The Top Tips for Storing Items for the Long Term

Marketing


The Top Tips for Storing Items for the Long Term Sometimes it’s best to put items into self storage for a long period of time. Whether for the summer or winter season, several months before you transition into a new home, or even years or indefinitely, storage units can alleviate some stress. However, there are a few tips you will want to utilize when storing items for the long term. 1. Decide What to Store and Make a List Your first step should be deciding what to store. To save on space, go through all your items and see if there’s anything you no longer need. Once you’re preparing for storage, go ahead and write a list of all your items. You can even add details such as their current conditions or even take pictures. 2. Pack Properly Make sure all your items are packed in sturdy containers or packing boxes. While you can take a quick trip to the grocery store for extra cardboard boxes, for long-time storage it’s recommended to use professional storage boxes or containers. 3. Purchase Insurance When putting your items into storage for long term, it’s recommended you buy insurance. Sometimes you can purchase insurance when renting a unit as a whole. If this isn’t the case then at least purchase insurance for high-value items such as vehicles or appliances. 4. Have Someone Check on Your Belongings If you’re unable to check on your belongings yourself, you can have a friend or family member check on your items from time to time to make sure everything is fine. 5. Use the Right Storage Service Lastly, you will want to make sure that you use the right storage service. Services like Granite Mountain Storage offer units that are climate controlled.

Moving is a stressful ordeal and often involves storing your possessions for a period of time. Even if you’re not storing your valuables these tips will make moving a little easier, a lot more organized and less stressful. 1. Plan ahead! Don’t wait until the last minute to pack. Start early and pack one box a day in each room. This will help you stay organized and give you plenty of time to label and color code boxes. 2.

Store your boxes and unnecessary furniture in a secure storage unit. This will help make your home show-ready and feel open, increasing the chance of selling quickly, for more money. 3. Announce your move and share your new address with a card to your friends and family. 4. Make a map of rooms and layout where furniture and boxes go. Keep this with your color code sheet and use it to guide and reduce stress on moving day. 5. Take picture of connections on computers, TVs and wifi routers to guide you as you reconnect in your new home. 6. Don’t pay to move or store what you don’t need. Have a yard sale to de-clutter.

Designate an area (i.e. room, closet or out-of-the-way wall) to store boxes as you pack. As boxes are filled, put heavier boxes on the bottom and lighter boxes on top. 9.
