Setting Up the Perfect Plan: How Moving and Storage Can Work Together
Are you dreading the day of your big move more than you’re anticipating it? Is there any way to make it easier on yourself?
Having a moving checklist is the first place to start. Getting a first-day moving bag together will help you have all of the essentials at your fingertips.
There’s one big thing you can do to make moving even easier—rent a storage space. We’ll show you how moving and storage can work together to make the entire process a breeze.
Sell Your Home Faster
If you’re trying to sell your home, putting a few things in storage is a smart idea. New home buyers need to imagine themselves in your home, and your stuff can get in the way of that.
Clear out space and show potential buyers they have room to grow in your home. Using a storage service allows you to create that space and sell your home quicker.
If you’re eager to get into your new place or just don’t want to do everything all at once, utilizing a storage space can buy you time. You can get a head start by moving things you use less frequently into storage.
Start the decluttering and packing process as soon as you know that you are moving. By putting your stuff away early, you’ll be ready to go when you can move into your new home. Plus, you can get an idea of what you need to purge from your home so that you don’t move all of your clutter to your new place.
Make Your Move in Stages
A storage space gives you a moment to pause before you move all the way in. By moving into your home in stages, you can plan the exact placement of everything the right way.
Imagining where you’re going to put all of your furniture is one thing, putting them in the rooms is another. Get it right by moving in gradually instead of all at once.
Protect Your Valuables
Some things are too delicate to be loaded onto the moving truck with everything else. You don’t want to risk damaging precious heirlooms, valuable art, or sentimental pieces during a big move.
Use storage to put the most important and fragile things out of the way until later. Don’t risk breaking or damaging your valuables.
We talked about how starting your move early and storing unused items temporarily can help you declutter. Stashing stuff in storage can give you a much-needed perspective on your valuables.
After you move in, see if you’re in a rush to get everything out of storage. You might find that you can do without some of the items you’ve put away.
