Moving Towards Storage

I have always been one of those people who is concerned about keeping their house as clean as possible, which is probably one of the reasons I started thinking more seriously about using professional storage. I didn't want to have to worry about tripping over things that I didn't use on a daily basis, so I began focusing on making things right. Within a few short months, I was able to rent a storage unit, pack things up, and move them out of my house, and it made a huge difference. This blog is all about moving towards renting a storage unit and sorting things out.

Recommendations To Help You With An Upcoming Townhome Move


Moving your household is usually an inevitable project that you will need to take when you are buying a new home or you are renting a new place. Moving into a townhome can add some different elements to your move as you account for a new floor plan, stairs, and shared walls inside your new home. The following provides you with some recommendations for your upcoming move into a townhome and ensures the planning and execution of the process goes more smoothly.

Take Interior Measurements

The inside of your new townhome is going to have its own dimensions of rooms, hallways, doorways, and entrances. Because not all of your possessions will fit into moving boxes, you will need to consider the sizes of your furniture and other bulky items before you can get them into your new place. 

Take a tape measure to your new townhome before you move so you can measure some of the areas where you will be moving through and into. For example, what size is the living room space where you will be placing your sectional couch? Measure the space before you try to fit a piece of furniture into it so you have a final plan for its placement. And is the turn at the bottom of the basement stairs wide enough to allow you to maneuver the couch that is going in your family room space? If you have an area that is tight with moving your furniture into a new space, have a backup plan to get the furnishings into the space or into another area of the townhome.

Arrange For Movers

A townhome is known for its multiple levels inside the home, which can leave you with several different flights of stairs. If you are completing the move on your own, you may want to consider arranging for help from some additional movers. You can look to acquire help from friends or family members to help you move items or you can hire professional movers. A professional moving team will have the skill and experience along with the necessary tools and equipment to easily move your items into your home and onto each of the floors. 

Make sure you also plan out your moving day beforehand so you know where you can park the moving truck and unload your possessions, for example. Contact the HOA or the property manager to ask about moving truck placement and also if you can leave items outside on your patio, porch, or outside area, such as with an outdoor grill or outdoor furniture. The HOA and management of a townhome community can often have specific regulations about these details with your move.
