Prepare Items for Warehouse Storage by Cleaning Them First

While most storage with Clinton’s Transfer & Storage, Inc. is short term, there are steps for long-term storage. The first step is to wash everything that will be going into the storage unit. This includes clothing, furniture, appliances, etc. By making sure you properly clean everything, it decreases chances of mold and mildew. It also cuts down on potential smells that could attract bugs and rodents. Our suggestions are to use antibacterial cleaners, and running a bleach cycle through your washing machine and/or dishwasher.


Inventory and Label Everything as You Prepare Items for Warehouse Storage

Understand that the items will not be readily available. Do not pack any items you may need before the final move. The last thing you want is to forget you have something, and buy a duplicate. Make sure you take detailed notes of what is going into your unit. Some suggestions to make it easier for you are:

  • Photos of serial numbers, model numbers, and brand logos, when applicable
  • Number each box, and list what is in each box
  • A brief description of the item, including if there is any damage pre-move
  • For expensive items, estimate their relative monetary value
