It's nearly Christmas time again: time for family, food, giving, and time to remember which moving boxes contain what decorations and where the heck you stored them!
If you are like many people, you'll begin the season wondering where you've stored the ornaments, tinsel, lights, garlands, wreaths and other decorations. You'll search for these things stored in moving boxes or old gift boxes - stowed in various locations around your home. They take up space in the garage or basement, closets, maybe even under the bed. Some items will be missing and never found, broken or hidden beneath a tangle of light strands and tinsel. The problem isn't the decorations…it's storage, or, rather, the lack thereof! For many people, this all too common scenario plays itself out year after year. Why not find a permanent home for these sentimental (and expensive) decorations so: 1) you can find them, 2) they are safe, and; 3) they don't clutter up your home?
If you've rented a moving truck, or are packing your own truck or van, to move things to our Kamloops storage facility, you’ll need some packing supplies, moving boxes and a little know-how. The art of truck packing is simple to learn if you follow a few basic rules. Foremost in your mind should be the safety of your belongings. Packing a truck properly also maximizes space, so you'll make fewer trips and spend less on the truck rental time and fuel costs.
