Tricks for Packing Up a Storage Unit Like a Pro

Have you already found your storage? Then it is time to start preparing your items for their stay at Stored Away Self Storage. We offer tips for packing up your storage unit to make the most of your rental space. For more expert advice, come see our staff on Highway 172 during office hours with any questions you come across in the rental process. Get started with Stored Away Self Storage!

3 Tips for Packing Your Storage Unit

  1. Map out a layout for your storage unit. Keep valuables in the back and items you wish to access frequently up front by the door. We always recommend leaving space for an aisle in the center of your unit, so you have room to get to all of your items and move boxes around if need be.
  2. Purchase quality storage supplies. Stored Away Self Storage sells packing supplies in our office. Stock up on boxes, bubble wrap, locks, and more before you start packing up your items. Make sure the boxes and bins you have already are sturdy and can safely be packed away for a few months.
  3. Label wherever necessary. If you cannot see the contents of a box or bin, write a quick note to remind yourself later, like “DVDs and CDs” or “winter clothes.” Then when you are looking for a specific item later, you can just reference your label instead of pulling open every box.
