How a temporary self-storage unit can save your day

See also

Whether it’s an unexpected tenant’s move-out or maybe just a great pre-season sale on landscaping materials, some times what you really need are some extra square feet. You don’t have time to build an addition and the costs would be unrealistic anyhow. Enter the self-storage unit you can rent by the month or year.

There are probably no less than a hundred reasons you might find yourself needing more square feet, but in probably 90% of them, a temporary storage space can save the day. So where do you go to find the perfect temporary storage site? The Yellow Pages? How old school.

Luckily there’s an app for that, or well…at least a website. Check out SpareFoot.com. Type in your Zip Code and out spits a list of the storage spaces closest to you. Prices – sizes – contact info – everything you need to make an immediate decision.

They’ve even got extra resources on their site to help with moving:

- The Top 5 Moving Mistakes

- How to Organize Your Move in Six Steps

- Five Great Products and Services for Getting Organized at Home

- How to Properly Store the U.S. Flag (great info in advance of July 4)

- Nine Tips for Finding Pet-Friendly Housing

If you’re one of the 36 million Americans that will move each year, this could be a great site for you as well.
