Tips to Help You Pack Your Storage Unit 

  • Create a plan for the layout for your storage unit. You want your valuable items as secure as possible, and keeping them in the very back of your storage unit can help you achieve that. Boxes that you will need to access frequently should stay up front by the door, so you use your storage efficiently. Including an aisle in your storage unit will also help you be able to access all the items you need to.
  • When you pack up your boxes and start stacking them, use the “heavy on the bottom, light on the top” rule. Heavier boxes will create a strong foundation for other boxes and should be made up of ones that will not break open or cave in when others are on top of them. The same goes for packing boxes—keep light objects on the top.
  • Make labels for your boxes. Mark them with the main items inside as well as room of the house they would belong in (bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, shed, etc.). This will save you the time of rummaging through your boxes to find specific items.
