How to organize a storage container. Now that’s a really good question Billy and the truth is it really depends on the use you’re going to have for that storage container. Let me explain. If you’re moving from one location to another and all you need with the container is to move your stuff from one location and unpack them at the next, then there are certain tips that will be very helpful for you in this case. Number one, heavy items in the back, heavy boxes on the bottom. Obviously you don’t want to crush anything with anything heavy on top and you want to be able to unload the heavy stuff at the end of your packing. Number two, whatever you’re going to need first make sure you load it last. Obviously when you get to your final destination there are things that you’re going to need to access as quickly as possible for your move so make sure you load them last so they’re right on the front when you open your container. So these things can be like your tools, toiletries, maybe cleaning detergents, anything you know you’re going to need for use. Make sure that it’s accessible to you. Number three, you want to pack everything tight and secure. Make sure that you tie things down if they’re going to move. Avoid all shifting during transition because this can obviously harm your belongings so make sure you got everything down. If the container comes with d-rings inside, tie that as tightly as you can. Make sure nothing moves during your move. Now in the event that you’re renting a storage container for a longer period of time, meaning you’re going to use it for a while for a longer term and you do need access to retrieve stuff or to put stuff in, it’s a whole different set of tips. Number one, when you’re packing you want to make sure you have very clear labeling on everything. Make sure you have big old stickers right with the big fonts that you can tell what you’re looking at right away in your storage unit if you want to take something out. Number two, again if you have frequently used items, stuff that you know you’re going to be taking out and bringing back in more, make sure that you’re strategically placing them somewhere where you have really great access to them and can pull them right out no problem. And number three, in this case when you’re storing for the long term you don’t want to pack everything up tight but actually the other way around. You want to leave pathways and clear ways throughout your stuff so that you can walk inside and view all your items, be able to retrieve whatever without unpacking the whole container. So Billy, as I said the way that you organize your storage container really depends on its use and how long you need it for.
