Storage During Your Transition

Moving to a new city can be an exciting and challenging experience, and getting settled can take some time, especially if you moved across the country. If you’ve recently relocated to the Pittsburgh area and are staying with friends or family while you look for a place to live, you might need a safe space to store your belongings. You packed the essentials in your suitcases, but larger items such as your furniture can’t stay in the moving truck. At EZ Storage®, we can provide short-term solutions for your belongings until you find a place to live and have room for everything.

Acclimating to Your New Surroundings

dreamstime_xxl_34162765Having just arrived in the city, you need some time to acclimate and to get to know the lay of the land. Staying with friends or relatives can be a positive, since they know the area and can help you learn more about the various neighborhoods, job opportunities, and places to live. You may have moved to start a new job, and the apartment your company helped you find won’t be ready for a few weeks. While you could’ve waited and moved when it was ready, you wanted to get a head start on discovering what the city has to offer and how you’ll feel living here. Instead of worrying about the safety of your belongings, you can place them in a secure storage unit and spend your time focusing on finding a job or exploring the city.

Picking the Right Unit Size

If you moved from across the country, where you lived in a two-bedroom apartment, but you’re moving into a one-bedroom apartment, you may need to store some items for the foreseeable future. Our storage locations have a great selection of storage unit sizes ranging from 25 square feet to 300 square feet. A 10’x10’ unit is approximately the size of a small bedroom, and if you have a bed, dresser, couch, and other furniture, that unit size should suffice. If you have larger items, such as a piano, it may be better to rent a 10’x15’ or 10’x20’ unit. Our staff will gladly help you pick the unit that best fits your needs.

Making Your Transition Easier

Relocating to a new city can be exciting, but it can also be stressful, and if you’re constantly worrying about your belongings, you can’t be as focused on finding a job or a place to live. You know you can’t stay with your friends or family forever, and their basement only has so much space for your things. At EZ Storage®, we want to make your transition as easy as possible, and if you need a secure storage unit, we’re here to help. Each one of our metro area storage locations has standard and climate-controlled units, so if you have items that need to be stored at a certain temperature, we can keep them protected.
