Moving Tips

We have varying sizes of storage units to accommodate those who are only looking to store a few pieces of furniture or larger storage units for those who have a garage full of items that need to be stowed away.

S and R Storage, La Pine, Oregon 97739

Packing Your Items

  • Make up an inventory of your stored items and keep it in a safe place at home or in a safe deposit box.
  • Completely fill each box with your heaviest items on the bottom and lighter items on top.
  • Store heavy items in smaller boxes to make for easy lifting.
  • Store china and breakables in stronger cardboard and plastic boxes, packing with bubble wrap or tissue paper.
  • Label all boxes for easy identification.
  • List contents of boxes on all four sides, number the boxes, seal with masking tape or glued paper tape.
  • Try to keep your boxes in uniform sizes. They are much easier to stack that way.
  • Dishes and glasses should be wrapped in packing paper and placed in dish pack boxes. Mark these as "FRAGILE" and stack these on top.
  • Pictures and mirrors should be wrapped in mirror crates marked "FRAGILE" and stacked on end.
  • Furniture with drawers can be utilized as storage places for knickknacks, china, silverware and small items. Wrap in tablecloths, towels or blankets to prevent breakage.
  • Larger appliances make excellent "packing cases" for blankets, towels, tablecloths and clothes.
  • Make sure that refrigerators and freezers are fully defrosted to prevent water damage and, where possible, leave the doors open to allow ventilation.
  • Tables with removable legs should be "broken down" to save space.
  • Sofas and loveseats can be stored on end to save floor space. Always place a protective waterproof cover under the end on the floor. Cushions should be wrapped in plastic and placed on top.
  • Cover all furniture with dust sheets and remember to wrap table and chair legs to avoid scratching.
  • Shovels, hoes, rakes, and hoses can be stored together in empty trash cans. Stack extra cans inside one another.
  • Drain all gas and oil from engines in lawnmowers, tillers, etc. It is against the law to store materials that are hazardous or combustible such as gasoline, solvents, paint, etc.
  • Clean all garden furniture before storing.

Loading Your Storage Space

  • Make a list of what you intend to store, especially larger or unusual shaped items. This will help you get the best possible quote and enough packing materials.
  • Plan your storage space. Items you might need to access often should be placed in the front. Allow for walkways.
  • Purchase a high-quality padlock to secure your unit. If there will be more than one person accessing the unit, consider a combination padlock.
  • Place your storage items on 2" x 4" boards or Visqueen to guard against dampness. Any concrete floor may become cold and damp.
  • Leave a small space between the wall and your storage items to allow for ventilation.
  • Allow large and heavy items to form the base of the storage room with lighter items at the top.
  • Pack your boxes and other items as close together as possible to avoid moisture accumulating between them.
  • Stack lighter boxes on top of heavier boxes.
  • If you stand mattresses on end, be sure to "prop" them up to stand straight or they may bend out of shape.
  • Calculate the value of what you have to store and arrange adequate insurance coverage.
