Spring Cleaning: Some Tips to Help You Through It
It is that time of year again when the sun is starting to show itself again, the rain clouds are disappearing and spring is in the air. It is the perfect time to freshen up your home and make it look like that summer home we all want.
There are the usual things to do like swapping out your wardrobe from your winter clothes to your summer clothes, changing your winter bedding for your summer bedding etc.
But, what about the rest of the house? The best thing to do is to sort everything out into three different categories and arrange these in three different boxes, keep, donate and store.
These are pretty self-explanatory in the first box, put everything you are going to keep, in the second box put everything you are going to donate, this is important as, even though you may no longer need or want these items, this does not mean that nobody else out there can use them. Remember that one person’s trash is another person’s treasure.
In the third box, you need to put in everything you are going to put into storage, remember that there will be a lot of things that you own that you may not need until next winter but that does not mean that you should throw them away, things like heaters, ski gear and all the kids winter toys, in this box you should also put your winter clothes and your winter bedding as you will probably not need them for the next 6 months.
You are now almost there, the finish line is within your sight and all you really need to do now is to decide how you will store all the things that you will not need during the summer. The best option for this is Self-Storage but an even better option is Mobile Self-Storage, you see the difference between the two is basically this, they will both store your goods for as long as you want, but, only a Mobile Self-Storage company will come to your door to pick up your goods and then return them to your home once you decide you no longer want or need storage.
The convenience of having someone come to your door to pick up your goods and then drop them off at the end of your storage period is not the only benefit of Mobile Self-Storage, when you consider that every time you move your belongings there is the chance of something getting damaged, the best way to look after your goods is to minimize the amount of times you move them.
With traditional storage, you have to move your goods at least three times to get them into storage and three times to get them back out, (from your house to the vehicle, from the vehicle to the trolley at the storage facility and from the trolley into your storage space and the reverse when you are vacating the space)
With SHUTTLEBOX Mobile Self-Storage we take the storage space to you. You simply take your belongings from your house and place them directly into the storage space, we then come back and take the SHUTTLEBOX away and store it in our secured storage facility. There is no unnecessary movement of your belongings, therefore minimizing the chances of your goods getting damaged.
– No need for rental trucks or making several trips to a regular storage facility where you may struggle to find a trolley or get stuck waiting for the lift.
