TopCity Storage Can Help When Moving

Moving


Time Crunch- Packing and unpacking can take up plenty of time. Sometimes, we don't have the luxury of getting much notice before we have to move out of our current home. One way to save some time is to rent a unit and start storing items in it as soon as you have access, prior to moving day. Packing up any items you don't need on a daily basis or that you can live without prior to moving will give you a leg up. If you rent from a place like TopCity Storage, Topeka, KS you will have a digital key sharing app. With this app you can share your digital key with friends and family members who are helping you move and while one person is moving truck loads of items for you others can be packing more stuff up, this is a big timesaver. Smooth Transition - In some cases you have a lag between places. Storing in a safe storage will help you have some time to go through all the belongings, taking only what you need to your new home. Stress and Pressure- Leaving your items in a safe, secure place without any worries will help with the pressure of getting it all done in one day. Good for selling your home-If you are selling your home, declutteering and staging is one of the most important steps to making it more appealing to buyers. Clear out your closets, garage, cabinets, and anything that you don’t need with you on a regular basis, pack it up, and put it in storage while your home is on the market. Not only will your house look bigger and more appealing, but you’ll also get a head start on packing and moving. ...

Unmanned Self Storage Misconceptions

Moving


Unmanned self-storage properties like Topcity storage are new in the industry and they have a few misconceptions that we would like to clear up. Here are the top five misconceptions on unmanned self storages: 1. Customers Need Help Figuring Out Unit Size- We have made a simple solution in helping our customers with this problem. On our website at Topcity we have a interactive storage unit calculator tool that our customers can use that makes picking a unit simple. Also, after customers have picked the right storage size they can use our facility map to pick a storage location. If the customer still needs help no problem, TopCity is always here for you. Give us a call, or even text with any questions. 2. Unmanned Properties Must Be Gated-This is a misconseption that we hope to change. Many unmanned properties are high-functioning and very secure, even without gates and fences. Security goes beyond fences and gating. If the facility is in a well-monitored, high-traffic area where crime is less likely to take place, then the facility may not need to be gated. With new technology, like SecurGuard Electronic Locks, as utilized by TopCityStorage security fencing is not necessary. Electronic locks, keypads, lighting, and surveillance is just as secure as a gated self storage. 3. Unmanned Properties Have More Security Issues- Security is a concern at most self storage locations. Unmanned properties take extra steps in taking measures to ensure that their customers belongings are safe. These steps include keeping the facility well-lit at night, utilizing SecurGuard Electronic Locks, using security cameras and carefully monitoring the crime activity in the area. 4. Unmanned Properties Have Terrible Customer Service-TopCity thrives on trying to make their customers satisfied. We take many steps to help our customer service. Customers are able to complete the move-in process at their own convenience 24/7 using online tools, which is much easier than calling and setting up an appointment. Plus, the human element is still available ...
