Relieve The Stress of Moving With Self Storage

Moving can be one of the most stressful times in a person's life.  Whether you are downsizing, combining households or moving to a new home, there are so many new adjustments that you need to make just so you can carry on with your daily routine.  Boxing up everything you own, cleaning your old home and transporting everything across the city can become overwhelming.  The use of a self storage unit as a temporary solution can considerably reduce the pressure on  your moving day.

Start Packing Early and Reserve a Storage Unit

Getting a head start gives you one of the best stress relieving tools; time.  Line up a storage unit as soon as you make the decision to move.  This gives you time to pack without having to rush.  You can pack your belongings at your own pace and take the time to pack and label everything properly. 

Having a storage unit allows you to move your items into storage as you pack, keeping your home clutter free.  When it's time to move, you will be organized and ready to go.

Before you get started, you're going to need boxes and other packing supplies.  At Riel Park RV & Self Storage, we have boxes, packing tape, bubble wrap, mattress covers and everything else you'll need to make your move as smooth as possible.

Safe and Secure Storage

The best part about renting a storage unit is not just that it helps relieve the stress of moving, but it also offers reliable security features to give you peace of mind knowing your belongings are safe and secure.

When choosing a self storage facility, the appearance is very important.  Moving your belongings into a clean and well-maintained facility is essential.  The appearance of a storage facility can tell you a lot about the priorities of the company and the care they put into securing your items.

Riel Park RV & Self Storage is fully fenced, paved and gated and requires a personal access code for entry.  Our storage facility has state-of-the-art cameras for security monitoring, frequent mobile security patrols and lighting throughout the entire facility.

Flexible Storage Options

Having a deadline of when everything needs to be moved can cause more stress.  When it comes to self storage, deadlines are simply unnecessary.  Self storage can be a long-term or short-term solution.  If you are not ready to move everything into your new home just yet, or if you just need some time to rest, you can leave your possessions in self storage for as long as you need.

At Riel Park RV & Self Storage, we have month to month contracts which can make renting a storage unit an affordable solution to suit your moving needs.

Unpack Without Clutter

Unfortunately, the stress of moving doesn't end once you've arrived at your new home.  You still have the long process of unpacking ahead of you.  You don't always have the time to declutter before you move.  With a self storage unit, you can take your time to slowly unpack and cut down on the chaos and stress of unpacking. 

Retrieve a few boxes at a time and organize each room at your own pace.  This will also help you to see everything that you have and get rid of anything that is no longer needed, giving  you a decluttered and stress-free new home.

Climate Controlled Storage Units

If you are moving at a time of  year when weather can be severe, climate-controlled storage units are designed to keep your sensitive belongings safe in these conditions.  Climate-controlled storage units have temperature and humidity controls to ensure that mold does not grow and your belongings do not warp or crack.  Items that should go into this kind of storage are artwork, electronics, antiques, musical instruments, etc.

At Riel Park RV & Self Storage, we have climate-controlled storage units to protect  your sensitive items so you have nothing to worry about while moving.
