If you have found that you are running out of space to store things at your residence, but you cannot bear to part with any of your prized possessions, it might be time for you to consider renting a storage unit. You can rent one close to your home so that you can have easy access your possessions within their listed hours. Moving your possessions there will free up space in your residence and your possessions will be safe and secure in a locked unit.
One of the main things that make it difficult for people to move their possessions to a storage unit is the lack of cardboard storage boxes to put their smaller possessions in to make it easier to move and store them. It used to be quite easy to simply ask a grocer for left over cardboard boxes from their food shipments, but now the boxes seem to be rarer to come by. Luckily, if you do not have a source for cardboard boxes, you can actually get them from most storage rental facilities if you plan to rent a unit from them. Sometimes there is a minor cost to acquiring the boxes, but you know that the boxes are new and in great condition. This means that you do not have to worry about the bottom falling out and dumping your possessions on the ground when you pick it up. Some storage rental facilities even offer cardboard boxes of various sizes so that it is easier for you to find the perfect fit for your possessions.
Carrying the boxes out of your residence or into the storage unit might be difficult if you happen to have possessions that cause the cardboard boxes to weigh a lot. Most storage rental facilities also have a solution for that problem. They can rent you a hand truck which is also referred to as a two-wheeler or dolly. You can stack several of your cardboard boxes on the hand truck and wheel them to your vehicle. Many of the storage rental facilities also have small moving trucks that can be rented for the day. If you decide to rent one of the trucks, you can actually wheel your boxes up a ramp into the truck and finish your move quickly and easily.
When you call various storage rental facilities to decide which one you want to use, you should be sure to ask them about what they have to offer that can help make moving your possessions there as simple as possible.
