There are many different reasons to use a storage unit, whether you are moving or not. If you are planning a big move, there are a few reasons why a storage unit can become a lifesaver. Here are few to consider:
- Staging your house to sell – If you are going to be putting your home on the market, getting rid of excess items can make your home look bigger and more enticing. Clearing out closets is a good place to start so that potential buyers won’t think the closets are too tiny — the same holds true for kitchen cupboards. Too much furniture can also make your home look small.
- A place for items to be sold – If you have items you plan on selling, it can be easier to hold a sale at a storage unit because it keeps everyone from finding out your address. It also prevents confusion as to what is for sale and what isn’t. In addition, if you have moved everything you won’t be moving to a storage facility, it will be easier for a mover to come and give you a reliable estimate for your move.
- Gap of time – It usually happens that your home will sell before you can move into your new one. This leaves you wondering where to put your furniture and other belongings. If this is only a few days, your moving company can usually store your things. If you think this may be the case, look for a mover that also owns a storage facility.
