Tips on Storing Your Stuff While You Renovate

February 20, 2019

If you are among the droves of homeowners who are looking to renovate their homes instead of buying a new one, or if you just want to upgrade your living space, then you probably are wondering what to do with all of your stuff while work is being completed.

A great way to get your stuff out of the way, prevent a mess, and free up space at the same time is to store them offsite. Every renovation project is different and depending on your makeover plans, it can be much less stressful to place everything in storage for the duration of the work.

Choose Storage Wisely

Just as you give much care and consideration to picking a contractor for your upgrades, you should pay an equal amount of attention to the storage space you plan to use. If you want to avoid problems such as loss or damages, it’s important that you chose a company that is reputable and has strong security measures in place. You should also find a company that has both long term and short term contracts in the event that your work goes on longer than planned. Some storage companies may even offer transportation and packing along with your storage space.

Research Your Space

A simple web search will give you a long list of storage locations that will fit your needs, but take the extra step to research more about each location. Find out the size of storage units available, they types of contracts they offer, their insurance and liability policies and their customer reviews. If you have specialty items such as antiques, you may even need to find a storage company that offers climate controlled spaces. Make sure to take the time you need to find the fit that’s right for you. You can even visit the location to do a walk-through of the facility before making a decision.

Hassle Free Providers

Budget is a big factor when looking for storage space, but make sure that you choose a provider that is suited to your needs as well as your budget. The last thing you want to have to deal with is hassle when it comes to storing your belongings when you already are bogged down with the renovations in your home.

Finding the Space You Need

Whether you’re growing too big for your current home or you’re upgrading your space, it’s easier to find a storage unit than to try to get rid of your stuff. Luckily, there is a big market for personal storage. Obviously, you’re going to look for the best deal that your money can buy, but it’s also important to look at a company’s customer service reputation which is why you should get in touch with Augusta Movers at (647) 783-8730 today to find out how we can help.
