3 Tips to Help You Pack Your Storage Unit

So you rented your storage unit, but now what? It is always best to take an organized approach when it comes to packing. You want your items as secure as possible without wasting precious space. Check out Storage Plus Hudson’s top tips to pack your storage unit efficiently!

3 Tips for Packing Your Storage Unit

  1. Plan the layout of your storage unit ahead of time. We recommend leaving space down the center of your storage unit for an aisle. This will come in handy later when you are organizing your items and need some wiggle room. Place valuable items toward the back, as far from the door as you can. In the front of your storage unit, leave boxes and other objects you plan on swapping out frequently, so you do not have to waste time searching for them later.
  2. Invest in quality storage supplies. Do not leave the safety of your belongings in the hands of an old box that has been sitting in your closet for years. We sell storage supplies on-site in our office. Pop over any time you need for boxes, bubble wrap, locks, and much more. Our storage experts can also help you pick out packing supplies you may not think of right away, like furniture covers and glass-packing kits.
  3. Label boxes if you cannot see the contents. This is another time-saver. It may take a few extra minutes when packing up your boxes, but in the long run, you will be happy you did. Even marking the general room in the house those items belong can help you stay organized as you unpack.
