Taping Boxes for Storage

If you want your belongings to stay safe and secure while they are stored in a storage facility in Capitola, you will need to pack them properly. Watch this video clip if you would like to learn about the process of taping boxes for storage.

How to Tape Moving Boxes

Storage boxes are a must when it comes to moving to a new home or keeping some of your belongings in a storage unit rental. It is important to fill your boxes to the top in order to keep your items safe and prevent boxes from crushing each other or caving in over time. Start by folding the smaller bottom flaps in and then the larger flaps over them, then tape the large seam that is created. After that, tape the two smaller seams closed and repeat the process on the top of the box. For heavier loads, add reinforcement tape in an “X” shape across the top and bottom.
