units of various sizes for short- or long-term storage so you can choose the one that’s best suited to your needs, depending on how many items you have to store. However, given the practical considerations of storing your belongings, for your convenience and peace of mind, it’s best to be well prepared and organized. That’s why, as storage specialists, we’d like to offer you the following tips:

  • Take a precise inventory of all the items you’re putting in storage.
  • Keep everything a few centimeters away from the walls of the storage unit to allow for adequate air circulation.
  • Put the boxes and other items you’ll need to access most frequently closest to the door.
  • Disassemble your furniture and attach the screws and other accessories to one of the parts using adhesive tape.
  • Cover your mattresses and bedding with appropriate packing materials and store them vertically.
  • Protect your sofas, armchairs, box springs, etc. with slipcovers.
  • Leave the doors of your appliances cracked open. Also, ensure that they’re clean, defrosted and dry before putting them in storage.
  • Make sure that your gardening equipment, such as lawnmowers, trimmers and blowers, doesn’t contain any liquid (oil, gasoline, etc.).
  • Use only one or two sizes of boxes so they’ll be easier to stack. Fill them to the top to prevent them from collapsing, especially if some of them contain heavy items, such as books, while others contain light items, such as sheets and linens.
  • Choose specially designed boxes for things such as tableware and clothing.
  • Pack your most delicate and fragile items carefully in plain paper to prevent stains, for example, from newsprint. For added protection, place cloth or bubble wrap inside each box, underneath and on top of the contents.
  • Precisely label your boxes, including the contents and the corresponding room.
