3 Tips for Success When You Pack Your Storage Unit

  1. Be methodical about planning a layout. Items you plan on accessing more frequently should be up by the door, and valuable items should be tucked away in the back of the storage unit. The best way to ensure you have easily access to all of your boxes is to leave room for a center aisle for walking and moving items.
  2. Pack with sturdy boxes and quality storage supplies. We sell packing supplies in our South Boulevard office because we want our tenants to have everything they need. You can purchase boxes, bubble wrap, and more on-site!
  3. For easy searching later, label boxes you cannot see into. Figure out a system that works best for you, whether that is writing on the box, creating a cheat sheet, or another way. It will be a lot simpler to find a specific tool later when you know you only need to find the box labeled “garage tools” instead of rummaging through all the boxes with garage-type items.
