Storage units are a great way to free up space in your home or office, and allows you to set aside items used every once in a while. However, efficiency and safety are crucial when storing your belongings. You can follow these two strategies to ensure that your stored items will be secure and easy-to-find in the future:

Pack with Caution

  • Styrofoam dish spacers, found at any POUCH Self Storage facility, are excellent to use when storing fragile items, but you can also use alternating layers of print paper and bubble wrap also located at any POUCH Self Storage facility. For an extra layer of protection, try placing small items in a desk or dresser drawer rather than a cardboard box. You can also fill the rest of the drawer space with clothes, hats, or even shoes.

Label Everything

  • Clearly mark or label every box placed in storage, and consider arranging them in an easy-to-remember layout, such as expensive items in the corners, delicate items on top, and items you intend to access often in front. Consider making a list of where everything is and leave it in the storage unit for easy access.
