How Much Storage Do You Need?
Stack your items in similar sized boxes as they will be easier to stack. Stack the heaviest boxes on the bottom.
Avoid stacking items directly against the wall. Leave some space between your items and the wall which will allow for some air flow in the unit.
Save time! Make a plan on how you want to organize and pack your unit. In order to maximize the use of your storage unit store couches on end, stack chairs seat to seat, and use larger items to store blankets, clothes, and small miscellaneous items.
Consider using pallets, boards, blocks, etc. to keep items up off the floor of the unit.
Try to leave a walkway in your unit which will make it easier for you to access all items.
Consider purchasing and using shelving units to better utilize your storage space.
Label all boxes on all sides! This will reduce your search time whenever you want to retrieve boxed items later.
Pack Items that you will be frequently accessing towards the front.
Disassemble large items, such as bed frames, tables, etc. This will save space and help to prevent them from breaking. Be sure to keep all parts together. Keep screws and smaller items handy by taping them to the larger item they belong to.
