You Can’t Take It With You

granny-2347552_1920You’ve been dreading this moment for a long time. Maybe you’re a grandma or grandpa. Maybe you’re the loyal daughter to amazing, elderly parents, but it’s a stressful time for all (tell your husband to stop smiling; at least wait for them to step through the doors). It’s time to make the move into a nursing home. While these facilities offer great services for the elderly, especially those who need medical help, they might not be so accommodating about space.

Priceless Furniture

There’s no way these homes will have room for every new resident’s favorite furniture piece – it’s just not possible. But why get rid of them? They’ve been wrapped in plastic lining for so long and so well-maintained, and you’re just going to dump them? You can try to sell them, of course, but do you think anyone is going to find these items as significant as you do? You will be lucky to even get half of what was initially paid for these pieces. And what about all the memories?

Speaking of memories…

Photos, Frames, and Albums

There’s no way the home has enough room for all your photos. Sure, there are some albums that can be taken, but not all the frames that have been hanging around every wall in the house. If the photos get sent to family members, how can you make sure they won’t just throw them away or lose them?

Wedding Dresses and Special Occasion Trinkets

Nursing home closets may have space for clothes and shoes, but they may not have room for dresses and memorabilia. Prom dresses, wedding dresses, the quinceañera dress, old army uniforms, and those sparkly date shoes that bring back all the memories of the good times? Where can all of these things go?

Wine

Then there’s also that special wine that has stayed in the fridge or cooler for special occasions. Will the nursing home allow that to come live with you?

How We Can Help

You have many questions, and we have an answer: STORBOX. We offer units from sizes of 5×5 to 10×30, perfect for the smallest collection of photos to bigger things such as furniture. If you need help bringing these items, don’t fret! There are two loading docks and a moving truck for your use when you need help hauling items into the facility.

And for those precious bottles of wine, we offer a wine storage area, “the Wine Grotto,” equipped with biometric fingerprint scanning to keep them safe from prying hands.

When you’re ready, contact us at (626) 407-3429 and learn more about how our specials apply to you.
