iStorage: Packing Supplies

Have you ever experienced the heartbreak of dishes that were broken in a move because they weren't packed properly? Moving can be stressful enough without the stress that comes as a result of scratched and broken furniture or other damaged items. iStorage wants to make storing your items as easy as possible and offers a variety of packing materials to keep stress to a minimum.

Packing Supplies Available at Most iStorage Locations

Packing tape - plastic tape with widths from 1.5 inches (3.81 cm) to 2 inches (5.08 cm)

Mattress covers - keep mattresses clean and protected from moisture and dust during storage.

Stretch wrap - a stretchable plastic film that is wrapped around items to keep them tightly bound. We recommend using it to bundle smaller items.

Foam wrap - provides extra cushioning to protect electronics, dishes, and other fragile items from breakage.

Bubble wrap - plastic packing material with hundreds of tiny "air cushions" or bubbles that's used for storing large and small fragile items.

Packing paper - prevents scratching on fragile items during storage and shipping and is made from 100% biodegradable and recyclable newsprint.

Packing peanuts -  fill extra space in boxes to keep fragile items like dishware, collectibles, and glassware from shifting while moving, storing or shipping.

Permanent marker – used to label packing boxes with contents. iStorage recommends marking boxes "fragile" and "this side up" when appropriate.
