  1. Pack your Container Systematically.

Don’t just throw everything in, it’ll it so much harder to find things when you need them. Moreover, the more effectively you pack the unit the best value for money you’ll be getting as you’ll ensure you’re using every inch of the unit.

Therefore, it’s well worth investing the time to pack your items in your storage unit systematically. So when packing your storage unit:

  • Put the items that you will need access to, near the front of the unit, making them easy to grab quickly when you need them.
  • Organize boxes and bins by room or use and label every box so you know what the box is for/contains.
  • Itemize what is in each box and keep a copy of that taped to the outside so that you will know what the box contains quickly without having to riffle through the box.
  • Pack lighter boxes on top of heavier boxes to reduce the chance that someone will be harmed or things will be damaged if they topple over.
  • Make sure you are able to access all your items easily and safely without having to climb over or on top of boxes, furniture which could potentially can cause injury.
  1. Make a Map of Your Self Storage Unit.

By making a map of your unit and what you have stored where in the container you will make it easy to get at what you need quickly. This map will come in handy especially when you are moving, selling your home or renovating and will need fast access to your items often.

Keep a copy of your map inside your storage unit so that you won’t lose it and it is handily available, so you can be in and out of your unit swiftly.

  1. Make the Most of Your Storage Unit.
