Relocating to a new city or state is a stressful experience. It requires planning, preparation, and organization. For military families, relocating is a task they face frequently. On average, military families relocate every two to four years. That’s a lot of packing and unpacking. One thing that can help make the moving process a little less stressful is renting a self storage unit.
Under ideal circumstances, you’d have months to plan for a big move. You’d have plenty of time to find the perfect new house. You’d have time to go through all of your belongings and get everything organized. But when you’re a military family, these moves often come with little notice. As a result, you may not end up with your dream house. If you find yourself in a home that is smaller than your previous home, you may be wondering how in the world you will fit everything comfortably into your new space. Rather than try and stuff every closet and fill every square inch of space, why not give yourself some breathing room by storing excess items in a storage unit?
Even if you’ve found your ideal house, if you’re moving on short notice it may not be ready when you are. If you find yourself living in temporary housing during this transitional period, a self storage unit is a great solution for storing all of your belongings until you can move into your new house. A storage unit also gives you a place to keep everything while you move it, allowing you to move and unpack a little at a time.
Packing and unpacking your home frequently can help you pinpoint which items you use on a daily basis and which ones you’re holding onto for posterity or future use. Rather than using up valuable space for those items that you don’t need right away, store them in a self storage unit. As an added bonus, by keeping them boxed up in storage, they’ll be ready to load on the moving truck when it’s time for the next relocation.
If you’re getting ready for a long-term deployment, you may be wondering what to do with all of your belongings. Storing everything in a self storage unit is a cost-effective solution. Your possessions will be safe while you’re gone and be ready for you when you return.
