It’s pretty tempting to try and cram everything into a storage space. After all, the goal is to make more space at home, not in the storage facility, right? Unfortunately, this doesn’t always make a person’s life easier. There are a few tips that can help ensure a storage facility is packed properly and that items are easy to find inside.
Label the Boxes
Take some time to label all of the contents in each of the boxes using a heavy black marker. This is something that a person needs to take the time to do. If they don’t they are going to regret it when they are having to tear open all the boxes in their unit trying to find seasonal decorations.
Make sure that the boxes actually contain the items that are labeled as being inside. If the items are breakable or easy to damage, then make sure to mark it as “Fragile.”
Disassemble All Furniture
There are many items that are stored that don’t have to remain as big as they are initially. Try to find ways to reduce the size of larger items. This includes chairs, tables, couches, bed frames and more. Doing so will free up some space and allow more to be put in the unit.
Keep an Aisle Open in the Middle
It’s important to make sure there is a clear path down the center of the storage unit. This will ensure a person doesn’t have to try and climb over their furniture and boxes to try and get to that one thing that is needed. Also, be sure that all of the labels on the boxes are facing toward the front so that they can be easily read
When it comes to packing a storage unit, it’s important to use the tips and information here. Doing so will ensure that a unit is organized and that items can be found with ease. Being informed is one of the best ways to ensure that a person can get the most out of their storage unit. This will make the investment well-worth the money that is paid each month.
