How to Pack Your Storage Unit

  1. Plan the layout of your storage unit ahead of time. Make sure you rent a storage unit large enough to leave some wiggle room. This will give you enough space to add an aisle that will let you access items on all sides of your unit. From there, consider placing valuable objects toward the back and boxes you will need to access more frequently in the front.
  2. Label boxes and bins to easily find specific items later. It can be as simple as marking the box as “pots & pans” or “tools.” Just give yourself some reference of what is inside, so later, you do not have to rummage through boxes when you need certain objects.
  3. In packing boxes and your storage unit, pack heavier objects on the bottom. They make the best foundation for stacking other items on top, and lighter objects will be protected from getting crushed.
