How storage units help simplify moving

March 13th, 2023 in Tips and How-to's


If you’re like most people you dread moving day. Even under the best circumstances it's a long, tiresome and stressful task. And no wonder.  Moving an entire household worth of possessions is a daunting task!

So, what can you do to make it easier? Simplify! Break up the amount of work you need to do on that day by moving everything you don’t need into storage. 

Storage units simplify moving

  • Spread out the workload. Only do a fraction of the work on the actual moving day
  • Manage time better. With less to do at once, it all becomes more manageable.
  • Makes organizing easier and faster. Smaller chunks are easier to deal with.
  • Gives you peace of mind. With most items safely in storage, there’s less to stress about.
  • Gives you time to make your new place your own. Maybe you like all the new space!

Start by determining what size storage units you’re going to need (we can help you with that, just give us a call). Then box up your non-essential items like off-seasonal clothing and sports equipment, mementos, carpets, furniture, books–anything you’re not immediately using. (Read here for handy packing and storage tips). Drop them all off at your storage unit when you have time before your big move.

For moving day, you’re only going to need some essentials. For most that means some basic necessities for the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, anything related to work, plus some recreational items for yourself and the kids. Everything else can be easily dealt with later whenever you have the time and energy.

And remember, for your own peace-of-mind, there’s no rush to pick up your possession from your storage lockers–we rent on a monthly basis. You may decide that you really like having more living space with all your non-essential items locked safely away off-site. If you decide you don’t want to move everything back home and want to keep some things in storage, you can easily move to a smaller (or larger) unit to accommodate your changing needs.

Take advantage of the easy, super-convenient solution storage units offer to make moving day a breeze!
