SpaceMax Storage Provides Business Storage for a TV Show!

Posted by Wilson Covington on Tue, Feb 14, 2012

SpaceMax Storage lends its hand to upcoming episodes of DIY Network’s Mega Dens.

In DIY Network’s newest show Mega Dens, host and interior designer Anitra Mecadon creates over-the-top rec-room sanctuaries while giving viewers the skills to renovate their own family spaces. These unbelievable room renovations feature incredible home theaters, innovative gaming areas, clever storage solutions, and more. Anitra's rock 'n' roll approach to design transforms these rooms beyond the homeowners' wildest imaginations.

While shooting in Atlanta, the Mega Dens television crew stored furniture, nice pieces of rare wood and other items to decorate the rooms on the show in SpaceMax Storage's climate controlled units. Outside elements such as heat, humidity and wind can wreak havoc on sensitive interior design elements needed in the TV show. The SpaceMax state-of-the-art storage technology was designed precisely to protect such expensive furniture and decor from harm, and the guys at SpaceMax were honored to contribute to the production of the program.

DIY Network also used the SpaceMax truck to move material from the storage facility to various locations around the Metro Atlanta area, allowing the show to control ever-increasing transportation costs.

Storage Tips: Get the most out of your self storage experience

Posted by Wilson Covington on Mon, Dec 05, 2011

Packing and boxing things up for moving into a self storage unit can get messy. We want to help make it easy on you. So we’ve polled our employees and put together out best storage tips and ideas.
  • It may seem obvious, but always use sturdy boxes. You can put more in each box as well as stacking them higher in your storage unit, saving you valuable space.
  • Placing Styrofoam plates between your dishes is a great way to protect them as you move, plus they can be reused later.
  • Be careful about what you choose to store. Scented candles, household cleaning chemicals, lawn fertilizers and the like can all leave odors in your items that you may not appreciate.
  • When possible, avoid using plastic bags to store items. Not only will they prevent you from stacking, bags they can also trap moisture.
  • Many people are unaware that boxes for clothing, called "wardrobe boxes" are sold at most packing supply stores. If you plan to store clothing for a long period of time, these boxes can prevent hard to remove creases and pricey dry cleaning bills.
  • When storing artwork, consider wrapping it in acid free paper found at most art supply stores.
  • Always store glass table tops, artwork and mirrors vertically rather than flat. 
  • If you live in an arid climate, consider conditioning leather items such as couches and clothing. This can help protect them when they are not in use. 
  • If you are storing bicycles, motorcycles or other machinery be sure to lubricate any areas that might be prone to rust.
  • Don't forget to label your boxes! Check out our free labels, click here.
  • And most importantly, take a few moments to plan how you want to organize your unit. Place items to may need access to towards the front and leave enough room for you to walk into your unit.
