10 Self-Storage Tips for Your Unit in Bear, DE

Getting ready to move your belongings into a new storage unit? Maximize your storage space with our simple, space-saving packing and storage tips.

1) Add Labels To Your Boxes

Labelling your boxes before moving them into storage will help you quickly identify where your valuables are. It also allows you to organize your related belongings together for easy access.

2) Stack Boxes To Save Space

Maximize your storage space by stacking your items as high as you safely can. Place your large, heavy objects towards the bottom of your stack and light items at the top. This will prevent potential falls and damage to your valuables.

3) Make A Path

When storing your items, create a pathway in the center of your unit. Doing so makes navigating your space and accessing your belongings easier.

4) Use Small Boxes For Heavy Items

Loading large boxes with multiple heavy objects can result in an injury. Avoid unnecessary strain by placing heavy items in small boxes. Your back will thank you later!

5) Protect Your Fragile Belongings

Protect your breakable possessions in bubble wrap or wrapping paper. Cover furniture in protective material, but avoid heavy plastics as they can trap moisture.

6) Prioritize For Placement

Which items will you need to access the most often? Place them towards the front of your unit to save time, effort, and avoid disturbing your other belongings.

7) Take Your Furniture Apart

If your furniture can be disassembled, this will save space in your unit. Doing so will also help reduce strain when the furniture is moved.

8) Store A Ladder Or Stool

If you stack your boxes, you may need help reaching them. Keep a ladder or foldable stool in your unit for accessing items that are out of reach.

9) Keep Your Tools Together

If you have box cutters, screwdrivers and other tools, place them in the same area for quick access. A tool kit is helpful to have in your unit when dealing with any belongings that need to be assembled or taken apart.
