How to Pack a Storage Unit 

  • Place heavier items on the bottom and lighter items on top. When packing up your box and packing up your storage unit, heavy items act as a strong foundation to support other objects. Keep light objects on top to prevent them from getting crushed. 
  • Plan the layout of your storage unit. Which items will you need to access more frequently and keep up front by the door? Which boxes have valuable items and should be packed in the back? Also, include an aisle, so you can easily navigate your storage unit.
  • Label your boxes to help with your organization. This way you know what is in each box without needing to open it up.
