Olympic U-Stor aims to make your

storage in Santa Monica, we can help!
Here are a few packing and storage tips
to keep in mind before you move.
Write up an inventory of all of your items,
keeping them in a safe place at home.
Never Store Anything
This includes paint thinner, solvents,
paint, chemicals etc.
Organize & Prioritize
Place the items that you’ll need
immediately in the front and the items you
might not need right away in the back.
Keep Items Tightly Sealed
This will ensure safety and security.
Be sure to wrap all glassware and dishes in
tissue paper or another paper material.
Paintings, pictures, and mirrors should be
wrapped in cardboard and marked "fragile".
Choose Boxes of Uniform Sizes
This will make it easier to stack boxes.
(Boxes should be capable of holding
up to 25-30 pounds.)
It’s important to stack lighter boxes
on the top of larger, heavier boxes.
Utilize Empty Trash Cans
They’re perfect for packing
shovels, hoes, rakes, hoses, etc.
Utilize Additional Storage
For example, furniture with drawers
can be used as additional storage by
placing smaller, fragile items inside.
Label Boxes on All Sides
This will make the unpacking stage
go more quickly and efficiently.
