Find the Best Storage Service
In order to ensure safekeeping and easy access to your stored household goods, you need to find the best storage service that works for you. In our blog post on Things to consider when renting storage units in Boston, we outline multiple factors that you need to consider when renting your storage space. How much space do you need? How long will you need the storage unit? What level of security do you want for your storage unit? How much access do you need to your storage? Do you need temperature control? How far are you willing to travel to acquire your household goods? What is your budget? You need to keep all of these questions in mind when trying to identify the best storage service for your household possessions.
Organize and Pack Your Items Correctly
Household goods come in all shapes and sizes. It is important to organize and pack your items away correctly to reduce damage and help with ease of access. We mention in our blog post on tips for preparing a move, that you need boxes to store all of your items. Once obtained, it is smart to put heavier items at the bottom of boxes and lighter items at the top to minimize damage. We also suggest utilizing blankets, socks, bubble wrap or other soft material to wrap and stuff breakables, for safekeeping. Lastly, we suggest organizing and labeling each box based on commonalities (i.e. ‘knick knacks, living room, kitchen, tools, etc.)
Organize Your Boxes and Items in the Storage Unit
This is where the labels on your boxes come in handy! Our previous blog post describing how to properly sort your items in storage, we recommend that you organize your boxes based on the labels/categories. That way if you need one or two particular items, rather than rummaging through your entire storage unit to find it, you are able to find it quickly and efficiently. You worked so hard to pack everything away. The last thing that you want is to re-pack everything because you forgot where you put that one item.
