Ways to Simplify Your Big Move with Mini Storage

Moving can be a real headache. You may have to sell some of your old furniture and belongings, find a storage rental for extra items, rent a UHaul truck, pack up all the things you want to bring with you, and drive for hours to get to your new location.

Once you arrive at your new home, your work is just beginning! You have to unpack all your belongings, decide whether to paint certain rooms, buy new items, and figure out where to place furniture and decor in your new home. Many people dread moving because of the time and effort associated with moving to a new home. Thankfully, there are ways to simplify the moving process. At Markham Mini Storage, we’re happy to give you some insider secrets about how to simplify your big move.

Make a list of everything you need to do in your old home. Do you need to vacuum and clean your old carpets or power wash the deck? Maybe you need to buy some supplies or organizational tools for your new home. Make a list of the things you need to accomplish, both before you leave your old home and once you get to your new one!

Make sure you have enough moving supplies. Stock up on boxes, packing tape, and labelers before beginning your move. Organizing all of your items makes it much easier to move. Whether you want to color code boxes by room or just write with a permanent marker, have everything at hand when you need it.

Pack similar things together. This seems like a logical step, but unfortunately many people disregard it in an attempt to pack things faster. Although it may save you some time in the short run, it will take much longer to find and unpack everything in your new home. Avoid this hassle by packing similar items (cooking pans, cleaning supplies, etc.) in the same boxes.

Rent storage if needed. If you need to make several trips between your old and new homes, or you’re downsizing, you may want to rent some storage space so you can have a place to keep all the things you don’t want to part with. Renting storage in the Middle Tennessee area has never been easier with Markham Mini Storage in Jackson, TN. We offer affordable prices on a variety of self-storage rentals.

Whether you need a small space or several larger units, you can easily find the perfect cheap storage solution at Markham Mini Storage! Contact us today to learn about our storage options and pricing plans. And good luck with the big move!
