StorPlace Self Storage Provides Helpful Tips on How to Pick the Perfect Self Storage Facility!

There are many different factors to consider when you are looking to start storing your belongings in a self storage facility.  The more research you do, the more likely you are to find a facility that can accommodate all of your needs.  Here we will speak about the things you as a customer should do before selecting the facility in which you elect to place your belongings. 

                One of the most important things to consider is location. You don’t want to be dragging your belongings up stairs, or have to drive 10 miles just to get one thing.  One would be surprised by the amount of self-storage facilities that are out there, as well as how different each can be. 

                Once you pick a location, visiting the storage facility beforehand is highly recommended .You may even want to visit more than one!  When looking at properties, make sure they have a gated keypad entry, security cameras, and ease of access to the property.  Some storage facilities have a dumpster for their tenants to use, as well as other amenities like moving carts.  If you don’t like what you see, or feel as if your belongings won’t be well taken care of, you may want to visit another facility.  Storage facility operators also highly recommend looking at the space before you rent it.  Even though you may be able to picture the dimensions in your head, when you look at the space it helps you get a better idea of how your belongings will fit into the unit.  Also, the storage unit may not be in a convenient location. You can always ask the manager if there are other units available in that size in a more convenient location if you don’t like what you see. 

                The next thing you should consider is how long you will be storing your belongings. If you are planning on storing over the warm summer months, you may want to consider a unit that is heated and cooled.  This will save those precious items that are sensitive to the warm temperatures. This is definitely helpful here in Nashville, Tennessee during the summer.  If you are only planning on storing for a short period, some items may be fine in a drive up unit.  Let’s just say you wouldn’t want to put a baby grand piano into a drive up non heated or cooled unit.

                A few other things to consider are move-in specials, late fees, and gate hours.  Some facilities have move in specials that are used to entice the customer to go with their company because it’s cheaper.  As in many other businesses, just because a unit is less expensive doesn’t make it a better fit.  You will also want to check with the storage facility about their policies and procedures when it comes to late fees.  Just like a mortgage or rent payment most storage facilities have a grace period of when the rent is due.  Make sure you carefully read their procedures and acknowledge what happens if you are ever delinquent on your rent.  Gate hours are another thing to look at.  If you are you a landscaping business that begins working before dawn, or a boating  or fisher person, you  may want to pick up your equipment or boat in the wee hours of the morning.  You will probably need 24 hour access.  Make sure to ask your facility operator if they offer 24 hour access, and if there is an additional cost.  Most facilities have reasonable gate hours, considering most people don’t need to get anything out of their units at midnight. However, StorPlace Self Storage has the longest hours of access of any  storage facility, from 6 AM to 10 PM, seven days a week. You will want to check into all of these aspects before choosing a facility to store with. The more research you do, the better you will feel about storing your goods. Stop by StorPlace Self Storage and see all of the amenities mentioned in this article.  Our friendly property managers and consultants are always ready to help out!

StorPlace Self Storage Provides Tips for Storing Fabrics and Furniture

One of the most important tips to know when using self storage to house your belongings is to always label everything correctly and packaged everything securely. Too many people just throw their items in moving boxes that are unlabeled and then ship them off to storage in their storage units. In addition to labeling everything properly, be sure to use packing materials such as peanuts or newspaper to protect anything that is fragile. Be sure to wrap your boxes in bubble wrap or some sort of plastic in an effort to protect them from flood or moisture on the ground. This prevents your paper-based boxes and packaging from absorbing any excess water from the concrete ground. StorPlace Self Storage has all these items in their offices for your convenience.

Vacuum storage bags are becoming increasingly popular. The price of vacuum storage bags has decreased considerably and is available in a wide variety of sizes. Using self storage vacuum bags to store clothing can save an immense amount of space since the point of these self storage bags is to compress everything stored in them. If most of what you are storing in your self storage unit is clothing, spending a few dollars on some self storage vacuum bags will prove to be an excellent return on your investment by keeping the clothes dry and free from dust.  Mattresses and furniture should be wrapped in some sort of plastic to protect them. At StorPlace Self Storage we offer plastic shrink wrap as well as wardrobe boxes for storing clothes.  Even if stored in temperture controlled storage, items such as these are always susceptible to mold and mildew and the last thing you want is mold growing on your mattress and clothing and furniture. It is critical to pack your mattresses and furniture correctly when putting it into self storage for any amount of time.

