Seven Tips to a Better Home Office

According to the US Census Bureau, In 2010, 13.4 million people worked at least one day at home per week, an increase of over 4 million people (35 percent) in the last decade. There is a vastly expanding workforce of people who need to carve out a workspace for themselves in their own homes. This presents many challenges as we all know we have too much stuff.

Where do you find a spot for your home office? What things could be moved around or possibly put into storage to free up space in your home? Here are our top seven tips for organizing your home office.

1. Nooks and Crannies
We all need more space. When you are working within limits of a smaller space, you can reclaim an unused corner or nook by fitting in a desk and filing cabinet. You can even make a hallway, closet or an old amoire into an office space, as long as it is quiet and distraction free.

2. Double Duty
Multi-use furniture is your friend. Use ottomans for extra storage or maybe use a vanity as a desk. Get creative here because multiuse furniture can be immensly helpful in saving space.

3.Erect Barriers
Room dividers, screens, bookcases can all serve as visual and sometimes audible barriers that would keep a feeling of being in a private space.

4.Perfect Your Posture
Make sure you have a good, comfortable chair. Investing money into a quality chair is important considering how much you will be sitting there. Better sitting leads to a more productive work experience.

5. Continuity and Theme
With your storage boxes and accessories, choose consistent neutral and calming tones. Make the look and feel similar for all of your office items. This helps remind you that your time spent there is for working.

6. Head North
Remember if you don’t have the horizontal space to spread out, be sure to go up. You an install sturdy shelves or cabinetry and keep relevant supplies handy.

7. Box it up
Sometimes you just need to take the plunge and rent a storage unit. Take that furniture, extra physical assets that you just can’t let go of and put it into a storage unit. These units can be delivered to your home and at your own pace, you can fill it with the things you want to keep, but just don’t want to keep at home.

Use these tips when creating and organizing your home office. Rent a storage unit from us with these specials and remember that military and student discounts apply. Reserve online today or call us directly at 770–487–8220.

Mobile Storage Units for Armed Service Members

Category : Uncategorized

For many members of the armed service, getting deployed is a very real possibility. Now some deployments can be short term ( a few months or less) and some can be long term (up to several years). But either way, they are always nerve-racking. And one of the many concerns facing a soon to be deployed service member is: what am I going to do with my possessions while I’m away?

Mobile storage units are a great option in this situation. Most mobile storage unit companies offer a discount to armed service members (10% usually), which is good, but ours is usually well below that. The units  offer great security and are usually cheaper than standard storage units (sometimes as much as 50% cheaper per foot). And even more than that when factoring in the military discount!

They also offer great flexibility. Mobile storage units can be rented for a few weeks or several years depending on your needs. So whether you’re being deployed for a couple months or longer, they will have you covered!

All in all it is one less thing you and your loved ones have to worry about while dealing with the stress of deployment. You call the mobile storage unit company, they send one of the units to your home, you pack it up, and they haul it away. What could be simpler than that? And simple is definitely something you need when dealing with an impending deployment.

Another great thing is that there are a variety of sizes of storage units to choose from.  Don’t have a lot of stuff?  Get a small storage unit.  Have a ton of stuff? Get a large storage unit.

But what about the cost?  Doesn’t it cost a pretty penny to rent a storage unit?  Well on average renting a mobile storage unit is often much cheaper than renting a standard storage unit.  Especially if you only need one for a semester or two.

Home Emergency Checklist When Storing Your Possessions

Category : Uncategorized

What do you do when disaster strikes and everything in your home has been damaged? Unfortunately, you aren’t human if you haven’t experienced a home emergency. Whether you are a renter or a homeowner, things like water damage, fire and other events can wreak havoc on your home and your possessions. After you’ve called your insurance company, after you’ve determined just what will be remaining, you will probably need storage in the interim to get you through the repairs that take place. Here are some tips when going through your things to determine  how to store them:

  • First purchase boxes and other packing supplies.
  • Price out what you can afford
  • Start with a checklist of large items such as furniture, that you need storage for. Remember to measure these items so you know the size storage unit you will need.
  • Once you know your measurements, price out what you can afford in terms of storage units. You may want to rent a space without a contract because the length of time needed could vary.
  • Begin boxing all items that haven’t been damaged and create a detailed inventory list, which could be useful later for insurance purposes.
  • Create a section of your home that will be dedicated to damaged items, also inventory this list for insurance purposes.
  • Set aside personal items you will need to have for daily needs, toiletries, a good amount of clothing, computers, important documents and bills that need immediate attention.
  • Determine if the storage company you choose has vehicle parking in case you need to park an RV or auto.

No one likes to go through home emergencies, but keeping your things safe while you are in the process will give you peace of mind beyond measure. Call us about our specials today or make a reservation directly and we can help get you through it. We also offer movers and truck rentals if needed.
