Think Ahead

When starting out packing your things take a moment to pause and think ahead. Divide your belongings into three separate groups.

The first group being things that you will not require at all, the second group, items that may be used occasionally, and lastly, the items you may need several times a year.

 

Box Accordingly

Make certain that you pack your pre-organised groups into their appropriate boxes. You don’t want to waste all your hard work organizing your items only to shove them all into the same boxes.

 

Use Technology

Be sure to make use of all your available skills and technology to make things as easy as possible. Create a printable page to attach to each box, describing the contents to make ease of locating your items when you need to.

If you don’t have access to a computer, simply try to create your own hard copy if possible.

 

Unpacking Accordingly

Once you arrive at your self-storage facility, make sure you unpack your boxes into appropriate positions. The three groups that you packed your belongings into should now be organized accordingly.

Least used should be placed at the rear, occasional use next, and any items in the more frequently used category should be placed at the front in easily accessible locations. Place boxes with the contents list facing outward to make things easily locatable.

Following these few simple steps can ensure a smooth storage experience and avoid any chaos when it comes time to locate any of your belongings.
