How to Save Time On Moving Day With Storage Pre-Rental

If you think of all the things you need to get done on Moving Day, it doesn’t take much to realize that one of the biggest challenges is saving time. After all, you need to finish up any last-minute packing, and then make umpteen trips back and forth to load the truck, which could take up most of your day. Worse, if you’ve rented a truck, you’re also under pressure to get it back to the vehicle lot on time to avoid extra charges. Finally – perhaps even more importantly – you just want to get it all over with as soon as possible, so you can enjoy the rest of your precious day off. This means you really don’t have time to waste. It’s also why pre-renting a storage unit might be the best thing you can do before the Big Move actually happens.

Advantages of Pre-Renting Your Storage Unit

Naturally, you want to make your moving day a breeze, and you want to be economical about it, too. That means being able to move into your storage unit in a flash. No waiting around. Just a storage unit that’s all ready to go, right when you are.

So, when limited time is one of your biggest concerns, choosing to pre-rent is a great option to make your moving day just that much easier. You can reduce the amount of time you spend moving into storage, by completing most of the storage rental steps in advance. Here are the key benefits:

  • Your lease agreement is already signed and out of the way
  • Your storage rental account is already set up
  • You’ve already paid for your first month’s rent
  • You’ve had the opportunity to purchase any additional supplies and packing materials to make your move easier

Once you’ve checked these points off the list, you’re all set to move in!

How Pre-Renting Works

For up to 21 days in advance of your move-in date, you can rent your storage unit ahead of time. With the pre-rental advantage, you’ll have:

  • Nothing left to pay
  • Nothing you need to buy
  • No paperwork left to do
  • You can move right in.

On the day when you’re ready to move your items into storage, all you’ll need to do is drop by the property office to activate your rental. Just show us your photo ID, and with a few simple mouse clicks, we’ll give you a live personal access code. And presto, your new storage unit is good to go!
