Spring Cleaning and Self Storage: The Perfect Pair

401 Storage | April 4, 2023 @ 12:00 AM

The weather is getting warmer and it's time to start thinking about spring cleaning. If you're like most people, your home is probably full of clutter that you've been meaning to get rid of. But where do you start?

One option is to rent a self storage unit. This can be a great way to declutter your home and free up some much-needed space. Plus, self storage can be a temporary solution if you're planning on moving or doing some home renovations.

If you're thinking about renting a self storage unit, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. First, you need to decide how much space you need. You can usually find storage units in a variety of sizes, so you're sure to find one that fits your needs.

Second, you need to decide what type of storage unit you need. There are two main types of storage units: climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled. Climate-controlled units are more expensive, but they're necessary if you're storing items that are sensitive to temperature changes, such as furniture, electronics, or artwork.

Third, you might want to think about how long you need to store your items. At 401 Storage, all of our rentals are month-to-month, so you can rent a unit for as long or as short as you need it.

Once you've decided on the size, type, and length of your storage unit, you need to pack up your belongings. Be sure to label each box with the contents and the date you packed it. This will make it easier to find what you need when you're ready to move your items back into your home.

Spring cleaning can be a lot of work, but it's worth it to declutter your home and free up some space. And if you rent a self storage unit, you can make the process even easier.
