What Should I Put in Storage?
Seasonal items are the most common items put into storage in NYC. Your clothing, footwear, and accessories that get worn for a couple of months become easier to manage in a secure climate-controlled facility.
You can also store your seasonal decorations safely when using professional packing and storage services in NYC. Christmas trees, Easter baskets, and fall wreaths are all items that get frequently stored in our facilities.
The equipment that gets used during specific seasons only can save space at home when using a professional facility. That means your skiing gear, baseball equipment, or football pads can have a safe spot without creating clutter.
When the next season comes along, you can swap out the items kept in storage so that you always have what you need.
Small Business Packing and Storage Services
Do you operate a small business out of your home? Many families in NYC use a side hustle to help make sure their bills get paid each month. That means you have the challenge of managing the paperwork and documentation that enables your ability to make a profit.
Did you know that most tax advisors recommend saving seven years of business files in case you need to respond to an audit? Some creditors and insurance companies have even longer requirements!
Those essential documents can take up a lot of space in a small home. You might also have paperwork for warranties, financial or medical records, educational items, receipts, and more.
Professional packing and storage services can help you to get organized while keeping your items in a secure facility. This option can be a long-term solution that reduces the work needed when you have a local move to complete.
Items That Shouldn’t Go Into Storage
Certain safety rules are in place that require specific items to stay out of storage facilities. Food products are the most common issue to consider because of the infestation issue it causes. Rodents can chew through almost anything, create a nest, and destroy your belongings. Anything perishable will eventually rot, emitting a foul odor that can permeate into fabrics and upholstery.
Houseplants are another item that shouldn’t go into storage. Doing so would deprive them of sunshine and water. Certain pests are also attracted to them, creating another set of problems to manage for your belongings.
Hazardous materials are the final issue that shouldn’t go to a professional storage facility. Anything that could burn, corrode, or explode cannot be part of the transfer because of the risks to human health. Expo Movers can provide a complete list of forbidden items to review upon request.
