Top Packing Tips: Storage Supplies and Preparation

Are you looking for a reliable and secure storage facility in the Virginia Beach area? Ocean Storage has five locations along Coastal Virginia equipped with drive-up and temperature-controlled storage units in a variety of sizes. Find your storage solution and gather all the necessary storage supplies here!

When you start packing up for storage, follow these helpful tips for easier preparation.

1. Buy New Boxes and Stock Up on Supplies

Do not wait to start gathering boxes. You will need a lot of them, and that is not a stress you should have to deal with at the time of packing. Stay away from asking grocery stores for their extra boxes. Since they were holding food, the boxes will likely attract bugs and other pests.

For new boxes, come to our office. Ocean Storage sells storage supplies on-site at each of our locations. For the month of October, a percentage of these sales will go to Susan. G. Komen for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 

2. Reserve Your Storage and Movers in Advance

Make sure all your services are available on the day you wish to move into your storage unit. Each of our locations lets you reserve a storage unit up to two weeks in advance. You should try to reserve your storage as soon as you are able to. Otherwise you might miss out on the size or amenities you need. Once you know what day you will be storing/moving, you should contact your movers and moving vehicle rental company.

Your Storage and Storage Supplies Destination

Ocean Storage has five locations: Laskin Road Virginia Beach, Northampton Boulevard Virginia Beach, Yorktown VA, Norfolk VA, Battlefield Boulevard. Whether you need to store short-term or long-term, we have leasing options and a range of storage unit sizes to fulfill your needs. Find the location closest to you to get started!
