Top Packing Tips for Your Storage Unit

1. Labels Are Your Friend

The more you label, the easier it will be to find the contents of those boxes later. A common tip is to write the name of the room that the box will be unpacked into. Let us say you are packing up a box of bathroom objects. The next step is to list the items in each box. How else will you know which one is holding your first aid supplies instead of your bath and spa products? It seems like a lot of effort in the beginning, but once you pack everything away, you will have no clue where anything is.

2. Towels Act as Padding

Smaller towels are the perfect buffer in between fragile objects like glasses and dishes. The padding keeps them from knocking into each other and breaking. Towels and blankets can also be stuffed around items to keep them from moving in the box. Get creative with the items around you to safely packing away your breakables.

3. Get Strong Boxes

Save your best, sturdiest boxes for your heaviest items. These need the most reinforcements and are at greater risk of breaking boxes. If you have older boxes that are being held together by duct tape, use those to store your light items, like blankets and clothing. The last thing you want is for your items to fall through a box because it was not strong enough to do its job.

If you are in need of more boxes or other packing supplies, we sell storage supplies at our Frederick MD facility. When you buy in October, a portion of the sales go to Susan G. Komen for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
