Posted on

If you are getting ready to move, a secure self-storage unit can be a great tool for assisting with your move. Here are a few things that you need to know about using a storage unit to help with your next move.

Rent a Storage Unit as Soon as Possible

First, you are going to want to rent a self-storage unit as soon as possible. That way, you will know that you have a storage unit that you can use to put your things in.

Store Boxes as You Pack Them

You don't have to wait until moving day to use your storage unit; you can move boxes that you packed but don't want to be stacked up around your home into your storage unit. Moving boxes into your storage unit as you pack them up can help you prepare for your move, and make your home less cluttered during the moving process. Having a bunch of boxes stacked in your home for weeks can be stressful. A self-storage facility can help eliminate some of the stress.

Store Items You Don't Want in Your New Home

You may have items that you don't want to take to your new home, but don't want to get rid of. Maybe you have furniture you are not sure you want in your new home; you can put it in your storage unit. Or maybe you have seasonal items, like holiday decorations, that you don't want to clutter up your new garage. You can put those items into your storage unit instead. You can continue to use your storage unit after you move to store items you don't want to put into your new home. 

Get a Free Moving Truck

Many storage facilities offer a free moving truck so that you can more easily move items into your storage unit. You can use your self-storage rental to gain access to a free moving truck, that you can use to move your items into storage, and move other items into your home. Getting access to a free moving truck can help lower your moving expenses. 

If you are moving, rent a storage unit. You can move boxes into the storage unit as you pack up your home so that they don't clutter up your space. You can slowly move items out of the storage unit into your new home. You can use the storage units to store items you don't want in your new home, so things don't get cluttered. A storage unit can make moving easier and simpler.
