Are you a snowbird? Do you have a winter home in some glorious warm weather area like Florida or Arizona? Or maybe your idea of a winter home is in an area where there’s actual snow along with skiing and snowmobiling. If you have someplace where you’re planning to have fun, enjoy. But you probably also know that relocating from your home in the northeast to somewhere else, requires quite a bit of organization. That’s where A.B. Richards can help.
A.B. Richards is the Place to Go for Seasonal Storage
A.B. Richards rents portable storage containers for all types of purposes. If you’re looking to store items while you’re away, we can make it much easier for you. Instead of lugging your stuff all the way across town, we can bring your portable storage unit right to you. For example, our 20-foot storage containers are perfect for residential use. We can get these containers onto property where space is limited and give you the convenience of being able to easily access your items throughout the winter. So we want to give you some tips about organizing your seasonal home.
What to Do When You Get There
When you arrive at your winter home, there’s going to be a lot of work to do. According to the website House Logic, there are things that you should work on to get the house ready including:
- Cleaning and stocking the kitchen and bathrooms
- Cutting lawns and trimming trees and shrubbery
- Clearing walkways and driveways
- Setting up outdoor furniture
- Replacing furnace filters and switching on utilities
If you’re relocating for the winter, that means there’s going to be a lot of moving parts as far as storage is concerned. You’ll need a place to store the outdoor furniture before it’s ready to be moved. You’ll need to store your lawn and gardening equipment as well as any snow blowers or snow removal items if you’re heading to a home in a colder zone.
And you’re going to need to stock the house. If you have kitchen and bathroom items, food or if you have clothing or furniture, you might need to store them for a while before your winter home is ready to go. Not to mention the equipment you need for your winter fun. Beach gear for warm locations and skis and snowboards for colder spots.
If you have a large amount of equipment or items to store, you should consider a 40-foot storage container. For harder to store items you might also want to try our 40-foot Jumbo storage containers which have an extra foot of headroom. It’s great for being able to pack away awkwardly shaped furniture or taller items.
