Who’s Going to Help You Move?

When it comes time to move to a new place, you might have a list of people you’re going to call or ask to help you. These people may have offered their services in the past, or they may owe you because you helped them move the last time they relocated to a new house or apartment. Whatever the case may be, it’s a good idea to have help for your move. At EZ Storage®, we can help you find a self-storage unit in Philadelphia that will keep those extra belongings safe while you transition to a new residence.

Family Members

The first group of people you may turn to when you’re planning move may be your family members. Relatives are often willing to help, and if your parents or siblings are nearby, you can often get them to help, even if you have to promise to help them move the next time they relocate. If you have aunts, uncles, or cousins in Philly, then they may be willing to come by and help you carry a few boxes. One perk of having family help you is that you often don’t have to pay them, at least not with monetary compensation. Promises of pizza and soda (or beer) is often enough to get relatives to show up on moving day.

Friends and Co-Workers

dreamstime_xxl_34163193 (1)You likely have a group of friends that you’ve been close with for several years, and everyone is ready to pitch in when a member of the group is planning to move. Calling upon your friends can be the easiest way to get some free labor, whether you’re moving to a new apartment, or taking some furniture to your storage unit.

Co-workers may also be willing to help you move, especially if you’re relocating to be closer to work. You might be moving into the same building or neighborhood as a co-worker, and having them there to help can be a great way to build a relationship with a fellow employee. As with your friends and family, you may need to offer some incentive or compensation to get people interested in helping you.

Professional Movers

If you’re moving a large household, then it can be a good idea to hire professional movers to handle the relocation. You might not have the time and energy to pack everything, and asking friends or relatives to help with a move that involves five or six people and three to four bedrooms, plus a kitchen, bathroom, and living room, could be a bit much. A professional moving company can handle all of the logistics, and you can focus on getting yourself and your family to your new place.

At EZ Storage®, we’re here to help make your move easier by providing affordable self-storage solutions for those belongings that don’t fit in your new home, or that you don’t want to move in until you’ve made some updates and renovations. If you’re going to put things into storage, then be sure to ask about our free* local move-in truck. Instead of asking a friend to bring a pickup or a trailer, you can use our truck and transport all of your large items to your storage unit in one or two trips.

We have several locations across the greater Philadelphia area, and we know you’ll be able to find a facility near your current home or your new residence. If you have questions about our storage units, then you can speak with a resident manager or a staff member, who will gladly provide the answers you need.

We look forward to meeting you!
