After years of saving and searching, you’ve bought your dream home. Now you’re settling in and dealing with a new set of challenges that comes with home ownership. 

Use Self Storage To Stay Organized

One challenge you might be facing as you settle into your dream home is staying organized. 

With boxes to pack and then unpack, possible renovations being done to every corner of the home, new furniture, and more, you may have more stuff than you know what to do with. 

Urban Self Storage is one helpful resource you have at your disposal. We offer a variety of sizes of self storage units that can store everything from your grandma’s armoire you can’t part with to your husband’s collection of Star Wars memorabilia that doesn’t fit your home’s aesthetic.

Check out our size guide to help you pick a unit that might be right for you.

Before you even move into your dream home, you may find our storage units to be the right move for you.

What To Store in a Storage Unit

If you have ever moved before, you know that those boxes tend to stack up both figuratively and literally. You might initially think you don’t have that much to move, but once you get packing, you realize that you have more than you thought. It can be hard to figure out which of those boxes and items can go into storage for a while. Here are some items to consider stashing away until the right time.

Storing Seasonal Items

Store your seasonal decorations and belongings, such as a Christmas tree or summer camping equipment, in our facilities so you have less to move between your old residence and your new dream home. You can also keep these items rotating. When you are getting out those summer shorts and tank tops, you can start stashing away those heavy coats you won’t need as much in July. 

Extra Furniture 

If moving to your dream home involves downsizing, store big items such as bed frames, guest room mattresses, or bikes in a storage unit. If you are storing furniture, make sure you get mattress covers, blankets, or plastic wrap to keep everything nice and clean for when you do want to use it again. At Urban Self Storage, we have all these items and other moving resources available for purchase to help make your storage experience even more simple.

Temporary Storage

Another way to utilize self storage units during a big move is to temporarily store all your belongings (besides the essentials) while you move into your new space. 

Take time to complete renovations and live relatively bare bones until your home is perfect and you’re ready to move in completely.
