How to Pack Your Storage Unit

  • Think about the layout of your items and boxes in the storage unit. When you go to pick up belongings from your storage unit later, you will want to be able to access items in all corners of the unit. Create an aisle in the center of your storage unit to leave space so you can walk to the back and get to all of your boxes. For efficiency’s sake, leave items toward the front by the roll-up door if you plan to swap them out frequently.
  • When stacking boxes, put the heaviest on the bottom and lightest on the top. You do not want to accidentally crush fragile items by stacking boxes in the wrong order. Shelves can help with additional organization. 
  • Take the time to label bins and boxes of which you cannot see the contents. As you go to look for specific items later, you will be grateful for your labels. This way, you do not have to look all around your storage unit to find them and you can quickly filter through your boxes.
