Selling Your Excess Stuff May Not Be Possible
While you may plan on selling your old baseball cards, extra lawn equipment or other items that you don’t want to take with you, there may not be a market for it. If you are moving on short notice, it may not be possible to schedule a garage sale. Therefore, you may have no choice but to store your things until they can be sold in an orderly fashion.
You Don’t Want to Rush the Sale of Valuable Items
If you planned on selling a car or some other valuable item to help paying moving or additional living expenses, you want to get full market value. However, you can’t always get full market value if you come across as desperate. Therefore, putting items in storage until you can find the right buyer may be beneficial in the long run.
Don’t Overthink the Moving Process
There may be items that you haven’t made a decision on as it relates to whether you want to keep or discard them. By getting a storage unit, you can keep the moving process moving along smoothly and make the hard decisions after you have gotten settled. In many cases, it is easier to make a rational decision about an item when you aren’t stressed or simply trying to clear out before your lease expires.
Your New Place May Be Smaller
Your new home or apartment may be smaller than the place you currently call home. By putting items in storage, you can keep your new place organized and free from as much clutter as possible. This means that you don’t need to get rid of your car, your golf clubs that you don’t use often or anything else that you have a connection to just because there isn’t anywhere to keep them at home.
Moving can be a difficult process no matter how much help you have. You can make the process easier by getting a storage unit and keeping your things there temporarily. Doing so means that you don’t have to get rid of the things that you may need or want later even if you move into a smaller home or apartment.
