3 Quick Storage Unit Packing Tips

Use Quality Packing Supplies

Don’t skimp on packaging products when you need it most! Utilizing correctly sized boxes will help you to better organize your storage locker. Stop in at Vault Storage today to make sure you have all the packing material necessary to properly organize your unit. We sell boxes, packing kits, tape, box cutters, bubble wrap, and more. Talk to our storage experts to find the best supplies to aid in packing up your more delicate objects.

Remember to Pack Vertically

In a recent guide, Moving.com explains the importance of utilizing your entire storage unit space. If possible, look into adding shelves for your storage unit, and make sure to store larger items, such as furniture, toward the back and bottom of your storage unit. Large objects make a great foundation for stacking other—lighter—belongings on top. Another packing tip we recommend is to create an aisle in your storage unit, so you can just as easily access the back corner as the front by the door.

Disassemble Your Larger Items

It might seem like more work at the time, but you will be thanking yourself later. Any furniture items, exercise equipment, or similar items should be disassembled prior to their storage. Use plastic wrap, tape, and bubble wrap to safely secure all parts of a larger item in one place. If you plan to store long-term, these are the items that can risk misshaping and moisture-related damage.
