Self Storage Packing and Storage Tips | Storage Solutions USA

1. Smallest

Rent the smallest amount of space you will need and pack the unit full.

2. Gather Materials

Start by gathering as many boxes as you think you will need, tape, markers, and packing material (i.e. foam shipping noodles, bubble wrap, packing paper or towels).

3. Uniform Sizes

If possible, try to use uniformly sized boxes for easy stacking.

4. Inventory

Make up an inventory of your items and keep it in a safe place at home or in a safe deposit box away from the unit.

5. Prepare

Prepare your space by placing a protective cover on the floor under your goods.

6. Keep Dry

Place your storage items on 2x4 boards or on pallets to guard against dampness. Any concrete floor may become cold and damp.

7. Access

Plan your storage space. Place those items that you may need to access often in the front.


Do not store anything COMBUSTIBLE (i.e., paint thinner, gasoline, solvents, paint, etc.).
