Choosing the Right Moving and Self Storage Boxes

Last week, we talked about getting it right the first time when it comes to self storage. One of the most important considerations you need to make is about your boxes. How you store your items is essential when it comes to organization and lessening your confusion when are trying to find items in your self storage unit.

First, as we mentioned last week, your boxes need to be the same size and shape when possible. They also need to be high quality and strong enough to hold your items without falling apart. It is tempting to just go out and find any boxes you can get your hands on, and they end up being random and various sizes, shapes, and strengths. This will only lead to confusion later on. Uniformly-sized boxes are easier to stack, and it also makes it easier to create access rows in your self storage unit.

The key is to figure out what size box is best for the items you will be storing. You want your boxes big enough to hold your largest items, but you don’t want the boxes so big that you can’t move or lift them when they’re full. You may want to buy an assortment within a range of similar sizes and do a test to see what’s going to work best for you. Once you find the right size, then you need to organize your items into groups so you can make them easier to find when you return to your self-storage unit.

Next time, we will talk about the importance of labeling and give you some tips on how to label everything in your self-storage unit. This will save you a lot of headaches in the long run. Contact Hollywood Self Storage in Augusta GA for climate controlled, secure self storage.
