COVID-19 Has Created an Increased Demand for Product Storage
Due to quarantine, many businesses have adapted to providing services and products at a socially safe distance…online!
Many brick and mortar stores and shops have closed, but their websites are still open. Some have moved physical stores online and implemented or improved online shopping for customers. Because of this, U-Stor and the storage/warehouse industry has seen a rise in storage need for products being received and shipped.

Rain boots should be used for puddles, not basement flooding. Here are some cheap ways to dry up basement leaks!
