Storage Tips 101: How To Store Fragile Items

Renting a temperature and humidity-controlled self-storage unit is one of the best ways to store fragile items and keepsakes. While you may attempt to keep fragile belongings in your home or workplace — like glassware, porcelain figurines, or your favorite piece of wedding china — your items are at a higher risk of breaking or damaging when they are not stored properly. Avoid damaging precious valuables and stick with Armored Self Storage to learn the most efficient ways to store fragile items in a self-storage unit in Easton or Queenstown, MD. Our home storage facility in Easton features over 120,000 square feet of clean and well-lit climate-controlled self-storage units with state-of-the-art security and available insurance premiums through StorSmart Insurance.

Use the Right Packing Supplies

Flimsy boxes from your local grocery store are not your friend when storing fragile items. Instead, use sturdy packing supplies designed to protect delicate items from harm, including:

  • Moving Boxes
  • Packing tape
  • Bubble wrap
  • Mirror boxes
  • Packing paper

Anthony Parkinson

Top of the line self storage. I can't believe I wrote that but it is very nice and clean. Excellent professional staff and the sign up and payment was all done by phone and computer after showing me the space available. They also have one in Easton which I haven't been in but I'm sure is every bit as good.
