Self Storage Austin: A Moving Day Supplies Checklist

Affordable Boat Storage in Austin


Pack and unpack painlessly. And call Lone Star Self Storage in South Austin to help stow the “leftovers.”

You’re starting to pack up your things in anticipation of next move. As you do this, it would also be a good idea to put together all the supplies you’ll need to help you make the actual transition. And keep in mind that Lone Star Self-Storage in Austin can take care of your temporary excess storage needs.

No matter where you’re planning to go next, you will absolutely need:

  • boxes
  • packing tape
  • scissors (and if possible, a box cutter)
  • blankets
  • bubble wrap
  • small plastic bags
  • markers
  • labels

Where boxes are concerned,  you may be tempted to get them from your local grocery store. While these can work well, you aren’t guaranteed of their reliability. If you purchase them from a reputable moving company like U-Haul or from a specialty store, you can be assured that the boxes will be able to withstand the rigors of moving.

After you’ve gotten these eight supply essentials, also try to get the following:

Old newspapers

Use them to wrap your fragile things and to provide cushioning for the corners of your moving boxes.

Large plastic garbage bags

They’re just the thing to use when packing pillows, bedding, towels and clothes.

A tool belt with tools

Keep a tool belt around your waist with a hammer, screwdrivers, a roll of packing tape and whatever else you be using on moving day. It will save you the frustration of having to look for everything.

A 3-ring binder

Use this as a space to store important documents such as your moving estimate, your movers’ contact information, bills, bank statements and  stray photographs.

A United States Postal Service mover’s guide

This little booklet has information on how to change your address as well as lots of handy tips to help make the relocation process go a lot more smoothly.

A storage unit from Lone Star Self-Storage could also be a useful to you as you prepare for the big day. You can use the extra room to put away those things you won’t need right away and lighten your load to boot.  Don’t get caught last-minute with nowhere to put your belongings.  Call Austin’s storage experts today!
