Moving is one of the great stress givers in life but a host of units are available to make your preparation for this move smoother. When its time to pack your personal possessions and memories, there are some helpful and useful pieces of advice to keep in mind that can help protect your items, and your back.
Your move date is fast approaching and you have decided that using one of the several units to store your items will make the transition easier, so the next step now is to plan the details. Whether your requirement is short term or long term, you will find the resources you need in plentiful supply.
The first step is deciding the location where you will place your belongings. If you are planning a move across the country, then a location close to your current residence would be the best but if you are relocating across town then you may want to consider a place that is close to your new home. The options in units give you flexibility and choice.
Next, you will need to determine what size container or room is right for you. Sizes range from a small closet to garage sizes large enough for a car or small truck. Height of the ceiling is also a consideration because if you pack wisely, you will be able to stack items quite high and the higher the ceiling, the more you can store in a fixed space.
It can be difficult to estimate the room size you will need when your items are spread throughout your home so it is important to ask about upgrading or downgrading the size of the room with each facility manager. You do not want to be locked into the wrong size and end up paying double of what you should pay.
In order to determine how much you have, pull your possessions out onto the floors of your rooms. If you do not have a lot of items, then you may want to consider placing everything in one room. When you pack, you will want to organize your boxes by fragility and weight. For books and heavier items, pack these in smaller boxes to help dilute the weight. Your move will be difficult if you create large boxes that are far too heavy to move comfortably.
Once you can see how much stuff you have, you will need to purchase boxes. Barrie self storage space units have everything you need to make your move as easy as possible, from boxes and tape to bubble wrap and tie downs. Avoid thin, frail boxes you may find in the back of many stores. They may not be strong enough to protect your items and their various sizes will make storing them difficult.
Packing your boxes correctly may be the difference between opening them in a month or two and finding that crystal vase your aunt gave you intact or in pieces. Barrie rental units pack delicate items together with bubble wrap and newspaper and do not overstuff the box. If this means you will need more boxes, then do not skimp to save a few dollars. Mark your boxes clearly so that anyone helping you on moving day will know what requires extra care.
Being prepared and not waiting until the last minute can mean the difference between a smooth and flawless move and one in which you lose items or worse, break them. Barrie storage units have professionals who can answer any questions you may have about the packing process and are happy to assist in every way possible.
