You may be planning the vacation of a lifetime or you may be taking a temporary job far from home. Or you could be staying with a family member for a long time. There are plenty of reasons you might be taking a long trip, but whatever has you packing, a long-term trip is going to present a number of challenges from financial to logistic problems.
Portable Storage Containers from A.B. Richards Will Help You Organize
One of the biggest issues may be dealing with storage. If you’re staying with a relative, you might not have enough room to combine your belongings with the belongings already in your relative’s home. If you’re going to be away for a long time, you might be considering renting your home out to help pay for the trip. Whatever you may be planning, you’ll also need to organize. A.B. Richards can help. We have portable storage containers that can keep your personal property secure if you’re leaving home or staying away from home. Our containers will also help you organize what could be a life-changing trip.
Organizing Belongings Before You Go
If you’re going on a long-term trip, you might want to use it as an opportunity to organize your belongings so you can pack but also declutter. The travel website BootsnAll says that it’s an excellent idea to sift through your belongings and try to decide what’s worth keeping before packing them in a storage unit. If you’re looking for a storage container for residential use, our 20-foot storage containers fit the bill. These containers are designed to fit on smaller pieces of property.
Now that you’re ready to declutter, be honest about what you want to keep and what you’re going to get rid of. Separate your materials into stuff you’re definitely going to keep, things you’re definitely going to get rid of, and a pile of items you’re unsure about. Consider donating the items you no longer wish to keep or consider selling them online. Or have a yard sale.
Make Certain Your Valuables Are Secure
Once you’ve decided what to keep, a big concern will be your valuables. You may want to take some of them on the trip, but you want to make certain that what you leave behind remains safe. That’s why you should rent your portable storage container from A.B. Richards. Our containers are sturdy. They are made of 14-gauge steel and they are weatherproof, an important consideration when you’re going to be away for a long time. If your stuff is going to be stored for a long time, you’re going to need to make sure your storage unit isn’t going to be affected by the constantly changing weather in the northeast. Our containers have completely secure sealing doors.
