AAA Self Storage goes the extra mile for you. Boxes, locks, bubble-wrap, tape, mattress covers and more are all conveniently available for purchase at our self storage facilities. This makes moving, packing and storing your valued possessions as safe and convenient as possible.

We also offer a free moving truck for new Lufkin storage customers moving into one of our Lufkin or Diboll mini storage locations.

Boxes
All AAA Self Storage boxes have double-walled construction and are UPS approved. Ask the Store Manager which boxes are best for the items you are moving and packing. We offer standard-sized boxes and specialty boxes for items such as TVs, VCRs, and pictures.

Locks
AAA Self Storage offers disc locks and traditional pad locks. Disc locks are case-hardened, making them strike and pick proof.

Bubble Wrap
When moving and storing fragile items, cushioning should be a primary concern. AAA Self Storage Lufkin sells many different types of cushioning products, such as bubble wrap, packing paper and foam peanuts.

Tape
Our Store Managers can help you estimate how much tape you need for the number of boxes you'll be packing. For your convenience we also have tape that is pre-labeled.


Self Storage Packing Tips

TIP #1 – DEVELOP A STORAGE PLAN

Developing a storage plan can make packing and moving a breeze.  Planning ahead of time can save you time and unwanted stress on moving day.

TIP #2 – CREATE MOVING AND STORAGE CHECKLIST

Creating a moving and storage checklist will help you keep track of what you retain or discard.  Moving day can be a little overwhelming, so we recommend that you keep a record of which items are moving and which items will be stored.   

TIP #3 – GET HELP

Depending on what you are packing and moving, consider getting help from friends, family or professional movers. 

TIP #4 – PREPARE MOVING SUPPLIES

When packing for storage or a move, it is essential to have the necessary moving supplies. Preparation with the right supplies can dramatically expedite the packing and moving. 

TIP #5 – PACK ONE ROOM AT A TIME

Assign rooms you want pack first, preferably start with one room (small) then move on to the larger rooms.

TIP #6 – DON’T OVERLOAD BOXES

Don’t overload boxes with too many items (keep them “lift-friendly”).

TIP #7 – LABEL EACH BOX

Before sealing up your moving box, label each so you will know the contents when unpacking and sorting.

TIP #8 - ALWAYS USE PROTECTIVE MOVING GEAR

When moving your boxes or furniture, it is wise to wear back braces for back protection and gloves for hand protection.

TIP #9 – THROW AWAY UNWANTED ITEMS

Make sure to discard all unwanted items.  Break-down all excess cardboard boxes and prepare any trash or discarded items for local bulk pick-up.

TIP #10 - SELECTING THE RIGHT SIZE BOX!

Limit your storage box selection to two or three well constructed sizes that can be
closed, sealed and stacked. Large boxes should be double ply constructed.

TIP #11 – MAKE PACKING & MOVING AND STORAGE FUN!

Packing, moving and storing doesn’t have to be a hassle.  With strategic planning, proper help and some good music, packing, moving and storing can be fun.
