It’s That Time of Year Again

With

 

That time of year has arrived when the days get longer, and it becomes easier to do something about the carpet stains, dust and stale air that have built up during the last few weeks and, perhaps, months. Finally, you can throw open all of the windows and let in the fresh air without freezing. Now, get ready to revitalize your home with a good spring cleaning and StoreRight Self Storage can help. Whether you conduct a full-house cleaning once a year or once a month, you may want to consider renting a storage unit at StoreRight Self Storage to get things out of the way during the process. StoreRight Self Storage is a great place to store items for the long-term and short-term, for those items you’re not ready to toss, sell or donate.
Clean from the top down, dusting and washing ceiling fans, light fixtures and corners first. Then wipe and wash walls, windows, counters, furniture and floors. Try cleaning windows from the inside from left to right and the outside from the top down. This will make it easier to tell which side has streaks. Replace smoke detector batteries, test the smoke detectors and give them a good wipe down. Clear counters and shelves and wash them thoroughly. If you have accumulated stacks of papers or bills, now is a good time to file the important documents in your storage unit. Recycle junk mail, outdated magazines. Shred old bills and other papers that contain personal information. Pull out appliances and wash the sides and floor.

When cleaning mattresses and other furniture, consider laying down a tarp and leaving the bedding and upholstery outside on the driveway for a few hours. Some strong sunlight and ultraviolet radiation can help eradicate microscopic creatures that are trying to take up residence there. A thorough steam cleaning may leave your furniture feeling and smelling fresh also. If you plan to paint or thoroughly shampoo the carpets, consider moving your furniture into a storage unit. StoreRight Self Storage has Wardrobe boxes so you can sort through seasonal clothes. A wardrobe box helps keep clothes looking good.

 

As you clean, you may find leaky faucets, broken door handles or cracked tiles. Take time to make these repairs now to prevent them from becoming more serious or costly problems later. Get seldom used tools out of the way when you are done with the repairs by placing them in your storage unit at StoreRight Self Storage. Remember the small stuff. Sweep the corners where your vacuum does not reach, wash down air vents & wipe crown molding.

 

Don’t forget the outside of the house. Use a power sprayer to remove grime, empty wasps’ nests and spider webs from exterior walls and windows. Spray down the garage floor while you are at it to rid the space of fluid leaks or sand that can easily be tracked inside and stain your carpet. Clean it. A good spraying with the hose will usually do the trick.

The StoreRight Self Storage Christmas Story

For those of you who missed it, this is a re-publish from 2012.

Twas the month before Christmas and I said to my Spouse

We’re getting company, there’s no room in this house.

The closets are packed clear up to the ceiling,

What to do just had us reeling.

 

Perhaps to the garage, we could move it out there,

But when we opened the door, not a spot anywhere.

We searched the whole house to find vacant space,

Not under the bed, there just was no place.

 

I turned in a hurry to look somewhere else,

Then tripped over a box and tore my blouse.

Thoughts of our guests taking such a fall,

Was not very appealing at all.

 

When I picked myself up and turned on the light,

The answer was there on a magnet from StoreRight.

We knew in a minute what we had to do,

Call StoreRight and rent a unit or two.

 

The process was easy and quick as a wink,

And the prices were less than one would think.

The staff was so caring and wonderfully kind,

I soon would be leaving my clutter behind.

 

We started our clean out with a bounce in our step,

The more we cleaned out, the greater our pep.

With visions of clothes actually hung in the closets,

More trips to the storage to make our deposits.

 

We wondered why we waited so long,

To make room for things where they belong.

Our joy and delight was heard in our chatter,

With each step we took up and down the ladder.

 

Before we knew it the closets were clean,

We even found a few things we’d never seen.

We hurried to the garage to start on it next,

When on my phone came an urgent text.

 

Twas the neighbor next door who heard all the clatter,

And was on her way over to see what was the matter.

I stopped for a moment and shared our plan,

And while she was there, I sold her a fan.

 

We gave her the number for StoreRight to call,

It’s definitely the place for one and all.

She hurried off with lightning speed,

Our suggestion for storage she was going to heed.

 

We finished our clean out in a timely manner,

And decided to add this to our yearly planner.

No more clutter, just extra space,

We hosted our guests with elegant grace.

 

Our neighbor is happy her clean out is done,

Says StoreRight Self Storage is number one.

Our lives are better for now we can share,

A house with no clutter anywhere.

 

So get into your car and go straight away,

To StoreRight Self Storage before the end of the day,

The people are friendly and you’ll get the deal,

StoreRight’s customer service is absolutely real.

 

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL FROM ALL AT STORERIGHT

Continuation Of the Birth of StoreRight Self Storage

In May of this year, I told you all about the Birth of StoreRight Self Storage. Well, a lot has happened since May. So, for those of you who haven’t read it yet, you can now do so. For those of you who did read the Blog in May, you can now hear the rest of the story.

