If you are moving during the COVID-19 pandemic, you probably have a lot on your mind. If you do not have the ability to wait until the situation changes, then it is time to create a game plan to keep you from making any potential mistakes. Check out these tips to prevent spreading or catching the Coronavirus during your moving process.
Communicate with Movers
If you are planning to hire a moving company, you will want to find out what their policy is in and how things have been modified to avoid any health risks. Since the virus is known to spread through person-to-person contact, it would be great to know how many people you will be working with and if they will be wearing any gear to protect themselves as they move throughout your home.
Even if you do have movers helping you, it is still important to protect yourself and those around you by wearing masks and gloves. Taking this extra step while maintaining a safe distance of at least six feet will prevent the spreading of any germs.
Use Your Own Supplies
While it may be tempting to borrow boxes and supplies from neighbors and friends, it is best to stay on the safe side and stick to your own belongings. By using items from other people, you run the risk of spreading germs from different surfaces. Avoid this problem altogether by finding out where to get new boxes and supplies.
Get a Self Storage Unit
For those who have to move out of their home quickly, consider getting a storage unit. This is a great quick solution to move your belongings out of your old home and get them ready for their new home, or to stay in the unit where they are.
Lucky for you, we are running a special to help our new and current customers move without stress and guaranteeing minimal contact. Visit our website or give us a call today and we can help you move or send your items to self storage contact-free.
Self Storage – Getting Organized
Getting Organized for the New Year
It’s 2020! A new year, a new decade, and a new opportunity to make some New Year’s resolutions to make some improvements because who doesn’t love a fresh start?
Whether you live in a house or an apartment, we all could use some extra space, especially living in the tri-state area. Unless you are a minimalist with little to no furniture, clothing or other items, chances are you have things that are taking up a decent amount of space in your home. Every once in a while, it is nice to hit the reset button and get organized!
Now for the fun part, how do you actually get started on becoming more organized this year?
It is easy to become overwhelmed and try to avoid having to take that deep dive into determining what is actually being used versus what is just occupying space in your home. You think about how much other stuff you have to do, or where will things go once you start sorting through your belongings.
Stop right now and create a plan first! Carving out some time on the weekend to sort through your belongings is a great way to start. As you go through your belongings, consider making the following three piles:
1) Things you want to keep – This should be the easy part. Set aside the items that you absolutely cannot live without, which are things that you typically use on a daily basis.
2) Things you want to give to charity or throw away – Now this is when the narrowing down process really begins. Chances are you have some clothes and shoes that you have not worn in a month, so that would be perfect for GoodWill, which we can help you with! We partnered with GoodWill so that if you use our StorageBlue NOW service, we can bring your items to storage and drop off any donated items to GoodWill.
3) Things you want to put in storage – All of those wonderful items that you do not quite have space for can come to us! With units in various different sizes, we can certainly find the perfect space for your belongings.
The sooner you begin getting organized, the better! You will not believe how much it can help set the tone to have a more neat, organized and clutter-free year!
Looking for a way to free up space? Well, that is the primary reason most people get a storage unit.
A self-storage unit is a great temporary or long-term solution to storing your possessions. Live a more organized life by managing all your stuff and opening up more space.
Here are three people who are likely to need a storage unit:
Attending a college or university in another state? A storage unit is a convenient space for your belongings that aren’t being used. No need to worry about the hassle of having to bring your stuff back and forth to school each semester when you can just store your things at a facility located near your school.
If the job of your dreams is in another city, make your move a little less stressful by using a storage unit. It is a great resource to use in between moving. While you are finding a home, your belongings will stay safe and sound until you are ready to get settled in.
At the start of a business, it may be hard to find a space that can hold all your belongings. As you continue to build up your inventory and accumulate more products, you will need more space. Using a storage unit will allow you to store your belongings to be used on an as-needed basis.
Overall, having a storage unit can be more beneficial than you may realize! Save money, time, and stay organized by only surrounding yourself with the things you need.
