When some people move, they usually do it themselves. A do-it-yourself (DIY) move usually involves renting a small truck or moving van, getting your buddies to help load everything, and driving the truck to your new apartment. In most cases, a local move can take a day or two due to the short-term moving truck rental contracts. Interstate moves can certainly take longer.
Portable storage units have changed the way young people relocate. This type of DIY move has made things a lot easier and less nerve-wracking. Portable storage units are ideal for small apartment moves. In fact, there are plenty of companies out there that offer portable storage units for rent in a variety of prices and sizes.
The moving and storage company will deliver the portable storage unit to your home, where it will remain parked for the duration of your packing. You can take your time loading it up since the typical rental period is a month..of course each company varies, so do your homework. This way, there’s no rush. And when you’re done packing it up, the moving company can come, pick it up and transport it to your new apartment.
Oh, and we’ve given it some thought and realized that portable storage units are also ideal for moving between college semesters. Sometimes, you have a few weeks or months between classes and may not want to move all of your stuff home. If this is the case, you can have the moving company store the portable unit until you are ready to move into your new place.
