What You Need When Planning For Storage

Now that you have decided a Toronto storage unit from Valet Storage is for you, it is time to prepare for when the truck comes.

Here is what you will need when planning for storage:

Boxes and wrapping materialsplanning for storage

One of the biggest pains of putting items into a Toronto storage unit is packing them up but there no way around having to do it unfortunately. The good news is that when planning for storage we will supply you with everything you need in terms of packing materials. Just let us know and we will make sure you get it.

If you are going with your own boxes, consider getting ones that are all the same size, this will make stacking them easier which will keep your storage unit looking as neat as possible for when you need to visit it.


We at Valet Storage have things set up so that you never have to visit your storage locker if you don’t want to but many people still go to their units to get things on their own. If you are going to be doing that, it is a good idea to have a good labeling system set up.

Label everything and it will be a cinch to find something when you need it. Be specific as well. If you have multiple boxes of dishes for example, write which dishes are in which box and when you need some of them you will know right where they are.

Inventory everything

Making up an inventory list is a good way to keep track of what has already been boxed up and what is still waiting to be. It is a simple thing but can take a lot of headaches out of the equation.

Now that you have finished planning for storage and are ready for Valet Storage all you have to do is give us a call. We will come to your home and professionally move everything to your Toronto storage unit for you.

Once there we will catalog your boxes and items and you will be able to access this list on our website. Then, when it is time to have something back, all you have to do is let us know and we will bring it straight to you. Even if you have moved.