One of the primary benefits of renting a climate controlled storage unit is the well made construction that is difficult to penetrate. In order to maintain a constant temperature the climate controlled units are all extremely well insulated. This additional insulation helps to keep your items well protected from all weather and the humidity changes that come with it. Most regular storage units are designed to offer basic protection from weather such as wind, rain, and snow. Climate controlled units help protect items from frost, dew build up, and dampness.

There are many benefits to be had from the protection offered by the climate controlled storage units from humid weather. Most furniture damage people experience is comes as a result of humidity and exposure to extreme temperature. Electronics and other items will become permanently damaged after being exposed to damp weather for long periods of time. This damage can include rusting that leaves equipment unusable or permanently damaged. Furniture can be damaged as a result of mold or mildew that occurs because of the dampness and this mold or mildew can cause serious illness if not removed at once.

Another benefit of climate controlled storage is the protection offered from wildlife and insects. The additional insulation used to keep the climate control unit at a steady temperature also helps keep pests on the outside where they belong. Most rodents have a difficult time getting in and out of climate controlled buildings. Insects too have a hard time getting into storage controlled units and this difficulty will help protect your belongings from serious harm or from being ruined. StorPlace Self Storage sprays its properties once a month for bugs and insects. Also you will notice rodent bait traps placed around the property especially inside the buildings. StorPlace cares that your valuables are kept free from insect damage. Hopefully these tips will come in handy as you make your storage decisions.

Place Self Storage Gives Practical Tips on Packing Your Living Room and Den

This blog is a continuation of another  blog that explained how to pack your kitchen.  This article will be explaining how to pack your living room and or den.  Let’s start with the odds and ends and the knick knacks first. These items need to be placed in the small box that is sold at StorPlace Self Storage and if you have a lot of small figurines, it may be wise to use the same glass packing kit you used in the kitchen. Just a small reminder the glass packing kit is a small cardboard grid that fits into the small box and it also has form inserts that fit into the grid. This kit will work great for all those small items. Any larger knick knacks you may have should be put into the Medium Box and wrapped in either newsprint or bubble wrap (also sold at StorPlace) or possibly both. Just make sure that the boxes are completely full even if it is full of mostly paper. Next work on the lamps. StorPlace sells a lamp base box that will fit most lamps. First unplug the lamp and remove the shade and the light bulb.  Then wrap the cord around the lamp and then wrap the lamp with bubble wrap and slide it into the lamp base box. The shade of the lamp can be put in either a medium box or three large boxes depending on the size of the lamp shade.

Once you have all the lamps and knick knacks done, you will be able to start on the furniture. Let’s start with the end tables; most of them have glass on top.  So remove the glass and place it between two pieces of cardboard and wrap it with tape and then wrap it with bubble wrap. Once you get that completed, wrap the end table with shrink wrap. Shrink wrap works wonderful to keep the furniture protected and it will also keep any drawers shut. That brings us to a good point and that is to never and I do mean never put tape on your furniture to keep the draws shut as it will rip the finish right off the furniture.  The next items on the list are the couch and love seat. If they are a recliner couch or love seat, you may want to wrap the foot rest shut with shrink wrap and then place the couch covers over the couch and love seat and use tape to pull them tight. Self storage is a very good place to store precious items, especially in a temperature controlled storage unit.

The final items to move in the living room are the entertainment center and TV. The entertainment center can be packed up pretty much the same way as the end tables. Just wrap it up with shrink wrap and make sure all the doors and draws are shut and secured with the shrink wrap. Before you take out all the wires to the TV, stereo, and game stations etc, label the wires so that you will know what wire goes where when you get to your new home. As far as the TV goes, it is a wise idea to save the box it came in when you bought it to move it in and also refer to your owner’s manual on how to move the TV. The next blog will address how to pack up your bedroom.  You now are ready to set a date for the Nashville movers. Stay tuned!

StorPlace Self Storage Presents the History of Valentine’s Day Part III

Modern times

In 1797, a British publisher issued The Young Man’s Valentine Writer, which contained scores of suggested sentimental verses for the young lover unable to compose his own. Printers had already begun producing a limited number of cards with verses and sketches, called “mechanical valentines,” and a reduction in postal rates in the next century ushered in the less personal but easier practice of mailing valentines. That, in turn, made it possible for the first time to exchange cards anonymously, which is taken as the reason for the sudden appearance of racy verse in an era otherwise prudishly Victorian.

