One of the tips I let everyone know is that if you use the same type of boxes to pack your storage unit, you’ll likely be able to stack them efficiently and securely in the unit. Many of our storage units on 25 James Street and 29 Flint Road are approximately eight feet high. So with that kind of height you can stack your boxes pretty high and maximize the space within the unit safely utilize all the space that you can in your storage unit.
It is very important for you to make sure that the boxes you have chosen are of high quality and proper dimensions. This will help you maximize the efficiency of your storing space and will provide a much better level of protection to your belongings. Besides that, you are also strongly recommended to use boxes of similar size, as that will make it very easy for you to stack them comfortably in a completely secure way. Here at Storage Station we sell a variety of boxes and packing supplies that will help you efficiently pack your unit and give you the peace of mind that your belongings are safe and secure.
Proper marking on the package is also important. For example, depending upon the type of belongings stored, you can mark the boxes heavy, or fragile. You may also like to label them according to the room the stored belongings came from. This will make the process of unloading much smoother for you.
If you have to visit your storage facility for any reason, ensure that you move everything that you need to the front of your storage unit.
This will allow you to pack your storage unit tightly behind the belongings that you will still need to use. You can still get a smaller unit instead of a larger one because you do not have to move anything else around to get to different items.
