Summer Self-Storage Checklist

Photo: Ethan RobertsonThe first day of summer will arrive before you realize it. In Hampton Roads, we can (hopefully) look forward to sunny days and clear skies and few worries. If you have a self-storage unit at our Chesapeake facility, you can rest assured that your items are safe. Nonetheless, it never hurts to check on your inventory a few times a year to make sure everything is in order. The change of season is a great time for a unit inspection.

Here are a few things to keep in mind as you visit your storage unit this summer:

Dress Right

As you plan your visit to your self-storage unit, it’s a good idea to dress appropriately in the event you decide to move things around or out of the space. Wear comfortable clothing and closed-toe shoes in case of heavy lifting, and you might want to bring a pair of moving gloves just in case. 

Make Room

If your unit appears a bit cramped, this is a good opportunity to rearrange some of your items and maximize your space. You may not have anything more to add to your storage, but it helps to have a space prepared in the event you need to bring something over in the future.

Clear Away

While inspecting your inventory, you might see a few things you no longer need or wish to keep. If that’s the case, take them with you when you leave for donation or disposal. Self-storage is handy for keeping the things you want and intend to use in the future. Holding onto outdated or unusable items is a waste of space. 

Enjoy Summer

A climate-controlled self-storage unit with a secure lock gives you peace of mind. Knowing your valuables are safe allows you to enjoy the rest of your summer, and at Eden Way Storage Center we work to keep your belongings in a safe environment.
