There are some items you shouldn’t store away just like that, and there are items you shouldn’t store away at all. It is very important to know the difference between them! Some items might not be adequate for storage at all, and some might be useful at any point in your move/relocation. In either way, do not store the types of items we will describe for you in our short guide. We sincerely hope that you will enjoy reading our guide as much as we enjoyed writing it! Thus, without any further ado, let us dive straight in!

Items you shouldn’t store away – where to NOT start?

You should NOT start by tossing away all your items into storage. It will never work and you can forget about saving money on relocation if you do that. Some of your items you store might ruin everything for you. Thus, do NOT do that, but DO this:

  • Contact a moving company. This is, of course, your best bet when things like this one are concerned. Why a moving company? Well, they are professionals with years and years of expertise in moving and relocation. Moreover, they can do the storage process for you much better than you ever could (if you are not a mover yourself). Feel free to contact some Clearwater Beach Movers for more information about this. We are certain that they can help you a lot with this process! Whenever you are not certain, give them a call and problem solved!
  • Know what NEVER to store. This is also very important. Knowing what to store and what not to store is very important for your move, in general. Thus, you should prepare your items for storage in advance, but only the items that are fit to go into a storage, right? So, never put anything that can rot, decompose, dry out or in any other way get damaged/destroyed or damage/destroy your other items you store. Some items also need proper preparation for storage as well. You cannot just put everything there – it does not work just like that.

If you have a lot of items for storage, consider renting a part of a warehouse for them

Some things to keep in mind

Most items can be stored safely. However, some items that cannot withstand the “test of time” are not fit for long-term storage. Thus, you should either not store them at all, or you should find ways to prepare them for storage. Keep in mind that you can reuse packing supplies you bought for your previous move. They might be useful when you are trying to store some inventory items. Moreover, if you purchased proper storage/packing supplies, you will deal with this problem much easier, right? So, save your packing/moving supplies – who knows when you might need them?

In any case, if you lack proper packing or storing supplies, you can always visit Amazon to purchase them from there. Having good packing or moving supplies for storage is essential for the entire process. Why is that so? Well, some items need to be stored under special conditions. Actually, ALL items need to be stored under special conditions. You cannot simply put all your items inside storage and expect them to remain the same after a few years. Thus, you should prepare them in the best possible way. However, keep in mind that you need to prepare those items that are fit for storage only. Do not bother with those which are not. You will only waste your time, your storage space, and, potentially, your other items due to damage.

Usually, you will only need one storage container for most parts of your move. However, feel free to rent out more if you need them!
Knowing what type/size containers you need is very important for your move in general

Items you shouldn’t store away – a shortlist

There is a shortlist of items you shouldn’t store away. This is especially important if you are hiring commercial moving Clearwater FL services. Some items can damage your documents that are important to your business. Those items, for example, are:

  • Food, drinks, anything that can rot. You should never put items that belong to those categories inside storage. The bacteria will quickly spread onto your other items and they might get damaged without the potential to repair them. After all, why would you even need to repair something you just brought out of storage, right? Thus, do not put anything that can spoil/rot over time inside storage. There are special storing conditions for such items and unless you have them, do not even think about storing them inside.
  • Leather, sensitive materials, items you need to maintain. This is also a bad idea. Most leather will simply either dry out or rot if you do not meet special storage conditions. The same goes for sensitive materials and the items you need to keep close to you at all times. Some items need to be maintained a lot if they are to function. Most old guns, for example, are like that and they need to be cleaned in order to work properly or to be resold later on. There is no point to store something you will need to fix afterward, right? Thus, do not store that at all, or find special storing conditions or leave it in the hand of the professionals!

Additional information

When it comes to storage, you need to understand some things. You can store almost anything, but you need special conditions. If we are talking about conventional storage options, you cannot store some things. It is never a good idea to do something you do not fully understand. Thus, call your moving experts and let them do the work for you. It is much better than to do it alone, right? Moreover, they are experts in the field of moving and relocation. They certainly know how to store something and what to do. So, if you doubt your skills, let the professionals do it instead!
