1. Mark/Label That Box

The key to organized storage is labeling all your boxes and bins. This goes beyond just noting which room in the house it will go to when it is unloaded. Make a list of all the items going into the box. Be sure to write down everything from the Keurig to the K-Cups to the random wine opener you threw in because the box had extra space. You are not going to remember which box is holding what once you drop them off in the storage unit.

2. Avoid Heavy Boxes

This is easier said than done. A good piece of advice is to pack light items in your big boxes and heavy items in your smaller boxes. It is easier to carry a small box with heavy items than a large box with even more heavy items. Distribute that weight across multiple boxes so you avoid any unnecessary strain on your back and any box breakage.

3. Yes, Quality Matters

If you are prepared for your move, you may have been stocking up boxes for a few months now. Examine each one before packing to assure it can hold the weight of what you are putting inside it. Use your best boxes for your heaviest and most fragile items. Need more boxes? That is not a problem. ABC Storage sells storage supplies on-site at our Harrisburg PA office. When you buy storage supplies during October, a percentage of the profits go to Susan G. Komen in observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
