The best way to ensure a good self storage experience is to plan ahead. Gather up sturdy boxes, paper, markers and tape. Box similar things together so they're easy to find in your unit in the future. Make sure your boxes are all a uniform size so they'll stack easily.
Fill your boxes tightly, but don't overfill them—bulky boxes make for bad stacking. Don't underfill them, either, or they might buckle under the weight of other boxes. Fill any empty spaces with your bubble wrap or paper. Follow these self storage tips to best preserve Aunt Edna's crystal candy dish or your vintage fashion collection!
