Albany Self Storage

  • The most important and useful tip we can give you, is to be prepared. Gather all your materials and supplies before you start: packing materials, markers, furniture covers, boxes, tape, etc. And don't forget, Glenmont Self Storage (just outside Albany NY) sells everything you might need!

  • Do not to store anything combustible (such as chemicals  or paint) or perishable (such as food that is not permanently sealed).

  • Use the "Triple L" in packing and storing:
    Label, Label, Label! Mark every box, and keep a written inventory as you pack.

  • Use the correct box. Use large boxes for light items (linens, pillows, lamps) and smaller boxes for all heavier items (books, CDs).

  • Use your dresser and cabinet drawers to hold delicate items. Wrap them in newspaper or bubble wrap that you can purchse here at Glenmont Self Storage.

  • Be careful. Pack small things carefully into boxes with appropriate packing materials. Don't toss things into garbage bags. Boxes are sturdier and stack well, and take up less space than garbage bags. Stuffed garbage bags risk damage from knocks and bumps, and also mildew due to lack of ventilation.

  • Don’t overload boxes. Packed boxes should only weigh as much as you can lift without straining.

  • This side up. If you combine different weights of items in one box, always put the heavier items on the bottom, marking the box with “this side up.”

  • Tape everything. Make sure all your boxes are securely sealed with packing tape, with the tops flat which make it easier to stack them.

  • Hang clothing. Use wardrobe boxes to hang clothing, draperies and other fabrics that need to be kept crease-free.

  • When storing lawn and garden equipment, drain all water and fluids before storing in order to avoid corrosive damage to your items.

  • Disassemble bed frames and tie them together with tape or twine. Use small plastic bags to hold screws and bolts. Tape them to the frame that they belong to so you don't lose them.

  • Last but not least, Respect your breakables. Wrap dishes and glassware and anything breakable individually, and be sure to pad the box with packing paper and/or bubble wrap.
