Moving between apartments or houses is stressful, especially if you need to be out of your old home within a short timeframe. You can cut down the time it takes to move out by using self storage units in Concord, which can act as a temporary location for your belongings while you figure out whether to keep or get rid of them.
Temporary storage while you organize
It’s unlikely you’ll keep everything after your move. Even items you think you’ll keep will end up trashed and donated, but you might not realize until you’re halfway through moving. Some people have a “move now, think later” approach in which they don’t really think about what they need until everything’s out of the old house. Though that could work, it’s a lot harder to organize the new home when it’s cluttered with boxes and furniture.
An easier way to move out is to have an in-between spot, or a self-storage unit, where you store items you don’t need immediately in your new home. Extra furniture, toy chests, boxes of books, documents and records, and other non-immediate items can rest here while you set your home up with the necessities. Then when your old home is empty and your new home has the necessary belongings, you can take your time sorting through storage.
Move out in phases
The last thing you should do when moving is rush. You risk throwing away items you actually need, and wasting space in your moving vehicle with useless items. Instead, use a self-storage unit to stretch out your move in phases. You don’t need to move everything into your new home in one day, but you might be required to leave your old home in one day.
To make this easier, you could start moving out early. Put your non-essential items in the self-storage unit in the days leading up to your move out day. Then when it’s time to go, you only have the essentials left to transfer from your old home to your new one. This also frees up space in your moving vehicle for fewer and lighter rides.
Storage units can be rented on a monthly basis, so if you’ll have at least a month to organize your belongings. It’s a decent amount of time to finalize your move.
