There are literally hundreds of storage facilities throughout Houston. It demonstrates the need that so many people and businesses have for extra storage space. Too often, we turn our garages, basements and closets into storage lockers. Renting a storage unit allows you to free up all that space. Before you start filling up a storage unit, you want to be sure that you’re maximizing the benefits. Here’s what you need to do:
Double Check the Rate
Storage facilities often offer incentives to get you to rent. This might be offered at a terrific rate that will only last for a year. You need to be clear exactly how much that rate will go up after the year is up. It’s easy to forget about the stuff you put into storage until you suddenly get a bill that is double the rate you were used to paying.
Check Out the Unit In Person
Although you can certainly book a storage unit online, you would definitely benefit by going to see the space for yourself. It would be easy to visualize exactly what you want to put in if you’re standing inside an empty unit. You should also review the facility security measures with regard to access and video monitoring. It may say that everything is state-of-the-art but until you see it firsthand don’t believe what you read online.
Put Together a Floorplan
You have to think about how you going to use your storage unit in terms of pulling things in and out. If there are some items you know won’t be coming out for a while, then they should be in the back. Things like sporting equipment and holiday decorations should be upfront. Everything should be labeled so that you know what is in each box. You don’t want to spend an afternoon opening up all your boxes.
Don’t Pack Rubbish
If you’re putting something into a storage unit is because you want to keep it. That means it has some value to you. You should never just pack rubbish for the sake of getting rid of it. A smarter option would be to turn that rubbish over to Junk King Houston. You can set up a junk removal session with Junk King Houston that will provide you with movers and a truck. This crew will go throughout your entire property to take away all the things you want to get rid of. One call to Junk King Houston will make sure you’re not taking rubbish into your storage unit.
Storage units are big business. It’s also a sign of how much stuff we like to hold onto. A storage unit makes the most sense when you are moving from one place to another and simply don’t have the room to keep extra “things.” Of course, if you’re keeping stuff in a storage unit for longer than six months, it is clear you don’t really need those things in the first place. On the other hand, if you have room in your home you can save money on a storage unit by keeping those unwanted items in your garage, attic or basement. You still won’t be using those things; you just won’t be paying for them either. Wouldn’t it make better sense to get rid of that stuff and avoid turning your home into a storage unit? You can get there with a little help from Junk King.
Junk King are the professional junk haulers who are part of a national chain. As a business, Junk King has been removing rubbish since 2005. Houston residents have been turning to Junk King to help remove tons of clutter. When we say “tons” we mean that literally. As a test, stand in your driveway with the garage door open and just gaze into that space. What do you see that you can get rid of? Exercise machines that nobody uses? A ping-pong table? Boxes of clothes that have been outgrown? Broken toys? That’s just with looking. Imagine if you go poking around in the boxes you’ve got stacked up. You could find that the majority of stuff you have in the garage could be hauled away by Junk King.
That same kind of inspection can be done throughout your home. Keep in mind that whatever you find to get rid of you don’t have to move. The Junk King crew will go to your junk and take it from there.
One of the big benefits of Junk King is something you have nothing to do with. That would be the company’s recycling program. Everything they collect goes through some level of scrutiny to determine if it can be donated or recycled. It’s all part of the Junk King package. Say good-bye to the storage unit and hello to a home free of clutter thanks to Junk King.
Moving out in a hurry or moving into a smaller place are the two most popular reasons for renting an outside storage unit. The idea is that if you can just “throw” everything into a storage unit, you’ll sort it out later. Of course, if you’re moving into a bigger space than the same principal applies. Only in that scenario, you’ll bring all that “extra” stuff with you. What’s wrong with filling up your attic or basement with things you’ll sort through later? Nothing actually unless of course you never get around to sorting through that stuff. Then you’ve created a storage unit in your home. Could that space be put to better use? It could if you call Junk King and let them clear out the unwanted clutter.
When most folks begin going through their home storage unit, they are surprised at what they find. Often, they don’t even remember where something came from. You might be able to find a few items you can put to use right away. However, if you’re holding onto things like an old VCR or outdated printer, then you should really think about getting rid of those things. The less clutter you have in your home, the better off you’ll be.
Some folks have an entire room that has become a storage unit. We’re not just talking about a garage but a spare bedroom loaded with furniture and things no one is ever going to use again. Can you think of better uses for the room? Maybe turn it into an actual guest room for visiting family. It could also become a home office or arts and craft studio. When Junk King is on the job, you’ll have that room back in your control in no time.
The added bonus with hiring Junk King for your junk disposal is that they’re not going to let anything go to waste. Sure, there are some things that are always going to be trash. But things like furniture, clothes, toys and other household goods might have a little life left in them. If that is the case, then Junk King will do everything in its power to get those pieces in the hands of a reputable charity. That way your cast offs can help a family in need. Cleaning out your home version of a storage unit begins and ends with a call to Junk King.
