Accessing Your Halloween Decorations in Self-Storage

Admin | October 1, 2020 @ 12:00 AM

Halloween is almost here, which means it's time to break out the spooky decorations! If you're keeping your decorations in self-storage, you'll have to make a trip to the facility and grab the items you need from there. Below are our self-storage tips and the steps for you to follow to make sure you're ready for this Halloween. Follow along and grab all the decorations you need while making space in your house for them at the same time. 

Grab all Your Halloween Decorations Out

The first step is to head to your self-storage unit and get all the decorations out. Carefully grab all the labeled boxes and containers that have your Halloween decorations in them. If you aren't sure, you'll have to search through your boxes until you find what you need. While pulling out your Halloween decorations, you should consider adding some additional seasonal items into storage to clear space in your home. Be careful to package anything delicate appropriately to protect it from weather extremes. 

Take Inventory

With all your decorations out, it's time to unbox everything and lay it out so you can see what's there. Make sure you have all the items you need to decorate your home and make note of anything that you don't have. Go through all your decorations now, and bring your list with you back to your storage unit to grab anything that you missed. 

Test it Out

If you have any electronic devices that rely on blowers or lights, be sure to try them now so you can identify any problems with your decorations. Try and turn on each of the different devices to verify that it works. Sometimes cold storage for Halloween decorations can leave you with some failed light bulbs, or in need of new batteries. List any replacement items you need so you can swap in new items. 

Replace Batteries and Light Bulbs

Out of all the items in your Halloween storage boxes, something is bound to be broken or dead when you pull it out. That's why you should list off the failed bulbs as well as any batteries you need to replace. Get these items and swap them into your Halloween decorations in advance of the holiday so you're prepared. By taking just a few minutes to swap out these items you can verify that everything is working properly once you decorate your home.

Store Your Spring and Summer Items

Finally, before you finish setting up all your Halloween decorations, pack away any summer and spring items you have laying around your home. Tuck them into protective boxes and bring them to your self-storage space. This is the last step in the process, and it will help give you the space you need for all your holiday storage needs.
