Having renovation done on the interior of your home can be a major hassle, especially if part of it involves having the floors refinished. Not only do you have to clear everything out of the rooms affected, you have to find a place to put the stuff. The following are a couple of options you have.
Use the storage you have
If you have the space, you may be able to move things somewhere else in the home. This option only tends to work if you have available storage space, such as a nearly empty garage or if the area being renovated is small, such as only the dining room. Trying to use the space you have when a large portion of the home is under renovation will just lead to unnecessary frustration, since you will have to work and live around all the excess things crammed into every available corner. This can also increase the chances of your belongings suffering damage, since the renovation crew will also have to work around your belongings.
Rent a storage unit
Renting a storage unit will give you plenty of space, but it can be inconvenient. Not only will you have to move everything to the unit and then bring it back once the renovation is done, but you will also have to secure a moving truck. If the unit isn't close by, this can be even more inconvenient—especially if you need to get something out of storage. Renting a storage unit may only make sense if you expect the renovation to go on for months rather than days or a couple of weeks. You will only want to put things into the unit that you are pretty sure you won't need until the end of the renovation, as well, or you will have to make lots of journeys to the unit over the course of the renovation.
Have mobile storage delivered
Mobile storage consists of storage "pods" that are delivered to your home. You can place them anywhere on your property, although the driveway is the normal location. These containers will provide you with the convenience of on-site storage, without making any other room in your home crowded. Since the unit is on-site, it is also easy to enter it as needed to retrieve any items you may need before the renovation is complete. If your renovation is taking place in stages, you can easily swap out the rooms stored in the container as the work progresses.
As you can see, you have a few storage options during your renovation. Contact storage services like AA All American Airborne Self-Storage to learn more.Share
