Portable storage units can take the place of a more traditional truck for moving. One advantage is that you are packing things yourself, rather than relying on someone else to do it. When packing for a storage unit, it is important to include something to absorb moisture. Extra space is better than not enough space, so if you’re unsure what size storage unit to go with, it’s better to go with a larger one. Getting storage boxes of the same size will make stacking inside the unit easier.
- Invest in moisture absorbers and get boxes and totes that are of uniform size.
- Use color-coding when labeling boxes and group the items into categories.
- Portable storage containers let you take your time unpacking, grabbing boxes row by row.
