The first thing you’ll want to do is find a suitable storage facility. Neighbors Moving & Storage offers storage services. Our movers can help by delivering your belongings from your home to the storage unit which will save you a lot of stress.
Our storage facilities are clean, secure, professionally managed and climate controlled for maximum reliability. Climate control is important, because many items, from furniture and electronics to wine and documents, can be damaged by heat, humidity or moisture.
If you are storing antiques, expensive furniture or wine, a climate controlled storage facility is a must. Temperature or humidity fluctuations affect the glue in the joints of furniture and the finish. Wine should be kept in a cool, dark room and on its side so the cork stays wet.
Keep in mind, storage facilities do have restrictions on what can and can’t be stored. Boats and vehicles require special storage. Hazardous items, such as gases, flammables, solvents, paint, propane tanks, fertilizers, fireworks, and ammunition are all banned from storage units. House plants and food items are also restricted.
Additionally, you will likely want to avoid storing important documents like birth certificates, stock certificates, land deeds, vehicle titles and passports. These and what you would consider “high value” items should be kept with you or stored in a safe or safety deposit box.
Whether your storage needs are short- or long-term, Neighbors Moving & Storage has facilities that can help.
