Be Careful In This Heat!

If you must be at your storage unit during extreme summer temperatures be sure to drink plenty of water, take lots of breaks in the shade & keep an eye out for any signs of heat exhaustion. Here's what to watch for:

Faintness or dizziness
Nausea or vomiting
Heavy sweating often with cold, clammy skin
Weak, rapid pulse
Pale or flushed face
Muscle cramps
Headache
Weakness or fatigue

If you, or anyone else, experiences heat exhaustion immediately get out of the heat and off your feet. You're always welcome in the office! If we aren't open or you can't go somewhere with a/c, find a shady spot. Drink plenty of fluid (avoid caffeine and alcohol) and remove tight or unnecessary clothing. If there is no improvement don't wait to seek medical help!

Avoid Cord Spaghetti

During your packing before you unplug electric cords for things like computers and electronic setups, be sure to document what goes where. Snap some pictures or draw out a quick diagram. You can also mark each one by making a little flag using packing tape and writing where it goes with a sharpie. It's worth it to take the couple extra minutes during packing than to spend hours reconstructing when you arrive for set up.

BEWARE OF THIEVES POSING AS MOVERS!

This story aired last night about one homeowners' belongings that are now GONE. It's just over one minute long so please take the time to watch. We can all learn from this. Get recommendations from friends, check references, read reviews online, look at BBB ratings, as well as directly supervise the loading, transport and unloading so something like this doesn't happen to you or someone you care about.
