How Many Times Have You Moved in the Past Year?

A couple on their dog sitting on the floor smiling surrounded by boxes and text "How many times have you moved in the past year?"

Most people, in their lifetime, will move an average of 11 times. There are, of course, those who live in the same house for several years, and only move a handful of times in their life. Those in their twenties and thirties are more likely to move than those who have reached their forties and fifties, and are a bit more settled in life. At EZ Storage® in Philadelphia, we love helping people who are planning for a move, or have just completed one. With a self-storage unit, you can keep your belongings safe and sound for as long as you need.

If you’re someone who moves a lot, either for work or because you want to see the world, then you may have relocated several times in the past year. If you’re constantly moving your things from one place to another, then investing in a storage unit can make the most sense.

Take Only What You Need

However, you may have relatives who want you to have certain family heirlooms, or you may own keepsakes that really don’t need to go in the car with you. If you have items that you want to protect, then a secure storage space can be the best option. With your valuables in storage, you can take only what you need and feel confident that everything else is guarded from harm.

No More “Borrowing” Space

When you move to a new place, you may ask a friend or relative if you can put some boxes in their attic or basement while you settle into your new home. You may have some items that have been kept at your parents’ house for several years, and every time you move, you promise that you’re going to take everything with you. Unfortunately, you never have the room for all the boxes and tubs, so they inevitably stay put. This “borrowing” of space may not bother your friends or relatives, but you may feel guilty for taking up room in their house or apartment. By renting a storage unit, you can get things out of their way and assuage your own guilt.

Preparing for That Next Move

dreamstime_xxl_34690337If you know that you’ll be moving again before the end of the year, then now is the best time to find an affordable storage unit. You can sort your belongings by what you know you’ll take with you, and what you feel comfortable leaving behind, at least for the time being. With one of our secure spaces, you’ll know that everything is safe, plus, you can access your unit on any day of the year. If you’re going overseas for a few months, or you’re simply moving across town, you can store those things that you know you won’t need for the foreseeable future, but that you definitely want to keep.

At EZ Storage® in Philadelphia, it is our goal to help every customer find the right self-storage solution. With four metro-area locations, you can find a unit that’s close to your new house, that’s on the way to the airport, or that’s nearby when you’re in town visiting for a few days. Every unit is available on a month-to-month basis, and you can choose between standard and climate-controlled spaces. If you have questions about our facilities, our security, or anything else, then our staff members and resident managers will be more than happy to help.

We look forward to meeting you!
