Keep Your Home And Valuables Safe While On Vacation

 

While going on vacation provides a much-needed break from daily hassles, leaving your home alone can cause a few anxieties to stir. The longer you’re away, the more your house looks unoccupied to anyone who might be watching. There are a few things you can do to help protect your home and your valuables while you’re gone, so you can enjoy your relaxing trip away.

Ask your neighbours, family, or friends to occasionally drop by to keep an eye on things and to do a bit of maintenance. The evening or night is a good time because they can turn lights and the TV on while there, which will be visible from the road. Ask if they can help by taking out the garbage, open a blind or shut a curtain, bring in your mail, move the sprinkler, etc. Offer to return the favour and consider a token of appreciation. If you can’t manage to find anyone to assist you, put a hold on your mail and packages and try to hide the appearance of any unfinished chores.

To offer extra peace-of-mind while away, consider keeping valuables safe in local self storage with a range of security features. At Abacus Self Storage in Richmond Hill, we serve the Greater Toronto Area’s residential and commercial storage needs with bright, super clean spaces, climate-controlled units, and sophisticated security features. These include personal key code access, monitored intrusion alarms, excellent lighting, a fully-fenced facility with an electronic security gate, and video camera surveillance. Staff and the Property Manager frequently run security checks. We also provide contents insurance as an added safety measure.

Our self storage rental units come in a variety of sizes, so whether you’re storing several larger items like bicycles, equipment, crates and boxes, or simply selecting a few, smaller, precious items, we have mini storage to large units to suit your needs. Our staff is happy to provide their recommendation for sizing, and you can always upsize or downsize. Please note that hazardous materials, flammable goods, explosives, animals, and perishable food is prohibited and unsafe to store.

Before you leave home for a vacation, be sure to clean up. Take out the trash and recycling, mow the lawn extra short, set up timers for the lights and TV to turn on and off and various times, turn off the water, unplug any electronics you’re not placing on timers, throw out or give away any food that will spoil, and water your plants. In addition to preventing anything from going to waste, expending extra energy, or going awry, you’ll feel good upon returning home to a clean and safe space.

Our storage units in North York are protected by multiple safeguards, offering layers of protection that your home might not have. Abacus Self Storage is a recipient of a 2018 Consumer Choice Award for excellence, and we have a stellar reputation among our customers. We’re easily accessible from Richmond Hill, Thornhill, Markham, Vaughan, Maple, Aurora, and anywhere in the Toronto area. Call us if you’re planning a trip and wondering if self storage can help you.
