This year, large numbers were moving away from the city, especially at the start of the pandemic. We looked at some of the reasons people were moving. Why City Residents Left Town During the Pandemic Cost of Living. New York, Chicago, and San Francisco saw the most people move away in the beginning of the pandemic. Coincidentally, they are also some of the most expensive cities to live in. Proximity to Family and Friends. When state governments started imposing restrictions and lockdowns, many people were nervous about when they would be able to see their families again and their safety. Some decided to temporarily move in with family or friends for support. Safety Precautions. Crowded cities can be a difficult environment for social distancing.

Stortropolis Self Storage is here to help make that task a little easier to tackle. We have four storage facilities around Kansas City MO, so no matter where you are in the city, there is a Stortropolis location convenient for you. Start organizing your space today by renting storage online. And check out tips below on how to begin packing. Wrap Up Your Ornaments Well The ornaments we put on our trees are usually the same ones we decorate with every year. They have sentimental value, but they are also some of the most breakable holiday decorations. Ensure they make it to next year by providing ample padding in the box with them. Wrap up glass and other ornaments individually, and then put them in the box with the rest. From there, include newspaper or bubble wrap to fill in the extra space so the ornaments cannot move around and break each other. Keep Your Wrapping Supplies All Together Pack all your wrapping supplies together so you can easily find it next year. If you store it in a storage unit, make sure its container will keep out moisture to keep the paper products intact. Secure Holiday Decoration Storage Near Kansas City MO Four self storage facilities give Kansas City MO residents a massive selection of climate-controlled storage units and indoor parking spaces. Our facilities are on Jefferson Street in Blue Springs MO, Brighton Avenue in Kansas City MO, 66th Terrace in Shawnee KS, and 88th Street in Kansas City MO. We serve local residents and businesses.

Tips for Vehicle Storage in the Winter

Do you need to store your vehicle away for the winter? Whether your car is unequipped to handle winter roads or you need a safe place for your out-of-season recreational vehicles, StorTropolis can help you find the right storage. We have four self storage facilities around Kansas City and offer drive-up storage units and parking spaces for your vehicles. Start storing with StorTropolis today! Wash & Wax Regardless of whether your vehicle is used often or rarely used, give it a good cleaning before putting it into storage. Taking the time to scrub off dirt will protect the paint in the long run. Be sure to put a coat of wax on top to prevent any scratches while in storage. In addition to cleaning the outside, you should also spend time cleaning the inside of your car. Get rid of any trash cluttering your vehicle, and vacuum up crumbs that have accumulated over time. These can attract pests, and you want your storage critter-free. Add Gas & Oil When storing for a long period of time, you need to take extra precautions for your vehicle. Filling the gas tank is the best way to prevent moisture buildup in the tank. Adding stabilizer will also help. Another step to take is changing your oil, particularly if your vehicle will be in storage for more than three months.
