People need extra storage for many reasons. Some people are moving to a new home that hasn’t closed yet, but, their old home has already sold. They’ll have to store their possessions until the purchase of their new home has gone through. Moving and storage companies offer both services. They have rental trucks available to help with moving, starting from a one or two room truck all the way to a seven room truck. They have boxes and other moving supplies available for purchase to make a move much easier.


There are small and large boxes suitable for packing knick-knacks, glasses, dishes, coffee pots, photos, bed clothes and other items. Moving companies also have plastic bags, bubble wrap, various tapes and boxes to make your move much easier and quicker. Ask the company you talk to about any money-saving discounts they have available for the month. Log onto and read about one company that has quite a few climate controlled Self Storage units available right now.

There are also other companies in the area that have storage units for rent. Most of them offer services for customers to choose one and pay the rent online. They offer extra help by putting size guides on their websites. After a person makes their move to a home, they’ll still need storage space for all the extras they may not want to unpack immediately. If clients have televisions, computers, printers and other electronic equipment, they should always choose a Self Storage company that offers climate control units to avoid dampness during weather changes.

If you need to store everything, you’ll have to pick the right size unit that can handle it. For instance, if your old home was four or five bedrooms, your best choice would be a 10? x 30? unit to be sure everything will fit in it properly. An average bedroom would call for a 10? x 10? size to hold a smaller number of belongings. Storage companies have websites that state very clearly what they offer. Whether you’re moving and want to rent a moving truck or you need to put your belongings in a safe place until your home is ready, leasing a storage unit is the right way to go.
