Examine the storage unit. It is important to examine the storage unit to see how clean it is.

That’s another sign of a bad moving and storage company. You can also get a sense of how clean a unit is just by examining the office. If the office is messy and disarray chances are their units are too.
Safely pack your valuables. If you’re looking to pack fine china or other sentimental ceramics you should pack the boxes with newspaper, bed sheets and pillows to ensure they’re packed safe and tight. You don’t want your valuables to break in transit to the Able Moving & Storage’s Washington, D.C. storage facility. Another thing to look at is the size of your box. Most boxes are made of cardboard.

Pack your valuables in the storage unit. Make sure you place your valuables safely into the Able Moving & Storage Washington, D.C. storage unit. Make sure to place the heaviest items on the bottom and the lightest up top. In order to avoid tipping, try not to stack anything higher than chest level.
