When you are packing up for storage, there are a lot of factors to prepare ahead of time. When you store at Mr. Storage, we make sure you have all the necessary items for an easy and successful storage experience. Beyond just renting storage, we also sell storage supplies at our Toledo OH facility. And when you buy storage supplies from us this month, a portion of that sale will be donated to Susan G. Komen. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Help us do our part in finding a cure for the hundreds of thousands of people who are diagnosed each year.
Here are a few steps you need to take before you are ready to store your items in a storage unit.
Do not leave it to the last minute to find boxes to pack up your belongings. Start acquiring boxes as soon as you know you are going to need them. However, you should stay away from grocery stores and similar places to get your boxes. Because they will still smell like the food that was shipped in them, they will attract pests. Make sure your boxes are clean. If you want brand new boxes that are going to be clean and sturdy, come by our office and browse our storage supplies options.
You can reserve storage units in advance from all three of our Mr. Storage sites in Toledo OH. This saves the storage unit for a specific date without the need to enter any credit card information. Although as your move-in date gets closer, you do need to call the office to complete your payment in order to get access to your storage unit. Other services, like movers and moving vehicles, should also be booked in advance to assure you are able to move all your items the way you want.
You will never be left unprepared when you store with Mr. Storage. Our three locations on Glendale Avenue, Reynolds Road, and South Detroit Avenue are all equipped with storage supplies for sale. Never worry about forgetting tape or bubble wrap. We also have experts on-site to assist with any questions you may have. Start renting today!
