Categorize Before You Pack

Pick through your belongings before you move them. Keep these questions in mind as you sort:

  • Is this item useful?
  • How often do I use this item?
  • Am I emotionally attached to this item?
  • Is this item worn out?
  • Is it worth purchasing a new one?
  • Could I donate this item?
  • Will this item fit well in my new place?
  • Is there room for this in my new house?

If the item doesn’t pass muster, throw it out or donate it. Read the following two sections for guidance.

Pick through your belongings before you move them. Keep these questions in mind as you sort:

  • Broken items
  • Items with missing parts
  • Old papers, such as mail, magazines, and birthday cards
  • Rusty or dented equipment, such as gardening sheers or bicycle helmets

Some items may hold sentimental value, and be difficult to throw away. If you find yourself in this predicament, box these items together, and label the box with today’s date. Make yourself a bargain to revisit that box a year from now. At that time, open the box and ask yourself the following question: Do I need to hold onto this, or is it time to let it go?

Donate These Items

folded clothes for donation

Consider donating any items that you no longer have use for. Remember, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Those who frequent garage sales and consignment stores love:

  • Clothing free from holes and stains
  • Pots, pans, plates, glasses, and silverware
  • Furniture
  • Tools
  • Toys

Note: Consignment stores and thrift stores both accept donations. Consignment stores will split a portion of the profit with you. Thrift stores won’t. Instead, thrift stores will give you a receipt to use on your taxes. That’s right, donations are tax deductible.

Fragile Items

Protect fragile items with the proper padding and support. Wine glasses, mirrors, and ceramic dishes break easily, so bring along the following packing materials:

  • Bubble wrap
  • Boxes designed to hold dishes
  • Boxes designed to hold glasses
  • Dish and glass packers
  • Towels
  • Newspaper
  • Styrofoam peanuts
  • Furniture covers

The boxes built for dishes, and those built for glasses, come pre-divided into special compartments. Each one holds a specific item, reducing the likelihood of breakage. Take our word for it, these boxes are indispensable to any move.

Keep track of the belongings you wish to keep, so you can identify and retrieve items quickly. There’s nothing worse than rushing around, unable to find what you need. Include the following on your inventory spreadsheet:

  • Name and description of each item
  • The condition of each item
  • Date of storage for each item
  • Location in storage for each item

Most importantly, grab your iPhone and snap at least one picture of each item. For more expensive items, like your flat screen tv and designer sneakers, snap a picture from each side. No, the pics aren’t for bragging rights. They provide insurance companies with proof in case your valuables are damaged.

How to Pack Your Mini Storage Unit

How you pack your mini storage unit is crucial in order to maximize your space. You can always ask our friendly on-site manager for tips on packing your mini-storage unit.

  1. We recommend you fill your boxes evenly. Fill extra space in boxes with packing material, towels, or rags.
  2. Keep everything covered to avoid dust, corrosion, and other damage from the elements.
  3. Place large furniture against the back wall of your unit.
  4. Label all boxes clearly, using a thick black marker (like a Sharpie) and large handwriting.
  5. Wrap all fragile items before placing them in boxes.
  6. Keep books flat while packing to protect the spine.
  7. Combine heavier items with lighter items in the same box. It keeps the weight manageable and the boxes easier to lift.

Tips on Preparing Items for Storage

  1. Remove legs from couches and tables. Store furniture on its sides to save space.
  2. Place dressers end to end to maximize space.
  3. Store most frequently needed items toward the front of your unit.
  4. Clear a walkway down the middle of your unit for easy access to all your belongings.
  5. Place boxes and furniture on pallets or skids to create airflow around your items.
  6. Place old photos between two pieces of cardboard and tape together to prevent curling over time.
  7. Drain gasoline from any piece of equipment with an engine before stowing it in your storage unit.
  8. Use trash cans to store items such as shovels, hoes, and rakes.
  9. Use protective covers and treat wood before storing.
  10. Cover mattresses and store them on flat surfaces or against a wall.
  11. Use a wardrobe box for items like draperies, blankets, and dress clothes.
  12. Always use a heavy-duty lock on your mini storage unit.
