For valuable antiques, keepsakes, and other important and valuable items that you don't have a day-to-day use for, renting out a unit at a storage facility for longer term storage allows you to free up a significant amount of space without having to make any hard decisions about your belongings. However, before you move all of your items into a storage unit, you should make sure to take a few steps to ensure that all of your items are adequately packed, organized, and prepared to sit in storage to prevent them from becoming damaged or lost while in storage.
Moving is frequently a stressful process, but it can be more stressful when you are making the transition from your current home to an assisted living facility. To help the process go smoothly there are several considerations you need to address during the planning stages.
