Why Mobile Storage Units are Great for College Students

Category : Uncategorized

So it happened! You are finally legally an adult!  You are moving out of your parent’s house!  You are going off to college!  Congratulations!  Of course one thing you learn very early on as an “adult” is that moving is horrible.  Moving is incredibly stressful, difficult, and time consuming.  But what are your other options? Leaving most of your stuff at your mom’s house?  I doubt that would go over well.  Selling or getting rid of your prized possessions?  That sounds horrible.  But not to worry, you do have other options. Have you considered storing your belongings during the school semester?

I know what you are going to say: won’t I still have to rent a moving van and transfer all my stuff to the storage unit by myself?  Well that’s the great thing about mobile storage units.  Basically you call the storage company and order a storage unit.  Then that empty unit is dropped off in front of your house, you load it, and then it gets picked up and taken to a secure warehouse.  No muss no fuss.

Another great thing is that there are a variety of sizes of storage units to choose from.  Don’t have a lot of stuff?  Get a small storage unit.  Have a ton of stuff? Get a large storage unit.

But what about the cost?  Doesn’t it cost a pretty penny to rent a storage unit?  Well on average renting a mobile storage unit is often much cheaper than renting a standard storage unit.  Especially if you only need one for a semester or two.

So there you have it, the many reasons why mobile storage units are a great option for any college student.  So stop stressing about what to do with all your stuff and consider renting one as soon as possible! Call us or make a reservation today. We have a variety of packages to suit your needs and we serve all of the Atlanta Metro Area.

Why Mobile Storage

Category : Uncategorized

Deciding on how to store your personal items can be a very stressful decision. After all, if you’re considering paying to store something, it must be pretty important to you. Mobile or portable storage units are very popular at the moment, and for good reason.

  1. They are a great option if you are planning to move.

Mobile storage units, are well, mobile. Meaning if you have a storage unit and decide to move, you won’t have to unload the unit, pack it up and move it yourself. It can be moved for you. One less thing to worry about during the agony of moving.

  1. They are much cheaper than standard storage units.

Renting a storage unit can get pricey. Mobile storage units are typically much cheaper (sometimes as much as 50% cheaper per foot), and that is always nice.

  1. They just make things simpler.

In the long run it is easier to rent a mobile storage unit than to rent a standard one. In most cases you tell the company what size you want and they deliver it. And when you’re finished they come and pick it up again. Nice and easy.

Well there you have it, a few reasons why mobile storage units are a great option. And here are a few tips for packing your mobile storage unit.

  1. Make sure you get furniture pads. These will keep your furniture and other valuables from being scratched.
  2. Make sure and pack your unit tightly. Making sure to place furniture pads in between items to help avoid shifting while in transit.
  3. Be sure to have rope and a dolly. Don’t strain yourself trying to move heavy items without a furniture dolly. Also, make sure to use rope to tie down anything that might shift during transit.
