Often people have me retrieve items in a storage unit.  Often times the boxes are not marked and the order of the boxes requires one to move all the boxes out. This takes time, energy and effort.

  • Consider making aisles so that one can access boxes with minimal effort and energy in moving the boxes.
  • Mark the outside of the boxes with contents. Do this with colored markers. Some people use name tags with different border colors to designate items by rooms.
  • Create a labeling system and be consistent.
  • Have a clipboard in the storage unit and attach a layout of the boxes and where things are. Update this list as things are removed or added.
