How to Pack an Exceptional Storage Unit

Label All Boxes

  • Moving or renovating, label boxes by room
  • General storage, label boxes by contents or season


Pack Boxes Efficiently

  • Fragile Items
  • Place a layer of bubble wrap in the bottom of the box
  • Individually wrap each item with bubble wrap or packing paper
  • Fill in the empty spaces with packing popcorn or crumpled paper
  • Place an additional layer of bubble wrap on top
  • Clearly label the box “Fragile”


Heavy Items

  • Books or tools should be packed in small boxes so they are easier to lift
  • Fill in the empty spaces with packing popcorn or crumpled paper; partially full or bulging boxes may tip or collapse
  • Make an inventory of the contents of your unit for your convenience and reference


Packing the Storage Unit

  • Place a pallet, corrugated cardboard, mat or plastic sheet on concrete floors to prevent moisture absorption
  • Do not lean items against walls, as open perimeter space improves air movement through your unit for heating and ventilation
  • Leave a walkway to the rear of your unit for easier access
  • Stack boxes in rows with labels facing the walkway
  • Place boxes marked “Fragile” on top
  • Place frequently used goods nearest the door
