When you are looking to move from one house to another there are lots of people that choose to downsize and reorganize. There are lots of things that you have in your home that if you were have to decide to pack it and move it you might just let it go. These types of things may not be something that you want to get rid of but don’t want to keep in your new house. That means that you need to find a place to keep the items so that you can gain access to it when needed. This is when most people will take on a storage unit or a storage container. You want to make sure that you take the time to pack the space correctly so that you can get what you need.
Laprom Movers Outlines How to Pack & Load Your Portable Storage Container
Stackable Boxes: You want to make sure that you use boxes or plastic bins that are easy to stack. These will make the organization of the unit easier. The boxes or bins will be able to stack along the walls and the isles so that you are getting the most out of the space. This will allow you the ability to stack the boxes higher up in the space so that you are not wasting area that otherwise can be used. The boxes should be in good shape and study so that as you stack them they will not bow or bend.
Label Moving Boxes for Storage: When you are taking items that you plan on placing in a storage container or a storage unit you want to make sure that you have labels. The labels will allow you the ability to go through the unit and pinpoint what it is that you need. The containers that are in the storage area are usually not used often and that means that you may not know where the things are that you want. The labels should be placed so that you can see them when you walk through the unit. These labels can and should be as detailed as they need to be to determine what you have in the container.
Disassemble Large Pieces for Storage: If you are moving your home from one space to another you will need to load it into a container or a truck. That means that you need to be able to have the space to fit it all in. The larger pieces of furniture should be taken apart so that it can be secured and not waste the space. This might be bookshelves or beds to name a few of the most common. Then you can get them to fit in the space while you are able to use the rest of the space with boxes and bins.
Load Most Used Items in the Front: The last thing that you want to do is to pack the things in the storage container that you need most common in the front. The container may need to be accessed to get things that you may need before the move happens. That is why you want to keep the most commonly used things at the front of the container.
