How to Pack a Box 101

Here are the basics of packing a box for your move:

• Start with a good quality box and reinforce the box with an extra strip of packing tape.

 • Place a dish towel, small bath towel or bubble wrap in the bottom of the box if packing fragile items.

• Place heavy items in the bottom of the box and lighter ones on top.

• Wrap items with packing paper or bubble wrap to reduce scratching. Do not use newspaper because the ink may rub off on your items.

• Pack your boxes full. Fill extra space with towels, pillows, stuffed animals or crumpled up paper.

• Do not over pack boxes; bulging box sides can damage surrounding boxes and not protect what is inside.

• Finally, label every box with a list of contents.

Remember, the best way to protect your items during a move is to pack your boxes carefully and use the strap system inside your portable storage unit.  If you need some advice, call the UNITS customer care at 414-476-8648.

The price was more reasonable than others, the UNIT was spotless and delivered and picked up when they said it would be and everyone I dealt with from the front office to the driver was incredibly friendly and professional.

UNITS Moved Another Satisfied Customer Using Their Superior Portable Storage Container

Check out what stefaniem78 had to stay about our service and quality on kudzu.com: 
We recently used UNITs to move our entire household. I did a price comparison between UNITS and their competition, and UNITS won hands down. The customer service was outstanding — Janelle was so patient with all my countless questions. JJ was very meticulous and careful when dropping off, picking up and delivering our crate. Our neighbor across the street had the competition in her driveway at the same time as we had our UNIT and everyone commented on how much nicer, sturdier, cleaner and better our crate looked than hers. :)

I would recommend this company hands down. We didn’t have a single casuality during our move. And you couldn’t work with a better company.

If you want a moving experience like this  UNITS’ customer call 1-414-476-UNIT (8648).
