5 Reasons To Store Holiday Gifts In A Storage Unit This Holiday Season


Keeping presents hidden during the holidays can be difficult if you have a home that is already packed with items and with nosey family members. If you have family that hunts for their presents year after year, throw them for a loop by storing their presents in a storage facility this year. The following guide walks you through a few of the benefits of storing holiday presents in a storage facility rather than storing them at your home.

Keep Items Safe and Secure

You do not want to risk storing the presents in a shed or your car until the holidays arrive because someone could steal the items. Keeping them in a storage unit allows you to secure them so that no one can gain access to them except for you.

Keep Items Organized

Storage units are available in many different sizes so you can store large or small items in an organized fashion. You can always know what you have already purchased. Storing the gifts in a storage facility allows you to have ample room to stack items so you do not have to worry about them being damaged while they are being stored.

Only Rent for a Temporary Time Period

Many storage facilities allow you to rent the storage unit for as long or as short a period of time as you would like. This allows you to rent the unit for a few weeks to a full month rather than having to be locked into a six month or year long contract.

Ensure Gifts Are Actually a Surprise

Storing gifts at a friend or family member's house is not a good idea because they could spill the beans to your loved ones and ruin the surprise. Storing the gifts in the storage facility ensures that your secrets stay safe and no one finds out what they are getting ahead of time.

Renting a storage facility is a very quick and easy process. You will have to pay a security deposit when you rent the unit so that the facility can make any necessary repairs to the unit, if you cause damage to it while you are storing your items in it. If you do not cause any damage, the facility will return the money to you when you terminate your rental agreement with them after the holiday season.

Packing More Efficiently

When I realized that my things would be in storage for a few years, I realized that packing efficiently was going to be the key to my success. Instead of tossing everything into boxes and hoping for the best, I worked slowly and deliberately, carefully wrapping knick-knacks and family heirlooms. I didn't want anything to get crushed or damaged while it was in storage. I loaded my storage unit carefully, and made a map of where everything went. It might seem silly, but my careful preparations made a huge difference when I unloaded my unit later. Check out this website for tips on how to pack more efficiently.
