Moving and Storage Tips

Plan ahead

 Start planning and organizing your move and storage needs well in advance. This will give you plenty of time to research storage options, gather supplies, and book moving services if needed. Call up a local mover such as Cactus Moving to get that set up at the same as your storage unit.

 Choose the right storage facility in Calgary

Consider your needs and budget when choosing a storage unit. You can opt for traditional self-storage units, portable storage containers, or storage lockers. Choose an option that is convenient for you and offers the right level of security and access.  Check out Bow City Storage’s wide selection of storage unit sizes.

Pack carefully

Proper packing is essential to keep your belongings safe during transportation and storage. Use sturdy boxes, packing paper, bubble wrap, and packing tape to ensure your items are protected. Label boxes clearly to make unpacking easier.  Bow City Storage offers a wide selection of packing supplies.

 Optimize storage unit space

Make the most of your storage space by disassembling furniture, stacking boxes, and using all available space in your storage unit. Consider using shelving or pallets to keep items off the ground.

Protect your items

Cover furniture and delicate items with protective blankets or plastic wrap to prevent damage from dust and moisture. Store fragile items separately and mark boxes containing delicate items as "fragile."

Store items properly

Store items in a way that maximizes space and prevents damage. Use shelving, racks, and other storage solutions to keep your items organized and easy to access.

Keep important items with you

Keep important items like passports, IDs, and important documents with you during the move and storage process to avoid losing them.
