TEMPORARY HOUSEHOLD STORAGE AT BIG ITEM

There are several reasons why you may need to temporarily store the contents of your home. A long-distance move or an expedited house sale means putting your belongings away until you’re ready for them. Also, if you’re doing extensive remodeling or repair work to your home, storing your belongings can protect them from damage.

But regular storage units or pods aren’t good options for storing all of your possessions. You’ll need multiple units, which drives up the cost. It’s also difficult to keep them organized and have ready access to items you may need along the way.

A large storage unit from Big Item Storage provides the perfect solution. You can store your entire household of furniture and accessories while still having access when you need it. You or your movers can drive the moving van right up to the entrance of the unit to load. No need for excessive back and forth! You won’t even have to breakdown your furniture in one of Big Item’s units. There’s plenty of room for even your biggest pieces.

Whether you’re storing your boat, RV, or other large items, Big Item Storage can accommodate your needs. Both our Rockport and Corpus Christi locations are clean and secure.

MAKING RV LIFE EASIER

If you own an RV, you know how wonderful RV life can be. Traveling across the country in your RV is a convenient and fun way to travel. But because your living space is self-contained, there are some drawbacks. Here are some suggestions to help make life in your RV a little easier and less cluttered.

Many RVs, especially older ones, are short on light. Obviously, it won’t bother you when you’re driving. However, it can be frustrating when you just want to read a book. Many stores and online sites sell battery operated lights that can be used to help brighten things up. They can be mounted underneath cabinets or simply placed on countertops to provide extra light.

Plastic bins are helpful for containing clutter and keeping items from rolling around while you drive. But you won’t want to dig through a large bin every time you need something. There are many sizes and shapes of plastic containers, so think outside the box! Use skinny food storage containers as trash cans in tight spaces. Square or rectangular containers will also fit into cabinets and corners more easily, saving space. There are even small plastic caddies with suction cups on them can be attached to the windows. Use these to hold things like crayons for the kids or pens and small notebooks.

TIPS FOR YOUR FIRST RV SITE HOOKUP

If you’re a new RV owner or haven’t used it at a campground yet, it might feel overwhelming to think about getting set up at a site. Having a checklist to follow can help make the experience easier. It will also make sure that you do everything necessary to connect your RV properly.

Before pulling into your site, scan the area. Locate the hookups for your sewage, water, and electrical. Check for any debris or obstacles on the ground. If your site is in a wooded-location, watch for low-hanging branches or intruding bushes. You’ll save yourself a lot of time and potential damage to the RV by doing so. Stay close the hookups when you pull your RV in to the site. Take steps to level it if needed and then secure the wheels. Next, you’ll want to get electricity connected. Make sure to switch the appliances onto the electric current. Put on some gloves and connect the sewer hose next. Once you’re hooked up, you’re ready to enjoy your site, and the next trip will be even easier.

If you haven’t watched someone else perform these steps, it’s a good idea to check out a video online before your trip. You can also ask for assistance from the campground manager, if available, or a more experienced RV-er. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, no matter how basic. RV-ers are generally a friendly bunch, and it’s better to risk looking dumb than risk damage to your RV.
