Should I Rent Storage Before I Move?

We are continuing our series of articles discussing some of the reasons why you may want to rent storage as you plan your next move. We’ve already discussed how a climate controlled storage space may be necessary if you need to make an interim move or plan to downsize. We also covered how an indoor storage space could be beneficial if you want to declutter before your move and/or want to have enough room to better organize your new home. Today, we will look at more reasons to rent storage before your next move.

Security

Climate controlled storage facilities are equipped with security features including cameras and alarm systems.  If you are moving to an area where you do not have a lot of indoor storage space, then you may want to rent storage to keep the items you do not use on a regular basis safe and secure.

Vehicle Storage

If you have vehicles or a motorhome that you do not have room to park at your new home, then auto storage/RV storage is definitely something to consider. Vehicle storage is especially beneficial if you live in an area with a homeowners’ association that has strict rules about motorhomes and extra vehicles.

I’m Planning to Move. Should I Rent Storage?

We are continuing our series of articles discussing reasons why you may want to rent storage as you plan your next move.  Our previous article discussed that if you need to make an interim move, then renting a climate controlled storage space may be necessary. We also covered how indoor storage can be beneficial if you plan to downsize as it will provide an area to store belongings that you are not ready to get rid of or are holding on to so you can pass them down to children, grandchildren, etc. Today, we will look at two more reasons you may want to rent storage.

Declutter

Clutter can drive one crazy!  You are better able to declutter when you rent storage for some of your belongings.  The less you have, the more bright and open your home will feel. This is especially important if you plan to stage your home to attract buyers.

Ability to Better Organize

When you rent storage for some of your belongings, it gives you space to breathe and better organize the rooms in your home.  You may even find it easier to get rid of some of the items you really do not need or use anymore.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
