Imagining a World without Packing Supplies

By Storbox Self-Storage on January 28, 2013 - Comments off

At Storbox, we offer clean and well-maintained storage units for both personal and business needs. But what some may forget is that high quality and dependable packing and storage supplies play a vital role in storing any and all items. To help you remember the value of these supplies, we journey into a nightmarish (but thankfully fictitious) world devoid of packing supplies …

(cue other-worldly music)

In this frightening alternate reality, boxes have never been invented. Cardboard is a concept beyond the grasp of human thought. Instead, items are not packed into convenient boxes, but rather transported by the armful and piled on top of one another inside storage units. Countless valuables are lost forever as they are dropped, crushed by the weight of other items, or simply disappear forever beneath the massive amounts of items piled into a storage unit. Those who try to find their stored items must wade through mounds of stored items, devoting entire weekends to finding something as simple as a lost shoe! Read the rest »



Moving into Storbox: Your Car vs. Moving Trucks, the Showdown

By Storbox Self-Storage on January 21, 2013 - Comments off

At Storbox, we do not only provide safe and secure storage units for our customers, we also provide a free moving truck rental. What more can you ask for? (For those of you who would like to ask for free self-storage, we’d like to emphasize that that was a rhetorical question.)

Some people, however, may not want to use a moving truck when transferring their items to our facility. Rather, they may prefer to use their own vehicle. But moving trucks are the best vehicle for transporting a shipment, especially when there is a large amount of items to be moved. This is easily seen when compared to the average car.

Staying Injury Free During Your Move

At Storbox, we understand that the process of packing, moving, and storing your items can be a complicated process, but nothing can make it more difficult, or painful, than getting injured while doing it. To make your move as simple and uncomplicated as possible, it is important to not only take into account the most efficient ways to pack and store your items, but how to move them in a safe and proper manner.

  • Watch Your Back – While lifting and carrying your boxes, even a short distance, it is important to lift with your legs, not your back. When lifting an item, bend your knees and keep your back straight to lower to the ground, then lift with your legs while keeping your back straight and stomach muscles tight. DO NOT bend over and lift with your back.
  • Clear a Path – Do not walk across a cluttered floor while carrying items; you will most likely not be able to see everything in your way. This can easily lead to a trip and fall, which will not only damage your items, but lead to injuries. Read the rest »
