Pack, Store, and You’re On Your Way

storage tips

Oh no, summer is already more than halfway over. It’s time to get away and head off on a vacation for the last time this summer. Are you going backpacking for a month across Europe or on a family vacation to Disney World for a week? Are you packing for just yourself or for the whole family? Packing for a vacation can get extremely complicated especially if you plan on packing for the whole family. We at XYZ Storage want to help you feel confident in leaving your home and heading for the airport whether it is for a few days or a few months.

Packing List

It is a good idea to have a list of all the items that you need to pack. You could go through what you’re going to be doing on your trip and pack accordingly. This could be anything from having one pair of shorts to having five pairs of shorts. When you have a master packing list this allows you to figure out if you need to head out to the store and purchase a few more things for your trip. You don’t want to arrive at the airport and realize you forgot a bunch of things.

Roll, Not Fold

A smart tip is to roll your clothes as opposed to folding them in your luggage or other baggage. Rolling your clothes saves space and who doesn’t want to save space. This way it will help you maximize the space in your luggage and help you avoid checking in another bag at the airport.


Want to feel confident with leaving your belongings in storage? Think about insurance. You don’t want to come back from a relaxing vacation to find out you don’t have insurance to cover any damage to your belongings. It might also be a good idea to ask one of your friends or family members to check your belongings especially if you are going to be away long-term.


A thought on your mind if your renting an apartment and planning a three-month trip is what do you with all your belongings. If you’re lucky enough your friends or parents may have space in their home to store all your belongings for those few months. Storage is another option when you lack space and don’t want to pay rent for the months you are not living in your usual space. Remember, XYZ Storage has customizable and affordable storage solutions for you to choose from. It’s as simple as storing your belongings with us and when you come back you can take it out.
