Tips to Pack Your Storage Unit Effectively

We can set you up with the right size storage unit for your needs. Pick out your storage unit online, and call or stop by our office on Snow Hill Road for more advice on how to best pack up your storage unit with your specific items.

Pack Your Storage Unit with These 3 Tips

  1. Once you know the dimensions of your storage unit, start planning the layout. Take inventory of your large boxes, and consider the different ways you can organize (stacking, putting in a shelf, etc.). We recommend leaving space down the middle of your storage unit for an aisle, so you can access all the corners of your unit.
  2. Use quality packing supplies. Fragile items need extra precautions when being packed up, and that requires solid boxes and plenty of padding. Luckily, the Salisbury Storage Warehouse office on Snow Hill Road sells storage supplies, from boxes of all sizes to locks to yards of bubble wrap.
  3. Label any containers in which you cannot see their contents. This will make the unpacking process much smoother and more organized.
