Exposed: Vital Bin Storage Tools and Supplies You Should Never Forget

599 101413 gs0599Relocation is not always easy, but oftentimes it’s necessary. Whether it’s for a new job opportunity, a bigger home, or to be closer to family, you will probably relocate at least once, if not many times, in your lifetime. If you haven’t moved many times already, and you aren’t a professional mover, relocation can seem stressful—but rest assured, it is an art that can be mastered. Here are the things you need to know, and make sure you don’t forget, before planning your next move.

Storage Bins

Storage bins are a must if you want to plan a successful moving trip. They are a safe and secure place to store your belongings. BINS, located in Columbus, Ohio provide storage bins at affordable prices. When comparing BINS to PODS, we recommend BINS because their high-quality bins (made of recycled materials) keep rain and bad weather out, and are specifically designed to be mold resistant. They can also be ordered in three different sizes to fit your specific needs.

Utility Knife

A utility knife is one of the most important tools because you will need it to unload your bin when you reach your destination. Some items must be tied up inside the bin and the ties will need to be cut. The knife may also be used to create holes for items that need ventilation.


Boxes seem obvious, but they are vital and worth noting. It is especially helpful to have different sized boxes to load larger and smaller items separately. The more organized you pack your boxes, the easier they will be to unpack. You can save yourself a lot of time by properly packing your boxes in the appropriate sizes.


Totes are convenient for packing smaller items in your storage bin. They occupy very little space and are able to hold a large number of items. A good combination of boxes and totes will allow you to sufficiently use up all of the available space in your storage bin.

Don’t let your next relocation be an overwhelming experience. You can save yourself time and money by renting storage bins from BINS, making sure you have these vital supplies, using the appropriate sized boxes and totes, and maximizing the space of your bin.

Awesome Company! When we were looking into portable storage I was pricing out PODS and BINS and we went with BINS because the customer service was unbeatable and the pricing was very reasonable. All my questions and emails were answered right away and they were extremely professional and accommodating. I highly recommend this company.
