We’re Moving. Should I Rent a Storage Space?

We’re Moving. Should I Rent a Storage Space?

Moving is often a stressful process. Many people find they never knew just how much “stuff” they have until they start packing for a move. One way to ease the stress of a move is to rent an indoor storage space to help you organize and store your belongings.  Our next series of articles will cover some of the reasons why you may wish to rent storage as you begin to plan your next move. Let’s get started:

You Will Have an Interim Move

No matter how hard we try, there are times when an interim move just cannot be avoided.  Perhaps you are building a house that will not be ready by the time you close on your existing one. Or perhaps you have an offer on your home but haven’t found another and will need to make a transitional move. Whatever the case, a climate controlled storage space can hold any or all of your furniture and belongings during a temporary move.

You Plan to Downsize

If you plan to downsize, then climate controlled storage facilities can alleviate much of the stress associated with trying to figure out what to do with the belongings that you don’t want to get rid of or throw away. An indoor storage space is also ideal if you are downsizing but still want to hold on to some items for your adult children who may not have room for them at their current home/apartment.

Our next article will discuss more reasons to rent storage before your next move.

Why Should I Utilize Climate Controlled Storage Facilities for My Small Business Inventory?

Climate Controlled Storage Facilities

Savvy small business owners are reaping the benefits of utilizing climate controlled storage facilities for their small business inventory. Our next series of articles will outline some of the reasons why you may want to consider renting indoor storage space for your business.

Affordability

You can save a lot of money when you rent storage for your small business inventory. When you store your inventory at your location or even in a separate warehouse, you not only pay for the extra square footage but also insurance, heating/cooling, security, pest control, electricity, and more.  Additionally, if you have inventory on pallets that require a forklift to move, now you have the added cost of buying/renting a forklift and hiring a certified forklift operator.  Storage rates for climate controlled storage facilities are very competitive and can save you a lot of time, money, and hassle over the long haul.

Flexibility

When you rent storage from a reputable provider such as Climate Masters Indoor Storage, you can take comfort in the fact that we are flexible with your needs. If you find your inventory requires more storage space or less storage space, we can accommodate this by offering you a unit that is a different size. It is much more difficult to scale your needs when you are storing inventory in an on-site storage space that is also utilized for other purposes.

Seasonal Storage: Summer & Fall

Seasonal Storage: Summer & Fall

We are continuing our series of articles discussing seasonal storage. Our previous article provided some ideas on the types of items you may want to place in your climate controlled storage unit and vehicle storage facilities during the winter and spring months. Today, we will cover some thoughts on summer and fall storage.

Summer Storage

Let the summer fun begin! Now is the time to place your boat covers, RV covers, and pool covers in your indoor storage space. If you are considering purchasing a boat, motorhome, jet ski, or another type of recreational vehicle, you may want to consider storage facilities that offer RV storage/auto storage/vehicle storage options.

Fall Storage

Ahhh, the crisp cool air of fall is something many people look forward to after a long, hot summer. This is the time to consider decluttering your garage and home by placing beach gear, wake boards, water skis, hoses, sprinklers, and other items commonly used during summer months into your storage space.

Seasonal Storage: Winter & Spring

Seasonal Storage: Winter & Spring

Placing seasonal items in storage facilities offers an ideal way to declutter your home throughout the year. Climate controlled storage space is perfect for items you want to keep protected from extreme temperatures and/or humidity. Vehicle storage can help make more room in your garage or driveway. Our next series of articles will take a look at some of the seasonal items you may want to consider placing in your storage space.

Winter Storage

As the cool temperatures of fall usher in the cold temperatures of winter, you may want to consider swapping out some items in your climate controlled storage space.  The cooler weather means that grass will go dormant, so you probably won’t need your lawnmower, edger, or weed whacker until spring.  You may also consider decluttering your house by placing recreational items such as canoes and kayaks in your indoor storage space. And, you may even consider placing your motorhome in RV storage and boat/jet skis in vehicle storage for the winter.

Spring Storage

As the weather warms, you can begin packing up your bulky winter coats and other cold weather clothing and placing them in your climate controlled storage space.  Winter décor, space heaters and other cold weather related items can also be put in your indoor storage space until next season.

Our next article will provide you with ideas of items you may want to rent storage for during the summer and fall.

Mistakes to Avoid When You Rent Storage

Rent Storage

We are continuing our series of articles on mistakes to avoid when you rent storage. Our previous article discussed the importance of securing a climate controlled storage space vs. considering outdoor storage facilities.  We also covered why it is necessary to select the proper size unit beforehand.  Let’s look at a few more pitfalls to avoid.

