How to Clean Out Your Storage Unit

Harris Self Storage Knows Quality Storage Unit Clean Out

Harris Self Storage in Radford, VA is ready to help you clean out your self-storage unit. You have many reasons for needing a storage unit. That could be a home renovation project you’re doing or even getting your home ready for sale. Self-storage units are a great way to help you navigate that challenging time. But, what happens when it’s time to clean it out? Check out these great tips courtesy of moving.com.

Let Your Storage Company Know When You’re Arriving and Leaving

Depending on the company, you may need to tell them that you’re moving out of your unit. Some self-storage facilities offer month-to-month rentals to make it easy for you to collect your belongings and leave. But that doesn’t mean you’ll get your money back for unused days. You could still owe for the entirety of that month.

Once you have moved out of your storage unit, make sure you inform the office. That way they can prepare for the next person.

Plan to Have a Truck or Van Available for Your Move Out

Make sure you know what you want to do with your possessions when you’re ready to take them home. Visit your self-storage unit before you move out, and make sure of everything before you move your stuff. When you move out, make sure your vehicle is roomy enough to take everything out. That goes for whether you have a truck or van of your own, or need to rent one. Contact your local moving company if you need a moving truck.

Clean Out Your Storage Unit, and Take Your Lock

Your self-storage facility may require you to maintain your unit, and clean it on the way out. You should remove all boxes and possessions from the storage unit. Give your storage unit a sweeping, and remove dirt and debris you left behind. Many renters use their own locks. If you don’t take your lock, that may create problems for your self-storage facility.
