Holiday storage Fairless Hills PA

As the holidays are quickly approaching, now is the time to start planning. Planning earlier helps make the holiday season a breeze. Whether you buy your presents early or are a last minute shopper, finding a hiding place for gifts can be tricky. A storage unit is the perfect hiding place! Storing your gifts can keep the magic of the holiday season in your house and make the holiday much easier! Rent one to wrap and store your gifts today! Here are a few tips on storing during the holidays to be sure your holiday season is as smooth as possible.

Know Gate Hours

Unless you have prior arrangements confirmed with the manager, know the gate hours of your facility. If your gifts are being stored, you need to retrieve them from your unit during the designated hours. This allows you to plan ahead for the holiday and make sure everything is ready!

Organize items

Be sure to store your items in a fashion that allows you to efficiently and quickly gather your gifts to take back to your house. If your gifts are organized in your storage unit, retrieving them will be easy! Here are some tips on organizing your gifts:

  • -Re-use old boxes or containers
  • -Color code boxes, storage bins, or wrapping paper
  • -Label boxes with a smudge-proof marker
  • -Store same type of gifts together
  • -Store gifts for the same person together
  • -When storing light strings, wrap them around paper tubes from wrapping paper to prevent tangling

Protect Gifts & Decorations

Protecting gifts is one of the most important steps! Make sure your gifts stay safe by following these tips when choosing your unit and storing your presents:

  • -Keep climate control in mind
  • -Keep unit size in mind
  • -If storing fragile items, use bubble wrap / tissue paper
  • -Use leftover wrapping paper to further protect ornaments / decorations (shred it)
