- Moving is never an enjoyable task. You soon realize you have accumulated a lot more items over the years that you thought. To help you ease the moving process we at Logan Self Storage can provide you with a storage unit you can rent to keep your items safe from harm and lighten the moving load. We have also provided some steps you should consider taking to make the moving process a little easier.
- Have a Plan
- The best way to make the moving process less stressful is to make an organized plan. You should start planning your move at least a few months in advance. Take this time to research moving companies and purchase boxes and moving supplies. Call up your friends and family to see if they can help you in moving most your boxes and furniture on moving day. Packing up the items you don’t use on a day to day basis ahead of time can also ease the moving process. Once you have a plan in place you will find that the majority of your stress is gone.
- Packing up your home provides you with the perfect opportunity to sort through all of your belongings. Sort your items into separate piles of what to store, keep, toss, or donate. The goal is to move with less than you started with so you can have a clean and organized home to move into. The less you must pack, the easier it will be to move from one home to another. For the items you are choosing to place in storage, you can trust Logan Self Storage to provide you with a storage unit you can rent that will keep all of your precious items safe and secure.
- Packing Supplies
- To protect all your items during your move you will want to invest in the proper packing supplies. Such packing items include small and medium sized boxes, packing tape, bubble wrap, packing blankets, and markers for labeling. Utilize what you have by packing non-fragile items in duffle bags, suit cases, and storage totes. It is always wise to take the time to properly pack all your valuables to make sure nothing is damaged during transit.
- Pack Smart
- To make the moving process even easier you will want to pack smart. Pack one room at a time and label everything. Make sure you don’t overfill the boxes. Making the boxes too full and heavy can cause damage to your items and yourself if you aren’t careful. Take the time to properly wrap all of your fragile items in bubble wrap to reduce the risk of breaking.
- Making a plan and sticking to it will help you move all of your items with ease. Having some of your items you just don’t need every day placed in a rented storage unit at Logan Self Storage will help you even more. Call us today to learn more about our facility.
