Benefits of Climate Controlled Storage


Warning: include(/home/acwhite/public_html/wp-content/themes/AC White/inc/meta.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/acwhite/public_html/wp-content/themes/AC White/archive.php on line 38

Whether planning a local or long distance move, temporary storage is often a necessity. Storage of excess items can be helpful when getting a home ready to sell. When it becomes necessary to vacate a property before the next one is ready to occupy, storage is a must. Climate controlled storage may be the best option when a long period of time is involved.

Climate controlled storage means that goods are kept at a constant temperature, typically between 55 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit. Humidity levels can also be controlled. Extreme variations in temperature and humidity can damage wood furniture, causing cracking of wood, warping of items, and expanding and contracting due to heat and cold. Climate controlled storage should always be considered when storing antiques and irreplaceable items.

High levels of humidity can lead to rust and corrosion, particularly in appliances, electronics, and photography equipment. Mold and mildew can ruin fabrics, upholstery, leather goods, clothing, books, and artwork. In addition, items stored in facilities that are not climate controlled may be more susceptible to damage from dust, insects, and other pests.

When planning to store household goods, make a list of items that may need to be accessed more easily. Those should be placed so they can be reached without moving other items. Pack like items together. Make sure to pack fragile items in appropriate boxes or containers with bubble wrap or other suitable packing materials. Always label boxes for content. Old sheets and blankets are useful for covering and protecting furniture. If a furniture piece must be disassembled, keep the pieces together. Zip lock bags are handy for keeping any necessary hardware together. Place the bags in a drawer or tape to the underside of the furniture piece.

A.C. White can provide access to storage through its more than 1,000 partners worldwide. They can arrange for the pickup and delivery of the items. Climate controlled storage can offer peace of mind during a move and transition period.

6 Things You Can Store in Mini Storage, and Some Things You Shouldn’t


Warning: include(/home/acwhite/public_html/wp-content/themes/AC White/inc/meta.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/acwhite/public_html/wp-content/themes/AC White/archive.php on line 38

The late comedian George Carlin did a skit called “Stuff.” He facetiously said the meaning of life is “stuff.” It’s funny because we do accumulate more stuff than we have space. We amass so much stuff, he joked, that we have to get a bigger house to keep our “stuff” and sometimes put some of it in storage. Yes, he says, there’s an entire industry dedicated to keeping an eye on your “stuff.”

Seriously, though, have you ever stopped and thought about all those purchases that “seemed like a good at the time?” Later you’re deciding whether to keep the coffee table or get rid of that monstrous treadmill. If you, like many, have too much “stuff,” need to downsize living space or are in the military serving overseas and need help with your stuff, A.C. White can accommodate all of your mini storage needs. Let A.C. White take the hassle out of dealing with all that “stuff.”

Six Good Storage Items

This stuff would be better served in mini storage than under your futon.

  1. Iron Man: No, not Robert Downey Jr. In Marvel’s Iron Man 3, Tony Stark has 42 variations of his powered exoskeleton. For the avid collector, there are far too many action figures to fit into a mid-town apartment. Climate controlled mini self-storage is a perfect, safe solution for that treasure trove.
  2. Cinderella: For the cosplay enthusiast, Renaissance Faires, Masquerade Balls and Halloween parties require an abundance of garments and accessories. Fortunately, they’re seasonal items that can be kept neatly tucked away until needed.
  3. Celluloid: One of the top collected items are movies. Over the years, the film industry has downsized from VHS tapes to DVD to basically online streaming. It’s time to take those boxes full of movies to storage.
  4. Family Nostalgia: Perhaps your children are grown and you saved all those heart-warming Valentine’s Day cards and Science Fair Projects. These precious memories are better kept in a climate controlled self-storage than a damp basement.
  5. Vintage Clothing: You probably spent a lot of time searching for these items, but you may not need to wear them often. Store your prized possession in a safe space, that doesn’t take up your space.
  6. Antique Furniture: Maybe you received a lot of pieces from your great aunt. These are valuable to you, but do not fit with your current decor. We can look after them for you.

Six Things NOT To Put In Storage

A.C. White wants to help you displace your things, but please don’t send us any of the following;

  • Cash.
  • Stolen or Illegal Items.
  • Noxious Material.
  • Firearms, Ammunition or Explosives.

Mini storage is a great option for most people. If you want us to take some things off your hands, contact us today.

Pianos, Pool Tables, Oh My — Moving Oddly Shaped Items


Warning: include(/home/acwhite/public_html/wp-content/themes/AC White/inc/meta.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/acwhite/public_html/wp-content/themes/AC White/archive.php on line 38

Moving day is usually a time of positive excitement, mixed in with a little anxiety. It’s wonderful to move to your dream home or get relocated for a job you love. Those who have worked hard deserve to reap the benefits. A nice home with lots of space is a fitting reward.

Yet, anxiety is another common emotion. As anyone who has had to move knows, packing, storing and transporting things is no easy feat, especially without professional guidance. Arriving at the new home with chipped dishes, busted furniture and dented tables can ruin the moment.

For those with odd-shaped items to move, it is almost imperative to seek the counsel of relocation specialists, such as those at A. C. White, in Atlanta. With more 40 years of experience helping families, individuals, organizations and businesses safely maneuver pianos, grandfather clocks and other hard-to-move things from one location to the next, A.C. White remains prepared to continue throughout the 21st Century.

To help readers relocating with oddly-shaped packing items get started on the road to a successful transition, here are some things to consider.

Handling Round Items

The irregular shape of round items leaves lots of space in boxes that require filling to prevent shifting. It is best to include proper packing material in the box for stabilization. Bubble wrap is a wise choice. Also, remember to cushion the bottom, for extra protection.

Examples:

  • basketballs
  • bicycle tires
  • car tires
  • picnic table tops
  • ceiling fans

Handling Large and Long Items

These household goods prove especially difficult to transport. They present problems because of both their unconventional shape and above-average size.

Professional movers will pay particular attention to the middle section. The area is susceptible to extra pressure because the weight forces are strongest there. During the move, if cracks develop, it is usually in this location. Provide extra support under the middle region of grandfather clocks, tables and widescreen televisions. Be sure to cover with bubble wrap to avoid dents and bumps.

Examples:

  • pianos
  • dining room table tops
  • sofas
  • pool tables

Get Help

Moving can be stressful. It is best to let the experts handle the logistics of moving goods from one place to the next, especially when it involves a pool table.

A.C. White is dedicated to ensuring that its clients enjoy a smooth relocation process. As a full-service company, we are there from the beginning to the final stages of unpacking.
