Make Moving this Fall Less Stressful


Make Moving this Fall Less Stressful


Many families move between May and September. Other families wait until fall and take advantage of lower prices and more flexible scheduling with moving companies. Whatever your reason is for relocating, it can still be stressful, but you don’t have to fret over packing up your belongings to trek across the city, state, or country.  5A Rent-A-Space can come to the rescue!

Choose to take steps to ensure you have a smoother moving process. Don’t forget to take advantage of a storage unit from 5A Rent-A-Space near Maui. We have a wide range of sizes to fit your needs and alleviate some of the stress that comes with packing up, moving and unpacking. We have a full selection of packing supplies and will even use our free moving truck to transport your belongings to your unit when you rent from us.

6 Ways to Ensure a Smooth Move this Fall Season

Gain peace of mind and confidence in your move when you follow these six suggestions:

1.    Check Out Your Children’s New School: Your kids will probably be sad about leaving their friends and nervous about meeting new ones. Help lessen their anxiety by sitting with them and discussing how the move will work. Try to visit their new school if possible before they begin classes. Be sure to point out the exciting things in your new neighborhood as well so that they can start getting excited about the move. Remember that school systems may differ in their schedules; therefore, it helps to prepare ahead of time.

2.    Clear the Travel Path of Debris: Loading and unloading your moving truck should be as smooth as possible. Take time to sweep up any debris between the front door and your vehicle. It will make it much safer and prevent having too much dirt tracked into your new home. Always have a clear path throughout your old and new home for moving the heavy furniture and all those boxes.

3.    Contact Utility Companies Early: It may take a few days for your electricity to be switched on. If you work from home, you will want your internet up and ready as soon as possible. Reach out to the different utility companies and establish a service that will be readily available to you on moving day.

4.    Cover Your Floors: Mud, sand, dirt, and other bits of gunk can get trapped in your rugs and carpets. Consider laying down plastic sheeting or cut open black trash bags and tape them down. This will help keep your new home cleaner and protect your floors.

5.    Dress Comfortably: You will be lugging boxes all day long and sweating. Dress for comfort, including sturdy, non-skid shoes. Your aching body, particularly your feet, will thank you for it.

6. Rent a Storage Space: One way to make unpacking much easier on your whole family is to utilize a self-storage unit. Here, you can place little-used items and find them when you need them. If you are low on closet and storage space in your new home, then a rented storage unit can ease that burden.

Fall Decor Tips for Your Home

Fall Decor Tips for Your Home

As summer winds down and fall fast approaches, many of us take joy in redecorating parts of our homes to better fit the upcoming period of falling leaves, shorter days, and more time with family. Whether it is through a different color scheme, or through entirely different items, setting up your home to fit a fall aesthetic can be a rewarding endeavor.
Get your home into the fall spirit with some of the following ideas and tips! Along the way if you feel like you are running out of space, look into a storage unit at 5A Rent-A-Space. We can keep all of your summer goods safe and secure while you prepare for Fall and Winter a few months later.

Decorative Ideas for Fall

  1. Keep the Color Scheme in Mind: The most fundamental design aspect of fall that we often overlook is the color scheme. Warm, muted oranges can combine with deep burgundy, off white, and many other earth tones to create a sense of ease and relaxation in the home. Experiment with knick-knacks and other decorative items that evoke these colors to start feeling like fall immediately.
  2. Polish up some Pumpkins: Pumpkins do not have to be large, bright orange, and reserved for the spooky aesthetic of Halloween! This versatile fruit comes in a variety of different shapes, sizes, and colors. Check out your local nursery to see what types of pumpkins they have available. Small, off-white and dark green pumpkins are in this year, and can give you the pop of fall spirit you desire without overwhelming your aesthetic.
  3. Break out your favorite fall flavors: Pumpkin spice everything! Candles, coffees, creamers, muffins, cakes, chocolates! Spread cozy fall scents around your home. Whether it’s pulling freshly baked pumpkin spice muffins out of the oven or simply lighting a favorite fall candle, achieving a cozy fall feeling at home is easy!
  4. Try out some Trader Joe’s fall favorites: Visit or
