College Students and Climate Controlled Storage

College Students and Climate Controlled Storage

Many college students rent storage to accommodate their unique needs while away from home. They may live in a dorm or apartment that only has room for them to bring a few essential personal items from home. When this occurs, climate controlled storage can ease the stress of some of the issues college students face when they go off to college. Today, we will look at two of the primary reasons why renting an indoor storage space is a must for some college students.

Moving In Between Terms

Some student housing and apartments have “move-in” and “move-out” dates that correlate with the college or university. If you plan to attend the spring semester and fall semesters, but want to go home for the summer, you may be obligated to move out. If this is the case, then a climate controlled storage space allows you to place your belongings in a safe and secure area in between terms.

No More Room at Parents Home

Often times, when the last child leaves the home, parents are ready to downsize. This means that there may no longer be room to store the items their children still have at home. When this is the case, then climate controlled storage space is an excellent solution.

Climate Masters Indoor Storage offers affordable storage rates and has three convenient Lowcountry locations: Hanahan, Summerville, and Daniel Island. Our Summerville and Hanahan locations also have vehicle storage/RV storage/auto storage available. We have varying sizes of storage space to accommodate your needs.

Moving Items to Climate Controlled Storage During a Home Renovation

We are continuing our series of articles discussing strategies to consider when moving household goods to a climate controlled storage space during a home renovation. Our previous article covered the importance of deciding exactly what items you need to move, purging and getting rid of items you no longer use and/or need, choosing the proper size indoor storage space, and preparing items for storage. Today, we will look at two more tips to consider.

Make an Inventory

Once your home renovations begin, things might get a bit crazy. It is a good idea to put together a comprehensive inventory list of everything you plan to store in your climate controlled storage space. This will help ensure you know exactly where everything is and decrease the chances of items getting lost or misplaced.

Pack the Unit with Access in Mind

When you pack your climate controlled storage space, make sure you place the items you need to have ready access to in an area that is easy to get to and navigate. You don’t want to unpack and re-pack your indoor storage space every time you need to access an item.

Utilizing Climate Controlled Storage Space During a Home Renovation

If you are considering home renovations either now or in the future, this series of articles is for you. Whether you plan to do the renovations yourself or hire a contractor, the process can cause quite a mess. Often times furniture, electronics, and other items need to be moved somewhere where they will be out of the way and free from dust and debris. Where to move them can present a challenge, which is why some people choose to rent storage during their home renovations. Let’s take a look at some helpful tips to consider should you choose to rent storage.

Decide What Items You Need to Move

The first step is to decide what items you need to remove from your home during the renovation. Some items may be able to be temporarily placed in other areas of your home, but others may need to be moved to a climate controlled storage space until the renovation is complete. What gets moved will depend on the type of renovations you are having done and how much space you have in other areas of your home. Once you make a list of what needs to be removed from your home you will have a better idea of the job ahead of you.

Now is a Great Time to Purge

If you have furniture, electronics, or other items that you no longer need or use, now is the perfect time to get rid of them. It’s not worth paying to store items in storage facilities if you plan to get rid of them later. Once you decide what you want to keep and place in a climate controlled storage space, you can then donate, sell, or throw away the items you no longer want.
