How a Storage Unit Helps You Move

3 Ways a Storage Unit Can Help With Your Move

Going into the fall the real estate market usually picks up. People who wanted to relocate before winter are buying and selling houses and there is a lot of activity in the moving industry. If you’re in that situation, you’ll be looking for ideas to make the process easier and less stressful.

We’re here to help! Today, we’re sharing 3 ways that a storage unit can help with your move, from pre-sale to post-move.

#1 – Pre-Sale: A Storage Unit Can Help Sell Your Home

That’s right! One of the best tips for selling a home quickly is to remove personal belongings, extra furniture, pictures, clutter, even clothing – to make your house look more neutral and more like a show-home. A portable storage unit is the perfect solution. We’ll deliver it to your driveway and you can fill it up with everything you don’t want potential buyers to see. When. you’re done, we’ll remove the portable unit and store it at our location for as long as needed. Staging your home can help sell your home quickly and that might be important if you are trying to re-locate under a timeline, or if you already have an offer on another home.

#2 – Moving: A Mobile Unit Can Help You Move Your Furnishings & Belongings

Renting a truck or hiring movers has been the traditional way to move. If you don’t have a lot of furniture, renting a panel truck could be the way to go if you are comfortable with driving it. But here’s another idea! Order a portable storage unit from us and we’ll deliver it to your location. Fill it up with your furniture and belongings and we’ll take the full unit to your next location. You can take your time unpacking your mobile unit while you move in. When you’re done, give us a call and we’ll remove the empty storage unit. No truck rental – no time pressure!

#3 – Post-Move: Longer Storage of Furniture and Belongings

Moving causes upheaval. It’s a challenge to go through all your belongings, especially if you are downsizing to smaller accommodation. And at the time, it can be difficult to make decisions on some items that you might want later, or you might want a family member to have down the road. A storage unit can provide that temporary storage solution so that you don’t clutter up your new home. Prices are very affordable and so are the terms for lease.
