Storing Appliances | Mini-storage Greenville, NC

At Stow and Go Storage, we are all about providing you with quality mini-storage options and unbeatable customer service. That’s why we offer two state-of-the-art storage facilities in the Greenville, NC area. With two locations and a variety of unit sizes to choose from, you are sure to find mini-storage that meets your specific needs.

Appliances are bulky and take up a lot of space in your home or office. So, if you need to free up space, but you’re not ready to get rid of your appliance(s) altogether, we can help you with our number of mini-storage units.

Here are some appliance storage tips to help you out:

  • If you plan to store any of your appliances, it’s important that you get a climate controlled unit. Extreme temperatures can impact your appliances otherwise.
  • While appliances take up a good deal of space in a storage unit, you can also use them to store other things. For example, you can store linens inside of a dryer in storage.
  • Unless you plan on retrieving the appliance soon, it’s a good idea to place your heavier appliances towards the back of the storage unit so that you don’t have to move them when you’re trying to find something.
  • Place a blanket or tarp over your appliances, and then you can stack boxes and other smaller items on top of them to make the most of your storage space.
  • If the appliance has any extra parts or cords, be sure to keep them with the appliance in storage. You can put them in a plastic bag or tape them to the appliance itself.

Prepare for Spring and Summer | Mini-storage Greenville, NC

At Stow and Go Storage, we are all about providing you with quality mini-storage options and unbeatable customer service. That’s why we offer two state-of-the-art storage facilities in the Greenville, NC area. With two locations and a variety of unit sizes to choose from, you are sure to find mini-storage that meets your specific needs.

The weather is getting warmer, the sun is shining, and the official start to spring is just around the corner. That means that it’s the perfect time to swap out your seasonal storage in preparation for the spring and summer months ahead.

Our mini-storage units are a great way for you to free up space in your home. For example, in the winter months, you might have larger items that you want to take out of storage, such as an artificial Christmas tree, sleds, snow shovels, and bulky winter coats. However, when the weather starts to get warmer, you don’t have any use for these things, and they just clutter up your home. With a mini-storage unit, you can put those items away until you need them next year.

When spring hits, you can take out those items for the warm months, such as kiddy pools, pool floats, beach chairs, and coolers. In fact, you can just swap out seasonal items, taking your spring and summer items with you, while leaving your winter items behind in storage until you need them again next year. It’s the perfect solution to help you keep your home organized while you enjoy the changing seasons.

Climate vs. Non-Climate Controlled Units | Mini-storage Greenville, NC

At Stow and Go Storage, we are all about providing you with quality mini-storage options and unbeatable customer service. That’s why we offer two state-of-the-art storage facilities in the Greenville, NC area. With two locations and a variety of unit sizes to choose from, you are sure to find mini-storage that meets your specific needs.

At Stow and Go Storage we offer a number of storage units to meet your storage needs. We offer both climate controlled and non-climate controlled units. So what’s the difference between the two, and which is best for you?

According to ezstorage.com, non-climate controlled units are not heated or cooled, which means they are subject to the extreme temperatures outdoors. Climate controlled units are heated and cooled from within in order to even out the fluctuating temperatures outdoors. Depending upon the climate where you live as well as what items you plan to store, you may or may not need a climate controlled unit.

Most items are fine to be stored in a non-climate controlled unit. However, certain items are likely to get damaged in such units and should be stored in a climate-controlled unit instead. These items include: wooden furniture, electronics, cars, record collections, and toys.

Whether you need a climate or a non-climate controlled unit, we have both options for you. Come to see us at Stow and Go Storage in Greenville, NC for all of your mini-storage needs.

Storing Your Artificial Christmas Tree | Mini-storage Greenville, NC

With the holidays over, many people are taking down their Christmas trees and putting them in storage until next year. If you’d like to keep your tree up a little longer, there is an emerging trend where people decorate their tree for Valentine’s Day to give them a little more time with their festive decorations. However, if you’re ready to free up space in your home and take down the decorations, we have a few storage tips for you for your artificial tree.

The first thing you want to do is to take all of the ornaments and lights off of your tree. Be sure to wrap any fragile ornaments before you pack them away. 

If you plan to put your tree into a box, whether it’s the original box it came in or a storage box you’ve purchased, dissemble the tree. Fold in the branches before you place them in their box to both save storage space and keep the branches from getting damaged. If you plan to use a storage bag for your tree, you probably won’t need to take any of the tree apart. Whichever storage option you use, be sure to protect your tree from dust, mold, etc. by storing it in something. Don’t ever just leave your tree out uncovered while in storage.

During the winter months, store your summer clothes in your mini-storage unit and vice versa.

Free up space in your garage by storing items that are taking up space. Then, you can use your garage in the way it’s intended: for your cars.

Depending on what you plan to store, a climate-controlled unit might be the best option for you. Some items don’t hold up well to extreme hot and cold from shifts in the weather. So, it’s best to keep these items in a climate-controlled unit where you can rest assured that they won’t get damaged by the shifting temperatures.

  • For example, it’s best to store furniture in a climate-controlled unit. Exposure to extreme heat and cold can warp wood and damage leather.
  • Electronics are another thing that you don’t want to expose to extreme temperatures.
  • Photography, like furniture, can become warped from the shifting temperatures.
  • If you have a treasured vinyl record collection, you’ll definitely want to store these in a climate-controlled storage unit.
  • Most collections you have, in fact, such as a stamp collection, coin collection, or wine collection should also be stored in a climate-controlled unit.
