The end of the busy moving season will soon be upon us, but that doesn’t mean “moving” will stop. There is constant movement of people moving across town or across the country. Military families usually move every 2 years! After the first or second move, military families become pros at how to pack, what to store and how to move. Moving takes a lot of patience and a lot of planning. When planning a move it is important to be as organized as possible. Start planning the move as soon as you know that you are moving by starting to select moving companies and starting to gather moving supplies. The more organized you are, the easier moving day will be. One way to help with organization and to help reduce the stress of moving day is to rent a storage unit.
There are many ways that renting a storage unit will be extremely helpful during a move. If you are staging a home for sale, then renting a storage unit is a great option to place your excess items to reduce the amount of clutter in your home. Potential buyers want to see a neutral room, so they can envision their belongings in the room. Packing excess items for home staging also helps jumpstart the moving process. There are many reasons to downsize a home from empty nesters needing less room to seniors moving to a smaller home. Also, storage space may be limited in a new home, which makes renting a storage unit more vital. If couples are moving in together and combining households, renting a storage unit is a great solution for storing duplicate furniture, kitchen items and electronics until there is a time to decide to sell or donate the items. Lastly, moving belongings to storage in stages can lessen the stress of moving day.
Coordinating moving your belongings to a self storage unit will require being prepared. Below are a few tips to help strategize moving and storing household items at a storage unit:
