6 SPRING CLEANING TIPS

6 SPRING CLEANING TIPS

6 SPRING CLEANING TIPS

Regardless of the weather outside, spring is upon us – and spring is synonymous with fresh starts. It’s time to get rid of those winter blues. So let’s get started with these 6 spring cleaning tips that will have your home in tip-top shape in no time.

1. Get rid of clutter.

Before you start preparing, get rid of items that are needlessly filling up your home. Step number one: Tackle those unwanted items.

Clothing: Toss the heavy outerwear and winter boots for lighter clothing and accessories. For clothes you will no longer need during spring, consider donating them to a local charity or placing them into seasonal storage.

Linens and décor: We recommend putting away heavier bedding and seasonal décor to help declutter and rid your home of the winter feel. Spring should be all about celebrating the sunshine.

2. Swap out seasonal gear.

Over the winter months, garages and basements become popular storage areas for grills, lawn mowers, sports equipment and patio furniture. With nice weather around the corner, it’s time to spruce up your curb appeal and get your garage back into shape.

Garage: Perhaps your garage has a area in one corner or a workshop in another. Now is the time to decide where you want to place those items and how you will organize them.

Welcome spring: Once you’ve decided on designated areas, it’s time to clean up and place your lawn mower, grill, patio furniture, gardening tools and other spring items back where they belong.

3. Time to clean: It’s a great time to rid your home of dirt, dust and other allergens and make it a refreshing atmosphere.

Wash curtains, windows, fixtures and other items that may often get ignored. Dust

down and wash any blinds, floorboards, window sills and corners. Great tip- Vacuum and flip your mattress over to provide even wear.

4. Maximize home storage.

As you begin spring cleaning, consider the space you already have in your home that you may not be taking advantage of. This will allow you to create (and keep) an organized space.

Open Shelving: As you clean your kitchen, bathroom, office spaces and more, look for existing spaces along the wall that may come in handy. Open wall shelves can create a light, refreshing look .You can keep your home organized, functional and bright – all while saving you space.

Think vertical: Use stackable storage and modular units for bedrooms and closet spaces.

Transform dead space into useable storage with shelves and baskets that can house everyday essentials. Maximize your space.

5. Make cleaning a routine. You might be surprised to find that we should be dusting and vacuuming every few days. We suggest staying on top of a cleaning schedule to help keep your home organized.

You’ll find yourself more relaxed and balanced when you are living in a tidy space. As we do in every part of life, we create a checklist for household tasks to keep the home looking beautiful and clean every day.

The more often you tackle chores like laundry, dusting and vacuuming, the less often you’ll have to do a thorough, tough clean.

6. Consider self storage: For seasonal belongings, oversized items, or accessories you haven’t yet found a home for, renting a storage unit can be a space-saving and easy way to store your things. For fragile items like wood, antiques or furniture, consider a climate controlled unit. It keeps items constant environment (temperatures between 55°F and 85°F). To ensure, our units are enclosed and, therefore, resist dust, pests and more.

3 Ways To Keep Your Storage Rental Organized!

3 Ways To Keep Your Storage Rental Organized!

3 Ways To Keep Your Storage Rental Organized!

One of the main reasons to get a storage unit is to help declutter your home. But what happens when your storage unit becomes the new cluttered mess in your life? We hope these tips below will help you to keep your storage unit organized so you can easily find what you are looking for.

 

Take Photos

Before coming to your self-storage unit, take an inventory of everything you plan to keep in the unit. Although a written list can be helpful, keeping a digital photo album of all items will make it easy for you to do some quick investigative work from home before driving out to your storage unit.

 

Label Label Label!

Storage units are most easily kept organized when everything is in uniform cardboard boxes or plastic containers. Thorough labeling is extremely important. Use a thick black marker to mark every box with its contents. Stack everything with the label facing out to minimize the search process later on.

 

Draw A Map

It’s a good idea to group your boxes according to their contents. Before you leave, draw a basic floor plan of your handiwork so you know exactly what corner of your storage rental to head to the next time you need something.

If you find that you need to upgrade your storage unit or downsize, please call our office. We make renting easy!

