If you're in any of the following situations, consider renting a storage unit to make the process go more smoothly.

When You Should Rent a Storage Unit

Bringing a new baby home is one of the most joyous times of your life. However, you may need to get rid of some of your items to make space for the nursery. If you move some of your possessions into storage, they'll stay safe until you have room for them again.

4. Enlisting in the Military
