All of us at one point in our lives are going to be faced with moving from one home to another. During this time of transition it is sometimes hard to know what to do with all of our “stuff”. If you are the average person, you have way too much stuff that you do not need or use on a daily basis. You can have a giant yard sale before you move, but this can be very stressful because people typically do not want to pay much for your treasured items. A better choice for you during your move may be using a public storage company to keep all of your belongings safe and secure. This way you will not have to take the time to sort all of your items and decide what is important and what you want to keep or get rid of.

Public storage is a great option during a move because it can help to alleviate a lot of unnecessary packing. If you choose to give public storage a try, all you will need to do is load your truck up with your belongings and take them to your nearest storage center. Be sure to label all your boxes well so that you will have an easy time figuring out what is what, once you decide to take your items out of storage. You will have to pay a monthly fee, but if you are trying to get through your move with the least amount of stress possible, you will not mind the small monthly fee.

Public storage is also great because you can rest assured that your belongings are going to be safe and kept in a clean environment where they will not suffer any damage. Sometimes people will fill their garage in their new home with all the stuff they don’t know where to put, but this is a good way of getting your items ruined by the weather. Many public storage units are climate controlled and therefore are a good choice for things you want to keep in good shape. You can rent units that are not climate controlled as well if that is a feature you do not think you will need.

Some storage companies have insurance you can purchase to further protect your belongings. If the items you will be placing in the unit are of great value, it is a good idea to go ahead and pay a bit extra for the insurance to make sure your beloved items can be replaced if they are ever stolen. It is not likely that your items will be stolen while in public storage but it is better to be safe than sorry.
