It’s a busy time of year in Hampton Roads. Schools are back in session, the weather is getting cooler, and the days are getting shorter. Its football season, hurricane season, and festival season! Welcome to the fall and pre-holiday season in Hampton Roads.
This time of year is a great time to get things done around the house and yard. It’s time to clean, organize, and prepare for the holidays. I can almost smell pumpkin pie and hear sleigh bells ringing. Yes, it’s that time of year again. But don’t worry if the anxiety of pre-holiday mania is starting to take hold. Mini Price Storage has a few tips to help you get through the next few months.
Tip 1: Expect the Unexpected
While it may be time to think about spraying off the patio furniture and winterizing your motorcycle, it’s also time to assess the space you have in your garage to store these items. Have the summer months taken over your garage space with bikes, sports and pool equipment, lawn mowers and rakes? With a little effort, you may be able to make room for everything. Well, almost everything. Expect the unexpected. It’s still hurricane season. What will you do with your cars? Plan to store seasonal items offsite until you need them again. That opens up a lot of space to park your car. Isn’t that why you wanted a garage in the first place?
Tip 2: Less Is More
Take a look at your furniture layout before you take out the Thanksgiving, Halloween, and Christmas boxes, especially if you plan on having company. Give your tree the attention it deserves by giving it room to be the center of your holiday entertaining. That might mean temporarily storing an overstuffed chair, entertainment center, or love seat.
Tip 3: Learn From The Past
When you do unpack your cherished holiday boxes, check for damage from storing in the attic. Did you know that the attic is the hottest part of your house and may be several degrees hotter than the outdoor temperature? If you don’t have the space to store your holiday boxes in the house, consider keeping them in a heated and cooled storage unit for the remainder of the year.
The friendly staff members at Mini Price Storage are always ready to help you find a unit that works for your special needs. Every family is different. You may need a drive-up “garage” unit to park your sports car for the winter or you may need a small unit to hide holiday presents. We’re there when you need additional space, so get out your list and check it twice. Then, make a visit to Mini Price!
