5 Reasons You Should Rent a Storage Unit During Your Move

closing storage unitWe accumulate a lot of stuff throughout our lives. Some of us are better than others at downsizing before moving, but oftentimes, we have a hard time letting go. If this sounds like you, it may be a good idea to look into renting a storage unit.

Although storage units are useful spaces for items to remain for the rest of time, there are plenty of temporary storage rental benefits. Let’s take a look at a few ways you can get use out of a temporary storage space during your move!

5 Ways Storage Solutions Make Your Move Easier

1. Declutter Your Home While You Sell

Once your house is on the market, you’ll want to attract buyers! In order to showcase the best possible version of your space, you may consider decluttering. Even if your home is tidy, potential buyers may be thrown off by full closets or the large amount of boxes stacked in the basement.

Keeping your extra belongings out of sight and in a storage unit allows individuals touring your home to visualize their own items there – plus minimal clutter can make a room feel larger!

2. Store Valuables 

Most moving companies require you to move valuable, fragile items. Your antiques or that collection of paintings passed down several generations should never make it onto the moving truck with your couch!

Temporary storage space allows you to safely store items like these while your focus on moving the larger items.

3. Cut Down on Moving Costs 

If you’re on a strict budget, a storage unit may be a temporary solution to help cut back on the cost of moving. Typically storage units can be rented for under $100, plus you may be able to receive a discounted rate your first month.

You can always move necessary, bulky items on move day and rent a storage space for smaller items.

4. Ensure You Find the Right Buyer for Special Items

Let’s say you have already decided on a few larger items that won’t make sense in your new space. If this is the case, you are probably looking to make a few extra bucks!

It can be tricky to coordinate a move while finding the right buyer for your old belongings. Renting a storage unit allows you the time and space to figure how you would like to go about finding these items a new home.

5. Reduce Stress

The process of moving can come with a few hiccups, but the likelihood of a stressful move really comes down to how much time you invest in the planning process.

If you can get ahead of the game, you will probably be in better shape for that fateful day. If you have a lot of stuff, renting a storage unit ahead of time to organize your things is a great way to minimize moving day headaches. This kind of scenario allows you to gradually move into your new space, while carefully considering whether it’s time to purge.
