What is Self Storage?

 

More and more people today are finding it hard to manage the space they rent, own or lease and are turning to self-storage as a solution to cluttered personal and business lives. Whether you’re looking to store just a few items, archive your business paperwork or put most of your possessions in a safe place for a few weeks, months or years this could be a cost-effective and flexible solution for you.

So, just what is self-storage? Self storage offers both personal and business users a storage solution that they can basically control themselves. Similar to other traditional storage methods, self storage allows you to rent storage space where you can keep your goods and belongings in special facilities. Don’t rely on removal companies and large storage organizations to store on your behalf and play by their rules with limited access, no flexibility, long-term contracts and high charges. With the advent of self-storage, you’ve been given a lot more choice.

So don’t wait any longer. Contact your local self-storage facility and ask them about their prices, deals, and packages.

Maintaining Furniture in Self Storage

 

In your search for a self-storage facility, visit the storage facility you have chosen to take a tour before signing a contract. Look for wide doors and secure walls between lockers and make sure there are no signs of water damage anywhere in the building. Moisture is the number one cause of damage to stored furniture, so we are going to take every precaution to keep our items dry.

Have plenty of thick plastic sheets on hand, such as the kind used as vapor barrier in building construction (you can find a roll in any hardware store). These will be laid on the entire floor area of the storage area before any furniture is added to keep moisture and humidity from the concrete, which could cause mold growth, away from your items. Setting your furniture on top of wooden pallets will also help to keep moisture away and allow the items to breathe.

Call your insurance company for a quote on a protection policy for your stored furniture. Most storage facilities offer very little in the way of compensation or liability should your belongings suffer any damage in storage.

Before You Move

If you’re moving, then you no doubt have many things on your mind. But preparing for the physicality of the move can be as important as the move itself. Being prepared helps ensure an efficient and organized move and will keep you in a good mood. These items are things people typically neglect or forget altogether until they are on the road. By using this list you will be on top of those small things that can sneak up on a family who already has too many things to be mindful of during their move.

Grocery Store: Don’t go to the grocery store for anything other than essentials; begin paring down your home food supply.

Maps: Gather maps that will get you where you need to go.

Drive the Route: If you are doing an in-town move, drive the route first to see if your truck will have clearance issues.

Road Construction: Call/search the web to find out if there will be construction on the roads you will be traveling.

Foods to Pack: If you are moving yourself, pack foods that have high-water content like grapes, oranges, apples, etc. These foods will keep you hydrated so that you don’t have to drink so many liquids. This will reduce the number of times you will have to stop for restroom breaks.

Car Entertainment: Bring games in the car so family and children can entertain themselves.