Paper Valentines being so popular in England in early 1800s, Valentines began to be assembled in factories. Fancy Valentines were made with real lace and ribbons, with paper lace introduced in mid 1800’s. The reinvention of Saint Valentine’s Day in the 1840s has been traced by Leigh Eric Schmidt. As a writer in Graham’s American Monthly observed in 1849, “Saint Valentine’s Day… is becoming, nay it has become, a national holyday.” In the United States, the first mass-produced valentines of embossed paper lace were produced and sold shortly after 1847 by Esther Howland (1828-1904) of Worcester, Massachusetts. Her father operated a large book and stationery store, but Howland took her inspiration from an English valentine she had received, so clearly the practice of sending Valentine’s cards had existed in England before it became popular in North America. The English practice of sending Valentine’s cards appears in Elizabeth Gaskell‘s Mr. Harrison’s Confessions (published 1851). Since 2001, the Greeting Card Association has been giving an annual “Esther Howland Award for a Greeting Card Visionary.” The U.S. Greeting Card Association estimates that approximately one billion valentines are sent each year worldwide, making the day the second largest card-sending holiday of the year behind Christmas. The association estimates that, in the US, men spend in average twice as much money as women.

Since the 19th century, handwritten notes have largely given way to mass-produced greeting cards. The mid-nineteenth century Valentine’s Day trade was a harbinger of further commercialized holidays in the United States to follow.

In the second half of the twentieth century, the practice of exchanging cards was extended to all manner of gifts in the United States, usually from a man to a woman. Such gifts typically include roses and chocolates packed in a red satin, heart-shaped box. In the 1980s, the diamond industry began to promote Valentine’s Day as an occasion for giving jewelry. The day has come to be associated with a generic platonic greeting of “Happy Valentine’s Day.” As a joke, Valentine’s Day is also referred to as “Singles Awareness Day.” In some North American elementary schools, children decorate classrooms, exchange cards, and eat sweets. The greeting cards of these students often mention what they appreciate about each other.

The rise of Internet popularity at the turn of the millennium is creating new traditions. Millions of people use, every year, digital means of creating and sending Valentine’s Day greeting messages such as e-cards, love coupons or printable greeting cards.

StorPlace Self Storage has 12 locaitons throughout Middle Tennessee Nashville and one in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

StorPlace Self Storage Presents the History of St. Valentine’s Day Part II (To read Part I, visit Jan. 4 blog)

Attested traditions

Lupercalia

Though popular modern sources link unspecified Greco-Roman February holidays alleged to be devoted to fertility and love to St Valentine’s Day, Professor Jack Oruch of the University of Kansas argued that prior to Chaucer, no links between the Saints named Valentinus and romantic love existed. In the ancient Athenian calendar the period between mid-January and mid-February was the month of Gamelion, dedicated to the sacred marriage of Zeus and Hera.

In Ancient Rome, Lupercalia, observed February 13 through 15, was an archaic rite connected to fertility. Lupercalia was a festival local to the city of Rome. The more general Festival of Juno Februa, meaning “Juno the purifier “or “the chaste Juno,” was celebrated on February 13-14. Pope Gelasius I (492-496) abolished Lupercalia.

It is a common opinion that the Christian church may have decided to celebrate Valentine’s feast day in the middle of February in an effort to Christianize celebrations of the pagan Lupercalia, and that a commemorative feast was established in 496 by Pope Gelasius I, of those “… whose names are justly reverenced among men, but whose acts are known only to God,” among whom was Valentine, was set for the useful day. Alternatively, William M. Green argues that the Catholic Church could not abolish the deeply rooted Lupercalia festival, so the church set aside a day to honor the Virgin Mary.

Chaucer’s love birds

While some claim the first recorded association of Valentine’s Day with romantic love is in Parlement of Foules (1382) by Geoffrey Chaucer this may be the result of misinterpretation. Chaucer wrote:

For this was on seynt Volantynys day
Whan euery bryd comyth there to chese his make.

This poem was written to honor the first anniversary of the engagement of King Richard II of England to Anne of Bohemia. A treaty providing for a marriage was signed on May 2, 1381. (When they were married eight months later, he was 13 or 14, and she was 14.)

Readers have uncritically assumed that Chaucer was referring to February 14 as Valentine’s Day; however, mid-February is an unlikely time for birds to be mating in England. Henry Ansgar Kelly has pointed out that in the liturgical calendar, May 2 is the saints’ day for Valentine of Genoa. This St. Valentine was an early bishop of Genoa who died around AD 307.

