How to Save Room Over the Holidays with Self-Storage

The holidays tend to be a busy time of year, packed with parties, festive decorations, houseguests, presents and more. If the clutter is cramping your style, ezStorage can lend a helping hand for this holiday season.

Free Up a Guest Room with Holiday Storage

When family and friends visit this season, you might end up with more guests than your home can handle. If you have an exercise, activity or “junk” room, consider placing some or all of those items in a self-storage unit to make a temporary guest room available. A few boxes here and there might not be a problem for the attic, basement or garage, but getting bigger, bulkier items up and down stairs or ladders can be difficult or downright dangerous!

A self-storage unit gives you more space and greater flexibility in how you store and organize your belongings. With units ranging in size from 5’ x 5’ all the way up to 10’ x 30’ (and with most units generally measuring 8’ in height), ezStorage has a number of options for you. Our storage unit size guide can help you find the right space to fit your needs. There are other features to consider like climate-controlled storage, interior units and drive-up units. You can learn more about ezStorage facilities from our video guides, and our knowledgeable self-storage professionals are ready to answer any additional questions you might have.

Santa’s Helpers Can Use Holiday Self-Storage

It’s easy for jolly old Saint Nick to keep his presents a surprise until Christmas Day; they’re hidden away at the North Pole! If you need a hand keeping prying eyes off the prize inside of a package, an offsite storage location might be just the ticket. The gates are accessible during the week so you can store the holiday stash after a long day of shopping.

Christmas Decoration Storage

Once the holidays are over, it’s time to stow away all of those lights, stockings, ornaments and other festive items. Take this opportunity to clear out broken items that cannot be repaired. Pack any delicate items carefully with tissue paper or bubble wrap and in separate containers whenever possible. You can organize items with storage bins or boxes to make next year’s setup even easier. Keeping an itemized list of each container’s contents is one gift you’ll be glad you gave yourself next winter! If you need a hand with moving and packing supplies, stop by your nearest ezStorage facility so we can help.
