Determining the Right Self-Storage Company

Everyone requires assistance from storage companies at some point or the other whether it is from a business perspective or for personal storage. In any case, here are some effective tips to select a reliable storage company.

1. Location:

One of the most important factors in considering a storage unit is where it is located. The storage facility should be conveniently located close to major freeways or highways and be somewhere in the vicinity of where you live or work (or in between) for ease of access. If you are moving and need short-term storage, consider the advantages of selecting a site that is closer to your old home or business or closer to the new one.

2. Security:

Improvements in technology mean that security should be one of the most important criteria you take into account in selecting where to store your household or business items. The newer storage facilities provide high-tech security systems such as matching your gate access code to you individual storage unit. This means that when you enter the grounds and open the access gate, the same number you use to enter also unlocks your storage unit and then rearms it when you enter your code to exit the facility.

3. Insurance Protection:

Most modern public storage facilities have storage insurance available if you do not already have your items covered under your homeowner's or renter's insurance policy. Although there is a small likelihood that you will ever need it, catastrophic and other unforeseen events can happen.

Important Aspects of Storage Unit Selection

There are many storage units which cater to personal and commercial storage needs. How do you then select storage units that will provide complete protection? Here are some tips.

1. Access Hours

Most quality storage facilities limit access to certain hours of the day. You will want to factor this into your decision so you have maximum access to your unit. Ideally, you should be able to access you unit seven days a week from early morning until well after 5:00 p.m. One thing to keep in mind: self-storage facilities that are open 24 hours are more likely to attract folks trying to live in their unit which is probably not what you want in a secure facility.

2. Pest Management

Depending on where you live, there may be a need for you to inquire about insects, mice, and rat management. Newer facilities tend to have fewer problems with pests but it is still important to ask the facility you are considering what their pest management protocol is.

3. Variety of Unit Sizes | Dubai self storage

If you have a small amount of items you want to store, that last thing you need is a unit the size of a one car garage. Self-storage facilities generally offer a range of unit sizes to their customers for both small and extra large needs such as furnishings for the entire household, auto and boat storage, and business files and supplies.

Things To Do Before Your Movers & Packers Arrive

You have selected a professional mover and packer company to help you with the process of moving from one house to another. However, your task does not end her. In fact your top priority should be to have certain things pre-arranged before the mover and packers’ team arrive at your home. We have listed them down for you.

1. Let go of useless things

Having the professional packers pack things which you won’t even use again is to waste time and money. Remember, your total weight of shipment has a significant role in determining the price you will pay in the end. Hence, it is recommended to keep things you consider as ‘non-essential’ or ‘irrelevant’ separate. They shouldn’t bother you to be moved to your new place. In this way you can fit in all the necessary things without consuming much space and therefore spending less.

2. Avoid carrying things which can hinder your relocation process

There are certain goods that can put your relocation operation in danger. It is better to be safe, always. For instance, professional packers and movers don’t allow harmful elements like corrosives and flammable items. These also include sharp weapons and ammunition, also paint, fluids and chemicals.

3. Create a checklist

A checklist that enlists all your inventories that are going to be loaded into the moving truck will help you check the delivered things against the checklist to identify any missing or damaged material. If anything goes wrong, you can file a damage claim with your mover or an insurance claim with your insurance company.

Your moving day is decided. You’re excited, but in that process it should not happen that you tend to lose your focus. So when to start packing? If you’re not sure about it, know that the earlier you start packing, the better it is. As a thumb rule, we highly recommend to start packing as soon as your date is fixed, well in advance. It’s because many tend to underestimate the time it will take to pack up all the things you want to take to your new home. Here are some tips to make your moving process smooth and hassle free.

Which things to pack first?

Logic says that you should start with the things that you use very rarely. So going by that logic, you should first start with your attic, closet, garage and other such places which you don’t frequent often. This is in line with the idea of packing up all the non-essential things prior to getting your hands on the essential things that you use every day. In this way, you won’t forget to take along everything that is necessary with you.

Which things to pack last?

Here, you concentrate on the things that you use most frequently. These are the items you should pack in the end.

Tip – Keep aside the things you cannot live without for a day and huddle them in separate boxes. These boxes will also hold your important papers and documents. Hence, don’t entrust these to people you don’t know even the moving company you have hired, however reliable and reputable it be.
