It might be hard to believe that Thanksgiving is tomorrow and that the holiday season is starting, and you may already have plenty to do and to get ready for. At EZ Storage® in Pittsburgh, we believe that it’s never too early to begin thinking about post-holiday storage, and if you’ve been going back and forth on whether or not you should rent a self-storage unit, then this is the perfect time of year to do it. The end of the year comes with plenty of activities and distractions, and not having to worry about those extra boxes in the attic or garage can be a great weight off of your mind.
The Post-Holiday Purge
The holidays may just be beginning, but in about a month’s time, they’ll be over and you’ll have rung in the New Year with friends and family. You will have eaten well, spent time with loved ones, and received amazing gifts from friends and coworkers. Your heart will be full, but your house might be also, and a post-holiday purge can be a great way to clear the clutter.
Toys and Games
If you have kids, then you may have another room’s worth of toys and games to put away after the holidays are over. The sheen of the new toys hasn’t quite worn off, but you’re looking at a closet or toy box full of last year’s gifts that were played with for six months and then forgotten about. Boxing up those items and putting them in storage will get them out of the way, and make more room for the new toys and games that the kids got this year. You may decide to donate some of the items after the New Year, or when the new toys lose their appeal, you can bring some of the old ones home for the kids.
Storing a Vehicle
If you have relatives coming from out of town, then you might need to move that motorcycle or ATV out of the garage so that you can make room for your car, or a relative’s car. We have self-storage options that are perfect for small recreational vehicles, and you can store yours for a month or two, and then pick it up once everyone has gone home. You can also leave it in storage for the winter, keeping it safe from wind and weather. You likely won’t get around to tuning it up until spring, so why have it take up space that you could use for something else?
Reserve Your Storage Unit Today
It may only be the end of November, but it’s never too early to reserve a self-storage unit for the end of this year, or the beginning of next year. At EZ Storage®, we offer monthly leases on all of our spaces, and with three locations in the greater Pittsburgh area, you can find a unit that’s close to your house. As you’re cleaning things up after the holidays are over, you may come across things that you want to store, or you may decide that it’s better to keep your motorcycle in storage for the winter. Whatever the case may be, you can count on us to safeguard your belongings.
