How to Deal With Overflow Items after a Move
Moving can be an exciting adventure—but it can also be exhausting. Moving often results in overflow items—things that we don’t want to get rid of that don’t have a place just yet. Maybe you need some renovations in your new apartment before your grandmother’s antique couch can come in, or maybe your family photos are taking up too much space in the new garage.
This is where storage comes in handy—storage is a great way to transition after a move by alleviating the stress of finding a new place for everything you own all at once. Here are some tips to help you smoothly store those surplus items after a move.
Start thinking about what items you’d like to put in storage before the move. Organizing your move beforehand will help things run smoothly on the big day. Moving everything into a new home and then deciding what should go into storage afterwards will result in extra trips and expenses. If you have the time, put items in storage before the move—that way, there will be less clutter and one less thing to worry about on moving day.
Choose the Right Size
The size of your storage unit is crucial. It’s important to choose a storage unit that’s large enough to fit everything comfortably. The last thing you want is a crammed storage unit where you have to spend hours digging to find what you’re looking for. At Migson Public Storage, we have storage units ranging in size from 5×5 (25 square feet) to 10×40 (400 square feet), so whether you need to store several large pieces of furniture, or just a few small items, we’ll have something to suit your needs.
Protect Delicate Items
It’s important to consider the specific needs of the items you want to put in storage. Delicate items and special furniture may require more wrapping in order to stay secure. We have a range of packing materials available and a team able to help you properly prepare your items for storage. If your items are properly packed before going into storage, you can rest assured that none of them will be damaged or broken.
