When it comes time to fully utilize your storage container it’s important you know how to pack it properly, so you can optimize your space. We believe you should always get the best storage deal possible, so that means taking full advantage of the space you’re renting.
In this post we’re going to take a look at storage an packing techniques that will help you get the most out of your unit, as well as showcase a few unique storage solutions that we offer.
1. Consider Your Packing Needs First
When it comes time to utilize a storage space effectively and efficiently you’ll need to consider why you’re storing your goods in the first place – as every situation is unique.
For instance, will you need to access your storage container on a regular basis? Or, will you primarily be using the container for yearly storage? The frequency that you’ll need to access your unit will change how you’re going to store everything. You’d hate to have to re-pack and unpack your Springfield storage unit every single time you need to remove an item.
Once you have a better understanding of how you’re going to use the unit, then it actually makes sense to move forward with a packing strategy.
2. Use Standard Packing Procedures
When it comes to packing there are a few general procedures you can follow that will help you store your goods safely and easily. For starters, box up any goods before you leave your home. You may think that it’s easier just loading up the car to transport, but you’ll be thankful that everything is in boxes the moment you arrive.
Always start with the heavier boxes and larger items on the bottom. You’d be surprised how often people either run out of room, or end up ruining their prized possessions, simply because they didn’t take time with their packing process.
If you have anything fragile, make sure to always wrap it up. It’s better to spend more time prepping your goods, than having to deal with broken items, or a big mess to clean up.
Overall, the more time you spend prepping your goods for storage the better. Also, be aware of where you’re placing items and when you’ll need to access them. Keep these rules in mind when packing your unit and everything should be protected and ready to go when you need them again.
