5 Things you can do for Storage when Remodeling by Laing Self Storage

Do you live in Broome County, NY, Chenango County, NY, Tioga County, NY or Susquehanna County, PA and ready to remodel? But it’s important to determine the logistics before you even swing the hammer. Luckily, there are many temporary storage options available to you while you create your dream home.

Here are 5 Things you can do for Storage when Remodeling:

1. Rent a Mobile Storage Unit

A mobile storage unit is a convenient option because it’s like having your own storage facility right in your yard. It’s a great choice for folks who are remodeling, as you can clear items out of your house, store them in the unit while the remodel is going on, then bring them all back in when finished.

Plus, you have the flexibility, convenience and peace of mind knowing your items are just out in your yard should you need them. You can have this unit on your property for as long as you want. Just call the provider when finished and they will come pick it up.

2. Designate a Room in Your Home

If you have a spare room or area in your house that you don’t use, designate that as the place where all your furniture and décor will go while you remodel. This can be anything from a guest bedroom to an empty corner of your basement or garage. This is the most cost effective option but it can be inconvenient because of the large amount of stuff you have to store there for weeks on end.

It’s not a good option for people with small homes and no extra rooms to spare.

3. Hire Moving Labor

It can be physically demanding to move heavy furniture and boxes, even if you only have to haul it out to a storage container on the driveway. If you don’t have the proper equipment to do this, such as dollies, or you’re concerned about your bad back, you can hire labor only movers to do it for you.

They simply provide the muscle to get your large items out of the house and into the storage container. You can sit back and relax without worrying about your back.

4. Store Your Things With a Neighbor or Friend

If you have a trusted friend or neighbor who has extra space, ask if you can store your stuff at their place while the remodel is going on. Be clear about timelines so you don’t overstay your welcome.

5. Use Self-Storage

If you live in an apartment building or just don’t have the space in your yard, consider a traditional off-site storage facility. You can rent out a unit on your own and haul it all over there and if you need some extra help, visit our Hired Help page and hire a reputable company.

Its also important to pack your content in products that will keep them safe from water damage, varmints, dust & dirt - that is why we suggest renting our Laing Storage Totes. They are super easy to use and makes like easy!
