Tips & Tricks for Packing
People who pack for a living, or just do it well, understand the importance of a good plan of action. Armed with a master list of your items, enough sturdy boxes, some strong tape, and a good pen, you’ll pack like a pro, and be done in no time. Here are a few more tips and tricks.
Look Up – To make the most of your self storage unit, maximize the vertical space. To stack safely and efficiently, use boxes that are the same size, and pack them completely, so they don’t get crushed. Heaviest ones on the bottom, crystal figurines on top.
Go by the Numbers – Use a permanent marker to list the contents of each box, then number the boxes. Keep a list of your handiwork somewhere. You’ll be amazed and relieved to see how easy it will be to locate items later on.
Think Outside the Box – To store clothing and other fabrics, grab a trash bag. Just poke a hole in the bottom seam and push hanger hooks through for a DIY wardrobe bag. Trash cans are an efficient container to organize tools like rakes and shovels.
Taking the time to pack your storage unit well will pay off big time. When the work is done, you’ll be at ease knowing everything has a home and is easily accessible. Contact Coyote Lakes Cool Storage to learn more about month-to-month renting in Surprise, AZ.
