When it is time to place some of your treasured possessions into self storage, contact Box-n-Go Storage to use their innovative mobile units. This makes Walker Storage straightforward.
Follow the 5 useful tips below and the other useful advice on this blog to make your storage go without a hitch.
1. Sizes of Boxes:
Try to keep them uniform, this will be easier to stack.
2. Packing Boxes:
Boxes should be filled to capacity as any partially filled boxes will collapse when stacked whilst an overstuffed box can tear or tip over.
3. Books and Magazines:
Wrap these in boxes in plastic to avoid any moisture damage. Books should be laid flat to avoid any damage to spines whilst in storage. Check these boxes are not overweight for handling.
4. Clothes and other fabric items:
Use special wardrobe boxes for hanging using non-metal hangers. Other clothing items can be placed in the unused space in dresser drawers or cupboards.
5. Kitchen Appliances:
Clean these items thoroughly to avoid unwanted pests. Refrigerators and freezers should be clean and dry, keep the doors slightly ajar when stored to prevent mould building up inside them.
Using mobile units Walker Storage will be delivered to your door to any Walker location. You can then take your time to carefully store possessions from your home for safe keeping at our secure facility.
How many storage units do I really need?
Many people underestimate the amount of items they really have. Therefore, they search for self storage without a realistic idea of how many storage units they really need. If you are not sure on how many storage units you need, the best thing you can do is search for storage. Once you find a storage company you like, don’t be afraid to ask questions. A good storage company will be able to give you a general idea on how many storage units you need based on all the belongings you plan on putting in storage.
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.
