Short Term Storage Tips
Short term storage is a great solution if you’re moving home from college, moving to a new home and need a space to temporarily put your things before move-in day, or if you need some time to make space for new furniture pieces you’ve acquired. Whatever the situation, Migson Public Storage has the ideal storage units for you to use in the short term. Here are some short term storage tips for our moving and storage professionals.
Use Your Space Wisely
Cramming a bunch of your belongings into a storage unit without any foresight can lead to damage, even if you only need the storage unit for a short period of time. Carefully loading in your items and making sure everything has enough space is the best way to prevent your belongings from incurring any scrapes, dents, or other damage while in storage.
Keep Items Dry
Moisture and water can cause serious damage to your belongings, even over a short period of time. Mold can develop over the course of a few days, so it’s important to keep your possessions dry and moisture-free before putting them in storage. Use moving pads to elevate furniture from the floor, and cover them in protective wrap to prevent moisture build-up.
Make Everything Accessible
If you’re going to be coming in and out of your storage unit frequently, it’s a good idea to lay out your items in such a way that everything is easy to find. If you know you’ll be back shortly to grab a certain item, place it in an easy-to-find spot so you don’t have to unpack your whole unit just to locate it. The more organized you make your storage unit, the easier it will be to empty it when the time comes.
Short term storage is an easy and convenient way to give yourself some extra space when you need it. At Migson Public Storage, we offer a number of short term storage units at a reasonable price. For more information about our units and storage services, contact us today at Migson Public Storage.
