Getting ready to move your belongings into a new storage unit? Maximize your storage space with our simple, space-saving packing and storage tips.
Labelling your boxes before moving them into storage will help you identify where your valuables are quickly. It also allows you to organize your related belongings together for easy access.
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 damages to your valuables.
Loading large boxes with multiple heavy objects can result in an injury when you move them. Avoid unnecessary strain by placing your heavier items in small boxes. Your back will thank you later!
Wrap your breakable possessions like glassware in bubble wrap or wrapping paper. Furniture should be covered in protective material, but avoid heavy plastics as they can trap moisture.
If you have box cutters, screwdrivers and other tools, place them in the same area for quick access. A simple tool kit is extremely helpful to have in your unit when dealing with any belongings that need to be assembled or taken apart.
