Happy Saint Patrick’s Day from your friends at Hazelwood ! Remember to wear your green, stay safe on the roads, and enjoy time with your friends and loved ones.
We are proud to be one of the leading full service moving companies in Santa Barbara. In addition to residential and commercial moving services, did you know we offer self storage for homeowners and businesses?
Storage is a great solution if you have to take temporary housing, or while you are waiting to close on a home. But smart self storage does not end with putting your stuff away and locking the padlock. Here are some tips for making the most out of a self storage unit while keeping your belongings safe and secure.
Keep your belongings off the floor. You can usually get pallets, either for free or at a reduced cost, from moving companies. Pallets are wooden structures, built like crates, that sit about six inches off the floor and provide a foundation for your items.
Wrap your belongings in plastic wrap or bubble tape when you place them in storage. This helps some items, like clothing, to take up less room. It also declutters the storage space and makes it easier to find things when you need them. But the biggest reason for wrapping your household items is to keep insects out. They can cause damage to the materials in your space, and you may not even notice right away if you are not checking the locker regularly. We offer a full range of moving supplies, including bubble wrap and plastic sheeting, for your convenience and security.
Put labels on your items to make them easy to retrieve when you are ready to clean out or remove a few items from your storage locker. It is easy for possessions to get buried underneath furniture and boxes. With labels, you will not have to go through box after box to find what you are looking for.
We hope these moving and storage tips are helpful. If you are planning a move in the near future, consider using Hazelwood Allied for your Santa Barbara movers. Whether you are moving to a new neighborhood or a new coast. No matter which moving contractor you choose, make sure they are properly licensed, certified, and insured. You can find a list of questions to ask all moving companies on our website, along with more information about our services and history in the community.
We would like to remind you about our 2017 CMSA RAFFLE, where we are raising money for scholarships and special olympics. The California Moving and Storage Association, through support of its members, offers scholarships to deserving, qualified persons interested in improving their skills in a specific vocation. The CMSA is also proud to support the Northern and Southern California chapters of the Special Olympics.
