Everybody has to start somewhere. If you've never made a move, or opened up a storage unit, then read below to make sure you don't fall victim to these rookie mistakes.
1. Plan, plan, plan. Planning your move as far in advance as possible will help eliminate a lot of the headaches that come along with it. Make a plan for everything. When are you going to start moving things into your climate controlled storage unit with Lexington Mini Storage? When is the deadline you're going to give yourself to get it all done? What order are you going to put things in your storage unit?
2. Pace yourself. Draw out a timeline for yourself once you're done planning. By pacing yourself, you won't feel as rushed or stressed with the move.
3. Be organized. Are you going to put the things you need most in the back of your storage unit? Probably not. Be smart about the order in which you put your things into storage, as it will make unpacking a breeze.
4. Think logistics. It's all in the details when it comes to moving. Did you just throw your clothes from the dryer to a box without making sure your clothes were completely dry? Did you empty the gasoline from the gas cans before putting them in the storage unit? Did you leave that bag of dog food open?
By making your list and checking it twice, you can make your first move an easy one by following these tips.
