Leave no empty space in a box that is packed. Use old newspaper, packing paper, or Styrofoam pellets to fill the voids so the box is strengthened for stacking.
Use protective bags on mattresses and box springs. Tie bed rails together and put any hardware in a plastic bag and tape it to the bed rails.
If parking an auto, RV, boat, etc., plan to cover it securely to protect it from the elements if you choose outdoor storage.
When storing lawn and garden equipment, drain any fluids prior to storage in order to prevent corrosive damage.
Clean all appliances thoroughly before storing. Drain all water and leave doors slightly ajar to prevent mildew.
Consider standing large pieces of furniture on end. Use plastic, pads, or cloth to protect furniture.
Utilize the height of your container to maximize 'cubic feet' usage.
Heavy items should be packed in small boxes for easier lifting.
Secure the container with a strong commercial grade lock.
Store expensive items toward the back of your space.
Remove table legs when possible to maximize space.
Label boxes on at least three or more sides.
