At EZ Storage®, we know that life can bring about changes at a moment’s notice, and you may find yourself needing to move or to store some things outside of your home. With our affordable self-storage units in Philadelphia, you can find a great space for your belongings, and you can keep everything safe for as long as you need.

When life suddenly changes, and you need to store some things, there are a few options you can choose. In this post, we’ll take a look at three of those options.

1. A Friend or Relative’s House

A friend or relative may be willing to let you use their basement or garage as a storage depot, and while this might be suitable for awhile, it’s probably not a long-term solution. This is especially true if you have to move out of your current residence, and you’re bringing everything you own with you.

2. Your Own Basement or Garage

You might not have to move out your house or apartment, but if there’s been damage to a part of the residence, then you’re likely going to need to move things out of the affected rooms. If a tree branch crashed through the roof above your bedroom, or the water heater broke and flooded a part of the house, then you can store furniture and appliances in the garage or the basement (granted that they weren’t affected). However, you might be tight on space in the garage, due to the fact that you park your cars in there, and the basement might be too small for large items like a couch or a washing machine. If you can’t get the item down the stairs, then an alternative solution is needed!

3. A Self-Storage Unit
