If you’re moving to Montgomery, you’re coming to one of Alabama’s best cities. With a big art scene, an amazing zoo, and the state history museum.

Iron Guard Storage units in Montgomery, AL, have a few packing and decluttering tips if you’re moving to our great city. 


Packing Tips  


Moving is never fun and usually a stressful and chaotic time. Luckily, if you’re moving to Montgomery you’re bound to have friendly and fun people all around when you arrive.

To simplify your packing, be sure to label everything first. Use labels that won’t peel or crack, and be very thorough in labeling your boxes.

Also, if you’re planning on taking towels and sheets, use them as filler inside your boxes, particularly those with fragile or valuable items.

If after your move you realize you have a few more things than you thought, Iron Guard has self-storage in Montgomery, AL, making it easy to store any excess things you may need extra space for.

Moving Tips   

When planning your move, consider the weather. Montgomery can have heavy rain, so try and check the forecast before setting your date. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, make sure to have plenty of towels and rags available to keep your items as dry as possible.

If hiring movers, be sure to keep plenty of hand sanitizer around to keep everyone safe and healthy. Always lay down plastic, tarps, or towels down if you have flooring that could be dirtied or damaged by movers coming in and out.

And, if you need storage in Montgomery, AL, during your move, Iron Guard has the space you need at the prices you want.


Tips For Decluttering

Once you’re moved in, you may realize you’ve got more items than you have space. Not to worry! Using self-storage is a great way to free up space around your home, and Iron Guard has storage units in Montgomery, AL, to help declutter your space.

When going through your things and deciding what to keep, separate things in order of use. Things you use daily, keep in one pile. Things that are used occasionally or seasonally, put in a different pile and consider self-storage in Montgomery, AL, to keep your home decluttered. If you find items you rarely use or didn’t even know you had, donate them to a local thrift store or take them to the dump.



Self-Storage Tips


Once you’ve secured your storage in Montgomery, AL, be sure to pack the unit up smart. Be sure to label everything, just like you did when you were moving. Stack the heaviest boxes on the bottom, and be sure to leave a path inside your storage unit so you can easily access your items. Always leave your most used items near the front of your storage so you can get to them quickly and easily.
