Packing and Moving into your Storage Unit

Have a Date in Mind
Like putting any plan into action, its important to have your dates clearly lined up. This way you can follow a procedure in a timely and stress-free manner for better preparation

Categorize All your Belongings
Now you need to go through all the belongings you have. Here its important of course to not only categorize by size to better maximize space in your unit, but also categorize what you need regular access to. This will make these items easier to access when your unit is filled and save time. Categorizing all your items also ensures you can account for everything and won’t lose any valuables during the move.

Packing and Moving

Donate or Bin Unwanted Items
Everyone collects a wide variety of stuff over a lengthy period of time. Now you’ve sorted through everything, you will undoubtedly have some things you no longer need. This would be a good time to bin, recycle or even donate those items before making the process of transporting your goods to a unit.

Packing Items Securely
Now you’ve identified your items, it’s time to purchase boxes and packaging. Make a decision between either carboard or plastic boxes depending on what goods you’re transporting. It’s also important to label these boxes accordingly to avoid future confusion. Here at StorageX we sell a variety of different sized boxes and packaging to help.
