Summer is here in full swing and for many of us that means, it’s time for vacation. Some of us take trips and some of us are making plans that are more long term. That means renting a vacation home. Whether you’re looking for a summer getaway for weekends or if you plan to go away for several months, owning or renting a vacation home involves a lot of organization.

Tips Before You Move
There are things you ought to do before you even buy.

You also want to know your costs up front so make sure you understand things like fees, utility bills, property taxes and other costs.

Next, you should consider what to pack. This is where A.B. Richards can help. Our 20-foot storage units are perfect for residential use. We can also deliver them to hard to reach locations.
