Sometimes the transition to a new home can be a hassle. There a lot of items to consider the logistics of, and some things you just don’t need right away as opposed to others. So what can you do with these extra goods in the mean time?
There are quite a few things to consider when you get a storage unit. We’ve covered some tips for first time renters recently, but now we’d like to give you some tips on using your unit safely. Even long time renters might pick up a thing or two by reading this!
1. Organize Your Storage
When it comes to putting your belongings into a storage unit make sure to organize them in a way that makes sense. Most storage unit accidents happen when tenants are searching for belongings they have misplaced. Put the things you’ll be taking out soon or regularly in the front. There’s no point in creating more work for yourself by burying things you’ll need tomorrow under things you probably won’t touch for months.
2. Don’t Play Tetris with Your Belongings
While you want to get the most bang for your buck with your storage unit you don’t want to stack your belongings too much because this creates a danger to you and your items. If you stack your items to high or tightly it will create a problem when you need to access them. Make sure that if you do need to stack your boxes or belongings they are secure and stable. No one is happy when a box avalanche occurs.
3. Read the Rules
Storage Facilities have rules for a reason, they are to keep all of the tenants belongings safe. Typically these rules will be what you can and can not store in a unit. Some things you can’t store are hazardous materials, such as flammable or radioactive materials, and perishable foods. If you’re not sure what you can and can not store make sure to ask someone that works at the facility. Storing unsafe materials in a unit is not only unsafe for your own unit but possibly for the units around you as well.
4. Insure your Belongings
While storage facilities do everything that they can to make sure your belongings are safe accidents do happen. Make sure that you know exactly what is in your unit and make sure that you have enough insurance to cover everything. Most facilities require you to have insurance on your unit and a lot of home owner’s insurance policies already cover storage units.
Following these tips is a good start to making sure that your belongings are safe. If you can think of any other tips for storage safety let us know in the comments below!
When you’re living far from home, it can be a hassle going back to get the things you left behind. Sometimes the trips can be over 8 hours and it just doesn’t seem worth it. And when it’s not worth it, you might just end up buying the items again. But what if the items are expensive, like a Television set? You might want to pocket that money and invest in something more long term instead.
Fall is here and that means it’s officially holiday season! Halloween is just around the corner and then it’s Thanksgiving followed by Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year’s! Of course, along with all of these holidays comes plastic Santas, fake cobwebs, and giant turkey centerpieces. Lots of people have a tendency to go a little crazy when it comes to holiday decorations and it can get overwhelming pretty fast. If you’re someone who covers your lawn with inflatables and plastic lawn ornaments then you might want to consider getting a self storage unit for the off season.
There are many reasons to live an organized life. Without organization, the mind becomes cluttered as well. You are constantly trying to get your thoughts together when you simply have too much on your plate. The state of your surroundings could easily be a reflection of the inner workings of your mind.
The problem with having a home is the amount of clutter that comes with owning one. When one has a family, a full time job, and other preoccupations taking up a majority of their time, organization doesn’t always make it to the top of the list. The consequence of this neglect is the mess that builds up. When your abode becomes more jungle than home, all it does is add to all of the other stress already place. But how does when avoid this situation when allocated only a finite amount of space?