Storage Tips For The Fall

Storage Tips For The Fall

Storage Tips For The Fall

Spring isn’t the only season to get organized; autumn is a perfect time to de-clutter your home and get things in order for the colder months. As much as we try to keep things in order after the spring-cleaning season, there’s always a list of things to prepare for the next season. Soon the days will be getting shorter, now is a great time to use the extra time you have indoors to organize your home? To get you started, check out our favorite fall home preparation tips below. You can free up valuable storage space—both inside and out—and get set for a clutter-free winter.    

Swap Out the Seasonal Stuff

One simple way to free up closet space and dressers is to swap out your spring and summer wardrobe for fall and winter. Now is the time to take the opportunity to sort through your items, and decide if it’s time to give them away or store them for the next season.  Don’t forget the coat closet and the mudroom!   Storage Tip: Pack clothing away in plastic bins or containers to avoid dust, moisture, and bugs.

Organize Your Outdoor Living Area

There are a number of outdoor things that need your attention before the cold comes. Harsh weather can damage wood, wicker or aluminum, so pay extra attention to your porch, patio or deck furniture at summer’s end. A 10’x10’ unit is great for storing outdoor yards maintenance items – like garden tools, outdoor power equipment, and lawnmowers. These can take up valuable space in a garage that you might need for shovels, snow blowers, salt or other winter items.   Storage Tip: Clean before storing to prevent rust and damage. For added protection, we have climate-controlled units!

Your Car Wants the Garage Back

It’s common to turn to your garage for storage of your summer items. A storage unit is a perfect place to store bikes, pool equipment, gardening tools, patio furniture. Having these items out of the way, you’ll save a significant amount of space for your car and other winter necessities. You can thank us later.    

Storage For All Seasons

Each season gives us an opportunity to reorganize our home and prepare for the next. While you can utilize a self-storage unit at any time of the year, the harsh weather of winter makes it especially important to protect your belongings and be prepared.

Hiring a Moving Company vs. Renting a Moving Truck

Hiring a Moving Company vs. Renting a Moving Truck

Hiring a Moving Company vs. Renting a Moving Truck

Are you thinking about hiring movers to help with your move? You’re not alone. When it comes to something as stressful as moving, hiring help can seem like a smart solution. But, is hiring a mover the best solution for you? In this post, we break down the benefits of hiring movers verse the benefits of a DIY move.

The Benefits of a DIY Move

There are many benefits of doing a DIY move. Below, we’ve listed a few benefits of doing a DIY move as opposed to hiring movers.

1.         Total Control: In our opinion, the greatest pro to a DIY move is the fact that you are in complete control over the entire moving process. Not only do you get to choose the truck and all of your moving supplies, but you also can handle all the boxes yourself to ensure that nothing breaks in the process. Committing to a DIY move means that you have the flexibility to decide when to begin the move and when to end the move. If you’re moving in bad weather, you get to decide how best to protect your belongings. You’re also in control of how to load the truck, and you don’t have to worry about movers dumping boxes and furniture in rooms they don’t belong.

2.         Cheaper: Hiring movers can be expensive. Many movers will either charge hourly rates or quote you half of the move before it happens. When you move yourself, your moving expenses can drastically decrease.

3.         Help: Moving and packing is labor-intensive, so if you decide against hiring a moving company you’ll need some help. This means calling in lots of favors from friends and relatives. If you don’t have too many belongings and nothing particularly valuable or fragile to move your friends might well suffice. If you do have a considerable inventory to transport and some of it is quite valuable or irreplaceable, think twice. Good friends are not necessarily experienced movers and are most always not insured for damages that may incur during a move. If your best friends drop your flat screen TV, will you sue them for compensation? Not likely!

 

The Benefits of Hiring Movers

There are also many benefits of hiring movers. Below, you will find three benefits of hiring movers as opposed to doing a DIY move.

1.        Movers are Experienced: Hopefully, you have only moved a handful of times. Even though it probably isn’t your first move, unexpected problems always pop up that you will not have had experience with. A moving company can help you’re your move and have dealt with every roadblock out there.

