How to Make Moving with Young Children Easier

Moving is always stressful, but when you have young children, the process can be even more overwhelming—for all of you. Fortunately, you can take some of the hassle out of moving with kids with a little planning. At Chelsea Mini Storage, our affiliated company Moves LLC provides moving services that can work hand-in-hand with our storage services to make moving more convenient than ever. Take advantage of our moving services to make your transition easier, and use these tips to tackle some of the issues that arise when you move with young children.

Use Naptimes for De-cluttering

Before moving day, you will want to de-clutter your home, but that is easier said than done when your kids are around. Young children can become very emotionally attached to items you want to get rid of, even if they haven’t reached for them in months. If you do your de-cluttering while your kids are sleeping, especially if you are clearing out some of their older items, then you can avoid the meltdowns that may otherwise occur.

Involve Your Kids in the Process

Kids may not be up to most of the tasks involved in moving, but there are things that they can do to help that can make things easier for you both. One simple thing you can do is to give your kids a box and ask them to put some of their belongings in it. Even if the box is not ready to tape up when they’re done, it will make them feel more involved and make the idea of moving less scary.

Accept Help

Rely on family and friends to keep your kids busy for a few hours on moving day, so you can focus on the details of the move. Giving your kids some time out from what is going on at home will ease some of the stress they are feeling and will give you a few less things to juggle.

Whether you need boxes, movers, or a storage unit to keep some of your belongings, Chelsea Mini Storage is here to make your move easier. Learn more about all of the services we provide at our moving and storage company in Manhattan by calling (212) 564-7735.

Simple Strategies for Unpacking Your Boxes

One of the most overwhelming parts of moving is getting your stuff out of your boxes and into your home. Whether you’re bringing items into your home that have been in storage units during your move or you are simply moving items directly from one home to the next, the tips in the video will help.

When your moving services provider has left and you’re facing all of your boxes, focus on the functional spaces. Set up your kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom first, so you can do your basic day-to-day activities. Don’t obsess over putting things in the perfect places. You can tweak later after everything is unpacked.

Chelsea Mini Storage makes every move easier, with self-storage and moving services that will take the hassle out of relocating. Find out more about moving and storage in Manhattan by calling (212) 564-7735.

Newly Married? A Guide to Blending Your Belongings

If you’ve recently married and didn’t cohabitate before the wedding, one of the biggest challenges of being a newlywed may be blending your belongings. When two people are bringing all of their things together, from dishes to sofas, something has to give. Even if your styles are similar, having two of everything takes up a lot of space. Fortunately, you can tackle this first marriage hurdle with ease by using a few smart strategies and a storage unit. Try these tips to blend your belongings after the wedding.

Deal with Doubles

Start by taking inventory of the things you have doubles of and work from there to decide what should go. For instance, you don’t need two full dish sets or two living room couches. You may find it easy to decide which ones to keep and which ones to get rid of based on the condition of the items, but if both sets of belongings are in top shape and could come in handy in the future, move one set into a self-storage unit, so you can get it back out when you’re ready to use it. If possible, decide what is going into the home and what is going to storage before you move, so you don’t have to move things twice.

Look for Common Ground

Even if you and your betrothed have wildly different styles, you can still find common ground on which to build your new home. It could just be a color or a piece of artwork you both agree on, but that is enough to create a look you can both embrace in your new home. Your styles don’t have to match perfectly. The trick is to blend in ways that are interesting rather than jarring.

Use Vetoes

There is a good chance that each of you has a particularly strong dislike for a few of each other’s items. Decide on a number of vetoes you can each use to overrule items you simply want to leave behind. Two vetoes each is a good way to compromise.

Chelsea Mini Storage can help you build a home together without giving up your prized possessions with our storage units in Manhattan. To reserve a storage unit or find out more about our facility, please call (212) 564-7735.

Using Our Storage Calculator

One of the first steps in renting storage units is selecting the right size. You don’t want to choose a unit that is too big, as you’ll end up paying for space you don’t need, but choosing one that is too small will make it difficult to pack and could cause your items to be damaged. Fortunately, the storage calculator at Chelsea Mini Storage takes all of the guesswork out of picking a storage space.

To get the right storage space, go to our website and select the exact items you have. Our comprehensive list includes a wide range of items that people store in our units. When your list is complete, decide if you want your items to be packed tightly or loosely, and then click calculate. We’ll recommend the perfect storage unit for you.

With our range of storage unit sizes, you’ll find the exact right space for your needs at Chelsea Mini Storage. Call us today at (212) 564-7735 to find out more about renting a self-storage space in Manhattan.
