The best ways to use storage during a move:
For a lot of people, storing some, or even all of your belongings when you’re moving can help relieve some of the stress inherent in the process. Moving is a challenging puzzle with lots of pieces. Here we offer some advice on how to make it all go more smoothly.
When you have small children, using self storage can be helpful because it makes it easier to do a little at a time. It helps lighten some of the burden of having to deal with so many boxes at one time.
When you’re having to move on short notice, using storage can build in some more time. If you have to move in a hurry, you can store your things while you stay with family or friends and then move your stuff in when you find a place to live.
Another good use of self storage is when you are traveling as part of the move. If you’re moving to a new city or state, putting your things in storage can allow you to travel and find a new home before getting your belongings and moving them in when the time is right.
When considering storage, you’ll want to evaluate your items. Decide what to store based on its value to you. Ask yourself, is it something you can easily replace? Will it fit into your new space? Does it have sentimental value? Memorabilia, photos, trophies, and family heirlooms are something you can store for a time, and then get them out when you’re ready to put them in your new home.
