Take Inventory of Your Items
Storing your belongings at a public storage facility is not the same as shoving all of your boxes and bags into a closet and forgetting about them until they are needed. Instead, it’s important to organize and label your items so that you can easily access them at a later date. With that in mind, one of the first things you will need to do before dropping off your belongings is to take a quick inventory. Doing so will help give you a better idea of what size unit you will need for your items, as well as help you sort, organize, and declutter so that you can make your job easier in the future.
Determine What Can and Can’t Go Into Storage
Storage units are meant to be a place where you can store items that you just don’t have room for, but there are certain items that may cause problems. For example, storing perishable foods in your storage unit could lead to a mouse or bug infestation, or it could lead to smelly, moldy food when you finally go to claim it. Other items that you are not allowed to keep in your storage unit include:
- Plants and animals
- Toxic materials
- Fuels /chemicals
As you begin planning to move your belongings into a storage unit, make sure you look over each item to ensure that it is safe to leave in your storage unit. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Homestead Self-Storage for clarification!
