There are many reasons to rent a storage device that you might be moving, Downsizing, or renovating your house, for example.

Stack books flat instead of vertically so the spines are not damaged. Stack heavier boxes on the bottom and lighter boxes at the top, with breakable or delicate items stacked on top of everything else.

If you are packing oddly shaped objects, surround them with packing material so the Flat Pack Storage Units does not collapse when stacked. Leave space between piles of boxes so that you may access them more easily later on. Do not pack everything straight against the walls leaving an inch of space can enhance ventilation.
