We’ve written before about planning your year of storage, but as you’re going through your year, you might be wondering when the best time is to put things into self-storage. There may be a time of year when your house is busier or filled with more people, such as the spring or summer, or there may be a time when you’re working on more home improvement project, perhaps during the fall. There may also be periods of time when you’re preparing for a life change, such as a baby being born or a relative coming to live with you, and you think that renting a storage unit could be a good idea. At EZ Storage® in Philadelphia, we can help you find the best options, exactly when you need them!

Life Change

dreamstime_xxl_57031465When you’re preparing for a new baby, or you have an elderly relative who is coming to live with you, you want the house to be ready in plenty of time. You might spend a few weeks going through closets or clearing out the guest room of all the stuff that has been stored in there, and you’ll need somewhere to store the belongings you want to keep. If you’re building a nursery, you may have furniture that you need to put into storage until you decide where to put it or what to do with it.

Seasonal Storage

Just like self-storage can be seasonal, so can your motivation to do those home improvement projects that you’ve had on your list for some time. If you’re thinking about redoing the bathroom or updating the kitchen during the summer, you can rent a storage unit for a few months and get everything done. When you’re finished, you can get everything out of storage and put it into your new and improved house!
