How much of your stuff can you stuff into storage pods? Let’s say you’ve run out of room in the garage, attic, basement or spare room. Now what are you going to do with all those things you can’t bear to part with? Learning how to prioritize your possessions and choosing properly sized storage pods, portable storage containers and units and self storage are keys to maximizing your space.
It can be such a daunting task to face up to the amount of stuff you own. From tennis racquets and skis and other sports equipment collecting dust to that framed motivational poster about precision that has somehow lost it’s edge, the best thing you can do is to declutter your house and your life. Storage pods may come in a range of sizes, but being able to determine what is absolutely necessary in your life when packing will be helpful and cost effective when it comes time to store or unpack.
Portable self storage is also convenient for those who are gearing up for a move. Consider using portable self storage pods and self storage facilities when packing up to move.
A good tip is to use an online calculator to determine the cost of your move. You don’t want any surprises when it comes time to rent moving containers and portable self storage.
No one ever said moving was going to be easy. If it was more people would be doing it! When you need to make changes, whether it be to clean up and organize your space, or move across town or country, it’s essential to be equipped with a storage plan, complete with a comprehensive checklist, in order to help make the shift a success.
Begin by prioritizing your possessions. Determine what things you really need or want to bring with you, what can be put into portable self storage containers or self storage and what can be thrown away. If you are moving your family long distance, make sure each family member is included in the moving and storage checklist. Each person’s items are equally important and should be accounted for.
Determine early on what your options are regarding methods of moving and storage. It will be in your best interest to understand which packing and shipping methods are right for you. Understand the costs involved with various forms of moving and storage.
