All Storage Online | December 22, 2020 @ 12:00 AM

Although COVID-19 has changed just about everything we do and how we do it, one thing it hasn’t changed is the need for people to travel. No matter what happens in the world, people are going to need to travel, and our storage units in Keller, TX, are here for you to store your valuables while you’re away. Below are a few tips and tricks to help stay safe as you travel this season.

Prepare in Advance 

Rather than just getting up and hitting the road this year, it will help to prepare in advance for your travels. Whether you’re traveling for a week or a month, be sure to make a game plan. Pack plenty of hand sanitizer, a few extra masks, and any other supplies you will need to keep your hands and face as clean as possible.

If you’re going to be gone for a longer amount of time, be sure to store your valuables at a self-storage unit. All Storage has self-storage in Keller, TX, that can give you peace of mind while you’re away, knowing your items are safe. Our storage units in Keller, TX, come in various sizes and are great for storing anything you need to be kept safe during your travels.

Plan for Extra Time

When preparing to travel, leave yourself plenty of time. Start your drive earlier than you normally would in case there is inclement weather. Arrive at the airport several hours in advance to ensure you won’t miss your flight. It’s not convenient, but it’s much better to give yourself extra time than to miss your plans entirely.

If you utilize a storage unit, pack it up in advance. Make sure to put anything valuable that you are leaving behind inside your storage. Make a checklist of things you want to be stored, and finish packing your items with plenty of time to spare before leaving. If you’re using one of our self-storage units in Keller, TX, you may have room to spare after packing your valuables. Consider storing holiday decorations, summer clothes, or other items you won’t be using in the near future to free up more space in your home.

Make A List, Check it Twice 

A year ago, most of us didn’t travel with a face mask or hand sanitizer at all times, but now it’s become second nature. Make a list of items you’ll need to stay sanitized and healthy, as well as a list of things to do before and after travel. If you have a pet, prepare for their care in advance, and have a plan in case you are delayed coming home. 

If you’re putting items in storage, do the same thing. Make a list of things you need to be packed away, and then label the boxes and bags you store things in. It may help to write or type out your list so you can use it in the future. Give yourself a few days to prepare, and write down any ideas, big or small, that will help your trip be a bit less stressful and safer.
