Do you have much experience packing things into a storage unit? Do you often find yourself looking like the guy in the picture? Well that"s why we"re here to help. There are a few tips, tricks, and ideas to help you.
Think about the size of the unit before you rent one, to determine if
all of your stuff will fit in it. There are some nice storage unit size
guides on the internet to help you know if your stuff will fit or not.
Next pack all your stuff up neatly in an organized fashion. This will
save you so much headache down the road. To do this you will need to get
some packing material and some markers. Bubble wrap works well for
fragile items, also newspapers, blankets, and boxes will be necessary.
To help with your organization of your boxes for later unpacking, try to
label all your items.
Once you arrive at the storage facility and find your unit. Do a quick
inspection, depending on the location and weather conditions you may
want to put down some pallets or tarps on the floor of the unit.
Humidity and condensation could potentially harm your items. Once you
start moving your items into the unit, place the heavier and bigger
appliances and furniture on the floor of the unit, as you start to stack
boxes remember to face the labels toward the door of the storage unit,
or toward an isle. It"s smart to keep an isle way in case you ever need
to access the rear of the unit. Weird shaped items fit well toward the
ceiling of the storage unit.
