4 Tips for Using a Storage Unit to Make Your Move Easier, Flower Mound, Texas

Maybe you’re not able to move into your new place right away, or perhaps you just prefer to take your time packing. Either way, a storage unit can come in handy when you’ve moving, giving you a place to keep your items until you’re ready to move into your new home. With some careful planning and the tips below, a storage unit can reduce stress and eliminate some of the uncertainty of moving.

How to Use a Storage Unit When Moving

1. Determine How Much Space You Need

You’ll need enough room for your furniture, off-season clothes, and recreational equipment, but you don’t want to pay for space you don’t use. For instance, 5-by-5 foot rooms are usually perfect for storing some extra boxes and odds-and-ends, but you’ll probably need a 10-by-10  unit for a single-bedroom apartment.

2. Do You Need Climate Control?

storageSome items, like electronics, photos, and sensitive documents, are susceptible to damage from heat and humidity. If you plan on storing these items for more than a few months, consider renting a unit with climate control.

3. Reserve Your Space Early

You don’t want to try and book a storage unit you were relying on, only to find they’re all occupied. As soon as you know you’ll need one, call around for prices, visit open facilities, and make your reservation right away.

4. Pack What You Don’t Need

When deciding what to put into storage, think about what you’ll need in the coming months and what can safely be put away. Put out-of-season clothes and holiday directions in first, then slowly pack belongings you use more regularly to avoid digging through the storage unit.
