Storing Valuables

Whether it’s that beloved, vintage guitar your dad left you or a treasured piece of jewelry from your great grandmother, we all have items that mean a lot to us. Even if they don’t boast a huge monetary value, our emotional attachment far outweighs any dollar amount.

Obviously, you want to treat the items you care about with the utmost care and attention — especially when it comes to storing them. And, even if you packaged them in a case of pillows and kept them locked in Fort Knox, you’d probably still be a little nervous about their safekeeping. But, have no fear! I’ve got a few tips for storing your valuables that should help to ease your anxious mind.

1. Determine your best storage location.

First things first, you need to determine where you plan on keeping your valuable items. Will you store them in your own garage or basement? Are they valuable enough that the should be kept in a safe? Do you plan to move them to your storage unit?

Take some time to evaluate your options and figure out which one makes you the most comfortable. You’ll also want to think about their value and how often you plan to access them when making storage decisions. This will help to ensure you’re choosing a location and method that best fits your needs and expectations!

2. Package with care.

Depending on how fragile your items are, you’ll want to take extra care when packaging them for storage. Stock up on bubble wrap, packing peanuts, and sturdy crates and boxes in order to ensure your items will be safe from damage.

If you will be keeping your items in a garage or storage unit, you also want to make an effort to keep them off the floor. Purchase some pallets or shelves so that they don’t end up sitting in a puddle of water if disaster strikes.

3. Check on them frequently.

Obviously, these items are important to you. So, you’ll want to check in frequently to ensure they’re ok and no mishaps have occurred. Even if the items are simply stored in your own basement, checking every now and then to confirm everything is ok will give you some peace of mind.

4. Insure them if necessary.

You’ll likely want to consider insuring your valuable items. Many storage unit renters make the mistake of assuming that the unit’s property insurance will cover their belongings. But, that insurance typically only covers replacing the actual structure if something happens — not the contents inside. Consider rolling your valuable items into your homeowner’s insurance policy, or getting an entirely separate storage insurance plan to make sure your valuables are covered.

Making the appropriate storage decisions for your valuable items can be stressful and lead to some anxiety. But, there’s no need to panic! Keep these tips in mind to find the best storage solutions for your prized possessions.