2.        Less Stress: It’s common to rely on the help from family and friends during a move. When you hire movers, you won’t have to ask for much, if any, help from family and friends.

3.        Reduce the Risk of Injury: Movers have been trained on how to avoid injuring themselves during a move. Without the right tools and experience, it would be easy to injure yourself during a move.

Do You have to Move Out of Your Old Home Before the New Home is Ready?

It isn’t uncommon to have to move out of your old home before your new home is ready. So where do you put all of your items until your new home is ready? Whether you chose to do a DIY move or hire movers, a self-storage unit can be a solution for you. Lincoln Self Storage offers long-term or short-term rental solutions. Our storage facility has both standard and storage units that can control the climate ranging in various sizes. Contact us to rent a storage unit today!

First Time Renting a Storage

First Time Renting a Storage

FIRST TIME RENTING A STORAGE

Renting a storage unit for the first time isn’t as daunting as it may initially seem. In fact, depending upon the self-storage company, it can be quite easy.  Additionally, if you are prepared with some questions and you have done your research, the rental process can be even smoother. Lincoln Self Storage offers a variety of storage options such as standard units, climate controlled storage units, and vehicle storage. Knowing ahead what you want to store, how long you will need to store, and how much space you need to store your items, will make the renting process easier. Check out our top tips below.

Top Tips for Your First Time Renting a Storage Unit

  1. Decide What You Want to Store: We understand things will come up throughout your storage rental, it is good to have an idea of what you are looking to store. The cost of a storage unit will vary with the size of the space you need. Knowing how much you want to store and using our storage unit calculator to help determine the best size for your storage needs.
  2. What Kind of Storage You Need: If you are storing more sensitive items, like leather or wooden furniture, electronics, artwork, documents, and collectibles, it is important to utilize a climate controlled storage unit. Our climate controlled storage units are there to protect your belongings from dangerous fluctuations in temperature.
  3. Have the Proper ID: When you rent a storage unit, the storage facility will require certain documents. These documents may include a valid photo ID, current contact information, and valid insurance if you are storing a car, boat or motorcycle.
  4. Know How to Pack Your Items: When placing items in your storage unit, organize them so there is an aisle down the middle to the back of the storage unit. This will allow you to navigate the space more efficiently. Place large appliances and electronics towards the back. Put frequently needed items toward the front of the storage unit for easy access. Depending on the length of your rental, it’s always a good idea to check on the items in your storage unit every few months to make sure nothing has shifted in those particularly packed units. That would also be a good time to rotate any seasonal items from the back to the front of the storage unit.
  5. Prepare Your Items for Storage: You are renting the storage unit to keep your items safe. So, it is important to take your time and properly prepare your items for storage before they are moved into the storage unit.

There are several items that are prohibited from being stored in a stored. Check out our blog on what NOT to store. It is essential to abide by these rules to ensure the safety of you, your contents, other people and the facility.

COLLEGE STUDENT STORAGE TIPS

COLLEGE STUDENT STORAGE TIPS

COLLEGE STUDENT STORAGE TIPS

 

With summer quickly approaching, college students are preparing to pack up their dorm rooms. The problem: driving a car’s worth of household items to Mom and Dad’s home just isn’t feasible. So what’s a college student to do? Renting a self-storage unit for the summer is a cost-effective way for college students to store all of their belongings. Check out some of our favorite storage tips for summer storage. Best of luck and happy moving!

What Size Unit
The majority of college students can get away with renting a 5×10.  This size unit is capable of holding a sofa or twin bed, clothes, as well as décor and smaller furnishings.

Pack Your Things Efficiently
Be strategic about packing even smaller items. For example, carefully roll or fold your winter clothing for storage. Don’t just toss those clothes in a box and figure you’ll deal with them at the end of the summer. Since you’re likely packing stuff from a dorm room, you don’t have to worry about sorting things by room when packing. Instead, sort them by category. That’ll help you find your stuff easier when you go to unpack in the fall. For instance, pack all your shoes in one box, then carefully label the box as shoes for an easier time identifying and sorting your things.

