Moving Out After A Breakup? Situations Where You Would Need A Storage Unit Published at 23 February, 2021 - 12:43 pm by Extraspace Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. As much as we want to celebrate this special day, we cannot turn away from the fact that some couples around the world have unfortunately decided to end things just before Valentine’s season. If you belong to this population and are stuck in a situation where you have to move out, here are three situations where you would need a storage unit. Situation 1: When Only One Of You Has To Move Out When you live together with your ex-partner in a shared space, both of you usually leave your current home and divide your belongings. The process is simple- you move out and take your belongings with you, and your ex-partner does the same. Unfortunately, this type of situation does not happen to everyone. At times, it’s either you or your ex-partner who moves out. We all know how difficult it is to move on from a breakup, especially when you have things that remind you of the relationship. If you’re the one who has to move out, it will be better to have a storage unit to keep your belongings while you find a new place. While it is possible to leave your things behind, it may not work for either of you. Situation 2: When You Decide To Stay At A Transient Many ex-couples each manage to have time to find a new place to live in and sort out their belongings before moving out. However, in situations wherein both of you have to move out quickly. For instance, if you have managed to sell your home ahead of time. Your breakup can also coincide with the end of your rental contract. In this situation, both of you may find yourselves in transient accommodation- which could be your family or friend’s home. By renting out a storage unit, you don’t have to worry about having a safe space to keep your belongings. Storage facilities offer flexible payment options for either short or long-term storage. Situation 3: When You Need The Time And Space To Think Breakups take an emotional toll on you. As you need time and space to think, sorting out your belongings can be a daunting experience. When you need freedom and clarity, owning a storage space might help you. When both of you are not in the headspace to divide your shared belongings, renting out a storage space to keep them will give you space and time that you need to think and reflect.
