We think that we have a way to reduce your stress levels. When you’re making your next big move, why not make use of short term self storage options? At our self storage facility we make it easy to store your things for as much or little time as you need. Here’s a look at how short term self storage can help you in your move.

Prepare for Last Minute Changes

One of the biggest stresses about moving is how many variables there can be. One to keep in mind is your move-in date. It’s not unheard of for that to change due to circumstances beyond the control of you, your landlord, or realtor. If there’s work being done on your new home, that could also end up taking longer than expected A last minute issue with your new home could delay your move, and having storage for your items can at least assure you that one thing is being taken care of. Even if something changes, you know where your belongings are and you’ll easily be able to retrieve them for your move.


Sometimes your move-in day isn’t exactly convenient. If you’re moving on the first of the month, that may fall during a weekday when you’re busy. Maybe you think it’ll be a good idea to get most of your stuff into a moving truck the weekend before to ensure that your ready for your move. Unfortunately, just leaving a moving truck in your driveway could be a big flashing invitation for thieves. If you put your things into storage, they’ll be much more secure. Our self storage facility has features like video surveillance and a need for digital access codes. You’ll know that your belongings are in good hands for the short time you need to store them.


In most cases, we can offer you a month to month lease for our storage units. That means that whether you need the unit for a month or require a more long-term solution, we’ve got you covered. You don’t want to be stuck with a storage solution that you end up not needing, paying for storage space you don’t need. On the other hand, after your move you might realize that you could actually use a storage unit for just some of your things. We can show you to a smaller unit that better fits your needs and you won’t have to worry about a lease that’s costly to break.


Our storage solutions are also flexible because it’s always easy to access your things. With twenty-four hour access, you’ll be able to visit and retrieve your belongings as soon as your move is actually going forward. At every stage of your move, a short term storage solution from Elite Self Storage is always a secure and convenient option.
