Moving the First of the Year?

The end of the year is often filled with lots of shopping, traveling, and spending time with friends and family. If you add moving to that list, then your life can become truly hectic. However, it may unavoidable that you have to move during the end of this year or the first of next year, and if you are planning to relocate, then it’s important to begin preparing as soon as possible. At EZ Storage® in Detroit, we can help you find a suitable self-storage unit for anything you want to keep safe during your move.

How Far Are You Going?

When planning your move, it’s important to know how far you’re going. You’ve visited your new place, and you know the town, neighborhood, or general area, but have you calculated how far it actually is? It can be a good idea to map it out to see how long it will take you to drive to your new place, and what it will cost you in terms of time and gas money. By renting a storage unit that’s on the way to your new home, you can drop things off on moving day, without having to go too far out of your way.


How Will You Get There?

Unexpected moves can lead to a lot of scrambling around, trying to figure out how you’ll get all of your belongings to your new place. Do you need to rent a moving truck, or can you borrow a friend’s pickup? Will you have to make multiple trips in order to get all of your stuff from your old place to your new one? When you rent a unit from us, you can use our free* local move-in truck to transport any belongings that you want to store from your house or apartment to your storage space.

Can You Take Everything With You?

As you’re packing up and getting ready to relocate during the first of the year, it’s important to consider whether or not you can take everything with you to your new home. If you’re moving in with relatives or a roommate, then there might not be enough space for your full-size couch or your flat screen TV. If you can’t fit everything you own into the house or apartment, then self-storage is the next best thing. Instead of trying to find enough space in a spare bedroom or the basement, you can put your things in storage and rest assured that they’re safe and sound.
