Why Taking Pictures is the Key to Smart Storage

It may seem weird to spend all day moving items into your storage unit and then stand around taking pictures. However, there are many important reasons that taking pictures of your stored stuff is a smart move. Read on in today’s blog from Affordable Family Storage in Omaha to learn about situations when taking photos is the key to smart storage.

Staying Organized

Whether you are moving your whole home across the country or you are simply making space in the garage, staying organized is an important part of the process. Once you have moved your boxes and furniture into the storage unit, taking a quick snapshot is a great way to ensure that you know which boxes are where. As time passes, your memory of the stored items may fade, but your handy picture never will.

Online Sales

If you are storing valuable items that you no longer need, at some point you might consider selling them online. Taking a few quick pictures as you unload each item will make it easy to post items for sale online, even months after they go into storage.

Insurance Documentation

From vehicles to jewelry to electronics, valuable items should always be documented for purposes of insurance. Whether your items are stored in your garage or in a storage unit, any damage that might occur could be covered by your insurance policies. Making an insurance claim will be more simple and more successful with photo documentation.
