This week, we have some self storage advice for all of you world travelers out there! The thought of seeing the world and experiencing other cultures is enticing and humbling for those that can afford to spare the time and money. Sometimes these trips end up planning out in a way that allow you to be gone for extended amounts of time, anywhere from a few months to a year. The last thing you want to be doing during your time abroad is worrying about your belongings, so why not look into storing your items in a storage unit?
To start, storing your belonging in long-term storage would save you much more money than continuing to pay rent for your home. Think of all of the things you could use that money towards while you travel! Renting a self-storage unit for your things would cost a fraction of what you would be paying to rent your home.
You could also consider subleasing your home to someone during your travel period, so you can return from your trip without worrying about finding a place.
This is the perfect time to consolidate your belongings and get rid of the things you no longer have use for. The smaller the storage unit is, the less you will have the pay; use this as a reason to get rid of that box of old things you keep telling yourself you will used, but never do.
Once this is done, do some research! Look at all of your local self-storage options and find the best rate and condition that fits your storage needs. Often times, you can find deals for committing to renting a storage unit for prolonged periods of time.
Now that you’ve bought your ticket, found your storage unit, and packed your things away, it’s time for you to see the world!
