Storage facilities are becoming more and more common, and are quickly becoming a popular option for people who are looking for a place to store their belongings, either temporarily or for the long-term. When you are moving, especially a long distance move, you may need a storage facility in the area where you are moving to store some of your belongings while you wait for your shipment to arrive, while you wait to move into your new home, or just to keep as an extra storage space for belongings that may not fit in your new home.

While it's difficult to say for certain whether there is a storage company at your specific destination since we don't have enough information about your move, there is a good chance that you will find a suitable storage facility somewhere in the relative vicinity of where you are moving.

To make sure that there will be a facility available to you, there are several ways in which you can check. For starters, you can visit the self storage page here at Once you have arrived at this page, you'll notice a box at the top asking you for some basic information like your moving service that you require (self storage, in this case) and your zip code (enter the zip code of the place you will be moving to). When you've filled out that information, click the Get Free Moving Quotes button below it and you will be given free estimates for self storage facilities in the area you'll be moving to.

The cost of renting storage space at a storage facility will usually vary depending on how long you plan on storing your belongings there and how big of a space you'll need. Storage units typically come in a variety of sizes ranging anywhere from 5x10 feet to 10x30 feet, and the size you need will be based on what kind of things you'll be storing in there.
