Natural disasters like Hurricane Sandy strike quickly and fiercely. If you’re left picking up the pieces after a disaster, a storage center can help. Here are a few ways in which self-storage can assist you on the path to normalcy.
Help with Relocation
Whether you need to evacuate, move out during repairs, or completely relocate, a storage facility is a wonderful ally. It’s much easier to plan your move when you put your items into storage. Once you find a new place to live, all of your belongings will be waiting for you in a secure location.
Extra Space During Renovation
Living in a damaged home can be extremely dangerous. In the days after a fire, flood, or other disaster, it’s important that you hire a contractor to repair the damage. If you put all of your belongings into a storage center, you can get them all out of the way and allow your home receive the attention it needs. If contractors have plenty of room to work, they can often complete the renovations in a shorter amount of time.
Help Organizing Belongings
There’s a good chance that some of your belongings will suffer damage during a disaster. Many of your items may be completely irreparable. A storage facility can make it much easier to separate the salvageable and unsalvageable items. When you have somewhere to put your intact belongings, you’ll have a better idea of what you need to replace.
