Get a Headstart on Packing

One of the many reasons that people choose to rent a storage unit during a move is because it helps them get a head start on packing. One of the most stressful parts of moving is the amount of time it takes to pack and unpack belongings. When you have a storage unit to store your belongings, you can get a head start on getting items that aren’t as heavily used, packed.

Aside from that, realtors need to have the house ready for pictures and for showings, and they often ask for you to minimize clutter to really showcase the home. It can be difficult to do this when you don’t have anywhere to move your belongings, which is where renting a storage unit can come in handy!

If you’re wanting to get ahead start on packing while also making your house presentable for the realtors, renting a storage unit is a great option.

Flexibility with Time

The one thing about moving is that there’s no set time limit. While you may want a quick move, you never know just how quickly the market will move. If you wind up selling your house faster than expected, a storage unit can help take some of the pressure off rushing into your next house. All too often, people wind up rushing simply because they need a place to store their furniture and belongings. When you choose to rent a storage unit, you can have peace of mind with your belongings without the pressure of needing to find a place immediately.

Move In Little By Little

Aside from the flexibility of time in regards to finding a house, you also have the opportunity to move your belongings in on your time. As we mentioned earlier, packing and unpacking are often the most time-consuming parts of a move. With a storage unit, you do have more control over how quickly these things need to be done, which is especially beneficial for unpacking.

More often than not, when we move into new homes on a time crunch, we immediately start this next chapter of our life on an unorganized and messy note. Boxes go unpacked, things aren’t put away, and clutter immediately starts to form. If you don’t want that to be the case for your next home, a storage unit can give you the additional time that you need to move items little by little.


The last point that we’re going to cover in today’s blog post is security. This is a significant benefit of renting a storage unit during a big move! Whether you’ve already found a house to move items into or you’re still not sure where your next home will be, a storage unit is a great way to keep your items safe.
