Move It's Tools and Tips
As a Property Manager in Celina, Texas, I’ve encountered many different people who turn to self storage for various reasons. At Move It, we understand how stressful transitions can be, and no matter your unique situation, myself and any of our other Property Managers are here to help. That’s also why we’re here to offer helpful tips and tools to make self storage one less stress in your life.
How You Can Use Self Storage
There are endless opportunities and ways you can use self storage that goes above and beyond just moving. Discover all the different types of storage we offer here at Move It.
- Personal Storage: Whether you’re moving, decluttering, or organizing, use self storage to gain back extra space in your home.
- Business Storage: Store and access your equipment on a daily basis, or house extra inventory including records and files.
- Vehicle Storage: If you’re leaving for an extended vacation, work trip, or simply don’t have enough room at home, store your vehicles and toys with us. We have plenty of room for boats and RVs, too.
- Student Storage: Don’t drag all your items back home with you. Keep everything in a good place over summer or winter break – even your car!
- Military Storage: Whether you’re preparing for deployment or relocating your family, we’re here to help during your transition.
- Climate Control Storage: If you have particularly sensitive items, consider climate control storage to keep your things from being damaged by high temperatures and humidity.
Insider Tips from Move It
There are a lot of ins and outs to self storage, and Move It is here to help with all of them. Here are the biggest pieces of advice I give to renters – whether they’re new to self storage or an experienced pro.
Do Your Research
Look into everything from unit sizing to storage insurance
. You don’t want to end up with a unit that’s too small, or not have all of your items covered. I also highly recommend reading recent reviews of the facility so you can get a sense of customer satisfaction. It’s important to be aware of these things as you’re looking for a storage unit. And, of course, anyone can reach out to me or any of our Move It property managers and we’ll help answer any questions.
Tour the Facility
Once you’ve done your research online, make sure you tour the facility to see what it looks like. Also, look at a few different sizes to ensure you’ll have enough room for your items. This will also give you the opportunity to meet those who work on-site and get a feel for others who rent storage units. Be sure to ask about safety features
and what measures are in place to give you peace of mind. If you get a good feeling when you’re on the property (or even a bad feeling), always go with your gut.
No matter your storing situation, moving items from one place to another can be stressful. That’s why it’s important to plan ahead and take time to consider other aspects and costs. First, once you know what size unit you need, figure out how
you want to store your items. You will want to store things you don’t need as much in the back, and things you need in the front. Second, take care of other details like moving supplies
and a moving truck. At several of our Move it facilities, you can rent a unit, purchase supplies, and reserve a truck
all at once! Finally, make sure your unit is ready before you move your items in. Whether you have hired movers or are moving everything in yourself, having the unit prepared beforehand will help save time and stress.
