Christmas and the other winter holidays are getting closer (hooray!), which means it is time to bring out those holiday decorations. If you will be heading to your self-storage unit at STORBOX or another self-storage facility, there are a few things to keep in mind to make sure that you can get in, get out, and get things back in hassle free.
First, make sure you know your facility’s holiday hours. You don’t want to show up at your storage facility and realize that they are not open. Retrieving your holiday decorations with plenty of time to spare before the holidays will make sure that you don’t get caught in the holiday hubbub on the roads and even at your storage facility. Aside from seven holidays throughout the year (including Christmas Day and New Year’s Day), one of STORBOX’s key features is that we are open seven days a week with a convenient range of hours.
Second, keep track of the items you are removing from your self-storage unit so that you know what is going back after the holidays are over. We’re strong advocates of lists. If you have a list of what is in your self-storage unit, you’ll never have to wonder where something is or if you have a certain item. If you are very organized, you can even map out where everything is in the storage unit so that you can put everything back where it belongs.
Finally, it would be best not to rush back to your self-storage unit once the holidays are over. Let the holiday decorations “rest” in your house a bit and then take them back to their storage space after the holiday rabble rousers are off the roads.
Still Storing Holiday Décor At Home?
If you have a house with plenty of basement and/or attic storage space, and you are able to store everything and still move among the boxes, then you are probably the envy of most other people. Storage space is often hard to come by, especially if you live in an apartment. You may even avoid buying holiday decorations because you know there won’t be anywhere to put them after the holidays. If you’re in such a situation, using self-storage may be one of the best decisions you ever make.
With a designated space (of the perfect size) to fit your holiday décor or anything else you don’t need access to more than a few times a year, you can free up storage space at home for more important things. If you’re still unsure of what to do, STORBOX can help you figure things out. Give us a call today at (626) 793-9888 to speak to our friendly and professional staff.