Failing to Label Boxes

When you place your belongings into your climate controlled storage space it may seem like you will be able to easily remember what is in all of the boxes. However, as time passes, you would be surprised at how easy it is to forget. When you pack your indoor storage space, be sure to clearly label boxes with the contents and make sure the boxes are stacked so you can easily see the labels. You will thank yourself for doing this when it comes time for you to find something months down the road!

Not Getting Rid of Items You No Longer Need

When you have a climate controlled storage space, it’s easy to place items you no longer need into your indoor storage unit vs. getting rid of them. Don’t rent storage for items you no longer use or care about. Use your climate controlled storage space for the items that do matter such as antiques, heirlooms, collectibles, furniture, etc.

Climate Masters Indoor Storage has affordable storage rates at our conveniently located storage facilities in Daniel Island, Summerville, and Hanahan.

Common Mistakes People Make When They Rent Storage Space

Rent Storage Space

If you plan to rent storage now or in the future, there are some tips to keep in mind to help ensure you get the most out of your storage space.  Our next series of articles will cover some common mistakes people make when they rent storage. Let’s take a look:

Not Getting a Climate Controlled Storage Space

When you rent storage, you should definitely consider an indoor storage space. Temperatures in an outside storage space can reach above 100 degrees in the summer and drop to near freezing in the winter.  The humidity in South Carolina is also a factor.  Extremes in temperature and humidity can wreak havoc on furniture, photos, electronics, boxes, and other items you may keep in storage. While storage rates for a climate controlled storage space are higher, it is well worth the investment to preserve the integrity of your belongings. 

Selecting the Wrong Size Unit

It is important to know exactly what you plan to keep in your storage space and then determine the proper size unit for your needs.  Storage facilities have units of varying sizes.  If you choose a storage space that is too large, you are wasting money paying for space you won’t use.  If your indoor storage space is too small, you will likely need to spend time moving your belongings to a larger unit. Climate Masters Indoor Storage has a convenient storage estimator to help you determine the right size storage space to fit your needs.

Our next article will discuss more mistakes to avoid when you rent storage space.

How Do I Remember What is in My Indoor Storage Space?

How Do I Remember What is in My Indoor Storage Space?

We are continuing our series highlighting different strategies designed to help you remember and easily locate items you have placed in your climate controlled storage space. Our previous article covered the importance of clearly marking your boxes and developing a detailed inventory sheet.  Today, we will look at two more ideas to consider.

Take Photos and Videos

Taking photos and videos of the contents of your indoor storage space is an excellent way to document exactly what you have in storage, how it is packed, and how much space you have left for additional items should you need it down the road. Photos can also be used to accompany items listed on your master inventory sheet. Videos are a great way to quickly locate items housed in your climate controlled storage space.

Create a Visual

Some people like to create a visual such as a map or diagram of what they have in their climate controlled storage space and how it is placed. This helps them quickly locate particular items they need to access. Maps and diagrams are especially beneficial when you have a particularly large indoor storage space with numerous boxes and items that may be perfectly stacked but hidden from plain view.

Remembering What You’ve Put in Your Indoor Storage Space

What’s What? Remembering What You’ve Put in Your Indoor Storage Space

You may think that you will remember what you have and where everything is located when you first move items into your climate controlled storage space. The truth is, over time, most of us forget. Out of sight is out of mind. That is, until we realize there is something we need then we head over to the storage facilities where we rent storage only to open our indoor storage space and look at the contents with a blank stare. Wondering where you put something after the fact is very common. The good news is that there are some proactive steps you can take to help ensure you remember and can easily locate items in your climate controlled storage space.  Let’s take a look:

Mark Boxes

It is a good practice to clearly mark your boxes with what is inside of them before placing them in your climate controlled storage space. Try to write legibly and list the main items inside each box so you will be able to easily locate them when needed. Some people color code boxes with labels, colored markers, and even colored packing tape (i.e. green for kitchen items, blue for electronics, red for photo albums, etc.) When stacking boxes in your indoor storage space, be sure that the label/content markings are facing outward and can be seen.

Make An Inventory Sheet

An inventory sheet can be a life saver when it comes to locating a particular item inside of a packed climate controlled storage space. You can do this using a spreadsheet or even some colored pens and paper.  Be sure to list each item and box, as well as contents and corresponding color code.

Our next article will cover more tips to help you easily remember and find items in your climate controlled storage space.
