Storage Options for Digital Nomads
If you’re a “digital nomad,” or someone who works remotely from all around the world, then you’re likely used to not being in the same place for very long. You make your living from your laptop, and you have the flexibility to go where you want, when you want. While you may not have a permanent residence, you do have some earthly possessions that you want to keep safe while you travel. At EZ Storage® in St. Louis, we can help you find the perfect self-storage unit for anything that you need to store.
Traveling the Country
For many digital nomads, they love traveling the country and seeing new things. They’re able to travel to different states, see friends and family, all while making an income. For you, being able to work remotely has afforded you the opportunity to not have to worry about renting or owning a home, but you still have things such as clothing and furniture that you want to keep, just in case you decide to settle down at some point in the future. Renting a small storage unit can be the perfect alternative to keeping your things at a friend’s or relative’s house.
Having a job that lets you work remotely can also provide you with the opportunity to travel overseas. Your company might have offices in Europe or Asia, and even though you’ll be working while you travel, you’ll also be able to visit international clients and meet with fellow employees. When it comes to storage, you can pay your bill from anywhere in the world, and you can feel confident that your belongings are safe and sound. While you’re overseas, you can designate an emergency contact who can access your storage unit, should you need something out of it that your contact can ship to you.
A Flexible Schedule
Working while you travel lets you have a flexible schedule, both in your daily life and throughout the weeks and months. If you work for an international company, then you might keep “office hours” that align with London or Shanghai. You may only work three to four days a week, and the other days are left for sightseeing and exploring.
As for your weekly and monthly schedules, you might have the flexibility to stay in one location for an extended period of time, or move on to somewhere new after a week or so. Unless you have scheduled meetings with clients or coworkers, you can pretty much decide where you want to be and when.
One downside to a flexible and tentative schedule is that you might not be sure when you’ll be back “home” to get things out of storage. At EZ Storage®, we offer storage units on a monthly basis, which means you can rent for as long as you need. If you know you’ll be traveling and working for the next year, then you can rent month by month for that period of time.
