Easy storage packing tips:
- Don’t mix materials from different rooms around the house.
- Swap out your artwork with clean walls or new masterpieces. The pictures you are taking down need protection while transporting to storage and in long term storage. Bubble wrap will absorb any bumps on the road and keep the glass from hitting something and breaking.
- Each piece of china needs to be packed separately. Wrap cups in newsprint or bubble wrap for the ultimate protection.
- If the shed is your spring cleaning project this year, keep the most used tools towards the front and the gear you will not use in the back.

- Give your moving team plenty of time to mark the date in their calendars. Whether you are moving a few boxes or the whole house, asking for help makes all the lifting less overwhelming.
