Spring has arrived which means it is time to start organizing your things. 

As the season changes to warmer weather you will need to start the annual rotation of your gardening tools, outdoor gear and other equipment from your storage unit.

Spring is the perfect time to remove the extra stuff from your garage that you may not need in the summer months to come, which provides more space for the things that you do need.

Spring is also the perfect time to remove your patio furniture and the family BBQ from storage so you are prepared for backyard grilling and other fun summer activities.

What items are you excited to pull out of storage to use this summer?

How to Organize & Optimize Your Storage Space

One of the best ways to make your storage experience convenient and enjoyable is to plan ahead when packing your storage space. 

Here are few helpful tips to consider.

1. Keep a detailed list of all items - You should know exactly which items are going to be stored and keep a list so that you can refer to it whenever you need something. 

2. Consider using protective covering - Depending on the climate you may want to lay down moisture absorbers, a tarp, or other protective fabrics both on the floor and around valuable items.

3. Make sure you you can access items out of reach - Keep a fold-up step ladder in your storage unit so that you can easily and safely reach items that may otherwise be too high. 

4. Know which items you’ll need the most often. - Understanding which items you will use most often allows you to plan ahead and pack those things near the entrance of your storage unit for easy access. 

5. Create an aisle of space to access everything. - Pack things along the walls and leave the middle open or simply leave an aisle of space so that nothing will be out of reach. 

What storage tips do you have for organizing and optimizing your space? Let us know in the comments below!

Are you planning on making a move anytime soon?

Get enough supplies - plan on needing extra boxes, tape and bubble wrap. Running out of supplies will only slow your move down. If your move requires dollies and hand trucks make sure they are available. 

Label everything - Make sure to label every box with its contents. This will speed up your unpacking process. 

Plan your move on a weekday when banks, utilities and other offices are open.

Reach out for help - No one enjoys the chore of moving, recruit family and friends to help with the move and make it fun. 

Let us know how the move goes and if you have any tips to share!

Storing in the #Summer:

Moving out of your apartment or dorm for the summer? Self-storage is the perfect solution for this time of year! Keep your things in one place ready to go for your next move. What’s the trick to finding the best spot for your stuff? Here are some starter ideas:

1) What size of unit do you need? - Most students find that a 5x5 unit is ideal for storing everything that won’t fit in the back of your car, but check with our storage experts for your perfect fit.
2) What amenities are useful? - Check out our access hours so you know when you can swing by to drop off or pick up a few boxes!
3) Preparing your stuff - Remember to defrost, clean, and dry your mini fridge. It’s also a great idea to clean your microwave to prevent mold. Never store any food or drink items, no matter how non-perishable!
4) Packing your stuff - Store books in multiple smaller boxes so they don’t get too heavy. 
5) Keep in touch - Keep a business card with our phone number,  your storage unit number, and gate access code. And always call with questions!

Share with your friends to spread the word about storage during the summer!

Why you should declutter your self-storage unit this holiday season.

Chances are, you’ll be making multiple trips to your storage facility this holiday season.  To save time, it’s important to keep it clean and organized so you can spend more time with your family and less time sorting through boxes and bed frames.  Here are some reasons you may want to reorganize your self-storage unit this holiday season.

Holiday decorations  You’ll find it much easier to retrieve and restore your holiday decorations if you keep your space clean.  It’s likely been a year since you’ve accessed your holiday decor and if your storage unit isn’t clean, it probably means these items have found their way to the bottom of the pile.  Decorating is hard enough, don’t waste your time digging for decor.

Create space for household items  If you plan on being festive this holiday season, you’ll likely need to make room in your home for family and friends.  Declutter your home this holiday season to create space. An organized home helps to reduce stress and clear the mind, just what many of us need before the family arrives for dinner.

Make room for your favorite toys  It may be time to store your RV or boat.  If your storage unit is cluttered, you’ll likely waste a lot of time trying to make room for these larger items.  If you’ve acquired lots of things over the past year, it may be time to upgrade to a larger unit or rent a separate unit altogether.

Can you think of any other reasons to declutter your self storage unit this holiday season?  Let us know in the comments below!

Tips on choosing a self-storage facility that’s right for you.

There are several things you need to consider when choosing a self-storage facility. 
Choose a facility that is secure. Facilities with security features can help reduce crime. It’s also important to consider the security of the property overall. Is it well-lit? Is it located in a safe neighborhood? Is there a fence around the property?
Make sure the accessibility hours work for you. It’s important to ensure you will be able to access your belongings at a time that works with your schedule. It’s also important to note the access policy to see if it’s possible to have a family member or friend access your unit if needed.
Consider your needs and budget before beginning your search. It’s helpful to understand what your needs are before beginning your search. For example, if you have a lot of large, valuable furniture that you need stored for a short amount of time it may be worth considering paying extra for a larger space. If you need a place you can access often then you’ll want to prioritize on the location and proximity from your home or work.

Let us know if you have any other tips when searching for a self-storage facility in the comments below!

How much storage do you need?!  
It is important estimate the amount of storage space you will need for your belongings before purchasing a rental unit. Take inventory of the items headed into storage and write it down. Be sure to measure the dimensions of large bulky items like appliances and furniture. Take note of what is stackable and what is not. Plan for needing extra space so you have room to make a walkway to get to the back of your unit. Give us a call for more #storagetips, or comment with your own!

The managers at this facility were awesome!! I recently moved to the area and needed a place to store my belongings temporarily while seeking housing. The knowledgeable staff were able to find a unit that suited my needs and helped get me set up with automatic payments. I will surely recommend this location to all of my new friends in the area. Thank you American Classic!

If you need a great place for your storage needs, this is the place! I love Karen, when I do need to go into the office and speak with her, she treats me like a family member. This is very nice feeling to get when needing to talk with her. She is very nice and very approachable. Most places I visit, I do not do leave feedback. Maybe I felt like those companies didn't need the feedback, or the service was mediocre! I believer places that have excellent customer service needs to be recognized! I have been a member since 2011 and I will continue to be their customer and refer others to join if they need the space! Thank you again Karen and all your wonderful staff!

We have been storing here for 1-1/2 years and have not had any problems. Roy and Karen are wonderful people and know me by name when I walk into the office. They have a truck available for use when you need to move something locally. I recommend this place to all of my friends!

The staff at this storage facility went above and beyond my organization's expectations! We had a specific need for storage and after dealing with a competitor and having a completely unsatisfactory experience with them, American Classic was like a breath of fresh air! Outstanding service! Easy gate access, receipts emailed to us after payment is made, super friendly service and the knowledge that our valuables are safe makes it worthwhile to store our goods there! Thank you Karen and Roy!

I have been using this location of American Classic Self Storage for several yrs now. I have never once worried about my personal things from when I downsized from house to an apartment... Things that go all the way to my Great Grandmother... Grandmother...& my Moms..From the first day I started pricing storage company's and decided on this one when I called & then went to check it out... I knew this was where I wanted my things to be stored...I have nothing but Great things to say about Karen & Roy since day 1... They have always been polite & very helpful.. Not one singe time were they rude or made me feel like they didn't have the time to talk to me. I have a storage unit with another company in another state also. Can't say the same thing about that company. Thank You American Classic Storage... Karen & Roy.
