After the Breakup, How to Transition Back to Single Living

by Admin 16. November 2018 14:00

You know you're not alone. Almost everyone deals with a breakup sooner or later. You may still feel alone, but that's okay. Now, you can start transitioning back to the glorious independence of a single life. It's actually a very good place to be in Hialeah, FL. Here’s how self storage can help you get there.

Conquer Your Space 

If you're staying in the old place, make it all yours. If you're moving out, make the unfamiliar comfortable with old stuff. Wherever you settle, conquer your space with strategies for a fresh start. 

  • Look for nearby storage units, and lease extra room just for you.
  • Rearrange everything from furniture to kitchen cabinets.
  • As you reorganize, dedicated a few minutes each day to decluttering.
  • Use your unit for stashing items destined for donation or a garage sale.
  • Deep clean where you've never cleaned before even if the place is new.

Celebrate Your Clean Slate

Congratulate yourself on turning a blank canvas into a new life. Step back, and enjoy it. Don't let sentimental attachments get in the way. If you're still hanging onto things you bought with the ex, move them to self storage. 

Every inch of space belongs to you now. Take up both sides of the closet and the bed. Fill up shelves with new things bought just for the new place. Ask friends to raid their storage units for leftover breakup belongings. Pool everything together, donate it all to local organizations, and throw a party celebrating everyone's clean slates.

Embrace Your Independence 

Almost everyone feels down after a breakup, but that feeling will pass. You're ready to bounce back and make a new life that's entirely yours. With several self storage facilities across Miami including our Hialeah, FL location, Safeguard salutes your new independence. Embrace it because – with the help of storage – you know you're going to love it.

Self Storage: Construction Companies' Offseason Space Solution

by Admin 9. November 2018 14:00

When the busy season winds down, you need to park equipment and supplies. Your construction business doesn't fit in the garage anymore, and you're still working on several offseason jobs. Solve these space and access problems with affordable self storage in Lyons, IL and throughout the Chicago metropolitan area.

Slow Down and Take Stock 

Now is the time to put downtime to good use. As the schedule eases up, scout different types of storage units in your area. Small units work for tool and supply storage, while drive-up units are great for unloading heavy equipment.

You can lease secure facility parking for company trucks, vans, and forklifts. Everything stays centrally located, and you don't have to worry about theft or vandalism back at the job site. When you're between projects, tools and equipment are always in one place for inventory, inspection, and repair.

Organize and Stock Up 

A climate-controlled storage unit keeps tools and equipment insulated from freezing Chicago weather. It also keeps you comfortable as you organize everything for quick access. Labeled plastic bins make it easier to retrieve multiple toolsets, while wood pallets and shelves keep supplies within easy reach. 

Take advantage of offseason pricing on some of those supplies. Save money now with bulk buying strategies that put you ahead of the next quarter's budget. You have plenty of room in an affordable storage unit that leases for a fraction of the cost of warehouse space. 

Relax and Enjoy Self Storage Benefits 

Saving money always counts, but self storage also adds value to your construction business and gives you a competitive edge. 

  • Tools and equipment stay in top condition and ready to go.
  • High-tech, on-site security systems give you peace of mind.
  • You don't have to schedule around equipment pick-up from multiple locations, as it’s all in one place.
  • You can order supplies and have them delivered to your storage facility.
  • Online tools like account management and our unit size calculator save valuable time.

An Easy Way In: The Benefits of an Outdoor Access Storage Unit

by Admin 26. October 2018 13:00

When you consider leasing storage units here in Metairie, LA, you have more choices than you might realize. Our outdoor facilities are fenced in and home to some very smart storage options. We can think of at least seven benefits to enjoy with outdoor access to your unit. 

1. Easy Ins and Outs 

Pull in, park in front of your unit, and load or unload. It's that simple with outdoor self storage. Your space is always easy to access, which saves time whether you're in the middle of a move or storing away seasonal stuff. 

2. Facility-Wide Security 

You and your belongings deserve high-tech, site-wide security. Facility access is gated, computer-controlled and recorded. Digital video cameras add extra layers of protection. This surveillance blanket provides 24/7 on-site security you can depend on year-round. 

3. A Variety of Sizes 

When you need lots of space, storage units with outdoor access are some of your best choices, and they come with a variety of square-footage options. Figure out exactly how much room you need with our online space estimator tool. 

4. Room to Move 

Imagine not having to navigate facility hallways while you're moving furniture. Picture off-loading heavy appliances straight into the unit. Treat your back to the luxury of easy loading and unloading with outdoor access to storage. 

5. Extra Parking Space 

Many drive-up units are designed for storing cars, RVs, and motorcycles. When you want long-term parking for extra wheels, simply drive or ride into your unit. When the bass boat needs a spot between Lake Pontchartrain fishing trips, dock it in your storage unit. 

6. Heavy Equipment Storage 

If you run a business that relies on heavy equipment, drive-up self storage keeps the tools of your trade locked up and ready to go. Landscapers, roofers, and handyman services are just a few examples of small businesses that save big money by avoiding the expense of leasing commercial warehouse space. 

7. Flexible Affordability 

Often, units with outside access are less expensive than interior units. The savings add up, but you don't have to sign a long-term contract. Month-to-month leasing keeps storage options flexible and your budget under control. 

Multiple Sites at Your Service 

Online account management and on-site storage specialists are two more great reasons to appreciate outdoor access to storage units. Stop by one of our three Metairie, LA sites, and explore all the easy ways to enjoy self storage. Our Safeguard teams look forward to showing you our great outdoors.
