How To: Store Off Season Clothes Original article from RealSimple was here Storing off season clothes is a great way to keep your closet uncluttered and your clothing protected. These guidelines make it hassle-free. Step 1: Start with Clean clothes The reason for this is there maybe stains or food residue that will attract moths and beetles that will eat away at your clothes. Step 2: Group clothes by fabrics This means separate your clothes into like fabrics. Your linens in one pile and your protein fibers in another. Clothes made from protein fibers are, in themselves, food for bugs Step 3: choose the right storage solution Store all your linen and protein base fabrics in a breathable canvas storage bin. Keeping your clothes in a breathable canvas bin will keep mildew and mold away from your clothes. Never store in a plastic bag or bin. Plastic traps moisture which causes mildew.

How to measure the truck size you need to move

Posted by on May 28, 2013 in The Storage Blog | 0 comments

Walk around your house and count the number of rooms in the house, then record that number. Make sure you count every room, including bathrooms and common areas. Multiply the number of rooms you have in your house by 150. Whatever number you end up with is going to be used as a cubic-foot measurement for the space in the moving truck. For example, if you have three rooms, you need 450 cubic feet of moving truck space. The general rule of thumb goes like this:   12-foot truck: 450 cubic feet 16-foot truck: 800 cubic feet 22-foot truck: 1,200 cubic feet 26-foot truck: 1,400 cubic feet Take the number of rooms you have in your house and use that number against the following scale: 15-foot truck: three rooms 20-foot truck: five rooms 24-foot truck: eight rooms Compare the two guides from steps 3 and 4 with the length of vehicles available at The Storage Company. At this point, the safest bet is to go one size larger than you actually need, just in case you need more space or have miscalculated. For example, if you have a five-room home, according to the two charts you would need either a 16-foot truck or a 20-foot truck. To make sure you have enough room in the vehicle, rent a 20- or 22-foot truck. That way, you won’t have to make two trips, which will take longer, and ultimately cost more...
