Mom and Dad always said “never judge a book by its cover”, but they most certainly didn’t have houses in mind. It is basic human nature to make snap judgments on things through our first impressions. Numerous studies have shown that, when interacting with others, people throw out this virtue unconsciously like last week’s Chinese food. The tendency is to make an initial judgment call and then work all other impressions so that they match, or are at least in line with, the first. Whether staging your home or just sprucing it up for bragging rights, curb appeal is so

Everything about your move is going smoothly. You look on your work with an acute satisfaction, gazing across the sea of cardboard and bubble wrap, eager to look on your new kingdom. That wardrobe bowed to your rule and that huge pile of clothing could do nothing but submit itself to your superior packing knowledge. Suddenly, you hear a strange noise from the kitchen. It is the subtle hum of some horrible beast with breath like ice and the stature of a giant. The noise grows louder and louder until it is all you can think about. It is joined

The portable storage unit is commonly used for two things: moving (of course) and for onsite storage. I wanted to go a bit deeper and find some unconventional uses for the container, which would require a small visit to none other than my father. A few weeks back, he rented a portable storage container to declutter and he has been letting it sit in the driveway until his month is up. I received a phone call from him one afternoon where, after he read my previous entry about unconventional container uses, he explained that he had an interesting and groundbreaking

The days of the moving truck are numbered. Maybe not exactly, because it is the classic way to move, but the process is completely overshadowed by the convenience of portable storage. Thousands of people across the southeast have come to this realization in our decade within the industry. With new technology comes a learning curve, and this is no different with the portable storage unit. Some future movers are not entirely sure what to look for (as the containers vary drastically across the moving world). Below is sort of a check list for features that you should be on the

In the moving process, you want to move all the things that you hold close to you but not the pests you may have accumulated over the years. Bed bugs, ants, spiders and rodents may hitch a ride in one of your boxes or inside your pantry to become a nuisance at your new residence. Fortunately, there are some steps that you can take to reduce or eliminate their presence in your new home. Before we get into the information, below are a list of common pests and their tendencies so you will know what to expect:

Ants – tough

It can seem like moving is just one headache after another. Even more so when you think about boxing. The same, tedious motion starts to get to you after the first room, burning the corrugation pattern into your brain for the next few months. The technique behind packing the box and organizing the collection of boxes is in no way advanced, but there may be a few things here that you can take away. Just chill back for a few moments, tend to that cranial pain, and follow some of these tips to make the boxing process a little less

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me. Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you

The Palmetto state is blanketed in a cloud of smoke, New Zealand became a British colony on this day, Epcot center was first opened by Disney, and the nights just keep getting colder. Bundle up in your favorite sweater (and dust off the festive one for the upcoming holidays) and start planning for one of these glorious events being hosted across the state. We tend to stay indoors, isolated during the winter, but there is no better time to be social as thousands of South Carolinians go out to spread the holiday cheer. Stop stressing about family table arrangements and

The portable storage unit is typically used for two things: moving (of course) and for onsite storage. I wanted to go a bit deeper and find some unconventional uses for the container, which would require some field work. I was puzzled at first about the idea of an economic and social collapse because the world doesn’t seem all that bad at all: low poverty rates, lots of people are reading, and they are living much longer. I soon learned that ‘prepping’ is not necessarily about the crippling fear of everything dissolving into anarchy, it’s about the natural pursuit of survival.

It is the middle of a frigid week in the Palmetto State, the election is behind us, and Cambodia celebrates its Independence Day. On this day in history, the Pilgrims aboard the mayflower spotted the coast of Cape Code, Massachusetts in 1620, a blackout spanning 13 hours occurred in the same area 300 years later, and Albert Einstein was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics. The world is a beautiful and profound place, so get out there and enjoy it! To help you with that, I have organized and stored a variety of upcoming events in the great, virtual storage
