Easy Tips for Packing Your Storage Unit Efficiently

When you are renting self storage, you want the biggest bang for your buck. You are storing precious memorabilia and items that you rely on, so you want to make sure your storage unit is ideal for protecting its contents. Appletree Storage experts can help match you to a storage unit that will best fit your items and budget. We also offer storage resources, like supplies and tips for packing your storage unit, for an easier storage experience!

Tips & Tricks for Packing Up a Storage Unit

  • Plan how your boxes will be laid out in storage. This will not only help you choose the right size storage unit, but it will also keep you organized. Create an aisle so you can still easily access items in the back, and arrange your items with the ones you will access most frequently at the front.
  • Be mindful of your boxes’ weights. A light box will be crushed under too much weight, risking damage to both the box and the items inside. Always keep your lighter boxes on top, and use heavier boxes and objects as your base to pile up. Shelving units can help balance out the weights of your boxes as well.
  • Label bins and boxes well. Include the room of the house/building they belong in (kitchen, master bedroom, etc.) as well as a list of the contents of the box for quick unpacking. You can reference your list to find specific items without pulling open each box.
