Storage & Packing Tips
• Using the right size box for the items you are packing is important. Heavy items, such as books, should go in small boxes. Lighter items, such as bedding or towels, can go in larger boxes.
• Pack your frequently-used items last and keep them together. They should be loaded into the storage unit last so you have quick access to them.
• Take the time to organize the contents of your boxes by where they belong and label each box. It will save time and frustration in the long run.
• Also take the time to wrap and label fragile items. When stacking in a storage unit, you will want to know which boxes are fragile so you don't put something on top that will break the contents.
• Break down any furniture that you can, including the feet on chairs and couches. This will help you to use your storage space efficiently and make it easier for stacking. Don't forget to separate furniture with a sheet to avoid scratches and tears.
• Use the space in drawers and appliances to pack away your things. By using these empty spaces, you will limit the amount of packing supplies you need and maximize your space.
• When storing any gas-powered equipment (boat, lawn mower, snow mobile, snowblower, etc), make sure they are drained before storing.
• Put TVs and other electronics towards the back of your storage unit.
• Store gardening and lawn equipment inside empty trash cans.
• Photograph and/or create an inventory of all of your items you will be putting into storage. Keep the pictures and lists in a safe place away from your storage unit. Add a number to each of your boxes and include that on your inventory list.
• Leave spaces/walk ways in your storage unit for easy access.
