Storage Aliso Packing Tips
Our household storage needs often encompass the many items of glassware and china received often as wedding presents or passed down through families. These items are precious and often valuable. When placed into storage Aliso residents can take advantage of the mobile storage units supplied by Box-n-Go Storage.
Packing Tips for China and Glassware:
- Take a hint from the professional movers, they use specifically designed boxes for packing china and glassware. They have a double walled construction to protect fragile items. The boxes you drag home from the supermarket will never match the quality so visit a specialist supplier and obtain them.
- Wrap all pieces of china and glassware individually in clean acid free tissue paper. Use several sheets of paper, start from the corner, wrapping diagonally and continuously tucking in overlapping edges.
- A double layer of newspaper serves well as an outer wrapping but do not get newsprint in direct contact with items as the newsprint can transfer.
- A generous amount of paper padding and cushioning is required for all china and glassware.
- Label boxes,”FRAGILE – THIS WAY UP” locate these boxes where they unlikely to topple or be stepped on
- Large china and glass plates, platters and other flat pieces are best placed at the lowest layer in a fragile box.
When using mobile storage Aliso residents can carefully pack the units in their own time following the above guidelines.
While self-storage is nothing new, the portable storage system has changed the age-old system into a convenient and simple storage process. Introduced quite a few years ago, mobile storage units provide an efficient and easy way to pack and store items. Companies like PODS® and Public Storage have, over the years, developed various portable storage concepts, including the portable storage delivery systems and several storage containers sizes, which they referred to as PODS® for Portable On Demand Storage (Box-n-Go Storage is not associated, sponsored or affiliated with PODS Enterprises, Inc.

Today, Box-n-Go Storage has taken the concept pioneered by Public Storage and PODS Enterprises, Inc. a step further: we can deliver one or several portable storage containers that are modular and sized right, at the same time, straight to your door in Southern California.
