Pre-planning and good organization is definitely the key to getting the most benefit out of your self storage experience. Whether you will need access to your belongings on a regular basis while in storage or not, it is critical to consider the size of unit you will need and plan your storage space layout thoroughly.

For people who need to access to their belongings, review the pricing and think about a slightly larger unit so you can stack your items along either wall, leaving a path through the middle of the unit to walk down to locate and collect the box(es) you

Many of us have had to make the abrupt and unplanned shift to working from home. While ideally a home office should be a separate space, at a minimum it should accommodate a desk and some storage space, and be quiet and comfortable enough to encourage productivity.

2. Organizing for home renovations

The perfect solution – SELF STORAGE.

Over the past year COVID-19 has given rise to more and more people working from home and many more folks have breathed life into small business ideas that have been relegated to the back burner because of past time constraints.

Digital, virtual and traditional businesses are being operated out of home offices and for all practical purposes fancy premises or expensive equipment is not needed. In the traditional sense however, if you offer product that requires a physical investment, it occupies space — plain and simple!

Spring’s not quite upon us so we’re still in for frigid temps, like we have this weekend brrrr, and potentially a slushy, sloppy mess while large volumes of snow melt down.
