Move During The Holidays Stress-Free With Warehouse Storage

Moving during the holidays can cause an enormous amount of stress. You have to organize a move during one of the most busiest times of year. There is a lot to do in what seems like such a limited amount of time. However, the most difficult part about the move, might be deciding what to do with items you lack space to keep. There are a few tips that might help make your move during the holidays stress-free with warehouse storage.

Create a Plan of Action

The move has to be done and there is no time like the present to get up and make it happen. Make a list of the things that need to be done. Delegate a job to each person who will be helping you with the move. You might have a person in charge of gathering boxes, another in charge of calling the movers, and someone in charge of making sure each room is cleared and organized according to your instructions.

Set a Definite Moving Date

Set a date that you will move out and stick to it. Be sure to notify the utility companies of your plans. If you do not have time, it might be a good idea to have someone in charge of doing this as well. The moving company will arrive on your appointment date, and you want to make sure you are prepared and ready to go. Be sure to have the items that will be traveling with you marked, and if possible already packed.

Utilize Warehouse Storage

There is no need to stress about not being able to take some of your possessions with you.  Cubby Mobile Storage is one of the few companies that will bring the packing and storing to you. Professional packers will arrive at your home, pack up your items you want to keep but can not take with you. Packers will take the items to their warehouse storage location until you are ready for them.

The best part is you don’t have to worry about picking your items up. When you are ready for your personal belongings Cubby Mobile Storage will bring them to you. You really cannot ask for much more from a storage company. To find out more about warehouse storage for your holiday move contact us.

Ten Packing Tips To Keep In Mind For Your Big Move

Making a big move takes its toll mentally, physically, and emotionally. If you’re planning to take the majority of your possessions with you to your new home, packing the right way can save you energy when you arrive at your new place. Check out these packing tips to stay organized and efficient as you pack up.

Pack a separate bag for you day-to-day essentials 

Including toiletries, makeup, underwear, a basic outfit or two, and anything else you use on a regular basis. Plan as if you’re going on vacation for a few days, and that way you’ll know exactly where to find your essentials as you get settled.

Label Crates

Label with two sets of information: the contents in the box, and the room in which the box should go. That way you can focus on one room at a time, which will make unpacking feel more manageable.

Use suitcases for books

The wheels will make the heaviness more manageable.

Use your smartphone’s camera

Take pictures of anything with wires (such as your Television) before you pack it up. Using the photo as a reference will make the set up in your new home much less stressful.

Number your boxes (and suitcases)

By numbering the boxes, you won’t have to worry if there’s one missing– just make sure every number is accounted for!

Check expirations dates

There’s no need to pack Advil or canned beans if they’re expired, so check before throwing food and medication into a packing box.

Dust while you pack

If you take a few extra seconds to dust off the items you’re packing up, you’ll be keeping your new place cleaner.

Staying organized is key to a successful move. There’s no need to get overwhelmed if you’re in control of what’s going on and where all your possessions are.

Warehouse Storage For The 22 Months Americans Spend Cohabitating

Warehouse storage could be the solution for an emerging trend, the longer time period that American couples are spending cohabitating.

Safe and easy storage is good for your relationship and your high school basketball trophies.

Protect your relationship: However long you stay together compared to those CDC figures, you may have a happier home life if you don’t have to argue about whether black velvet paintings of Elvis qualify as fine art, or how many shoes one has to own before it qualifies as a medical condition that should be covered by insurance. We’re hoping that all your dreams come true, but if you decide to split up, your transition may be more amicable if you can get back your rice cooker and futon instead of having to start from scratch.

Staging Your Home For A Sale? Leave The Packing To Us!

Are you moving to the other side of Baltimore or to another state? You’ll need to stage your home in preparation for the house to sell. Staging experts usually explain the basic dos and don’ts on home staging when they consult with you. They generally tell you to load everything that has to go onto a truck and rent a storage unit. They say that with a hidden smirk because they know they don’t have to pack up all that stuff and then unload it into a storage unit. While your mind blanks out at the thought of all those boxes and heavy lifting, why not leave the packing to us?

The basics of home staging are simple. Buyers want to know how much storage is in the house so they’ll know if their stuff will fit in your space. To that end, you will need to empty closets, the garage, basement and attic of its belongings. That alone will give the house an air of roominess that will snag a buyer in no time. In the living room and dining room, take out everything but the bare necessities.

Take down the art work, box up the doodads and most all of the books and DVDs. Leave just enough on the bare minimum of tables and/or shelving units to give the room some color and whimsy. Buyers will mentally place their furniture in these rooms. They will appreciate the lack of stuff but will see your small touches and think their doodads will look wonderful there.

Bedrooms present an interesting arrangement to a stager. There has to be a bed, of course, and some method of storing clothing. Not many people have one each of chests of drawers, dressers and chifforobes in their bedrooms but some do. Kids’ rooms will understandably house toy boxes, bookshelves, desks and some method of storing enough stuffed animals to stock a Toys R Us in addition to their bed and chest of drawers or dresser. All that will have to go.

Buyers need to see if their own kids’ stuff will fit into these spaces. You’ll need to put everything but the bed and one container for clothing into storage. Leave a stray toy or stuffed animal on the bed or dresser to suggest the age of the child owning the room. Give us a call when you’re ready and we’ll do the heavy work for you.

We’ve all seen glossy magazine pictures of bathrooms big enough to land a jet in containing wicker love seats, wicker clothing hampers, shelving units for towels and soaps shaped like hearts and a scale you suspect no one steps on. If you’re lucky enough to have a bathroom into which one of these articles will fit, take it out. Buyers need to see if their own shelving units will fit.

Leave the deck furniture and the children’s play area in the back yard where it is. Nothing snags a buyer faster than an outdoor room or deck. Buyers will see this and start planning their first get-together on your deck. Got a fire pit?  Light it when you know there will be an open house or a private showing. Give them an attractive place in which they’d like to be themselves and they will more often than not make an offer.

That’s all there is to staging your home for sale. Limit furniture and accessories to just enough to impart an idea of space and the house will sell itself. While you’re doing that, we’ll be packing your things into a Cubby unit. They will be stored in the warehouse until you need them. We will then bring them back to you or transport them to your new home. Contact us for the heavy work. We won’t lose one single stuffed animal.

Simplify Your Life With Portable Storage Containers

Like most people, you probably had the best of intentions when you first moved into your home. You were going to keep it organized and never allow a buildup of clutter, but then real life happened. You had a few kids and now your home is bursting at the seams with too much stuff. It happens to the best of us. The good news is you can reclaim your living space without all of the hard work involved in hauling your stuff to a storage facility.

Introducing Portable Storage from Cubby

In the past, Baltimore residents who needed extra storage space had to rent or borrow a truck, load it and then unload it again at an off-site unit. This is a lot of work for people who are already busy. When the time came to move or take belongings out of storage, they had to repeat the process all over again. In observing our harried customers, we knew there had to be a better solution. That is how we came up with the idea for portable storage containers.

When you choose this storage option, we deliver the storage vaults directly to your home. You can rent up to six containers at the same time. This is enough to pack the contents of nine rooms. We also pack your items into the containers and deliver them to our facility. Our associates bring the vaults back if you decide to move or reclaim your items. You can opt to unpack your items yourself or hire us at a reasonable hourly rate to do it for you.

Getting a Free Quote is Easy

If you can’t take another day of feeling claustrophobic in your own home, contact us for a free cost estimate. Just let us know how much stuff you want to store so we can reserve the correct number of portable storage containers for you. We can deliver the containers to any local address.
