You can leave them with a friend or relative, but sometimes that can be uncomfortable and awkward, especially if you are not sure how long you will be gone or if you are going away for more than a few weeks.

5 Reasons To Use a Self-Storage Unit

Storage


5 Reasons To Use a Self-Storage Unit Compared to renovating existing buildings or renting additional rooms, self-service storage units provide a secure, economical option for people and businesses that want to keep their belongings in a safe location. But in addition to economic considerations, there are many reasons more and more people now use self-service storage units as an extension of their personal or professional space. Here we share five reasons why you could use a storage unit: 1. A Safe Place for Seasonal Equipment 🎃🎄 Individuals or organizations that use seasonal equipment or hardware (such as ski equipment, gardening tools, or camping gear) usually don’t want these things to occupy space in their homes all year long. The self-storage unit allows such seasonal or extra items to be safely stored during periods when they are not required. 2. Moving to a New Home 🚚 Moving to a new location is not always a simple process that can be completed in one day. Delays often happen, and with no backup options, if your belongings are ready but your new home is not yet available, you may be in a real dilemma. Self-storage provides a midway stop where you can store your belongings until you are ready and able to move them into your new home. 3. Downsizing 🧹🧺 If you move into a smaller house, you may not be able to organize all your belongings on time. Although some people decide to part with their extra stuff through garage sales or donate them to charity, others decide to keep at least part of their belongings in lockers. Rather than making a hasty decision you may regret later, it is better to put the extras in a storage unit so that you can organize them after the move. 4. You are a Frequent Traveler 🚍✈️ Frequent travelers may need to get short-term accommodation (for example, holiday villas, residence for short-term work contracts). It may be simply impractical to transfer all their valuables every time they travel. Self-storage units solve these problems by providing necessary ...

Why Organizing Your Garage is The Best Idea Ever?

Storage


Gone are the days when the garage was only used to store tools or cars. This essential space is suitable for everyone in the family and can be used for many different tasks, including home improvement projects, bicycle and car repairs, hobbies, gardening preparations, recycling centers, and more. Regardless of your storage needs, a good organization can help you make the most of your space. It's easy to make the garage a practical and attractive part of your home. Various cabinet configuration options with trendy colors and stylish hardware allow you to create a look that is in harmony with the interior of your home, or you can choose a cabinet with a mixture of laminate and steel to upgrade the appearance. Tap into the full potential of your garage and turn that underused space into a place so organized you’ll be proud to leave your garage doors open. Keep Expensive Items Protected 💎 For such a messy space, the garage certainly holds some expensive things. Bicycles are not cheap, nor are power tools or lawn and gardening equipment. Then comes the most expensive one: your vehicle. With a well-organized garage, expensive things will stay protected. Your car’s paint won’t get chipped from a bicycle falling against it, or from your kids riding their scooter, electric toy car or tricycle into it. How do you protect your car from bicycles, rakes, shovels, and other tall objects that can tip over? Use hooks to lean them against the wall and away from the floor. When belongings fall onto the floor or are scattered in the garage, they’re more likely to be lost or damaged (due to flooding or leaks, getting stepped on or run over). During the process of tidying up your garage, you’ll get rid of toys your kids have grown out of, and you’ll find a safe space for what they still use. If your counter is prone to clutter, choose an elevated cabinet above your workspace so you can easily ...

What's the Best Way to Store Your Winter Clothes?

Storage


What's the Best Way to Store Your Winter Clothes? Summertime is finally here, which means it’s time to put away all your heavy winter clothes. However, unless you have a very spacious closet, it may be difficult to rotate your wardrobe and store out-of-season clothes. Proper storage of winter clothes is essential to a tidy, well-organized space; it ensures that your cold-weather gear is ready to keep you warm when you need it. Prepare Clothes for Storage 🧺 The very first step when you go to put your winter clothes in storage is selecting what you want to keep. There’s no sense putting time and energy into preparing items for storage and then consuming valuable space when you won’t wear the items next winter season (just like you didn’t this season). Donate what didn’t wear while your preferences are fresh in your memory. Next, make sure you’re putting away your winter clothing in its very best condition. Storing clothing with any odors, or stains (even if they aren’t noticeable) will only set them in further, maybe permanently. When you’re done preparing your winter clothes, the only things that will get put away for next winter are the items you use and love, and each of them will be clean and as close to new-looking as possible. Containers Work Best! ✅ While it’s tempting to use cardboard boxes to store winter clothes, they aren’t the best solution. Cardboard is both acidic and susceptible to water damage — it certainly isn’t the best solution for storing your winter clothes in. Instead, opt for clear plastic containers. Storing winter clothes inside sealed plastic bins will prevent water damage and other mishaps. Shoes and boots are also best stored in plastic containers. Make sure they are clean and dry and don’t try to stuff too many into one bin. Use tissue paper or shoe shapers to help your shoes keep their shape. Can Winter Clothes be Stored in a Garage or Attic?💡 Short answer: probably not. You want to store your winter clothing in ...
