How to Move Out of Your Storage Unit

A-1-Self-Storage-Summer-Storage-Tips-300x266Is it time to say goodbye? Do you have your move scheduled, but you’re not sure what to do next? We’re here to help! Follow these easy steps to help make the process of moving out of your storage unit as smooth as possible.

  • Notify Us of Your Move Ahead of Time.For your convenience, our contracts are month to month. Please be sure to let us know you’re leaving in advance. We recommend giving notice prior to paying your next month’s rent. This will help you save money, so you aren’t paying for more days than you are using as we do not offer refunds. If you happen to change your mind, or need a few extra days, just let us know!
  • Empty Your Space.Clear everything out of your storage unit so that we can close out your account. If you find something that you can no longer use, consider donating it to Serving Hands International to give it a new life.
  • Clean Your Storage Unit. Help us make the next customer’s stay a great experience just like yours.Sweep out your unit and clean up any spills.
  • Remove Your Lock. The lock on your storage unit belongs to you, so don’t forget to take it with you! You can use it again if you need to rent with us in the future. Because you have the only keys, if you leave your lock on, the space is still occupied by you even when it’s empty.
  • Fill Out a Vacate Form. After you’ve moved out, stop by the office and fill out a quick Vacate Form. It’s quick & painless, we promise!
  • Tell Us How We Did. Our goal is to make each customer’s stay convenient, safe, and enjoyable. If we have accomplished this, please let us know by writing a review! Ask an Associate for more details.

Do You Need Climate Controlled Storage?

Regulator climate control. Vector image.Climate controlled storage units are extremely handy when it comes to storing your furniture, antiques, musical instruments, or any fine art. Climate controlled storage units keep items in a constant set temperature. If you are going to be placing valuable items in storage, you will want to consider a climate controlled unit.

  • Furniture – Wooden and leather furniture are sensitive to extreme climates and will want to be stored in climate controlled units. Wooden furniture (bed frames, tables, chairs, dressers, and more ) can be damaged when it is exposed to too much moisture.
  • Appliances – Your household appliances including washers, dryers, microwaves, refrigerator all need climate control storage. Climate control protects electronic parts from cracking and rusting,
  • Musical Instruments –  Musical instruments are very delicate and need to be handled carefully especially if storing for a long period of time. Humidity can dry out wood instruments such as guitars and pianos. Climate control will reduce moisture and help eliminate dust which will preserve your musical instruments.
  • Photography & Artwork – When storing photos climate control is a must. If temperatures get too hot and humid and photos are stacked on top of one another, the prints can start to blend together.

Properly storing your items during the warm summer months will help protect your items from the heat. Climate control is offered at select A-1 Self Storage locations. Check with your facility to confirm.
