Tips to Prep for Storage with Our Packing Supplies

1. Label All Your Boxes and Bins

Labeling will make your unpacking process a lot easier. If you label boxes with the contents of the box, you will be able to find a specific item later without having to pull apart your storage unit. You can also organize your storage unit by boxes storing the same room’s items. Mark that room on the outside to help movers down the line.

2. Anything Soft Can Be Padding for Boxes

Use the items you already have to provide padding in your boxes. Hand towels and pillow cases are small enough to fit in between glasses but are soft enough to prevent the glasses from hitting one another. Another idea is to save your newspapers for a few weeks leading up to your packing.

For the safety of your items, you want to pack your box until it is full—but not too heavy. Including padding can fill in extra space in your boxes without adding extra weight for you to carry.

3. Stronger Boxes are Better Boxes

The biggest thing to keep in mind when packing boxes is that if it gets too heavy, the bottom might give out. Avoid putting all your large items in your large boxes, as they tend to be on the heavy side and will quickly add up. Keep heavier items in smaller, sturdy boxes, and your older or less reliable boxes can hold light items that pose little-to-no risk of breaking.
