Resolutions that will keep your closet clutter-free in the New Year

- For every new clothing item I buy, I will dispose of another item from my closet

- This New Year, I will dispose of any clothing I have not worn in the past year.

- If you do not like how something looks on you, you will dispose it no matter how much you've spent on it.

- Get new items altered immediately.

- If there is a piece of clothing that doesn't fit you well or needs repairs, you will get it alerted/repaired immediately.

- Organize your closet every week and deep clean it every 3 months.

How to dispose of items:
You can do one of these things: Donate, sell or throw in the trash.

Another great option for seasonal items is that you can put them in storage. You can store items that are out of season or special occasion items.

You might not use that expensive fur coat all year, but it is an investment that will last you a life time. Also you should not let it take too much space in your closet. This problem can be easily solved by renting a storage unit and putting all seasonal and expensive items in storage. Also fur and leather requires climate-controlled and humidity-controlled storage conditions to keep them looking their best for a long time.

3 Alternative Uses of Bubble Wrap

If you thought bubble wrap could only be used for packing, we’re here to tell you that you’re wrong.

Bubble wrap has a few fun alternative uses that we will be talking about in this blog post:

Stress Relief:

Can you think of a better way of releasing stress than popping bubble wrap? Keep some bubble wrap handy next to your office desk and get popping whenever the pressure gets too much.

On Windows for Insulation:

Bubble wrap can be great for insulating your home from the cold and heat. Spray some water on your window and paste the bubble wrap on the window with the squishy side facing the window. Use dupt tape to make the edges stick. Bubble wrap does not dim the light that enters the house and if you use binds to cover the windows, the bubble wrap will not be noticed at all.

Bubble Wrap Painting:

Can you paint with bubble wrap? The answer is yes! Spread some paint on the squishy side of the bubble wrap and press that side against paper and you will get a unique print on paper.

Thinking of getting creative with bubble wrap? Find bubble wrap at great prices at our store.

Let us know in comments if you know of any more interesting things to do with bubble wrap.

Say goodbye to cobwebs with our Halloween Storage Ideas

Trick or Treat?

Halloween is the occasion for spreading joy, a little fear and lots of treats. With the festival around the corner, we are sure you have gotten your decorations and costumes out of storage and are ready to scare. But before you put them back in storage again here are a few tips to ensure that you store them safely for years to come.

Show them some love and care by storing them in boxes and keeping them away from dust, moisture and pests all year round.

2. You can order packing materials to store your Halloween decorations and costumes at home. Make sure to wrap the delicate decorations in bubble wrap before you pack them.

3. If you are not so sure that you will be able to care for the Halloween boxes all year round, you could opt for our Personal Storage solutions. Our storage units are regularly maintained to be free of dirt and dust and insecticide is sprayed regularly to keep pests away.

4. Label the boxes so that you know what they contain and you don't have to rummage through boxes when Halloween arrives next year.

Happy Halloween from everyone here at The Box.

Tips on when to use Temperature Controlled Units

If you have too many valuable possessions, but little space at home to put them, then you most probably have thought of renting a storage unit.

A lot of our customers use our services because they are short on storage and because our excellent customer service enables them access to their item at their convenience.

There are a few items that could be at risk if one fails to rent out a climate controlled unit. Here is a list of such items:

1. Fur
2. Furniture
3. Antiques
4. Musical instruments
5. Vintage cars   
6. Bedding and Mattresses
7. Sports equipment

Temperature and humidity are controlled in climate controlled storage vaults and damage that is caused to these fragile items can be avoided by storing them in optimum conditions.

One good tip is to search for storage providers that control humidity by using dehumidifiers. Air conditioners may be successful in cooling the air but they cannot bring the moisture levels low enough so that it is optimum for storage.

You might not need storage if you are storing items for a month or two. But if you plan to store any of the following items for a longer period of time, we strongly advise you to use climate controlled storage units.

A lot of our customers are expensive and irreplaceable items in our vaults; items that they are attached to sentimentally and they do not mind paying a premium to ensure that its stays in premium condition throughout its storage period.

Do you think you might need temperature-controlled storage vaults? Send us a query here if you think that you do.

Affordable Storage Units - A Feasible Option

When Andy changed his job in Bahrain, he had to change his apartment as well because it was his previous company’s owned apartment.  Now with a change of job, Andy also got a new apartment to stay in at. But like many others, besides the problem of packing, re-locating and shifting, he also faced a problem of what to do with some of the things that he did not require then.

He did not want to sell them as he felt that they might be useful later on. But keeping an extra cupboard, master-bed and a few other things at his new home was not possible due to space constraints.  It was then a friend suggested to him that he should opt for a storage unit. Andy had some reservations about storage units and rightly so. He had no idea about the expenditure involved while renting a storage unit, so he called up a few storage units nearby his new residence and was surprised to find that they were not as expensive as he thought them to be.

The next thing Andy did was to go to the storage unit and check them out. Andy went with his wife and both of them saw how the walls of the unit were well-maintained and damp-free. The lighting was adequate and the ceilings or the floorings did not have any cracks or leakages. They also questioned the security guards a few questions and once they were satisfied, Andy and his wife zeroed in on a small storage unit which according to the manager was sufficient to store everything that they did not need now.

Since both Andy and his wife were working, they did not get much time to pack things, so they called up the storage unit manager who surprisingly told them that he will send his team to do the packing and transporting at a nominal fee.  Andy was pleasantly surprised at the professional level of the packers & movers who packed everything neatly and in an organized manner.

He even oversaw how his goods were loaded and unloaded carefully at the storage unit with things stacked neatly and in order of his convenience. Andy also makes weekly trips to his storage unit and checks once in a while for his goods. He is very happy and satisfied with the services that he has chosen. You can use the services at effective prices too. Contact us for more details.
