How to Pack Your Storage Unit to Stay Organized

  • Label the outside of boxes and bins. You can mark up the box or create a cheat sheet to easily reference which items are which boxes. Now, you do not have to waste time searching through different boxes.
  • Plan your storage unit layout ahead of time. Protect your valuables by storing them in the back, and keep items that you will need to access regularly up front by the door. Setting up an aisle in your storage unit can ensure you will be able to walk through your unit to get to any box you need.
  • Pack boxes and your storage unit using the same rule: heavy on the bottom, light on the top. Heavier boxes and objects can act as a foundation to stack on others safely. Do not risk damage to your belongings by leaving heavy items to pack on top.
