Thinking of Renovating? Make the Job Easier, Store Your Stuff

Renovating? Make the Job Easier, Store Your StuffWhen it comes to renovating the home, homeowners can expect most projects to be messy and time-consuming. Whether you are doing the work yourselves or planning on having a contractor help, you can expect your home to be filled with tools and materials, plus have to deal with moving furniture and personal items for the job to be completed. When considering a new renovation project, think about what items of furniture or belongings you have in the area that will need to be moved. You might benefit from storing such items so that the job becomes a little easier.

Clearing out the Clutter

Let’s consider that you are completing a kitchen remodel. You want to install new cabinets and countertops, backsplash, etc. Take a look around your kitchen. What will you do with the china cabinet and kitchen table and chairs? Do you have the extra space to store these items? If you are like most homeowners, your home is already filled with items and you have no empty space in which to place the larger furniture pieces while the renovation takes place.

To combat this problem, think about using a storage facility for your larger pieces. By taking your big items to a storage facility, you clear up space so that work can be completed with ease. On top of that, you avoid having to place a kitchen table in the living room or in another area of your home. Renovations can take a few days or even a few weeks. By storing your items, you are able to avoid having an even bigger mess in the home!

Where to Store Your Large Items?

If you have never stored items before, you may be unsure as to where to go. Check out your local storage facilities for options to store your items. You may need only a small storage space for a short period of time. You want to find a storage room provider that can accommodate your belongings without charging you a ton of money. You only need storage for a short period of time, so search for companies that offer short term options.

One example of storage companies that can assist with storing your furnishings during renovations is Total Storage. With plenty of space for your personal belongings, Total Storage works with you to ensure your belongings stay safe while your renovation is in the process.

We moved back to Winnipeg from overseas and looked into a number of storage facilities and chose Total Storage, which resulted in a very satisfied decision without any regrets on any level. Our phone calls, as well as emails, were always answered promptly and efficiently. The owner and office staffs' assistance was very helpful, professional and appreciated throughout our experience from moving back to Winnipeg.
Not only will we utilise the Total Storage facility again and again as required, we continue to recommend their operation to others who have also been entirely satisfied with Total Storage facilities and staff.
Thanks again,
