Moving Out:  Finding a Storage Solution

Ten years ago, I found myself with the need to move out of my apartment before my new place was ready. For a month, I camped out on my best friend's sofa. That also meant I had to find somewhere to store my furniture and other belongings. Fortunately for me, a local storage facility offered container rentals for reasonable prices. I was able to have a container delivered to my apartment, filled it with my stuff, and then have it transported to a facility. It remained there until my new place was ready. At that point, the service delivered the container and we set to work loading everything in my new home. If your lease is expiring but your new place will not be free for a month or two, let's talk. Temporary storage solutions are easier to come by than you think.

Three Reasons to Use a Storage Unit When You Have an Apartment during College

When you finally live on your own in an apartment while attending college, life can be full of adventure and fun. It can also be challenging to undertake many of the responsibilities that living in an apartment can present, but with the right information things can be a little easier. You might not think much about renting a storage unit if you have an apartment, but here are some reasons that a storage unit can help you during this time.

Have a Local Place to Store Items during Holiday Breaks

During holiday breaks, you might not want to bring your computer or other costly items with you to your parents' house or your winter destination, but you probably want to make sure they remain safe while you are away. Storing a few items in a reputable storage facility for a few weeks can give you peace of mind. You'll know that important items are stored under lock and key and no one can walk away with them while you are gone. For extra protection, choose a facility that offers supervision of units all day long.

Store Shared Items

If you and a roommate have pitched in for a television, coffee table, or other large items, you'll have to figure out where to put these shared items over the summer. Conversely, you might find yourself with extra items if you move and a new roommate already has a furnished place. A storage unit can allow you to hold on to these things until you can determine where they will ultimately go.

Save Money While Looking for a New Place

If your apartment lease is up at the end of the school year, you might already be looking for a new apartment. However, you may not be in town for the summer. Instead of renting a new place right away and paying rent on an apartment you won't even be in for a few months, put your things in a storage unit. You may find that you end up saving money and giving yourself a longer time to find a perfect new apartment to live in instead of rushing around.

Now that you are aware of the ways a storage unit might be helpful to you, look for a storage facility near your school or apartment through websites like http://www.storageinphila.com. Compare a few in the area so you choose one that suits all your needs.