Once upon a time, not long ago in he year 2010, there were 3 guys who were friends and family ( 2 Brother’s-in-law and a Dad actually) that decided they wanted to expand their office space and perhaps get into other types of Real Estate. After all, they had backgrounds, not only in real estate, but also in law and accounting. They heard about a Self Storage conference and trade show in Las Vegas and decided it might be an interesting challenge to attend and learn about the Self Storage Business. Besides, they all could use the vacation. So, off these three guys went. They had a great time and really thought the world of Self Storage may be what they were looking for. They took Self Storage courses, talked to Self Storage Investors and before they knew it, they found a Self Storage Facility in Lecanto they liked. They were able to work a deal and in 2011, StoreRight Self Storage Was the name of their brand new Self Storage Business. Since none of them had any hands on experience in the Self storage Business, they decided to work with the managers at the Lecanto Facility and do everything the manger would do in order to really learn and understand Self Storage. After many months, they thought they had it all figured out and went searching for another Facility to buy, which they found in Ocala. This would be StoreRight Self Storage Ocala 2 location. They found it was in their best interest to keep the managers of these Self Storage Facilities since they already knew the Business and operations, if the managers wanted to remain. Before long, in early 2012, StoreRight Self Storage, Brooksville 3 was born, followed by StoreRight Winter Haven 4 and StoreRight Self Storage, Vero Beach 5. Needless to say, these guys were hooked on the Self Storage Business and wanted more.The search was on and with the additions of StoreRight Self Storage Recker Hwy. 6 in 2013 and StoreRight Self Storage Tampa 7 in 2014 and StoreRight Self Storage Ocala 8 in 2015, they now had 8 Self Storage Facilities in 4 years. Oh, how happy was this new StoreRight Family. They had grown fairly quickly, but  are still not done. currently, the StoreRight Self Storage Family consists of 25 employees ( managers, assistant managers, maintenance personnell, etc.) with the Corporate Office located in Lakeland, Fl. The hunt is still on for more Self Storage Facilities and more than likely, this StoreRight Self Storage Family will continue to grow. Watch closely to see where it all goes. Well, since that Blog of May, 2015, StoreRight has continued to grow. It now has 10 Facilities after adding Jacksonville 9 and Ruskin 10 just since May. They have hired a Director of Operations to oversee all 10 Facilities and have hired more people for their Lakeland, Fl. Corporate Office. I really do not think StoreRight is finished yet. What do you think?

Storage Insight from a 4 Year Old

When you think about storage all that comes to mind is that it’s a place to keep your items that you can’t store at your home. Once you put your items in storage it’s out of sight out of mind. You make your payment every month and go on with the bigger things in your life. Even as an employee of a storage facility I don’t always think about how important storage can be, that is until my 4 year old starts asking questions.

My family and I live on-site at the facility I work at. My kids ask questions all the time like many curious children do. My 4 year old asked me why people leave their homes at our house, talking about the RV’s parked in our outside parking area. As he’s asking this question I can see the wheels turning and another question is about to follow. Before I can answer the first question he asks if the people live in there because he doesn’t see people going in or out of them. I then explain to him that the people don’t live in these “houses” right now, they have regular houses and they do not have the space to park them in their driveways. I explain to him that when people go camping or on vacation they take these mobile houses with them to live in instead of staying in hotels. For a 4 year old he is fascinated by this phenomenon and of course starts asking all the “why” questions.

One of my jobs in the mom department is to educate my children, so when they have questions I try my best to answer all of them, even the millions of why questions. One of the best feelings is when you answer the questions your children have and you too learn more about your job or life through your children. My 4 year old leads on with other questions about the units and why do people need to put their stuff in them. I explain to him that people need units to keep their stuff safe while moving from one house to another or just need extra space to store the items they don’t use everyday. I have a storage unit and so I took him to our unit to show him some of the items we keep in our unit. He was in awe when he saw the Christmas decorations and some of the keep sake stuff I had in their from when he was a baby.

In conclusion of this whole lesson he finally tells me that if we didn’t run a storage place then people wouldn’t be able to keep everything they needed and they wouldn’t be able to go on vacation. (His exact words!) I laughed to myself thinking about how the simplicity and complexity of his mind was working at the same time to understand that concept and I was one happy momma that he understood the basic reasoning for storage. It’s funny how as adults we go through life just accepting what we see or what we are told, we don’t question for further explanation or knowledge. The more questions my 4 year old asked the more appreciation I had for the small things in life such as storage and all the aspects of the storage business. It’s truly amazing how much we can learn from a 4 year old while teaching them at the same time.

Believe it or not, by my 4 year olds curiosity in my job I have learned to pay more attention in the storage world and become a better employee. I have also started looking at the reasons (big & small) of why storage is so important to everybody, which helps our facility have the best customer service in our area. So next time you feel annoyed by all the “why” questions from a child just remember you will always learn something new from their questions and their view of the situation and it will help you appreciate everything in life a little more.
