Organize and Declutter with Portable Storage

There are also many other items in your possession that you would not like to dispose as yet. Yet the items may not have much room in your house and you may not know what exactly to do with them.

It is very easy to accumulate a lot of stuff with time. This is especially so during any holiday or festive seasons. There are many decorations and other items that are accumulated with time.  Some of these may be items that you use in particular seasons or in special days but guess what? They are all clutter. In this post we’ll outline how you can organize and declutter with portable storage.

There are also many other items in your possession that you would not like to dispose as yet. Yet the items may not have much room in your house and you may not know what exactly to do with them. Well they could have a safe haven in a mobile storage container. At GoBox Portable Storage we provide portable containers to our clients to use as storage of their valued possessions in order to create room for your home. In that way, your home remains more organized and comfortable to live in without the clutter!

Steps to declutter your home with portable storage 

First of all you need space on your property. It could be at your backyard or even your front yard. A portable storage will always be the answer. Once it is placed on your property you can store anything you like there. At GoBox Portable Storage we provide mobile storage which is delivered to your door step.  This mobile storage unit can be kept right on your property. 

Going through your items can reveal how much you need to take to the mobile storage but it will also help you know what to retain. You definitely have those things that you use once in a long while. Things like lawnmowers and snow blowers are examples of tools that are used once in a while so they can be kept away safely in a portable storage. Inherited stuff, souvenirs and things like a wedding dress could also be stored away in such a container. Old books that you are done with but would need them for your future library also fall in this category of things that need to clear the way for a more organized home. These are things you might not really need but you are not ready to dispose of yet.

The next step is to organize your things.  As you sort out the items in your house, know what to keep, store, donate, and dispose of. Once you know that, classify the items into those groups. An inventory list will help you at this point. The list will surely help you to reorganize yourself by knowing what needs to go where.

How to organize the portable storage unit

The unit should be organized according to your needs. At this point an inventory list helps a lot. List the items down and classify what you want to store.  Plan the unit well and create passages for ease of access. Once you have the classes of items that you need to store, make sure you name them clearly. For example you could keep all Christmas decorations together and label them. Store them at a particular area. Easter decorations could go to the same area but in a different shelf. With that kind of classification, retrieving them would be very easy. Imagine keeping all decorations clamped up together! It would be a mess trying to sort them out. So sort them out before storing them.

When storing your items in the container, make sure to store what you least need at the very far end of the container. You could use an old shelf should you have one. This helps in creating straight aisles and also it is an excellent way of storing smaller items. The items you think you will need more often, should be among the last ones to be arranged for storage in the container.

Organize and Declutter Furniture with Portable Storage

Furniture that you do not need like your patio furniture should be kept in one area. Should you have different kinds of furniture keep them in the same area but organize them well according to the seasons they are needed. There are those needed during summer, camping and things like that. Be creative as you try and see how best you can organize your items for easier accessibility when you need them. Should you organize your items well in the mobile container, then it means you will also have enough space to store everything you need stored. With everything carefully stacked away in the container, it means having a more organized home.

We had a great experience with Go Box portable storage. With 3 weeks between sale of our house and closing of our newly purchased home we needed a temporary solution for storage. Go Box staff are professional to work with and subsequently our move was smooth and painless. We highly recommend using Go Box!

I have had a portable unit at my home for quite a while now - years. Rob is great to deal with. Payment is affordable and easy. The unit has weathered everything in all seasons as it is out in the open. Not a single leak. The locking mechanisms are in excellent shape as well. Highly recommend these folks.

