Moose Jaw Self Storage Units Aren’t Just for Stashing Junk

At SaskWatch Storage in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, we would like to take this opportunity to Thank our many loyal customers at our mini storage facility. In fact, since opening our doors in 2011 we continue have many of our original customers.

ToolStorageA key to this is that many people who use our self storage units aren’t just stashing junk. In fact, renting a unit from us is a very cost effective business strategy for many business owners and entrepreneurs.

We continue to host tradespeople like drywall, electrical and plumbing folks that use their units to warehouse supplies. It’s convenient and affordable. Others have stored their clothing lines and other physical products they sell from home.  We have even had larger businesses that store financial records, especially the ones that CRA is asking you to keep for 7 years.

Self storage in Moose Jaw from our perspective is as much about convenient domestic use as it is about savvy business owners taking advantage of an opportunity right within their own community. If your a small business owner in Moose Jaw and want to know more about how we can serve you, feel free to contact our manager Kathy directly at 1(306) 630-2526.

Thank you everyone in Moose Jaw and we hope you have a wonderful July 1st celebration in Crescent Park!

There’s No Place Like Home…Spring Clearing Tips

Moose Jaw Mini StorageAt SaskWatch Storage we really love how Dorothy and Toto have taken to self storage in Moose Jaw 🙂

Now that warmer spring weather is just around the corner, we thought it would be a good idea to share a few more Storage Tips as you do a little Spring Cleaning around the house and make the most out of your mini storage unit.

Boxes:
Free stuff is always great! There’s no better place to get your boxes than to ask around the local business community. Often you can get sturdy boxes for free from places such as the liquor store, simply by asking.

Remember, pick out uniform-sized boxes to help with the stacking and keep things stable…especially if you do not have any shelves to put things onto.

Do your best to maximize the capacity of each box. Do not overfill or under fill them, as this will affect your stability and stacking process.

Plastic Bins:
This is a trend that we have certainly seen with our customers. More and more people are using plastic bins that are pre-formed for stacking.

Clear ones offer a convenient look inside at the contents. If you are using regular plastic bins, be sure to clearly label the ends (both of them) so that it is easy to re-locate your stuff.

organized-storage-roomLastly, be careful not to overpack them with heavy items like books as this is difficult to more around. If you have the time, make a list of key items in each box and label it. Keep this list at home and printed out. It’s really handy if you ever have to send someone else in to pick something up for you.

These are great for storage units without climate control as they help prevent moisture and dust from getting into your stuff.

When packing fragile items into your boxes or bins, don’t be afraid to grad some dish towels or clothing to wrap them up. This will help protect things from getting damaged or broken during the move in/ out phase.

Finally, as this is a “Spring Clean Up” blog post, don’t be afraid to get rid of the things you don’t need anymore. Donate to local charity, family or friends, hold a garage sale, or simply chuck it. Give yourself a break and stop packing around the things that you don’t need anymore 🙂

All the best and have a wonderful March!
