Taking Inventory of Your Belongings in Storage

A few months ago, we talked about taking inventory of everything in your house. If you’ve done that, then we hope that you’ve discovered some long-lost treasures, as well as decided what you want to keep and what you can toss or donate. However, if you took some of your belongings and put them into self-storage, then the beginning of the New Year can be a great time to take inventory of everything in your unit. At EZ Storage® in Philadelphia, we’re here to make sure that your items are safe and sound, and as you’re going through your stuff, we’ll be here to help however we can!

Moving to a Smaller Storage Unit

As you take stock of what you’ve stored, you may decide to take quite a few things home, leaving you with much less stuff in your storage space. Because of this, you may decide that you don’t need to keep renting a large unit, and want to rent a smaller space, if you can. Our staff will be more than happy to help you find a suitable unit that meets your needs and your budget. If you want to move from a standard unit to a climate-controlled space, or vice versa, we can help you there as well.


Moving to a Larger Storage Unit

When you’re in your storage unit, you may realize that you’ve crammed a lot of stuff into the space. You may have added several things over the past few months, and instead of upgrading to a larger unit, you filled the smaller space to its full capacity. If you feel that your current unit will no longer suffice, or you think that your belongings may not be quite so safe and protected when they’re stacked on top of each other, we can help you choose a bigger unit. We’ll show you what we have available, and we can provide recommendations, should you ask.

Letting Go of Certain Things

One of the toughest parts of going through a storage unit can be letting go of things that you’ve held onto for several years. You may have had plans for a certain piece of furniture or an appliance, but the opportunity has now passed, and it’s better to let it go. By keeping those items that truly mean something, such as family heirlooms, and letting go of superfluous items, such as excess furniture or clothing, you can optimize your storage space and make it work better for you.
