Summer is just around the corner, and even though this spring has been a time of uncertainty for many people, you’re looking forward to the beginning of a new season. Perhaps you’ve been thinking about finding a new apartment, and you’ve decided that summer will be the perfect time to move. At EZ Storage® in Detroit, we can help you find a self-storage unit that meets your needs and fits your budget. You might be looking for a new place after graduating from college, as you start a new career, or while you pursue a new relationship. No matter why you’re moving, our team is here to help.

Graduating From College

College graduation is a big milestone in a person’s life. You’ve worked hard over the past four years to get your degree, and now you’re ready to see what the world has to offer. If you’ve been living in the dorms or in an apartment close to campus that you share with two or three roommates, you’re probably ready to find a new place to live.

Your first apartment after college is likely going to be a small one, since your budget is probably limited. You may still have to live with roommates in order to afford an apartment, which means you’ll have to be selective with what you bring. You might need to store furniture, extra boxes, and other belongings so that there’s room for everyone and everything each person needs in the apartment.

Starting a New Career

Perhaps you’ve been working for several years, and you’re ready for a change. You might have had retail or service industry jobs, but now you’re ready to start a career. You’ve landed the job you’ve always wanted, but the office or location is on the other side of the city. Moving to a new apartment can put you closer to work, which cuts down on your commute, but it can also put you closer to those you work with, making it easier to create new friendships.

When relocating for a new job, it can be beneficial to ask your new company if they cover any employee moving expenses. If so, you can save on the costs associated with moving to a new apartment, which can help with paying your first and last months’ rent, as well as your security deposit. If you need to rent a storage unit before, during, or after your move, you’ll be able to afford that as well!

A New Relationship

People move to new apartments for all kinds of reasons, but one of the more prevalent is because of a relationship. You might want to be closer to your special someone, or you and your partner may be moving in together. Whatever the case may be, finding a new place can make it easier to pursue the relationship and keep you and your significant other in close proximity.

If you’re moving in together, it can be exciting to look at apartments together, perhaps in a part of the city in which you’ve both always wanted to live. It’s important to keep in mind, however, that you and your partner will have to be selective about what you both bring into the apartment, just as if you were moving in with a roommate. One viable solution is to rent a storage unit together, splitting the cost and cutting down on the amount of stuff that will be moved into your new apartment.
