If you been putting off packing before moving into your storage unit, let us help you get started with three easy tips on how to pack a storage unit to stay organized. Let Street Smart Storage walk you through the entire storage process and make renting easy. Our whole blog is full of tricks to make finding storage as smooth as possible. Follow our tips below on how to pack your storage unit efficiently to get the most out of your space!
How do you begin laying out your storage unit? Think about which items you will need to grab from your storage unit frequently, and place them up front by the door. Similarly, items that do not get used frequently or are valuable and need additional security should be placed in the far corners. If you create an aisle down the center of your storage unit, you will have easy access to boxes on any wall.
You never have to worry about being unprepared when storing at Street Smart Storage. Each of our storage offices sell boxes, packing tape, locks, and other packing supplies on-site in our offices! Ask the storage experts there about the best supplies for packing up furniture and breakables.
Something as simple as marking “winter clothing” will be a huge help later when you are searching for a specific item and do not want to rummage through all your boxes to find it. You can take it a step farther, also marking the room of the house that would normally hold those items (kitchen, garage, etc.), so when you go to unload those boxes later, people helping you move will know where in your house to put them.
