Asking for help will save you both time and money! As self storage experts, we are here to give you friendly advice on how to use your storage space efficiently and properly pack your items.

Label your boxes

When you pack your boxes, label them clearly with a marker and indicate the contents on the side of the box so that it is clearly visible. This makes it easy to find your items when you are looking for them.

Avoid lifting heavy boxes

Remember that books and papers can be heavy. Packing these items in several smaller boxes can prevent possible injuries from lifting.

Use sturdy packaging

Package your items with sturdy packaging so that you can stack items on top of each other. This ensures that you use your storage space efficiently and minimize the amount of storage space you need.

Prevent your boxes from tipping

To prevent tipping, fill your boxes to capacity. Of course this will likely increase the weight of large boxes so it is best to use smaller boxes to prevent injury.

Helpful supplies - Some things are not essential, but they do make your job easier!

  • Marker or pen – remind yourself of the contents of your boxes!
  • Fragile tape – remind your helpers that a box needs to be handled with care
  • Gripper gloves – to protect your hands and give extra grip when moving boxes and items
  • Appliance rollers – slip these under heavier items to wheel them around
  • Miscellaneous supplies such as a disposable knife, scissors, tape measure, plastic storage boxes, sticky labels, string, elastic bungees are always useful to have on hand!
