A Must Read Before You Take The Leap

Boombox Blog Get Rid of Your Clutter! Self-Storage

Check out our list of 9 helpful tips for moving in with that special someone.

#1 Talk Specifics Before The Move

Meth Lab Self-Storage

There’s a big difference between how two people define “home.” Make sure to have a good conversation about what that means to each person. For example, do you watch TV at dinner, go to sleep later, or leave clothes on the floor. All the little pet peeves that can start a fight later should be discussed before the actual move in date. It’ll make both your lives a lot more enjoyable :)

#2 Plan Real Time Together

Don’t confuse proximity with spending quality time with your significant other. It’s a good idea to set aside some time every couple of weeks and go on a nice date or fun adventure.

Ya gotta keep the spark alive if you know what I mean.

#3 Talk About Next Steps

This might be the most serious tip on the list.

Going in to the situation with clear expectations can save one another a lot of headache and heartache. If a proposal is the next step in the relationship make sure that you are aware of your partners expectations. Nothing worse than going 4 years with no proposal when your partner thought it would only take 8 months. Communication is key!

#4 Take Inventory of Your Furniture

More than likely you’ll have too much stuff to combine both people’s furniture and other items into one coherent and functional space. After you’ve taken inventory, decide which items to keep and put the other items in storage.

Quick tip that football helmet lamp doesn’t tie the room together. If you can’t part ways with it call Boombox a San Francisco storage company and they’ll make sure its stored safely until you need it for your future man cave ;).

#5 Plan Not Together Time

No matter how much you love your partner spending time apart is healthy. Make sure to plan some time with separate friend groups so you don’t have to spend every waking hour with your significant other.

#6 Divide Up Chores

This is a pain but can be a source of lot of bickering if not properly addressed.

It’s a good idea to make a chore list (I know that sounds lame) or at least discuss who takes care of what. No one wants 7 day old dirty dishes in the sink with no one willing to do it.

#7 Reorganize Closets and Figure Out Where You Would Both Like to Keep Things

What areas does Boombox serve?

Boombox proudly serves the San Francisco Bay area. For a complete map of our service area, check out our Locations Page. If you are looking for storage San Francisco, we are here to help. We pride ourselves on being the most afforable and convenient Bay area storage option around. Our service area extends from San Francisco down to San Jose and as far east as Oakland and Berkeley.

How does Boombox make sure all my items are returned to me?

During your initial pickup we apply barcodes to each item, and photograph everything so there is a record of what’s in storage and what condition it was received in. Within two days of your initial pickup your online inventory will be accessible. We will notify you when the pictures of your storage items have been uploaded. We take a picture of the outside of the box and upload the picture along with the description of each item or label you placed on the box. Once your online storage catalog has been uploaded please make sure to verify all the pictures of your items are there. Your items will always be organized and accessible. You'll never have to hassle with a San Francisco storage unit again.

How is Boombox different from self-storage?

San Francisco self storage can be expensive and aggravating. At traditional bay area self storage units, security is not guaranteed, and you have to do all the work. It’s up to you to pack and organize your belongings, and you have to remember what’s in your storage unit. That makes it really easy to lose track of what you have in your storage unit. Instead of choosing a grungy SF storage unit, choose Boombox's full service storage solution. In our unbiased opinion ; ) it's the best Bay Area storage option out there.

How does the storage pick up work?

Self storage with a pick up?! That's what we call full service storage. We meet you at your location with our killer purple storage van. Our team then loads the van and photographs and barcodes each storage item or box that will be stored. Within 48 hours, you’ll be able to log into your storage account and see your complete storage inventory! Our pick ups are available within our Bay Area Storage service area. We love helping San Francisco with their storage needs. Say goodbye to San Francisco self-storage for good!
