Changing Jobs This Summer?

Summer can be a great time for new things, from going to new places to eating at a new restaurant that opened down the street. It can also be a great time for looking for a new job. You may have been thinking about a career change for some time, or perhaps your current company is downsizing and you need to look for another job. Whatever the case may be, changing jobs can bring about a number of other changes in your life.

At EZ Storage® in St. Louis, we can help you find the perfect self-storage unit for anything you need to store while you transition into your new job. You may need to move closer to work or you may be home less often, making it necessary to keep your clutter under control. Visit one of our metro-area locations today to learn more!

Moving Closer to Work

A new job often means a new commute, and while it might not be too far to the new office or shop, you may grow tired of driving an extra 30 to 40 minutes five times a week. Moving closer to work could be an option, and every time you relocate, you usually find some things you didn’t know you still owned. Storing those things will keep them safe until you decide what to do with them or until you find a place for them in your new house or apartment.

Moving closer to work can also mean downsizing when it comes to square footage. You might be moving to a more densely populated part of the city, which means that bigger apartments are harder to come by. You may also be moving in with relatives or roommates, and that can mean storage space is limited. By bringing your extra boxes and tubs to one of our storage centers, you can keep things safe and not have to try to fit everything into your new place.

Home Less Often

A new job can also place more demands on your time. Instead of working 25 to 35 hours a week at a part-time job, you’re now putting in 40+ hours at a full-time job. This can mean that your home less often, which gives you less time to clean and to keep the house in order.

You may also have to travel for your new job, even if it’s just a few days in a neighboring state. When you’re not home a few nights each week, you might worry about the security of some of your belongings. By putting valuables or collectibles into storage, you can safeguard them against theft or vandalism. If you have a car or motorcycle that you want to store while you’re gone, we can help you find a space for that as well.
