Portable Storage Unit Loading Tips

Portable storage units loading tips

Using portable storage units for an upcoming move is an affordable, convenient way to transport all of your belongings from your old location to your new destination.

The keys to efficiently loading up a mobile storage unit are organization and preparation. Create lists within categories, to make sure you have everything you need for packing and securing the items that need to be transported.

While each move is different and requires varying amounts and types of supplies, the following is a list of  essential items needed to load a mobile storage container for your upcoming move.

  • Bubble wrap
  • Bungie cords
  • Dolly
  • Furniture pads
  • Gloves
  • Loading straps
  • Moving blankets
  • Newspaper
  • Stretch wrap
  • Packing tape

It’s always better to overwrap and protect than it is to open the container to find some of your items in disarray.

Maximize the Space

Get creative to maximize the space you are given. Stand your couches on end and save lighter items like linens and pillows for last so you can place them on top of other items. Take apart as much of the furniture and other items as much as reasonably possible to make them fit easier into smaller, more secure spaces.
