Renting a new place can be exciting, especially if you’re moving out on your own for the first time. Even if you’ve been renting for several years, moving to a new house or apartment can put you closer to work, closer to family, and in a neighborhood that you’ve wanted to live in for a long time.

At EZ Storage® in Pittsburgh, we’re here to help you find the perfect self-storage unit. If you’re moving in the near future and need to store some things, or you need a place to keep some items safe after you’ve moved in, then we can provide the ideal spot. With locations all across the greater metro area, you can find a unit that’s close to home!


Moving to a Smaller Place

If you’re moving out on your own for the first time, and you plan on renting by yourself, then you’re likely going to live in a smaller place. This might be a studio or one-bedroom apartment, which means that you won’t have as much space as you did at your parents’ house. You can always leave some things behind, but for those items that you want to keep close, a self-storage space can be a good option.

You’ll want to take the necessities such as clothes and furniture with you, but if you have boxes of personal belongings that you want to keep safe, then storage can provide the protection you need. With a small apartment or condo, you likely won’t have too many closets or storage spaces, which means that if you keep boxes in your place, they’ll be stacked in the corner or pushed under the bed. Renting a storage unit can help keep your new place clear of clutter, and your belongings will be safe and sound for as long as you need.

Moving to a Bigger Place

Perhaps you’ve been saving up for several months, or you changed jobs and increased your monthly income, and now you’re ready to move to a bigger apartment. You know where you want to move, and the date is quickly approaching. With a new, bigger residence, you may want to buy new furniture, which means you’ll have to store your old furniture until you can sell it or give it away. With large storage spaces, we can provide the right spot for your old couches, chairs, and tables.

Moving in With Roommates

While you may have your eye on a bigger apartment, you know that the monthly rent will be too much for you alone. Looking for a roommate can be the best way to offset the cost of renting a two- to three-bedroom apartment, but it also means that you’ll have to share the space with someone else. You may have to put some things into storage so that there’s plenty of room for your roommate’s stuff. They can add their own belongings to the unit, too, and you can split the cost of storage.

Renting a new place can be exciting, but it can also be stressful. If you’re worried about where you’re going to store some of your things, then come to EZ Storage® today.
