    Packing Tape

    Before you select your boxes, note that you will need packing tape to put them together. Packing tape is available in different size rolls – we recommend the larger of the two rolls because the difference in price is very little and you will likely use all the tape.

    One 60-yard roll will tape:

    • 12 - 14 small boxes
    • 10 - 12 medium boxes
    • 8 - 10 large or extra large boxes
  • Packing Tape Sold at Life Storage

    Tip: Tape like a pro

    Review the following recommended taping method to help ensure secure seams while helping to prevent crushing:

    • 1. Fold in the shorter flaps first
    • 2. Fold in long flaps and secure with three strips of tape down the center
    • 3. Place two final strips perpendicular about three inches from the box edge
  • Bubble Pack Sold at Life Storage

    Tip: Dishes and Fragile Items

    Be sure to wrap your dishes and fragile items carefully to protect them during moving and storage. We have everything you need including:

    • Bubble Pack – Superior protection for fragile items
    • Dish Packs and Glass Packs
    • Newsprint wrapping paper
    • Labels for marking boxes
  • Move and store safely at Life Storage

    Tip: Choosing the Right Boxes

    When packing boxes for storage, do not use boxes from supermarkets, liquor stores or other food and beverage retail outlets. Food odors remain in the cardboard and can attract pests and rodents into the storage space. We want to do everything we can to protect your belongings and those of your storage neighbors.

    As boxes age, they become weaker in the walls. Be sure that your boxes are strong and can stand up to the pressure of stacking one on top of another. During your move and during storage, boxes that collapse can make a terrible mess!
