A Summer Away From Home

Ever since you were a child, you may have dreamed of traveling the world, seeing new places, meeting new people, and having lots of adventures. Perhaps you read stories where characters left home to find their fortune or to save another character, and from a young age, you had a longing to see the world and experience what it has to offer.

This wanderlust won’t likely go away any time soon, and at EZ Storage® in Detroit, we can provide the perfect self-storage unit for anything you need to store while you travel. If you’re planning to spend this upcoming summer away from home, then visit one of our metro-area locations today to find the ideal space!

Long-Term Travel

You’ve likely taken short trips throughout your life, whether that was a three-day family vacation or a week away at summer camp. Now that you’re older, you’re more interested in long-term travel, and you might be planning to be gone for two or three months.

With any long-term trip, it’s important to consider what you’ll take with you, what you can buy along the way, and what you can possibly live without for a few months. Clothes are likely at the top of your list, since you want to be sure you have plenty of things to wear while you travel. However, you don’t need to pack everything in your closet, and it can make sense to put some boxes and tubs of clothes into storage while you’re gone.

Budgeting Your Expenses

A longer trip is obviously going to cost more money, and it’s important to budget for your travel before you leave. You might know how much your airline tickets and lodging is going to cost, but it can be hard to know how much you’ll spend on food, drink, and souvenirs while you’re on your trip. Setting a daily allowance for meals can be a good way to keep your spending under control, and you can always go the frugal route and shop at a local market or grocery store and then make your own meals in your hostel, Airbnb, or wherever it is you’re staying. This, of course, assumes that you have access to a kitchen with a refrigerator and a stove or oven, or at the very least, a microwave.

You’ll also need to think about the expenses you’ll still have back home. If you’re renting an apartment, then you’ll still be expected to pay rent per the terms of your lease. You can always sublet your place (if your lease allows for this), or you can move things into storage and not have to worry about paying for an apartment until you return from your trip. As for self-storage rent, you can pay your bill from anywhere in the world, and you can also designate an emergency contact to handle your account while you’re gone.

Find Self-Storage Today

If you’re planning to take a long-term trip this summer, then come to EZ Storage® today and we’ll help you find the perfect self-storage solution. We offer affordable units on a month-to-month basis, so you can find a space that fits your budget and then rent only for the time you need. With a variety of sizes available, you can store clothes, furniture, and anything else you want to keep safe while you’re gone.

You’ll also be able to access your unit on any day of the week, so if there’s one last box that you need to drop off on a Saturday when you’re on the way to the airport, you’ll be able to get into your space. If you have questions or concerns about your storage unit, then our staff members and resident managers will do everything they can to provide the answers.
