How to Pack a Moving & Storage Container

Plan Ahead

Before packing, take an inventory of everything you plan to pack in the container. Then create a detailed plan for how you want to organize everything. This will help you maximize the available space and make unpacking easier.

Label Everything

It's important to label all of your boxes and items with their contents and the room they belong in. This will make unpacking and organizing your new space much easier. It will also help you locate items quickly if needed during the move.

Consider the Weight Balance

When loading your items into the storage or moving container, it's important to distribute the weight evenly.

Start by placing the heaviest items at the bottom of the container and work your way up from there. Make sure the weight is distributed evenly from side to side as well. This will prevent any shifting during transit, which can cause damage to your items.

Disassemble large Items

Disassemble large items, such as bed frames, tables, and bookshelves, to save space and protect them during transit.

Use Protective Materials

Packing materials such as bubble wrap, packing paper, and moving blankets can help protect your belongings from scratches, dents, and other damage during transport.

You can also store large frames, decorative canvases, or TVs in boxes specifically designed for keeping this items safe.

Wrap fragile items such as dishes and glassware with bubble wrap or packing paper, and use moving blankets to cushion furniture and large items.
