Forms

We suggest completing a packing inventory, for your personal records. The 'Storage Form' is placed over the locks/zips, this is affixed so that the containers cannot be opened without damaging the form. This shows that anything stored with Saigon Storage is not manipulated or tampered with.

Packing Tips

  • Use strong, stackable boxes & containers.
  • Fill boxes completely to keep them from collapsing & damaging belongings.
  • Pack books & heavy items in small boxes for easier lifting.
  • Label each box on several sides & indicate if it is fragile & what room it should go in. Saigon Storage has suitable labels available.
  • Disassemble furniture for easier moving & storage.
  • All stored items should be clean of food stains & particles.
  • Save room by using towels & blankets to wrap fragile items.
  • Use wardrobe boxes to hang clothing; remember to fill the boxes with pillows or other light items.
  • Protect furniture with shrink-wrap & blankets or pads to avoid damage.
  • Bedding & Linens: Use your dresser drawers when possible to store blankets, pillows & sheets.
  • Chests of DrawersTake advantage of drawers for packing light items such as photos & clocks. If the items are fragile, use towels or other padding to protect them.
  • China & Glassware: Plates should be wrapped individually & stacked on edge. Always have plenty of cushioning below & above all glassware. Glasses should be wrapped individually with cushioning & put on the top of  boxes with more cushioning. Firmly pack boxes so they will not be crushed.
  • Clothing: Hang clothing whenever possible, wardrobe boxes.
  • Fragile Items: Store safely in dresser drawers surrounded by blankets.
  • Lamp Shades: Use clean packing paper to wrap each lamp shade. 
  • Mirrors:  Always stand mirrors on edge. It’s best if you can crate them, or pack them individually with strong cardboard & mark as fragile.
  • Tables: Remove legs when possible & wrap separately to prevent possible damage & save space. Tape the hardware to the table, so it's not misplaced.
  • Tools: Don’t put too many tools in one box, wipe with a slightly oily rag to prevent rusting. Long handled tools should be cleaned, oiled & tied together.
