Choosing the Right Packing Supplies


July 29th, 2020

Lock Box Self Storage carries packing and moving supplies for every purpose. 

We have you covered when moving, downsizing, minimizing, or shipping.  Our knowledgeable staff will help you find the right supplies when packing and storing household or business items.  Our quality packing materials will help keep the items your storing safe.

Moving Boxes & Kits

With a strong and sturdy cardboard box, you can store and protect the majority of your belongings, from electronics, dishes, books, and clothes.  The key is to use the right type and size of the box given the types of items that will be stored in it.  A cardboard box will hold your plates and glassware, but a glass moving kit or dish kit are specifically built with dividers to separate and protect individual breakables.  A wardrobe box comes equipped with a hanger bar that lets you move and store your clothes right from the closet into the box and back into the closet again without having to fold everything.

Box Products:
  • Cardboard Boxes Various Sized
  • Moving Kits
  • Glass & Dish Packing Kits

Inside Packing Products

Fill materials are what will prevent your belongings from moving around and potentially breaking during storage or transit.  Packing paper, bubble wrap, and foam packing peanuts are great for filling nooks and crannies in your boxes.  Filling the open spaces in the boxes keeps things from shifting and causing damage.

Inside Packing Products:
  • Packing Paper
  • Foam Peanuts
  • Bubble Wrap

Wrapping and Tape Materials

Once your box is filled, the only thing left to do is seal up your boxes tightly.  Packing tape should be used to seal the top and especially the bottom of all your boxes.  This will prevent the bottom and the top of the boxes from coming open.  If you would like an additional layer of protection from dust, shrink-wrapping your stack of boxes will keep them clean. 

Large items like furniture and mattress can be protected with moving blankets, furniture covers, and mattress covers.  These will help repel dirt, and protect from scratches. 

Sealing Products:
  • Tape & Tape Guns
  • Shrink Wrap
  • Mattress and Furniture Covers
