Moving can be an incredibly stressful situation. It seems like the list of things to do leading up to, during, and after, a move are endless. From packing up your belongings securely, to figuring out the logistics of how to transport your belongings to your new place, to garnering the manpower to assist when it comes to loading and unloading your things, there’s a lot to consider when making a move. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg!
One way to ease some of the stress that comes along with moving is to lean on a storage service for support during the undertaking. Take a look below at the various ways that a storage facility can alleviate some of the stress of moving.
Storage In The Interim
In a lot of instances, a move isn’t a simple 1,2,3 process. There are times when the closing date on the place that you used to live, doesn't line up exactly with the move in date at your new residence. In those types of situations, many people don’t have a place that they can stay (Especially with all of their furniture, appliances, personal belongings, etc. in tow!) in the interim. In this situation, the best solution may be to stay at a hotel, or at a friend/family member's home and then store your things at a storage facility for the time being.
Take Your Time Moving In
Moving is all about dates and deadlines. You have a set day that you need to be completely moved out of the place that you’re currently living in. Then you have a certain date that you can move into your new pad, a timeframe when you can pickup and drop-off the rented truck, etc. Making deadlines can be very anxiety inducing, but with the use of a storage facility, the deadlines stop right there!
Rather than rushing to get your things into your new residence, unpack all of the boxes, and get everything set up in your new home right away, you can take your time and get things back little by little. This gives you time to figure out how you want the setup in your new home to be, and time to plan it out accordingly instead of using a hodgepodge approach while being surrounded by the chaos of boxes and wrapped up furniture.
First bring in the everyday necessities, then find a system that works for you (Like focusing on one room at a time!) and get your things delivered back to you as needed.
Numerous Space Plans
Storage space isn’t one size fits all. Everyone has their own storage space needs based off of the size of the place they’re moving out of, how much stuff they have, how much room they have in their new place, etc.