Chaucer’s Parliament of Foules is set in a fictional context of an old tradition, but in fact there was no such tradition before Chaucer. The speculative explanation of sentimental customs, posing as historical fact, had their origins among eighteenth-century antiquaries, notably Alban Butler, the author of Butler’s Lives of Saints, and have been perpetuated even by respectable modern scholars. Most notably, “the idea that Valentine’s Day customs perpetuated those of the Roman Lupercalia has been accepted uncritically and repeated, in various forms, up to the present”

Medieval period and the English Renaissance

Using the language of the law courts for the rituals of courtly love, a “High Court of Love” was established in Paris on Valentine’s Day in 1400. The court dealt with love contracts, betrayals, and violence against women. Judges were selected by women on the basis of a poetry reading. The earliest surviving valentine is a fifteenth-century rondeau written by Charles, Duke of Orleans to his “valentined” wife, which commences.

Je suis desja d’amour tanné
Ma tres doulce Valentinée…

—Charles d’Orléans, Rondeau VI, lines 1–2

At the time, the duke was being held in the Tower of London following his capture at the Battle of Agincourt, 1415.

Valentine’s Day is mentioned ruefully by Ophelia in Hamlet (1600-1601):

To-morrow is Saint Valentine’s day,
All in the morning betime,
And I a maid at your window,
To be your Valentine.
Then up he rose, and donn’d his clothes,
And dupp’d the chamber-door;
Let in the maid, that out a maid
Never departed more.

—William Shakespeare, Hamlet, Act IV, Scene 5

Finding That Perfect Storage Facility:STORPLACE SELF STORAGE IS YOUR SOLUTION

When looking for self storage, there are a couple of ways you can choose a property. If you’re looking through the Yellow Pages, searching the internet, or viewing a television commercial, you will be given a contact number for the various properties.

First, you must choose which property will be most convenient.   Sometimes, a location is chosen because it may be near work, but mostly properties are chosen because they are close to your home. Although, some properties may have different availabilities or prices, you will want to choose the property that will be most convenient and meets your storage needs. For example, although a storage unit may be a few dollars less on the other side of town; you will not want to take the time to drive the distance every time you need to visit your unit. On the other hand, if you need a temperature controlled space for your belongings and the nearest property doesn‘t offer temperature control, then you may want to drive that extra mile or so to StorPlace Self Storage in order to meet those storage needs. Remember that your first priority is to protect your belongings.  After you have chosen which property would be the most convenient, the next step is to contact the property manager.

When you call StorPlace Self Storage, one of these things will happen.  The property manager may be unable to answer the phone because they are either out on the property or with a customer. In this case, a recording will ask you whether you would like to speak with someone at the call center or leave a message for the property manager. If you speak with someone at the call center, they can give you information on the property, the units, prices, and availability. They can also reserve a unit at that particular property for you for as little as $10.00, which will be credited towards your first month’s rent. Once the call ends, the representative sends an email to the property manager at StorPlace Self Storage with all the information they have regarding your inquiry. The manager will then follow-up with any questions they may have with you or just to make sure you have directions to the storage center.  If you like, you can skip the call center and simply leave a message for the property manager, and he/she will return your call as soon as possible. However, 99% of the time you call a store, the property manager will answer right away.  Speaking directly with the property manager is the best option because on-site managers know their property better than a call center, especially if any units have recently come available that the call center has not registered yet. Property managers may also run their own specials that are only offered if you call or come to the store personally.

Upon arriving at a StorPlace Self Storage property, you will be greeted by a friendly, helpful store manager.  He or she will be able to answer any additional questions or concerns you may have regarding storage.  Once the property manager shows you the unit that was reserved, you will be the best judge as to whether your belongings will fit into that space. If, however, during the move you notice that the unit is too small or too large, contact the property manger and he/she will be able to offer a unit that is larger or smaller to accommodate your storage needs.

After finding that perfect space, the manager will ask for just a few moments of your time to fill out the appropriate paperwork for your storage unit. StorPlace Self Storage has 12 locations throughout Middle Tennessee to serve all your needs. Please come visit us at 1615 Charlotte Road, Nashville, TN 37203, or you can call us at 615-321-0400.

