  1. Are you moving to a new home?

Did you move out of your home before you have your next home available to move into? Are you upgrading or downsizing your home? A storage unit can help you ease the transition - no matter the situation. You can move things out slowly and unpack at your own pace. Downsizing to a smaller home means you need to downsize your stuff.  When you use a storage unit, you can take your time unpacking, organizing your treasures, and deciding what to keep. Maybe you've decided it makes financial sense to downsize into a smaller place AND rent a storage unit for the extra things that don't fit, but that you still want to keep. If you need a place to keep things while you rent, buy, or organize your new house... you might need to rent a storage unit.
