At EZ Storage® in Philadelphia, we know that people move for all types of reasons. We also know that you’re not always the one who is moving, but the relocation affects you nonetheless. If you or someone in your house is planning to move in the near future, then a self-storage unit could be the perfect solution for anything that isn’t making or trip or that will be picked up at a later date.

Our storage centers across the greater metro area offer a variety of unit sizes, and the staff members and resident managers at each location are more than happy to help you find the right fit. Visit one today to get started!

You’re Moving Soon

This moving scenario affects you the most, since you’re the one who is relocating. Even if it’s just you who’s moving, it’s important to take stock of what you’re going to take with you and how much time and effort it’s going to require of you. If you have boxes or furniture that you want to keep, but that can’t be moved into your new place right away, then a storage space can be a great choice.

With our month-to-month lease options, you can rent a unit for the time you need. You may need to store some things before your move, and then once you’re settled into your new place, you can come get everything.

The Kids Are Moving Out

This scenario is a bittersweet one for parents, since they want to see their kids grow and succeed, but they may not be ready for the kids to move out on their own. However, a time will likely come when your kids are ready to move out, and even though you may not want them to go, you’re excited about the possibilities that are ahead of them.

The one thing you may not be as excited about is the stuff your kids may have to leave behind. If they’re headed off to college or to another city to start a job, then there are likely some things they won’t be able to take with them. You have plans to turn their bedroom into a home gym, an office, or a man cave, and that means the furniture needs to go somewhere else. Putting it into storage will get it out of the house, and it will keep the items protected, should your child want to come get them at some point in the future.

A Relative Is Moving in With You

If you have aging parents or other relatives nearby who are coming to live with you, then you want to make sure that they have the space they need. You may have a “mother-in-law” apartment in your house, with a separate entrance and it’s own bathroom and kitchen, or you may simply have a spare bedroom where a relative can stay for a few months.

Whenever someone moves in, they’ll inevitably bring some, if not all, of their personal belongings with them. Perhaps they’ve had to move out of a house they lived in for several decades, and they likely amassed quite a few belongings in that time. Before they move into your house, it can be good to go through their things with them and decide what could be stored, what could be donated or tossed, and what they should bring with them. Only do this if and when you relative is willing, since the change of having to move can be overwhelming, especially for those of an older age.
