How To Pack For Storage
Pack these items into small boxes and label them clearly. Good labeling at this point can save you a lot of time and effort later when trying to find something, so be sure to take a little time to do this properly.
How you pack your items will impact on the size of storage unit you will require. Smaller boxes will undoubtedly stack differently than larger boxes.
You should consider how manageable the box would be, will it be heavy, can it be stacked, and will it be able to have other boxes placed on top of it. You can take advantage of you storage unit height by stacking as many boxes as possible.
You can help to protect your items further by packing well e.g. packing books flat will protect their spines and if your unit features a concrete floor, storing them on pallets will protect them from condensation in the concrete. Books can quickly fill a large box and become very heavy consider using a smaller box to make them more manageable.
When placing your boxes in storage be sure to place the bigger boxes at the back to enable you easier access.
A great self storage tip is to make a list of every item in storage and the box number it is residing in. Keep this list pinned to the inside wall of your unit as you enter for quick and easy reference when searching for a particular item.
