Packing Tips



October 5th, 2020


Do you need storage near Fort Mill SC? Better Boxes Self Storage has you covered from the storage unit to the boxes and bubble wrap. We offer temperature controlled storage up to 300 square feet and sell storage supplies at our Fort Mill SC facility.

1. Label Your Boxes in Detail

The more detail you put on your boxes when you pack, the easier it will be to unpack. Once you leave your items in a storage unit, you are going to forget which items are in which boxes and where those boxes even are in the storage unit. Labeling your boxes with the room in which the items belong, as well as the contents of the box, keeps everything organized. So when you are looking for your favorite wine glass later, you will be able to find it without a problem.

2. Use Towels to Protect Fragile Items

Bubble wrap and newspapers are common buffers for boxes. But you already have some perfectly good padding laying around. Hand and dish towels are the perfect size to put in between plates and glasses so they do not move around in the box and break. Plus, then you do not have to worry about packing up towels later.

3. Buy New Boxes

Do not take the chance of your items breaking. Note the condition of your boxes before you start storing in them. Is it one you have had to tape up because you have had it for a while? Can it hold more than 10 pounds? Your weaker boxes can still be helpful, but you should only store light objects in them. Leave your boxes that are in better shape for heavier items. If you are in need of additional boxes, stop by our facility! We offer storage and storage supplies at our Fort Mill SC office. We are donating a portion of our October supplies sales to Susan G. Komen for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
