Storage for When Family Moves In
Are you in thinking about having your family come to live with you? Many people like to have their family close to them especially, in the case of aging parents. As our parents age, spending more time together becomes a natural instinct. It’s also convenient to have them nearby in case they need help organizing their affairs and for any additional support. In the same light, it’s especially helpful to have your children’s grandparent(s) around if you have young kids that need to be looked after. Here are a few things to think about before your family moves in!
Clear out spaces
Little spaces can do big things – if you can even see the space, that is! It never hurts to do an annual clean out especially if you’re planning on having some permanent guests. Take the time to assess which room in the home will work best for your parents (are they mobile? how do they do with stairs? Is the room properly insulated?), and then make adjustments to the room to ensure their comfort.
Put items into storage
If you want to maximize space, de-clutter and also make room for family (triple threat!), think about putting your items into storage. It’s a cost-effective way to store things you don’t use every day, which is safe, secure and easy to access.
Making room has never been easier. We have storage locations that are peppered around the Greater Toronto Area and offer moving services to help you put your items away safely.
Whether your family decides to stay permanently or for a length of time, moving your items into the storage is the best way to ensure that your items are kept safely and in an organized manner. Need storage solutions? Consider renting a secured unit with us at Migson Public Storage.
Don’t be that subletter: put your items into storage
We all know a person who has decided to change their life path abruptly to gain a sense of direction in their lives. Many people quit their jobs, leave school and just need to experience the world in a different way through traveling or going abroad. In this scenario, subletting a room or an apartment is the best way to make sure there’s a place to come home to. This is the time to consider putting items away into storage. Here are a few reasons why.
No one likes to move into an apartment full of another person’s stuff. Sure, it’s great to move into a furnished place – but if there’s no access to closets and there isn’t any room to make a home, it can be a stressful situation for the new tenant. Don’t be that subletter! Create space for the new tenant by moving your items into storage. Box up anything that you aren’t taking with you– yeah like that shoe collection – and put it away safely and securely into a storage unit until you get back.
Keep things clean
Removing items and putting them away also gives you a chance to clean the apartment from top to bottom before the new tenant arrives or for any last minute renovations. It’s important to take care of these things before you leave for a long time to ensure the health and safety of the new tenant!
Safely store items
Think about it – you wouldn’t want someone messing around with your personal items. Important documents, electronics, your expensive art supplies – these are all things that should be put away to avoid any potential situations that could come up while you’re away. Even if the new tenant seems trustworthy, you may as well remove the risk factor of having your items misused or damaged or to help you have a sense of organization when you get home.
