Living in an apartment or shared space with one of your friends can be fun until it isn't and you want to escape the situation. If you are looking to get out of your living arrangement as quickly as you can, but you aren't sure what to do with all of your stuff, you need to find a storage unit fast.
You don't want to leave your stuff behind and then have to go back and get it after you have moved out or have to fight over the stuff that is yours. Here are some of the things you can do to get a unit quickly.
Right away you want to get costs on storage units by calling around. Ask the following questions to get answers fast:
You need to decide what you can afford and what size of unit you will need to have when you are ready to show up and sign a lease.
If you don't have a lot of things, you want to make sure that you aren't paying for a full-sized unit. You don't need enough space to store an RV — you just need enough to store your things in a dry and secure area until you have a new location for them. Talk with each facility to see what type of mini options they have available.
There may be an insurance option that you can get that is a slight increase in the monthly price on the lease. If not, you should consider getting your own insurance coverage for the unit, just to make sure that your items are protected and that you can use your items when you are ready.
If you are in a hurry to get your items out of your living space because you are ready to split from your roommate, but you aren't sure where you are going to go and you don't want to leave your stuff, you will want to go and get a small storage unit. The money that you will spend on the storage unit won't be as much as replacing all of your items, and then you will have everything that you need when you find a new place to live.
