Choosing the Right Tools and Accessories for Your Move

The tools and accessories that Public Storage offers each have different purposes and help improve different parts of the moving process. Get a better idea of how each tool and accessory is right for you during various aspects of your move:

  • Utility cutters can easily help with opening boxes, cutting tape and slicing through other packaging materials used to secure household items.
  • Markers are the perfect solution to writing clearly on boxes. They can help you inform movers about what box should go where and what is fragile, amongst other moving-related instructions.
  • Damp Check moisture absorbers help control the amount of moisture in your storage unit to prevent mildew from developing on your household items during storage.
  • Forearm forklifts are ideal for heavy lifting and reducing strain. They can make whatever you’re lifting feel almost 66% lighter.
  • Ratchet tie-downs help in securing loose items during a move for added security when holding heavier belongings into place.
  • Stretch cords help attach items to vehicles and other means of transportation while keeping items in place.
  • Tie-down rope is ideal for tying items down, while providing a good gripping surface and the ability to tie secure knots, creating greater stability during transport.
  • Reusable shopping bags help with carrying any loose items that weren’t boxed during the moving process or to carry items that you will need most readily once the move is over.

How do you use ratchet straps?

Ratchet straps are typically used to secure large, heavy objects and loads to the inside of a moving van or the bed of a truck. The ratchet head can be cranked to increase the tension on the straps. These straps also come in handy to secure heavy items to a dolly or hand truck for greater safety and stability during the loading and unloading phases of your move.

How do Forearm Forklift straps work?

Forearm forklift straps work by allowing the user to carry the weight of the item closer to their body which reduces the stress and strain on the back. These straps rely on leverage to redistribute the weight of the object being lifted, thereby lightening the load.
