How to Pack for a Move: 14 Steps. 5 Things to Know About Your First Post-Grad Summer. By Molly Hammond, Storage.com So you’ve decided you need self storage to remove some clutter from your apartment or house, but you also don’t want to spend a fortune each month on your storage unit rental. How can you find an affordable storage option? Well, first, it’s important to understand what affects the price of storage unit rentals. In most cases, there are three aspects of self storage that determine pricing: location, unit size, and amenities. Why Location Matters in Self Storage Costs “Location, location, location” is the phrase every real estate agent uses when explaining why certain apartments, condos, and houses cost more than others, and that’s because location determines everything from ease of access to area security.
It’s no different with self storage. Storage facilities in areas with higher storage demand—like urban areas of large cities where more people are renting storage to compensate for smaller living spaces—often have more expensive rates.

By Molly Hammond, Storage.com Graduating from college marks the first time in a young professional’s life that there’s no prescribed “next step.” You could get married, backpack around Europe for a few months, or interview at every company that’s hiring until you score your first job (and that beautiful full-time salary). The options are endless. For many, however, that next step is relocating to one of the biggest cities in the country. Sometimes, that’s just across the state; other times, it’s a life-changing move to the East Coast or West Coast.
For born-and-bred Midwesterners, this can be a huge adjustment (or a dream-come-true moment). Fortunately, people from the Midwest have some advantages when it comes to being the new fish in the pond, whether that’s in New York City, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, Seattle, or Houston. In Nebraska, they call it being “Nebraska Nice,” and other Midwest states have their own variations. Midwest transplants are basically everyone’s dream roomie. 7 hidden costs of moving in retirement.

How to Acclimate Your Family to a New Country - MovinGal. Moving abroad? An international move can be a great opportunity when you have to go for business, military or mission work, but it can be a tough decision when you have small children. When you were younger and single you’d have jumped at the opportunity to live in an exciting new country, but with a family in tow the thought of relocating your kids causes concern.
Kids are resilient, though, and the numbers reveal that they actually do quite well living abroad. An HSBC Bank International survey revealed that kids living overseas make new friends fairly easily, adjust well to foreign school systems and cultures, are more apt to learn a foreign language and have the advantage of better education. Knowing that your kids are likely to be just fine in a new country helps, but there are things you can do to help them adjust and (almost) seamlessly transition to living abroad.

There are many reasons to need storage; it seems that Middletown is popping up with apartment communities faster than the surrounding areas.
However these apartment communities offer very little in the line of storage. They look great, but in reality an apartment is a far cry from a home. Storage is always an issue. Whether it be your extra household items or having cars or motorcycles and only allowed one possibly two parking spots. And this time of year everybody starts to hunker down like bears, we hibernate in the winter and so do our belongings. Here in Middletown we have become a storage facility of contractors lately. Lets pop back to the keepers of stuff, this is what I fondly call my tenants who rent and just don’t have enough space at home for their belongings.
Talk with you again soon, in the meantime……….. YOUR PARENTS ARE COMING?!? The Art of Moving and Storage. The art of moving and storing, yes it is an art in all reality. Some of us are very good at it and the rest of us just wing it and hope for the best. Any of us who have a long distance move are probably more prepared, I do say probably only because there are the few, like myself, who are better at the last minute. There is a time limit to get things done because if the truck shows up and you’re not ready it’s total mayhem and with or without you that truck is ready to go, and go they will. So preparation is everything. There are boxes to pack and label. And I know from experience that labeling is key to any move. So you start far ahead of time to make sure all you i’s are dotted and all your t’s are crossed. I compare moving and storing to art, it is indeed a form of art work getting things into a particular sized space. Storage space is just that, space.

It feel like we are just getting started at storage station stores for the summer and here it is the end of August and oh yes school is about to start. Well for me at storage station stores in South Toms River and Toms River this has been quite a summer that a lot of difference thing has happen. First all the warm weather here at the storage station stores with all the dew at night made the grass grow faster. Usually when we have hot weather the grass turn brown but oh no not the year. Then you have the weeds witch I know are laughing at me as they grow more faster and higher and everywhere that I did not put weed killer down. Oh yes here at the stores at South Toms River and Toms River we get a lot of windy days .
Here at South Toms River store it seems that we are picked by the wind to have everyone’s trash dropped off here. It just seems that what can go wrong has happen this summer. Celebrate with us :) | Article Collection. Its hot. That is all everyone can talk about, the blazing heat! It keeps most of us inside when it is this hot.
Now can you imagine having to move in such a heat wave? I cannot even imagine it, and I have two tenants doing just that here at Storage Station in Middletown. One tenant is relocating from Middletown to the south central United States, the lone star state of Texas. My Texas bound tenant has the huge dilemma of what to take and what not to. They moved all their important belongings into a ten by fifteen storage unit and have been organizing ever since. The thing is they are not taking any thing that is large, no furniture what so ever, it is less expensive to replace it when they get to their new home come to find out.