Consider Sharing a Storage Unit
Save some money. If you have friends from college that you trust, consider splitting a storage unit with them. Not only will save money, you could also help each other out on your moving days. You may simply each choose to have one side of the unit for your belongings or otherwise find a way to divide the space among those who are sharing it.

Clean Your Stuff

It’s a great idea to clean your dorm refrigerator, microwave or dishes before packing it in self-storage. Cleaning your items prevents mold and bacteria growth while they sit in the storage unit.

Pack Smart.

Pack your books in smaller boxes to prevent lifting large boxes and hurting your back. Hang heavy clothing or blankets in wardrobe boxes, and wrap delicate items like plates in paper to prevent chips and cracks during the move. Pack glasses, plates and dishes in bubble wrap or plain newsprint in sturdy cardboard boxes. Do NOT use regular newspapers as protection as it can leave a print residue on the items. Place heavier items at the bottom of the box and lighter objects at the top of the box. Place filler material between the pieces. Once the boxes are packed up to within an inch of the top, add filler material and then completely seal the boxes with packing tape before storing.

Label Everything

Write down the name of the contents on the side of the box with a permanent marker. Don’t use post-it notes; they just fall off and leave you clueless as to which box contains what you need.

Select The Right Lock

If you don’t know which lock to select for your storage unit, we have locks available for purchase and will make sure that you have exactly what you need.

Let Lincoln Self Storage help you by providing various sized units, helpful moving supplies, and guidance throughout the entire process.

WHAT NOT TO STORE

WHAT NOT TO STORE

What not to Store

 

Self-storage is great for personal and business storage. Items such as appliances, furniture, business documents and inventory, family heirlooms, seasonal items and pharmaceutical supplies can all be stored in your unit, keeping your home or office clutter-free. Our variety of storage options will allow you the ability to store a variety of items, even up to boats and RVs and construction equipment. However, there are some things that can’t be stored.  Placing any of the items that are on the ‘DO NOT STORE LIST’ could get you fined or even arrested. Before you rent storage, make sure that you know about what items should not be stored your unit. This list will help you protect you as well as those around you.

Valuable Items- Items such as jewelry, coins (historical and collectible) and precious metals should not be stored in a self-storage unit. It’s better to keep these items safely in your home or at your bank in a safe deposit box. Don’t store cash.  Also, keep birth records, passports, social security and tax documents in a fire-safe box in your home, not your self-storage unit.

Plants and Living Items- Your storage unit is not a greenhouse, and plants cannot survive in an environment without oxygen or light. Storing them in your self-storage unit is prohibited. Obviously, self-storage is not a place to store animals or pets. Not only is this strictly prohibited. Plants and animals that are stored in self-storage will also lead to bugs and other vermin infestation.

Perishable Items- DO NOT STORE FOOD!! In the extreme conditions of a non-climate controlled storage unit, food can spoil quickly and invite unwanted bugs to your storage unit. Opened containers of spices, cereals, and other non-perishable items should not be stored in self-storage. Some canned items can survive in the extreme conditions, but it really isn’t advisable to store them in a self-storage unit.

Flammable or Combustible Materials-Do does not store fireworks, gas, oil, propane tanks, lamp or motor oil, weed killers, car batteries or paint and paint thinner in self-storage. Gasoline or propane can very easily ignite in an enclosed unit and put the entire facility at risk. That is why it is important to drain the fluids from lawn mowers and other outdoor equipment before putting them in self-storage. Also, any item in an aerosol can is extremely flammable and not allowed in your unit.

Scented or Wet ItemsIt’s not a great idea to store scented or damp items. As mentioned above, strong scents can easily attract pests, insects, rodents or vermin to investigate the source of the overwhelming odors. Trust us, you don’t want any living things crawling or flying around in your rental unit. Also, any items that are wet or damp will start producing mold, mildew and spread bacteria in your self-storage unit, and that will likely damage some, most or all of your prized possessions placed in temporary storage.

