Why You Need a Self Storage Unit While Moving

Moving is never an easy process to go through. Even if it’s just you alone moving spaces, the work adds up. When you add kids, pets, and significant others into the equation it becomes even more complicated and difficult. One way to significantly reduce your stress level is to rent a self storage unit during the moving process! Here’s why. 

Easier Staging For Your Home

If you’re in the process of selling your home, you will soon find out the importance of having a nicely staged home for photographs and showings. High-quality photos of a beautifully staged home can make a huge difference in receiving quality offers from potential buyers. 

It can be hard to keep a home staged and decluttered with all of your usual furniture and miscellaneous items that inevitably pile up. Make the staging and decluttering phase of the home selling process easier by renting a storage unit to store your extra stuff until you sell your house. 

Even if you’re a total neat freak and nothing in your house is messy, it’s easier for buyers to envision their belongings in your space when it is significantly decluttered. Simple actions like clearing off shelves and emptying packed closets will make it that much easier for buyers to envision how their new home will look.

Give Yourself the Gift of Less Work

Renting a storage space makes it easier to stage your home, and makes it easier to keep it organized as well. Cutting down on extra furniture and household items will reduce your cleaning duties significantly, therefore reducing your household chores along with it. 

Moving isn’t the only life event that can benefit from some extra storage space. Check out our blog on easing life transitions with a self storage unit here!

Safety for Keepsake Items

One major stressor when moving is figuring out how you’re going to pack, store, and transfer any of your precious, valuable, and sentimental items. Although many moving companies ensure that your favorite items will be moved with care, it is better to be safe than sorry. Keeping items in a self storage unit during the moving process will bring you peace of mind and allow you to determine precisely where to put them in your new home when the time is right. 

The Inconvenient Inbetween 

More often than not, people find themselves in a situation where they have sold their home but have not yet bought a new one. When this happens, a storage unit transitions from a useful place to an absolute necessity. 

Storage units are safer than renting a garage. Plus, they have complementary items like dollies and carts, and often offer easy access for trucks with ground-level storage or truck loading areas. 

Are you moving back in instead of moving out? A storage unit can still come in handy. Check out our guide on cheap self storage for moving back in with your parents here!

Slow and Steady Wins the Race

If you know you’re moving a good amount ahead of time, a self storage unit can be an incredibly worthwhile investment. You can begin packing up items you won’t need or don’t regularly use, making the overall moving process less stressful and more efficient. 

Then, once you move into your new home, you have the time to figure out exactly where you want all of your things to go. Having a unit with your belongings allows you to envision your space in many ways, and then pick which arrangement will work best, all without a pile of cardboard boxes cluttering up the entire floor space. 

What Do You Actually Need? You’ll Find Out

A self storage unit can help you declutter after you move. Renting a storage unit will help you decide what you need and miss. Maybe you thrifted an extra desk eight years ago, but you find you’re doing fine without it. Now you can sell it, make some extra cash, and have a more spacious living environment.
