Tips for a Moving Container MoveAbout a year ago, my husband and I packed up all of our belongings and moved from St. Louis to our current apartment in Chicago.  We rented a PODS container and we used HireAHelper for the “muscle” portion of our move. I’m not saying it was a good time, because is moving ever really fun? But it actually wasn’t too incredibly painful, and we both lived to tell the tale.

Picture this. Your lease is up on your apartment, and you’re getting the boot next month. But, you have no idea where you’re going to live next and want to spend some time finding the perfect new home. So you turn to your friends, your family, or even a local hotel for a place to stay during this “in-between homes” time.

How Self-Storage Can Impact Your Life and the Community

I began the process of relocating from Texas to Decatur, Georgia with my husband last year. Attempting to pack the many items that we owned, I realized that I had two options – sell the excess stuff or store it. I went online in search of a storage facility located near our new place and decided to go with StoragePost.

I think it’s important to choose a storage facility where you feel comfortable visiting. The aspects that ultimately influenced my decision were the location, amount of security, and the climate-controlled conditions. If you’re anything like me, you may also be curious to know which companies give a portion of their profits to charity. After searching online, I came across details of the community events that StoragePost takes part in.