Toxic, Hazardous, Stolen or Illegal Substances- Do not store chemicals, fertilizers and every day cleaning products in self-storage. These items are very toxic and dangerous in extreme temperatures. They could cause a fire or chemical accident in your unit. We do not allow the storage of firearms, gunpowder, and ammunition. Even if the firearms are antique and no longer in working order, they could pose a dangerous threat. It should also go without saying that you should not store illegal or stolen items in your unit. Self-storage facilities are subject to searches, so illegal items will not be any safer there than they would be in your home. Check with your storage facility before you store to make sure you are storing items properly and are not storing a “banned” item.

For a complete list of items, please stop by our office and a member of our staff will be glad to help you.

MOVING IN TOGETHER?

MOVING IN TOGETHER?

MOVING IN TOGETHER?

Moving in together is a huge step in any relationship. A little extra planning can go a long way in a smooth transition. To prevent undue stress on yourself or your relationship, take the proper precautions to ensure you are prepared for this next step. This helpful list for moving in together should help you get organized. To make things easier, we created the checklist below and divided it up by time.

3 MONTHS OUT

Discuss who will pay for what. Know in advance how much each party is able to contribute financially and any bills they will be adding.
Prepare your financial documents. Gather bank statements, pay stubs, proof of employment and landlord reference letters. Having all of this documentation on hand will make rental applications easier.
Make a list of what you have, what you need and what you need to store. Taking the time to write these lists will save you time and money in the long run. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time for this task. Storage is always an option for the couch or armoire you can’t part with, but don’t have room for. We make renting storage easy, call us today.
Divide up responsibilities. The benefit of moving in with your partner is that you don’t have to sort it all out on your own! Decide who is best at what and disperse the stress a little.

1 MONTH OUT

Sign the lease. When this needs to happen depends on the real estate market in your community, but give yourself plenty of time to find the perfect place.
Take measurements. Measure both of your furniture items and the new home to make sure everything you have will fit. This also helps when planning additional purchases.
Rent a moving van or hire a mover.  If you plan on moving yourself, make sure you have the tools to make it successful.
Buy plenty of boxes. Use the list you created of what you have to assess how many boxes you will need and then add a few extra. Not sure what kind of boxes you’ll need?
Purchase packing supplies. If you have valuable art or delicate china, make sure you have the appropriate materials to move it safely. Stop by our office for packing supplies and covers.
Take the day off.  Do yourself a favor and use it for moving day. You can thank us later.

1 WEEK OUT

Transition all of your bills to your new home. Inform your service providers you are moving and make sure your partner does the same.
Begin packing boxes as far in advance as you can. Be strategic when you are packing to avoid chaos once you start to unpack.
Label everything. Label Label Label. We can’t say it enough.  You will be combining  the possessions of two people, this step is extra important.
Clear the fridge. Avoid grocery shopping this close to your move date. Time to start  clearing your cabinets, freezer and fridge of any perishable goods.
Pack a overnight bag. Packing a change of clothes and toiletries in case you don’t have time to get the essentials unpacked on moving day can be a lifesaver.
Put in a change of address.. This allows mail to be forwarded to the proper place.
MOVING DAY

Wrap glass tables or large electronics in towels or sheets. Avoid damaging your possessions in the move by ensuring they are as protected as possible.
Keep each room’s boxes together. Make sure your living room items stay together and your bathroom items are all in the same place. This will expedite the unpacking process and makes emptying the moving van easier.
Wear appropriate clothes.
Your wear during moving day may seem unessential to you, but do not underestimate it. Put on comfortable clothes, because it will be a really long day. Also, to protect yourself from any injures, avoid clothes and shoes with ties. Loose-fitted clothes are more likely to cause troubles too. If you are performing a long distance trip, take into consideration that there might be a weather drop. In this case you will need to change clothes during the trip, so keep a pair of clean clothes with you just in case.
Above all, don’t overdo it. To avoid feeling overwhelmed, make moving your sole task for the day. Keep your cell phones charged. Stay hydrated, pack snacks, and take short breaks when you need them. Moving day might be hectic, but if you’re prepared, you can help it go off without a hitch.

