How a Storage Locker Can Be Your Saving Grace When You Move

Moving can be super stressful, but with a storage locker your next move can go more smoothly. Here’s how.

Nothing beats the thrill of finding the perfect new place. Once you’ve been approved to lease, rent or buy, it feels like you’re on top of the world. Unfortunately, the moving process tends to bring you back to reality in a less than exciting way.

Packing, sorting, and moving all your stuff can be a huge pain. Sometimes unexpected things come up during the course of your move that add to an already stressful situation. When moving stress strikes, a storage locker just might be your saving grace. Here are three reasons why you might want to get a storage locker for your big move.

Get an Early Start

Procrastination will absolutely come back to haunt you when you’re in the process of moving. Moving tips from the experts always recommend getting an early start on packing up your place. Start boxing up anything that you don’t use every day right away, and be sure to label all your boxes carefully so you know where to find stuff later.

To clear up space in your house during this sorting process, you might consider renting a storage unit. Take all your packed boxes over to the storage unit well before moving day. This way, you won’t have to spend weeks stepping over boxes and you’ll be able to see your packing progress more clearly. If you have to clean your place before you go, it will be much easier with all that stuff out of the way.

Fill in the Gaps

Sometimes moving can turn into a logistical nightmare. Let’s say you have to be out of your place on the first of the month, but your new home won’t be ready for you until the eighth. What in the world are you going to you do with all your stuff during that gap of time? Hold it in a storage unit until you can move it in on the eight.

Another gap of time to consider is that period of trying to figure out how to utilize your new space. It can be a daunting task to go from one space that you know well to one that you don’t. The nature of moving is that you’re not going to be in the same kind of space you’ve been used to, which means you have to find new homes for all of your things. Renting a storage locker is a great way to bridge the gap between your old home and your new one during this process. Knowing that you have a place to store all your furniture, books, and mementos will take some of the pressure off during this transitional period. You can take the time to figure out where your stuff can go, which will give you the chance to utilize smart packing.

Take Your Time

Rushing during a move adds extra stress to the whole process. When you have a storage unit, you can move things out of your house early and you can take your time bringing things into your new home. You don’t have to rush to move in all at once. Keep some things in storage as long as you need to.

Remember how we said you should carefully label all your boxes? This will come in handy during this stage of your move. As you slowly bring things over from storage, you’ll know exactly where everything is thanks to the care you put into organization in the past.