StorPlace Self Storage Gives Tips on How to Keep Your Moving Simple

When it comes to packing your belongings up in moving boxes for self storage, there are some specific supplies you may need. These things will make it as simple, safe and convenient as possible.  Some supplies you will need to have on hand are moving boxes, tape, bubble wrap, labels, markers and covers for your couch, mattresses and chairs. These can all be purchased at StorPlace Self Storage in Nashville Bellevue or any other storage facility.

In trying to save money, a lot of people try to get used boxes from nearby stores instead of investing in new ones. It is important to remember that used boxes can and may attract bugs. They may have contaminated food and the scent still remains in the box. They are also not as sturdy and thick. Boxes come in many different sizes. You are certain to find a box for every need.  Different types of boxes include  wardrobe boxes, small and  large mirror boxes, file boxes, dish pack boxes, and regular boxes anywhere from 1 ½ to 6 cubic feet.

You want to make sure you get plenty of tape to tape up the top and bottom of all boxes.  Depending on the number and size of the boxes you are using to move, you will have to get an estimate of how much tape you will use. Make sure you buy good quality tape, or else your box may break and you valuable and precious belongings will be everywhere.  Fragile items require special care. For these items, you may need bubble wrap.  Bubble wrap comes in many different quantities. Small bubbles are good for glass items like dishes and knick-knacks. Big bubbles are good for larger items like mirrors and pictures.

To have an organized move, you should clearly label each box. Moving labels are helpful because they stand out as opposed to regular markers. It helps to know which room each box belongs in.  You may also want to assign a priority system to each box.  For example, you would need plates and cups, but you may not need the toaster for a few days.  The more organized the better.

It is also important to cover your furniture while you move.  If your items   are going into a truck, there is a possibility that it may get dirty or rained on.  You can use mattress covers and sofa or chair covers.  Another tool that movers use is shrink wrap which tightly covers the contents so they do not get damaged during the moving process.

All of these items can be purchased at your local StorPlace Self Storage.  We even have a box kit that contains 10 small boxes, 7 medium boxes, a small mirror box, a roll of tape, and some bubble wrap.  Once you have all the supplies, moving will be much easier on you and your family.

StorPlace Self Storage 2010 Self Storage Resolution

With another New Year, there is no better time than the present to take a look at your self storage facility with a critical eye. As you examine your business, think about what is working for you and what you can improve on.  After you have thoroughly analyzed your situation, make a plan to resolve any problems you may find. Remember you may not be able to correct every issue before 2011, but you will have a head start just by having a clear understanding of your facility’s strengths and weaknesses.

The best place to start is with self examination. Yes, the area that will make the largest impact on your facility starts with the manager. Listed below are some ideas that may help improve your skills as a self storage manager.

They are as follows:

1. Learn to become a pro-active problem solver.

The New Year is a great time to improve your offensive game. If you know something is likely to escalate, like a perpetually icy patch of sidewalk or a customer who is always late, look for solutions right away. Take the initiative before a problem develops.

2. Always put yourself in your customers’ shoes.

Self storage managers are constantly faced with customers who are dealing with emotionally charged, stressful situations. Try to keep this in mind and cut your customers some slack if they are a little out of sorts or even rude. We all know what it’s like to be stressed out.

3. Write down and track your professional goals.

Whether you want to increase your facility’s retail sales or improve occupancy at your site, set some specific self storage related goals.

4. Make professional contacts.

Join groups like the Chamber of Commerce and the Better Business Bureau—they can be great resources for networking. Talk to managers at competing self storage facilities, too. They may be able to send customers your way when they do not have the specific products or storage unit sizes available to serve these clients themselves.

5. Set a specific goal for each day.

Big goals are often reached after completing a series of smaller steps. Daily goals are easy to set and are especially satisfying as you check them off at the end of the business day.

6. Strive to become a better listener.

One of the easiest steps in improving your listening skills starts by resolving to listen more than you talk. Your customers will appreciate your attentiveness and may reward your listening efforts with a referral or two. You’ll be surprised at what you can learn when you stop and listen!

7. Invest in yourself.

Do you want to move up the corporate ladder at your self storage company? Maybe you’d like to become a Certified Self Storage Manager (CSSM)? Find out what steps you need to take and make a list to follow. Then, check off your progress everyday as you move closer to meeting your goals.

8. Do something just for yourself each day.

You can’t be a great self storage manager, if you’re all business all the time.Resolve to take a little time for yourself each day. Read a book, talk with a friend, or take a moment to laugh at the end of the day—you’ll be a better self storage manager for it!