It’s always a pleasure to see Rob, and support a local business. As much as I like Rob, and try to support locally, if the quality of product/service isn’t to the highest degree, and my experience as a client isn’t smooth, seamless, and stress free, I would feel no obligation to continue my support.FORTUNATELY, none of these things are a concern when dealing with GoBox Portable Storage Inc.From my initial call, to the wave goodbye when my container was picked up, everything was FLAWLESS.Effective communication, simple terms, competitive pricing, attention to detail, the use of technology,… all of these things contributed to the best experience I could have asked for.My specific application was a narrow driveway between two houses, and a tight backyard. Rob’s precision, and care in navigating obstacles to initially land, then months later pick up my container was masterful.No damage, no close calls, no stress.I will certainly use GoBox Portable Storage Inc. again.Thanks for everything, Rob.

GoBox Portable Storage Inc. is a top notch organization. Efficiency and service is their major strength. We rented two large storage containers when we built our house - they were delivered on time and placed exactly where we wanted them. We just returned them, and they were removed quickly and neatly. Would highly recommend this company in a heartbeat. Thank you, Rob! Five star all the way! Steve C.

We rented a storage container from Rob while building a house. With appliances being in such high demand we wanted to get them ahead of time but had no place to keep them. The storage box was perfect for all the house appliances and fixtures and was handy to have on site. Very affordable and was a life saver during the build.

Quick and courteous service. We needed some extra storage fast and they delivered clean, secure, and well-functioning containers. The mini lift they used for placement allowed us to get creative and fit 2 containers where others would have only been able to place one.

So happy with the delivery of the container today! I was totally prepared to "make do" with locating it at a space that I thought was most accessible for him but he was able to place the container in a preferred spot thanks to the system he uses to move the container off the truck. I had never seen anything like this - using remote control to operate the machine that moves the container - no worrying about the truck being able to fit into a tight space! I totally recommend this service if you are looking for affordable, clean, convenient extra storage on site.

I recently had a very positive experience with GoBox Portable Storage Inc. Gananoque Ontario! It was a pleasure dealing with Rob! From the first inquiry to the delivery date was very quick and efficient service! Rob also delivered my POD in a timely manner! In fact the scheduled delivery was arranged for between 10 and 11 a.m. and to my surprise Rob was there at my property at 5 minutes to 10! The POD was clean and secure for my Household Items and Furniture! The Rates at GoBox are quite reasonable! Rob is very professional and pleasant to deal with! He knows his product well and is extremely helpful! It was a pleasure dealing with Rob and GO Box Portables Inc. Thank you Rob! EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE!

Our GoBox was delivered within a week of the request. The price is comparable to a storage unit of similar size, but you have the convenience of having is where you want it. We rented it when we did a major renovation and it was perfect. The owner was curtains and friendly as well. Highly recommend!

We rented a go box while doing a home renovation, it was great putting our appliances and furniture right outside our front door. We could bring pieces in as the reno moved along. Price is very comparable to a storage facility but didn’t have to hire truck or movers to get from storage facility. It only took Rob 20 minutes to unload storage container right onto my front yard ( my choice) , ten feet from my front door. Very neat , manoeuvrable unit that loads/unloads the container, makes so Rob can put it almost anywhere. Highly recommend!

This was one of the best parts of our recent renovation. Rob was amazing to work with and soaccommodating . Having the storage container land in on our driveway and the ability to move the contents of our home at our leisure was priceless. I can’t say enough good things about this experience. I will recommend this option for all my clients and friends going forward.

Great experience and extremely convenient! We used a sea can for our new build to store some of our stuff while we stayed in an air B & B. Pick up and drop off was great and very straightforward. In my opinion, the price was great too!

We stored 2 units on our property to store all of our belongings while our house was being built. The cans were clean, sealed tight, and came in excellent condition. Rob was great at accommodating our timelines, delivery and pick up was seamless, and he was very easy to communicate with. We would definitely recommend GoBox to anyone in need of easy storage solutions!

We recently moved from a large house to a much smaller house and needed a storage solution to allow us to sort things out without storing offsite. GoBox fit the bill perfectly. They gently lowered the container onto wooden blocks on the driveway with their amazing container mover. It didn't leave a single mark on the driveway. A very cost effective storage solution. I highly recommend them.
