Visiting Your Storage Unit At The End Of The Year

Can you believe this year is almost over? While it’s a busy time of year, it’s also a good time to make sure your affairs are in order before the new year. For self-storage renters, that means taking that trip to make certain things are in order. For anyone living in Lower Manhattan with a storage unit in New Jersey, you may not visit your unit as often. The good thing is, whenever you decide to, it’s just minutes away and you’ll be home and back in no time. Keep yourself organized with an end-of-year visit to your storage unit.  

An organized storage unit is the best way to close the year. Especially if you haven’t made time to visit your storage unit recently, you should always check in just to see how things are. Make sure there isn’t any damage, throw out old items, or drop off any presents you received that you can regift in the future. Keep reading to find out why it's helpful to organize your storage unit at the end of the year.


Revisit your inventory list

Most likely you created an inventory list when you first moved into your storage unit. If you’re not someone who visits your storage unit often then not much has probably changed on your inventory list. Or maybe you need to check out your inventory list to see what else you can make room for. The end of the year is a great time to cross-reference your inventory list with what’s physically inside. 


Add any items you haven’t been using

An easy way to determine what goes into your storage unit is by thinking about what you use the least. For example, seasonal clothing and holiday décor are two specific things you don’t need to use all year round. One of our rules of thumb is if you haven’t used an item in the past two months then you can either get rid of it or store it. Using this rule can help you decide what stays and what goes. If you can, avoid using your storage unit for things you know you should get rid of. Use your best judgment when deciding what’s worth keeping and holding onto.


College students leaving until next semester

When college students leave for winter break, what happens to their belongings? While most might decide to leave them in their apartment or dorm, some prefer to use a storage unit instead. Students from Pace University, New York University, and other schools in Lower Manhattan choose StorageBlue as the cheap option instead of storage in Lower Manhattan. A college student will always appreciate getting things at a cheap price, and that’s why StorageBlue is happy to even offer additional student discounts.


End your short-term storage rental

Were you only planning to rent your storage unit for a few months? Maybe you’ve been traveling abroad for the year and finally returned, or you just completed home renovations.
