At Elite Self Storage, we know just how helpful a storage unit can be. Most people use them to cut down on clutter in their own homes or keep them as storage for seasonal items, but there’s one great use for a storage unit that you may not have thought of. A storage unit can be incredibly helpful when you move and it can make being between homes far less stressful.
One great reason to choose our self-storage facility is that we have all of the packing supplies that you need to protect your items in transit. We have boxes of all different sizes, packing tape, and protective items like bubble wrap and foam peanuts. We also offer furniture covers, tie-down straps, and moving blankets that can keep everything in top shape on moving day.
When you have a storage unit you can work at your own pace. Pack up some items early and put them away in your unit, so they’re ready to go to your new home on move-in day. You don’t have to rush to get everything packed and ready to go on the day that one lease ends and another begins.
This extra time and storage space also gives you time to get more organized. You can put similar items together and label everything properly. On moving day you just load up everything you need right from your storage unit, and we have to note that many of our units offer convenient drive-up access for a moving truck.
If there is a gap between when you move out of your old place and when you can move into your new one, you need a secure place to store your belongings. A moving truck is only so secure, and while you might think it’s safe to park in someone’s driveway it could end up being a beacon that attracts thieves. Instead store your belongings in a locked unit at our facility, where we monitor the premises all day and night.
Having a storage unit available to you during your move can also help you declutter. With more time on your hands, you might notice that there are some items that you don’t really need when you’re packing things up to put away in storage. Then you can simply sell or donate unwanted items at your leisure.
Clearly a storage unit can make moving less stressful, but it’s even more valuable for people who are moving to a smaller home. If you’re “downsizing”, a storage unit ensures that you don’t have to find a location for all of your items in a smaller home. There’s no reason to pack your new home with as many items as possible if you have a secure storage unit to fall back on.
Whether you’re looking for moving supplies and packing materials, or you just need some extra room and space to plan your move, our self-storage facility in Sioux City, IA can help. We look forward to helping you and making your move less stressful!