Tips for Moving with Pets

Tips for Moving with Pets

Tips for Moving with Pets

It’s often said that moving is one of the most stressful things that will happen to a person in their lifetime. The same can be said for your pet. Animals often have a hard time with the travels to a new location, and then with adjusting upon arrival. Here are some tips for moving with pets before, during, and after the move itself. This will help you and your pet stay stress-free during your move.

Pre-Move

Get a tight new collar and an updated tag with easy-to-read name and number. If you’re moving out of the area, inform your vet so you can take records and any prescription medications with you. See if they can recommend another vet in your new neighborhood.

During Move

During the move itself, the best way to reduce stress on an animal is to keep them in the quietest area possible. If you don’t want to leave them with a friend or a kennel for the day (which is recommended), at least remove them from the action. This could mean emptying a bedroom on another floor and closing the door, or putting them in their carrier or kennel in the garage or car (take proper caution to ensure they’ll be at a safe temperature and that they have water and food if they will be there for some time). Make sure you check in on them regularly, and try to feed or walk them at the time you usually would; having some sense of a routine in the midst of all the changes will help a lot.

Post-Move

Find a new clinic right away so you know where to go for any emergencies.

Start your new routine (such as morning walks, meal time, etc.) right away so pet can feel comfortable in new place quickly. Before unpacking your own stuff, lay out pet essentials so that s/he has some familiar items in the strange new house.

Hidden Hazards

Not all moves can be made in one day. If you must stop for the night, call ahead to hotels that claim to be pet-friendly. Don’t take a hotel chain’s word for it. Call the actual hotel and verify what their pet policies are. Many pet-friendly hotels have a limited number of rooms available for people with pets, or will only allow small dogs and cats. Keep in mind, there are opportunities for your pet to escape easily. In the hotel room, look around for any dangers, such as open windows or holes in the wall, before letting your pet out of the carrier. Remember to keep your pet on his leash when exiting the hotel.

It’s not easy to move with animals, but it’s part of the obligation you have to them. With forethought and planning, there is no reason why moving to a new home cannot be accomplished with a minimum of stress—for both you and your companions.

GET ORGANIZED

GET ORGANIZED

The New Year is here and like many people, you probably made some New Year’s Resolutions. Right up there with losing weight and cutting back on soft drinks, getting organized is a top priority. Did you know that a storage unit can easily help you keep this New Year’s Resolution?

Think about it… over the last 365 day your closets and garage have become dumping grounds for unused clothes, exercise equipment and boxes of unknown things. You may not want to get rid of these items.  That’s why renting with us can be so helpful.

How do I choose a self-storage unit?

Before you decide on the type and size of the storage unit, you will need to take an inventory of what you will be storing. If you only need to make room in your closets, a mini storage unit will probably do the trick. These units are about the size of a walk-in closet and are perfect for clothes, small appliances, and other knick-knacks.

If you are cleaning out the garage and have old furniture, bicycles, exercise equipment and other bulky items you should consider a larger unit. Using our online calculator will help you determine the amount of space you need.

A climate controlled unit is an option if you are storing electronics, antiques or leather furniture. These types of units will prevent condensation and corrosion from forming due to wide temperature swings.


Do I need a storage unit for my business?

Businesses of all sizes can utilize self-storage units to kick off the New Year. Over the past year, your business will have generated hundreds, if not thousands, of files that need to be stored away. Everything from inter-office memos to customer contracts to tax documents needs to have a place to stay. Some of these files, like tax and legal documents, need to be kept for years. Using a climate controlled unit for your document storage is a cost-effective way keep them safe and secure and free up some much-needed office space.

Self-storage units are also a great place to store surplus office supplies and bulky equipment that you do not use on a daily basis. By keeping these items in a central location outside of the business, you can free up some space and give things a fresh organized look.

Live Life and Explore!

Whether you are in your early 20s or late 50s, many people make a resolution every year that they are going to live life to the fullest. They decide they are going to abandon their job or their life at home and go explore the world. Unless you intend to keep paying rent on an apartment for months while you’re away, you may want to consider packing your things into a storage unit to allow you to travel lightly—the best idea when traveling the world.

Maybe a storage unit can’t help you with each resolution, but if you ever find yourself thinking, “Oh if I only had space,” a storage unit is probably your answer.
