While the holidays are certainly a fun time of year, they do come with a list of chores. Depending on how you see it, decorating for the holidays is probably a mix of both pain and pleasure. It’s fun having everything up and seeing the reactions of friends and family to your festiveness, but taking everything out and putting everything away again for another year can be tiresome. Not only that, but every time you take something out of storage, you run the risk of damaging it and having to replace it. Below are four tips for safely taking holiday decorations out of storage this holiday season.

Drive Up Storage

If you are shopping around for a storage facility for your holiday decorations, you might want to consider a company that offers its clients drive up storage options. This means you can pull your vehicle all the way up to the unit and avoid having to carry boxes all the way to the parking lot. The less distance you have to travel with something, the less chance there is for an accident and breakage.

Get Help

While you might think getting the decorations out is a one person job, it pays to have an extra set of hands, eyes, and ears when moving valuable and delicate Christmas decorations. Ask a friend or family member if they can spare a couple of hours helping you get your things out of storage. This is especially important if you have any big, bulky items, or if you have items stored on high shelves or in an attic, requiring the use of a ladder.

Get a Dolly

Many storage facilities will offer you the use of a dolly if you don’t have your own. Dollies are those wheeled moving devices that use leverage to allow you to move large objects that you wouldn’t typically be able to carry on your own. Dollies come in all sizes, and if you are looking to get one for yourself, they can be purchased at most home and garden stores.

Heavy Items in the Car First

When loading things into your vehicle, always but the big, bulky, dense items near the front, and the fragile ones near the back. When you brake during the ride home, momentum is going to force everything to the front. If you have your big, heavy items at the back, and your smaller fragile items at the front, those big heavy items are going to be crushing the smaller, breakable decorations.

It’s understandable that people want to get their decorations out of storage, into their vehicle, and up in their home as fast as possible, but there are some precautions to take to ensure you do not damage or ruin your treasured holiday decorations. Keep the above removal tips in mind this holiday season and make sure you don’t lose one single decoration.

The holidays are here and many people have already had the experience of opening up storage boxes, only to find broken decorations. If you’ve stored your holiday decorations improperly, chances are, you are going to end up with some broken decorations year after year. Below are tips for safely storing your holiday decorations.

How To Safely Store Your Holiday Decorations

Artificial Tree Storage

If you are like millions of people and have opted for the artificial tree in order to avoid the mess and cleanup of the real tree, then you’ve probably come to understand just how destructive those pointy metal branches can be. Avoid scratching your walls, and anything else you might have stored alongside your artificial tree by picking up an artificial tree storage bag to keep the tree, and everything else, well protected.

Tangle Free Light Storage

It’s a cliche as old as putting up lights for the holidays is, but that doesn’t make it any less true. If you leave your lights in a bundle all winter, even if it’s a fairly orderly bundle when you place it in the garage, or storage space, it’s an inevitability that, come the following year, they are going to be in an awful tangle. Purchase yourself a wind-up light storage unit, which will guarantee you tangle-free lights year after year. Tangled lights can damage the wiring, as well as the lights themselves, costing you money.

Ornament Storage Chest

If you are like a lot of people, you have lots of tree ornaments. If you are even more like a lot of people, you don’t really have a proper storage system for these ornaments. They all just go in the ornament box. Invest in an ornament storage chest and make sure that you are safely storing those delicate, sentimental ornaments that you would like to keep in your family for ever.

Keep Your Boxes

If you like your nativity scenes, or your holiday villages, or any other cute holiday scenes, then keep the boxes they came in. They are perfectly designed to fit in the boxes, and in addition to making sure that everything stays manageable and in the same place, you can ensure that none of the intricate little parts, figurines, etc., get broken during the off-season.

Don’t take a chance with your holiday gear and decorations. You want these things to last for a long time, and maybe even get passed on to your children. Keep them safe and sound and be sure that you have them for this holiday season, next holiday season, and the rest of the holiday seasons to come.
