Whether you’re packing your dorm room furniture away for the summer or storing your grandmother’s antique armoire, there are certain things to keep in mind when you decide to store wooden furniture.
Wood is a sturdy and affordable material for the making of furniture, but it can be susceptible to damage under certain conditions, especially heat and moisture. Because furniture can be made from hard woods like cherry or oak, or soft woods like pine or cedar, it’s important to know what your furniture is made of.

While autumn does arrive late in Southern California, the summer of 2015 is fading and will soon be a memory. It won’t be long before you’ll be packing away your jet ski and camping gear, and breaking out the skis and snowboards.

It’s that time of year. You’re either just heading out of town or just returning from vacation. Wasn’t Paris grand? Or maybe it was a visit to your favorite aunt? How about that class reunion where you were the only one who still had hair?
Well, now you’re back home and unpacked—and tripping over suitcases. Luggage is part of everyone’s life, you just can’t travel anywhere without it. The problem is what to do with luggage when you’re not using it. Many people don’t have an attic or garage to stow away their luggage between trips and it takes up a lot of room. Why not keep it in a nearby self-storage unit?
And what about those vacation clothes? While you could argue that it’s always summer in Southern California, everyone has out-of-season clothes cluttering up their closets. Why not pack those Hawaiian shirts or ski jackets into the empty luggage before you take it to self-storage?

A self-storage unit is an inexpensive and convenient way to store seasonal or unused items. You just pack your stuff into boxes, put them in the unit, and shut the door, right? Sure, you can do it that way, but what if you just have to look at your high school yearbook from 1982. Maybe you want to see if you can still fit into your old cheerleading uniform, but it’s been ten years since you put it away. This is why labeling your boxes is so important. Read the rest »
