Mini Storage Packing Tips

Here are some tips for getting the most out of your mini storage unit:

  • Mini Storage Packing Tip #1:  Arrange your items in your mini storage unit so that there is an aisle for easy access.
  • Mini Storage Packing Tip #2:  Label boxes clearly on the top and at least one side.  When you stack boxes, make sure the labels are facing out.
  • Mini Storage Packing Tip #3:  Pack books in small boxes to make them more manageable for moving.  Also stack books rather than storing them vertically to avoid damage to their spines.
  • Mini Storage Packing Tip #4:  Box everything you can to keep it neat and clean.  It’s easier to stack boxes in an organized fashion, and boxes will help keep items from getting dirty or dusty.
  • Mini Storage Packing Tip #5:  When storing chairs, stack them with the seats together.  This saves floor space by using as much vertical space as possible.
  • Mini Storage Packing Tip #6:  Whenever possible, disassemble items.  This allows you to maximize space, rather than taking up a lot of room with something bulky.
  • Mini Storage Packing Tip #7:  When storing furniture than can be disassembled, tape all screws, nuts, and bolts to the underside of the piece.  This will make it easier to reassemble the furniture later.
  • Mini Storage Packing Tip #8:  Heavy items should be arranged on the bottom, and lighter things can go on top.  This protects your lighter items and makes stacks more stable.
  • Mini Storage Packing Tip #9:  Store long items vertically to maximize space.
  • Mini Storage Packing Tip #10:  When storing lamps, remove the shade and light bulb.  This prevents broken glass and damage to delicate lamp shades.
