When you are actually moving your belongings into the storage facility be sure to move the heavier, bulkier items in first. Start storing boxes from the rear of the unit with heavier items on the floor and lighter items stacked on top.
  • As you start stacking boxes, keep an aisle way access to the back of the unit and try to fit things tightly to save on space.
  • Add shelving units along the walls to maximize space and ensure none of your boxes get crushed or damaged.
