Always Inspect your storage space before using it.
Plan your storage space to make sure the space is adequate for your storage items.
Label Boxes: Labeling your boxes and keeping similar items together will help you find the items when you need them. Be sure to label two sides as well to make it easier to read them. Do not put labels on the top of boxes.
Fill Boxes to Capacity: If you have partially filled boxes or boxes that cannot close that can collapse or tip over causing damage to what is inside. When storing heavy items such as books or tools, use smaller boxes so they are not too heavy and also place them on the bottom of the stack. Protect fragile items with bubble wrap, drop clothes, or mattress and furniture covers.
Pack your Storage Unit Carefully: Make sure to leave space around items on the perimeter and use pallets to allow good air flow. Use all the space available especially the vertical (height), and put frequently needed items closest to the doors.
