Self Storage Tips for Everybody!

Store items you may need to access at front of unit.
Worn boxes can collapse and lead to damage. Use similar size boxes so they pack easy and make better use of space. Try to fill boxes to maintain sturdiness and stack lighter boxes on top. Pack heavy things in small boxes and lighter things in larger boxes
Anything important should be wrapped or boxed in storage to protect from dust and dirt.
Old bed sheets, towels and comforters make excellent padding to protect furniture.
