Moving is a complicated process. Whether you are moving a family member into a senior living community, a college student in or out of a dorm, or even coordinating for a business that needs to change buildings, there are a hundred details to figure out and questions to answer.

Depending on your situation, one of the biggest challenges may be storage. You might have to move some things out of your home while it’s on the market to add more visual appeal to prospective buyers. You may have to store furniture and possessions while you wait for your new home to be ready. Or, you have to store a college student’s belongings as they transfer from a dorm room to a campus apartment.

Because the professionals at WayForth have worked with thousands of clients over the years, we have a couple storage tips to help make the process a bit easier. These include:

De-clutter first

One of the smartest things you can do for yourself is to go through your possessions early in the process and decide what you want to keep and what you can donate or dispose. There is no reason to pay to keep something in storage that will end up getting tossed later.

Keep like-items together

Think about categories as you’re boxing things to go to the storage unit. Maybe you want all of your shoes together or perhaps you want all guest room linens together. Whatever you do, make sure it makes sense for you so you can find things easily.

Label everything that’s going into storage

Speaking of finding things, there’s nothing worse than trying to look for something and pulling apart boxes and boxes only to find it in the last possible place you’ve looked. Make sure you’ve labeled everything clearly with details. An example would be: “Books for Rob’s office” rather than just “Books.”

Work with a dependable company

There are a lot of storage possibilities out there and you want to make sure that your precious furniture and possessions are taken care of during any storage process. WayForth has both the knowledge and experience to assist with your storage needs. We offer storage options and can help you make decisions about what should be stored as well as coordinating and physically moving your items.
