Declutter and Move with Ease

Living in California's bustling Central Valley often means juggling limited space with an active lifestyle. Seasonal gear, hobbies, or even business inventory can quickly clutter your home or garage. Portable storage offers a convenient solution, but packing and utilizing these units effectively requires a strategic approach. Here at Vault Moving & Portable Storage, we want to help you maximize your portable storage experience.

Pre-Move Planning for Portable Storage Success

  • Declutter Before You Pack: Don't pay to store items you no longer need! Dedicate time to declutter and donate, sell, or recycle unwanted belongings. This reduces packing time and minimizes storage costs.
  • Choose the Right Size Unit: We offer a variety of portable storage unit sizes at Vault Moving & Portable Storage. Carefully assess your needs to avoid renting a unit that's too small or too large. Utilize our online sizing guide or contact us for personalized recommendations.
  • Inventory Your Belongings: Create a detailed list of items you plan to store. This helps with organization during packing and retrieval, and can even be beneficial for insurance purposes.

Packing Your Portable Storage Unit Like a Pro

  • Heavy on the Bottom, Light on Top: Distribute weight evenly by placing heavier items like furniture and boxes filled with books on the bottom floor. Lighter items like pillows and blankets can go on top.
  • Maximize Space: Utilize packing techniques like filling empty spaces in boxes with packing peanuts or using furniture pads to create layers. Dismantle furniture whenever possible for increased space efficiency.
  • Label Everything Clearly: Clearly label each box with its contents and room designation for easy identification during unpacking. Consider a color-coding system for different categories or rooms for even faster retrieval.
