How to Properly Load Your Self Storage Unit to Avoid Damage

Enjoy these tips for loading your self-storage unit in Cedar City:

  • Rent the smallest amount of space you need and pack the space until full. Contact us for a free estimate to make sure you don’t pay for extra space.
  • A box for everything and everything in a box, is the best protection of your goods. Use uniform sizes of boxes and stack them shoulder high to maximize your total storage space.
  • Prepare your unit by placing plastic on the floor under your goods. Be sure the plastic laps up over the walls a few inches on every side.
  • Leave a small air space between the goods stored and the storage unit walls.
  • Store lightweight small items around the back of the storage unit. Move large, heavy items into storage last.
  • Do not place heavy or sharp objects on top of upholstered furniture.
  • Protect your mattresses, sofas, and chairs with plastic covers or blankets.
  • Cover the entire load with a light plastic cover to protect it from dust.
  • Use a good quality lock on your storage unit door. Cheap locks rust.
  • Insure your goods while in storage. Ask us how to secure self storage insurance at reasonable rates.
  • Keep a list of all items in storage as well as pictures, and descriptions to remember what’s in there, and to make it easier to access.

    Thanks for the post. I like the idea to place plastic on the floor under your boxes. That can be a great way to keep water from damaging any boxes. I also like the idea to cover your items with plastic. Especially furniture. That can help to keep the dust off and keep your items clean.

    My husband and I are going to be moving in the next few weeks so we have been thinking about getting a storage unit. I think that labeling all of the boxes will really help us to keep track of things so that nothing gets lost. We will be sure to keep these tips in mind, thanks for sharing!
