How to pack and organise items in self storage
To make the most of your hired unit, it’s important to keep everything well-ordered; this makes retrieving your belongings later on an easy task. When you pack and organise your self storage well, you can ensure that your belongings will be safe too, labelling boxes with ‘fragile’ will stop you from stacking heavy objects on top and thus, keep your possessions in one piece.
The best way to pack and organise your belongings in your storage unit is to use sturdy, reinforced boxes, bubble wrap for fragile items, a label machine for rooms (i.e. kitchen, living room, bedroom). Always stack wisey (i.e. heavy boxes at the bottom, lighter boxes on top) because this will help to make the most of your space.
