Storage Unit Best Practices

How are some tips on packing your things into storage unit:

  • Don’t wait until the last minute to organize and pick a storage facility

  • Label your boxes individually so you know where everything goes when it comes time to unpack. Stick color coded labels on each side of your boxes to make everything easy to identify (for example, blue for the kitchen, green for the garage)

  • You may want to clean the storage unit before packing. Sweep, wash, consider disinfecting walls and surfaces

  • Design a way to get in and out of your storage unit; don’t just cram everything in

  • Put heavy things on the bottom and lighter things on top

  • Get moving insurance in case of theft or damage while moving to Kelowna. Most insurance companies offer up to 30 days of coverage

  • If you get self-storage, don’t share your keycode or say it out loud in public. A little opsec goes a long way towards keeping your things secure, especially if you’re moving a business or commercial enterprise
