Making the Most of Your Storage Unit

Packing things for storage is really no different than packing them for a big move. There are a few things you should know before you pack your things away for an extended period of time, so be sure to read our tips on what to do!

Time is everything – start packing several cartons each day, a few weeks prior to your move. Be sure that the items you pack won’t be needed before your move, of course. By pacing yourself, you’ll be more organized and the job won’t be so overwhelming.

Pack on a room-by-room basis and do one area of the room at a time. It’s best not to mix items from different rooms in one box. To prevent small items from being lost or mistakenly thrown out with the packing paper, wrap miniature knickknacks and other small items in brightly-colored tissue paper before placing them in the box.

On the top and front of each carton, write a general description of the contents and indicate the room from which it came (or which it will go into in your new home). Use different colored dot stickers for each box; then, at your new house, hang a balloon of a corresponding color outside the room where you want the color-coded boxes to be delivered.
