We’ve got plenty of tips to give you this week and it is all because of how versatile our self-storage services can be. Yes, we know that using self-storage may seem like a no brainer, but there are so many nuances to the practice that can increase the overall experience. We happen to know a lot of these small little things and are happy to share them with you.
Transporting your belongings: Bringing along some choice items will make transporting your belongings simpler. Simplicity is the true key to having a better storage plan, so having blankets and tarps on hand will make everything go smoothly. How? Well, by having a blanket, you can lay it out on the bed of a truck to keep your belongings from getting scratched. By using the tarp as a cover, you will be able to guard from unforeseen weather conditions.
Pre-planning your set-up: Figuring out the ways you are going to pack the unit itself can be a tremendous help. Since you already know the dimensions of your unit prior to moving in, you can think about what boxes are going to help you pack it more efficiently. Also, you can better think about where those boxes are going to be in relation to each other so that optimum space is always used.
Sorting your Belongings: Figuring out what belongings are to be donated, thrown out, and stored is crucial. When you start to eliminate the things you do not need, storing the belongings that have an impact on your day-to-day life becomes easier. From there, you’ll be able to figure out what things need to go where, and how to better suit your pre-existing packing and storage plan.
Figuring out the nuanced way you can move, pack, and store your belongings will make for a much better experience overall. Planning is key, but proper execution can make a good plan great. Hopefully these tips are of use to you and you are able to create a moving and storage plan that works best for you.
