Subletting Your Place While Going on a Trip – But What About Your Stuff?

By Storbox Self-Storage on December 29, 2016 - Comments off

sublet-apartmentThere are a lot of reasons you may be temporarily leaving your place; perhaps you’re taking an extended road trip, you’re going to be away on business, or you’ll be going on tour for awhile. You stand to save plenty of money (which can make your trip much easier) by using services like “airBnB” to sublet your place while you’re gone. However, this also means having strangers stay in your house. Though they are vetted, they could pose certain dangers to your property.

If you have items of value in your home, expensive and/or sentimental, you’re leaving those items at the discretion of whoever is staying over. Even if your houseguest seems trustworthy, accidents can happen, and you could come back to a place that could be drastically different than when you left, at your expense.

I’m a Musician – How Do I Keep My Gear Safe?

By Storbox Self-Storage on December 27, 2016 - Comments off

instrument-storageIf you’re an amateur or professional musician, you’ve probably heard the horror stories; gear being stolen, or instruments being damaged, or even destroyed due to the way they’ve been stored. Instruments and other gear can cost more than most cars do, which is why storing them safely can be so crucial. Whether it’s having to purchase additional airline seats to travel with larger instruments, or having family members “baby-sit” instruments while you’re away on vacation, the fact of the matter remains the same – your instruments are important, and storing them is definitely something you have to deal with on a regular basis.

The conventional aspects of storing your stuff in an exclusive backstage area, or even in a locked van have been proven to be ineffective, not to mention belongings being stolen that are virtually irreplaceable. Even when it’s guarded by a band mate or staff member of the venue, these tragedies happen all the time.

By Storbox Self-Storage on December 23, 2016 - Comments off

holiday-sweaterThere has been a growing trend over the past few years when the holidays come around, and that is, the resurgence of the “ugly Christmas sweater.” Many people at office Christmas parties, and family holiday gatherings everywhere enjoy sporting these fashion relics. However, you’ve been stocking up on Christmas sweaters before it was cool, and now you have enough to wear a different sweater everyday throughout December. The downside of this is that your traditional non-holiday wardrobe is now being overtaken by all these holiday sweaters. What are you supposed to do?

Santa’s Sleigh of Storage

By Storbox Self-Storage on December 20, 2016 - Comments off

santas-sleighEvery Christmas, Old Saint Nick relies on his magic sleigh and eight trusty reindeer to help deliver gifts to children all over the world. This year however, Santa has hit a bit of a conundrum. His sleigh seems to be at capacity with gifts and can’t fit anymore. What is he to do with all those extra gifts that are supposed to reach all the good girls and boys? Well luckily, Santa is ALWAYS prepared. And how he prepared for this instance was to have a reliable storage unit over at STORBOX to hold those gifts. Once he clears enough gifts from his sleigh, Santa can conveniently swing by his handy storage unit to gather more gifts to leave under the children’s Christmas trees.

When delivering as many gifts as Santa does, having a helpful organization system in place is preferred. So how does Santa Claus organize his deliveries? Here’s how:
