Fall Storage Checklist for Businesses

Before placing your items in your new storage unit, you’ll want to be sure you’re prepared. This includes buying the right packing and moving supplies, taking inventory of items you plan to store, and packing them properly. Our storage experts at Devon Self Storage have created a fall storage checklist for businesses to help make sure you’re ready to move into your storage unit.

Take Inventory of Your Items

The first thing you’ll want to do is to take inventory of the items you plan to store. Having a sense of how many items you need to store can simplify the packing process and help you stay organized. Once you have the full list of items that will go to your storage unit, you can begin to visualize how you will organize and sort them to make the process easier.

Pack Up Items for Storage

To ensure a smooth and secure moving experience, it’s important that you have the right equipment. For example, the type of boxes you use to pack up your belongings can make a big difference. Both cardboard boxes and plastic totes can have different benefits. Depending on the type of items you’re packing and the amount, you might need to change which material you use.

For heavier items such as books, we recommend using smaller boxes. Utilizing large cardboard boxes for heavier items can cause your box to break and make it harder to carry. Large cardboard boxes are ideal for items such as clothing or linens that take up a lot of room but aren’t heavy. Some people prefer plastic totes because they can easily transport all kinds of items and are sturdy, long-lasting, and durable.

Label and Organize Your Storage Items

You can label each box by the content or by the destination they came from. It can be beneficial as well to categorize your items as you go along. You can put similar items into the same box, that way you don’t have to go digging for your items.

If you had to play jenga as you were packing up your items and didn’t organize them inside the boxes, no problem! You can simply label the box on the outside. Additionally, when you are unloading your boxes into your storage unit, it can be helpful to have an organization system set up inside your storage unit. Ideally, you could situate the boxes based on their category, or place boxes you know you’ll need access to up at the front.
