Items To Consider Storing When Moving?



Most clothing items will do fine with short term regular storage. But for particularly valuable or expensive clothing items, like a wedding dress or tuxedo, leaving these items exposed to moisture and heat can result in fabric damage and encourage mold growth. Unless you plan to be wearing them around the time of the move, you might consider throwing these items in with the load headed for your climate controlled storage unit with a Bellevue moving companies.

  1. Collectables

Collecting various items like comics, stamps, and coins can be a fun pastime. Many people have put years of time into their collections, so keeping them safe and well-protected is of utmost importance. In regular storage spaces, these items are exposed to varying temperatures and moisture levels, which can result in paper yellowing or corrosion of valuables. Climate controlled storage spaces protect against fluctuating temperatures and humidity levels to ensure your valuable items are well protected.

  1. Paper

When exposed to heat and moisture, paper tends to oxidize and take on a yellowish hue. This can affect all kinds of paper products, like photos, financial documents or records, art pieces and more. Once the damage is done, it cannot be reversed, so storage units that can regulate temperature and humidity are great resources for those looking to store paper products during their move.

  1. Electronics

From the most recent technologies like televisions and stereos, to older types of electronics like record players and cassettes, these items can cease to function after exposure to intense moisture or temperatures. Not only can these items hold sentimental value, but they can also be incredibly expensive to replace. Putting these items in climate controlled storage can save you the worry and expense of putting these items in unregulated storage spaces.
