- Distribute the weight. Spread heavier items across several bins to ensure the bins won't be under too much stress. We care for our staff’s spinal health!
- Group items before packing. Place items together that you'll likely want back at the same time. If you have a winter coat that you often wear with a pair of boots, pack them together. Place all your festive decor and special utensils together. This way, you don't have to request two or three boxes back for only a few items.
- Roll, don't fold! Roll items like T-shirts or towels to maximize space and reduce wrinkles. Stuff socks and small items into shoes to maximize box space and help these items keep their shape.
After we drop off the empty boxes, you get up to 14 days to pack your items. After 14 days, your monthly billing cycle will begin.
For items such as luggages and furniture, we are happy to offer shrink wrap services (not applicable to bikes). Here’s how it works: Our team will first snap a picture of your items at your premises. Next, we will shrink wrap them with care. Finally, we will tag each item with the ID code or ID security tag (for luggages) before we deliver them to our warehouse.
No, unfortunately, we don’t pack on your behalf. We wish to respect your privacy.
Before sealing the boxes, don’t forget to snap a picture of the stored items and complete the declaration form that comes with your order. Each StorageTree box comes with a tamper-evident seals for you to fasten on each side. Additionally, each pair of seals contains a unique ID code that serves to identify your boxes.
