Packing for Your Storage Unit

Packing up your items for storage can be a pain to deal with, but here are a few basic reminders that will save you headaches in the long run as your packing:

Try to use boxes that are a uniform size, they’re easier to stack (remember; keep the heavy ones on the bottom and the light ones on top). Leave small walkways between the boxes and furniture in your storage unit so you can easily get to the items you want without having to move anything around. If you’re storing a lot of packing boxes in your unit, try to fill them to the top, even if it’s just with padding and old, crumpled newspapers. Boxes that are only half-filled tend to collapse if anything’s placed on them.

If you’re putting any metal objects into storage – like lawnmowers or file cabinets – it’s best to treat them with rust protector first, or at least wipe them down with an oily rag. Most public storage facilities have ample security. However, it’s still wise to take a few precautions of your own against theft. Pack your storage unit so that your most valuable items are at the back, and purchase a high quality padlock to put on the door.
