Moving into a new home is a stressful time. The transition stage is full of confusion and critical decisions about what to bring and what to throw out. This process takes time, during which you may find yourself surrounded by boxes. During this critical transition period, a storage unit near your new home is your unexpected friend. You can make moving simpler by using your storage unit to store some things temporarily.
What To Put In A Storage Unit While Moving
If you are moving to a furnished home or to a smaller home that needs different furniture, you may consider storing your old furniture in a storage unit. You can store dining tables, beds, cabinets, as well as household appliances. This way you don’t need to make a rash decision about selling it in case you might need it or if you want to keep them for sentimental reasons. Conversely, if you are decided about selling them, you can take your time in finding a buyer who will buy your furniture for the right price. Your new home doesn’t have to be crowded with unnecessary furniture while you’re undecided.
Files And Documents
As mentioned, moving is a confusing time, and you might find yourself losing some important documents in the process. You can avoid losing important documents by keeping them in a safe and storing the said safe in a secure storage unit for the time being. You can store your documents in a storage unit until you have time to sort them out or finally have the space to keep them.
Seasonal items tend to be bulky and requires additional space for storing. When you move houses, you may want to sort through your seasonal items—what you want to throw away or don’t need anymore and what you still need. You don’t want these items sitting in your new home while you decide what to do. Alternatively, keeping seasonal items in a storage unit is a common practice. Lots of families keep their ski gear, surfing or diving gears, holiday decoration, and seasonal clothes in a storage unit to make space in their homes.
Books And Magazines
Are you or is someone in your family a bookworm? If so, then you’re probably worrying about where to put boxes of books and magazines. If you are moving to a large home, you likely have sufficient space for bookshelves, but may not be able to arrange them right away. In the meantime, keep your books and magazines in a temporary storage and arrange them when you have finalized your interior. You could also just keep them in the unit and bring home only your favorites so you have space for new books and magazines.
Collectibles And Art
Packing art and collectors’ items requires extra care. You don’t want them sandwiched between boxes of plates and clothes. You can keep them safe while you move by transporting them to a storage unit ahead of time. Then, get them once you have settled. All your collectibles and art will be safe!
