Now is the time to start getting ready for the holidays! Have you thought about where you will be storing gifts this year? Sometimes coming up with a good hiding spot can be difficult. Using a storage unit to store your gifts make this process easy! A storage unit not only makes for a great place to keep your gifts, but it makes preparing for the holiday much easier. You can store your decorations after the holiday too! Here are some tips for holiday storage to help you get ready.
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 also gives you time to plan ahead and have everything prepared for that special holiday tradition!
