3 Tips to Help You Pack Your Storage Unit & Get the Most Out of It

1. Use all of your storage space, and plan the layout ahead. 

Make the most of the storage unit you paid for. As soon as you know what storage unit you are renting and what items you will be storing, you can start planning your layout. Leave an aisle down the center, so you can access items in the back as well as on the sides of the storage unit. We highly recommend placing valuable and sentimental items toward the back—hidden away. On the other hand, store items that you think you will access frequently close to the front.

2. Think about the weight of your items when packing.

Always pack heavy items on the bottom and lighter items on the top to avoid damage. Make sure boxes are full and sturdy before stacking other boxes on top. If you are in need of new boxes, stop into our storage office to stock up. In addition to boxes, we sell packing tape, box cutters, moisture absorbers, packing kits, and more.

3. Label boxes and bins you cannot see into.

Do not waste time rummaging through boxes to search for specific items. Label your boxes with the contents, or even just the room in the house/office it belongs, to help yourself in the future. If you are having movers help you bring your belongings into your new space, this step also streamlines their process.
