Get a Few Different Sizes of Boxes
When it comes to packing, every box is not created equally. You should put heavier items like books into smaller boxes so they are easy to carry. Put light items like pillows or clothing into larger boxes. When you use the right size boxes for your belongings, it makes it much easier to move your cartons around in the storage unit. When you put the boxes into storage, do not place heavy items on top of lighter boxes.

Try to Place Similar Items Together
It will be easier to keep your storage unit organized if you place similar items into the same box. If you are storing items from a few different rooms, for example, place the kitchen items into one box and the bedroom items into a different box.

Make a Master List
You should always create a master list for your boxes so you know exactly where everything is. Label each box with a number or a letter and create a list that describes everything that is packed into a specific box. Whether you have five boxes or fifty, this system makes it easy to keep your storage unit organized so it can be as efficient as possible. Write “fragile” on any boxes that have breakables so anyone who moves them knows to be careful.

Use Helpful Packing Materials
Packing materials help you pack your boxes more efficiently. You can use packing paper or bubble wrap to protect fragile items. You can also use these materials to fill in any extra spaces in the boxes so your items do not shift around inside. Packing tape helps you secure the cartons so the boxes do not open when you move them.
