Pack Your Storage Unit with These 3 Tips

1. Start Planning the Layout of Your Storage Unit Once You Know Dimensions

Take inventory of your large boxes, and consider the different ways you can organize (stacking, putting in a shelf, etc.). As you arrange items for long-term storage, place valuables toward the back and items you plan on frequently accessing close to the front. 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. Swing by to browse our storage supplies selection, and talk through your rental with our storage experts

3. Label Any Containers in Which You Cannot See Their Contents

If you are storing with multiple boxes that are around the same size, you should label them to keep them straight. This will make the unpacking process much smoother and more organized. When storing before a move, you can label the room that box will be unpacked into and streamline your movers’ instructions. If you are only labeling for yourself, you can include more detail, so you can find specific items as you need them.
