New Year, New Home | How Self Storage Can Help

The New Year can come with plenty of new and exciting changes. If one of the things you are getting ready for is a new home, self storage units and moving go hand-in-hand for a number of reasons. Not only will they help ease some of the stress that comes with moving, but they can also give you the peace of mind of knowing your belongings are safe until needed.

Declutter Before Moving

Decluttering is always an important part of moving. There is no point wasting your time moving a bunch of items that you don’t need or will never use again.

Start by moving some of your less used items into a self storage unit before you move. By doing this, you will be moving all of your much needed and regularly used items into your new home first. Once this is done, you can see how much room you have left for your more non-essential items.

Store Items For Your New Home

Many people want to purchase new furniture, accessories and even appliances when moving to a new home. By renting a storage unit, you can look for items you want on sale.  You can then store your new items in a safe and secure storage unit until you are ready to move into your new home.

This way, you also won’t have to worry about piling them up into your existing home and giving yourself no room to live.

Move At Your Own Pace

When moving day comes, it can be overwhelming to have your new home overrun by boxes and misplaced furniture.

With a self storage unit, you can keep everything in storage until you are ready to unpack, as unpacking is a process that you don’t want to rush. You may end up getting rid of items that are important or sentimental to you.

Alleviate Some Of The Stress With Self Storage

The process of moving can be very stressful. By renting a self storage unit, you can reduce stress by knowing your items are in a safe and secure environment until you are ready for them.

Self storage facilities also offer month to month rentals. This means you can take as long as you like to organize your new home without having to worry about long term contracts.

Use Self Storage During Home Renovations

If your new home needs some renovations, don’t let this delay you from moving in. By renting a self storage unit, you can put everything in storage from the room or rooms being renovated, other than cramming them into other parts of your home and leaving you no space to live.

Storing these items will also keep them clean and safe from any possible construction damage or dust.

Unforeseen Problems

Unfortunately, as exciting as moving day can be, there can always be unforeseen problems that may arise.

If you are building your new home, there could possibly be construction delays that prevent you from moving in on the scheduled move in date. This can pose a huge problem if you have already sold your old home or given your landlord notice.

With a self storage unit, you can take all of your essential items and temporarily move in with family or a hotel and keep all of your household items in a self storage unit until you are ready to move into your new home.

Occasionally, there can even be a hick up with the mortgage approval. These can usually be taken care of within a very short period of time. A self storage unit is a great short-term storage solution as there are no long-term contracts required.

Extra Storage Space

Especially if you are downsizing, you may not have as much room in your new home as you did in your last. Whether you are moving from a house with a garage into a condo, or simply no longer have a basement, a self storage unit can help as a long-term storage solution.

Keep all of your seasonal items, lawnmowers and gardening tools in a storage unit until you need them next. This way, there is no need of getting rid of items you want to keep, simply because you have no room for them anymore.
