Five Tips for Winter Storage in Maryland

There’s lots to know about storage, in fact much more than you might at first think. But out of all of them, these five are the standouts that can help you pack efficiently and effectively this winter (or next winter!).

  1. Assess your needs. Before you make any clicks or calls, start detailing a list of all of the things you need stored. It can be a big pain and pretty stressful to order a service, only to find out you needed more than you planned around.
  2. Pick your storage company wisely. There are lots of storage services out there. Each offers slightly different services, like our SMARTBOX systems being ideal for on-site or temperature controlled storing. We can provide you with the best in the business no doubt, but it always pays to know your options!
  3. Organize your storing methods. One of the big challenges of storing is keeping things well organized. That list you made from tip one will come in handy here: take the original list, and begin dividing up your storage into specific sectors. Boxes in “x”, decorations in “y”. Knowing where everything is and having it accounted for goes a long way in retrieving your items when the time comes. And speaking of…
  4. Pack with unpacking in mind. Ideally you want to plan your storing around ease of retrieval. We know that storing isn’t the most fun in the world and rushing is tempting, but you’ll make your unpacking many times harder if you don’t plan accordingly!
  5. Choose on or off-site. Winter here in Maryland can bring some unique challenges, and you may and or may not want to store your portable storage containers on site or off site. If you choose off-site storage, your portable SMARTBOX storage will go to our temperature-controlled facilities where they’re guaranteed safe. It’s a good service to take advantage of when the weather can so readily threaten your possessions!
