Staying Safe While Using Your Storage Unit

After I started using my storage unit to house extra business supplies, I realized that there were a few precautionary measures that I needed to take. In addition to keeping pallets from being stacked too high and installing lighting to avoid trip and fall hazards, I also asked the management team to install a light outside of the unit to fend off intruders. I felt silly at first when I asked for the changes, but they made a big difference when it came to my overall comfort at the facility. This blog is here to help keep you safe, so that you can store without being nervous or damaging your property.


Moving Into Your First Apartment: Three Ways A Moving Company Can Make Your Move Easier

Whether you are moving out of your childhood home or you are moving out of a college dorm, getting your first apartment can be both exciting and stressful. Fortunately, there are many services moving companies can provide that will make your transition to your new apartment go smoothly. Here are three ways your moving company can help you make your first apartment feel like home.

Furniture Assembly

Chances are, you'll have at least a few pieces of ready-to-assemble furniture for your new apartment. Instead of spending a few days trying to piece each item together on your own, ask your moving company to arrange for furniture assembly as part of your moving package. Your movers can quickly put together tables, chairs, bookcases and beds, so you can begin arranging your items to create a cozy feel in your home. You can have the items shipped from the store to your new apartment so they are waiting for you on your moving day, or you can have them shipped to your current residence and packed onto the moving truck for moving day.

Unpacking Assistance

Unpacking all your possessions can be a daunting task, especially if you've never moved before. Your moving company can help you unpack the items for every room in your apartment, putting dishes and cookware in your kitchen cabinets and hanging clothing in your closets. If you hire the moving company to pack your items before your move, they will label each box according to the items it contains and the room the items belong in. Once your boxes arrive at your new apartment, your movers can have everything unpacked and put away quickly. Your movers will also dispose of your moving boxes, so you are left with a neat and tidy apartment.

Electronics Setup

Your moving company may also be able to help you with setting up your electronic devices. Ask about having the movers help you install wall-mounted TVs, run cords and wires for your cable to each room and set up your router and modem. Having all of your electronic devices plugged in and ready to use will help you to feel more at home from the first day you move into your new space.

Moving companies do more than just transport your items from point A to point B. Talk to your moving company about the different services it offers that can help you transition to your very first apartment like a pro.
