How to Pack Your Storage Unit & Declutter

1. Make a Cheat Sheet for Box Contents

Do you label your boxes when you are packing them away for storage? We recommend taking the extra steps now to make it easier on yourself later. The first thing to label on the box is the room of the house into which the box will be unpacked. This can help for organizing your storage unit and for unpacking purposes. Next, list the contents of the box. It is up to you how much detail you want to go into, but it will be much easier later on when you are looking for a certain item and can look at the cheat sheet to see what box it is in.

2. Heavier Objects in Smaller Boxes

Prioritize weight distribution when you are packing to avoid any injury or boxes breaking. A large box may be able to fit a lot of big items, but it will also get heavy pretty quickly. When you are packing, remember to put heavy items in smaller boxes and lighter items in large boxes. If you are in need of some new boxes, we sell storage supplies in our Prior Lake, MN, office. Stop in to stock up on boxes of all sizes,
