Getting Your House Ready for the New Year

It might be hard to believe that 2020 is just around the corner, but the truth is that another year and another decade are about to come to an end. At EZ Storage® in Philadelphia, we know how exciting it can be to think about the new year and all that it has to offer, but we also know how overwhelming it can be to think about what you want or need to get done over the next few months.

If you’re looking for a self-storage unit in order to get your house ready for the new year, then visit one of our metro-area locations today. We have a variety of unit sizes to choose from, and our team will gladly help you decide which space is best for you.

People Moving In

If you have people who are planning on moving into your house at the beginning of the new year, then now is the time to start rearranging things and getting ready for their arrival. Perhaps a friend or relative is relocating for a new job, and they need to stay with you for a few weeks while they look for a new house or apartment. You might need to clean out the guest room so that they have somewhere to sleep, as well as make more space in the basement and/or garage for their belongings.

Should you decide to rent a self-storage space, there’s always the option of sharing it with your friend or relative so that they can store their furniture while they look for a new place. With our affordable rates, splitting the cost can be financially feasible for both of you!

People Moving Out

The new year may also bring people moving out, such as kids starting their first year of college. As they’re getting things ready to move, there will likely be items that they’re going to leave behind, such as clothes and furniture. While you may not be planning on turning their bedroom into a home office quite yet, you might be thinking about how you can store the belongings that they aren’t taking with them.

By renting a local storage space, you can keep everything safe until the person who moved out comes back for it or decides what to do with it. For your college student, it’s likely that they’re going to be moving out permanently in the near future, once they graduate and start their career.

Remodels and Upgrades

Your plans for the new year may also include remodeling and upgrading your home. Once the holidays have ended and everything has quieted down, you may look at the kitchen and decide that it doesn’t have the best layout, or you might think how nice it would’ve been to have another bedroom to offer guests during the holiday season. The new year can be a great time to start on interior remodels, but you’ll likely have to move some things out of the house before you can begin. For example, if you’re going to add a bedroom in the basement, then you may have to find somewhere else to store those boxes that have been down there for 10 years or more.

Remodels and upgrades can often take longer than you expect, but with our monthly leases, you can rent a storage unit for as long as you need. If you need to keep appliances, furniture, and other items safe while you update your kitchen or basement, then rent a storage unit so you won’t have to worry about your belongings getting damaged.
