Packing your belongings for a storage unit requires a lot of planning and prepping. However, your Salt Lake City movers at All My Sons Moving & Storage are here to provide you with the best tips on how to pack your items effectively for storage units in Salt Lake City. You want to properly utilize the storage unit space while still providing enough space for you to easily access your belongings. You should purchase the appropriate packing products when planning for your storage unit transfer.
Store Items in Boxes
Boxes are the best way to store your items because you can easily stack them in the designated space. This will allow for the most efficient use of space if you have a smaller unit. You should fill the entire box to avoid it from collapsing or tipping over. We suggest you fill your boxes with heavy items first and then fill it to capacity with lighter items so it’s easier to carry. It’s so important to label all boxes and we suggest printing out uniform labels that are easily identifiable on all sides of the boxes. Purchase packaging tape, scissors, box cutters, and sharpie markers for the remaining packing products you will utilize.
Use Covers for Protection
Your storage unit can definitely become dusty and dirty over time, so it’s important to protect your belongings with the proper packing products for your furniture while in storage. One storage unit packing tip would be to place an old sheet on the ground before you store any boxes or furniture. Moisture and dust can accumulate in the base of the area and you don’t want to find your items damaged after some time. You can opt to use our climate controlled storage facilities to ensure your items are kept in perfect condition!
