Tips for Success When Packing Your Storage Unit

  1. Plan a layout for all your items inside the storage unit. Leave enough space in the center an aisle to let yourself have easy access to all of your boxes, whether they are in the front or back. Items closer to the front should be ones you plan on swapping in or out frequently. Keep valuable items toward the back.
  2. Pack your boxes intentionally. You do not want to make your boxes too heavy (for lifting and box structure purposes), but you still want to make sure each box is filled (to avoid breaking if something is stacked on top of it). If you do stack your boxes, use heavier, larger ones as a base, and put your lightest ones at the top.
  3. Label boxes as you pack up. Labels will help you keep track of which items are inside which box without needing to open them. You can also use labels to organize your storage unit by category.
