Use Self-Storage To Ease The Work Of Moving

Moving is a full-time job with a short window for completion. It is one of the most difficult times in anyone's life. One way to make moving easier is utilizing storage to ease the strain of moving. It takes away frustration and eases the burden of packing.

Why Rent Storage?

Knickknacks and decorative items are the first items packed and the last unpacked. The boxes for these items take up needed space. Moving the boxes around takes time and creates frustration. Putting these boxes into storage clears the way for easier packing of more essential items as the moving date draws closer.

Find The Right Storage Size

There are many non-essential items that need not remain in the home until moving day. Estimate the number of boxes necessary to contain these items and use that as a basis for renting a unit. Remember that boxes stack on top of each other and include height as a rental factor. Check with one of our local storage facilities for rental sizes. We would be glad to help with storage space estimates and often offer specials.

Storage Is Not Forever

When placing items into storage during a move, it is important to remember they will not remain there forever. It is also important to take into account the seasonal differences while items will be in storage. In the summer it is hot and winter is cold. Only store items not affected by these factors, or rent a unit with heat or air conditioning. A short time may not affect all stored items, so take that into account as well.
