What Type of Storage Do I Need for My Move?

June 1, 2020 | Moving Guides & Tips

There are several reasons you might need to use storage before, during or after a move. Maybe you’re waiting on a new house to be built or you’re moving into a smaller space. Or maybe you need a little extra room to keep your belongings secure. Whatever type of storage you need for your move, Wheaton has you covered.

Storing some or most of your belongings during a move is a smart investment because it can simplify the already-overwhelming moving process. What type of storage you need depends on your reason for needing it in the first place. Keep reading to learn more about your storage options!

How can a storage unit help with my move?

A storage unit is a great way to reduce your moving day stress because it allows you to:

  • Keep your valuable items safe. By moving your expensive items into a storage unit, they’ll be out of the way on moving day.
  • Ease into your new home. With a storage unit, you can slowly move your items into your new home instead of doing it all at once.
  • Keep your belongings organized. If you have items you don’t want getting mixed up during the move, a storage unit is a great way to keep your things separated.

What type of storage do I need for my move?

There are many types of storage options on the market, so it can be difficult to figure out which one is best for you. Some of your storage options include, but are not limited to:

  • Portable storage is an easy and efficient way to store your items. Choose a date for your storage container to be dropped off, fill it up and then schedule a pick-up!
  • Indoor storage is a space that you rent inside of a storage facility. This is a great option when you require weather protection.
  • Outdoor storage is similar to indoor units, except you will have drive-up ability. This is a good option if you have larger items that are difficult to carry.
  • Specialty storage is a good choice when you have items with specific needs like size and climate control.
