The world is getting more tech-driven with each passing year, and we’re now firmly living in the digital era – or, as we like to call it, the “device” age. New devices pop up almost daily, leaving older devices in their wake. As these outdated gadgets become either novelties or nearly obsolete, people have begun to store them at a much higher clip.
Moving? You may have already started your own mental checklist. Stress? Check. Too much stuff? Check. Not enough time? Check. If this sounds like your mindset going into your impending move, you’re not alone. Moving is a big deal, regardless of whether you’re changing apartments in the same town, or uprooting and starting a new life clear across the country. But even the biggest moves don’t have to be bad news. Any move can be simplified with a bit of planning (and a reworked checklist).
In this guide, our moving and storage experts here at Stor-It give you everything you need to know to prepare for your move. We’ve changed up the checklist—no more stress and scrambling. Instead, we’ve organized everything into four distinct time blocks: a month before the move, the week of the move, the day of the move, and the week after the move. Learn the steps you need to succeed at every stage of your move, and check out Idaho’s best self-storage with our team today!

So, you’ve decided to go for it. You’re going to move, and you’re going to go it alone. Well, you might recruit a few friends, but you’re certainly not going to pay for movers.
What you likely will pay for, however, is a moving truck. You probably don’t have a huge truck sitting in your driveway. And even if you own a pickup or a van, you may not want to make multiple trips in it. With a moving truck, all it takes is one round trip.
Like people, cars sometimes need new places to stay. Whether it’s an old beater that needs to beat it out of the garage, a convertible that simply can’t stay on the curb, or an RV that needs to hunker down for the winter, vehicles often have to relocate — for their own benefit and the benefit of their owners. In many cases, these large investments are relocating into storage.
As the year nears its end, the holiday season begins. For many homes and business, this means it’s time to break out the decorations. While fun to set up and enjoy during the holiday season, decorations can be a hassle to pack up and store for the rest of the year if proper storing practices aren’t followed.

There isn’t a single business on Earth without stuff. Even the most cloud-friendly enterprises have infrastructure. The smallest mom-and-pop operations have inventory. And what budding brand doesn’t have merch? Material “stuff” is essential to your company’s day-to-day operations, but not all of it is used every second of every day. With reorganizations and location changes, downsizing and growth periods, buyouts and re-brandings, stuff gets lost in the shuffle. We’re talking literal stuff. Product. Office equipment. You name it. While hopefully not lost for good, it occupies a sort of liminal space. It’s in the way, but it’s too valuable to throw away. For this stuff, your company needs self storage. Need convincing? This is the guide for you. Here are 7 ways your business can benefit from a storage unit.
On the fence about finally biting the bullet and getting a storage unit? The holiday season is one of the best times to pull the trigger on this useful space-saving investment. Winter weather is very harsh in most parts of the country, and even if you can’t afford a climate-controlled storage unit, most regular storage units are superior to sheds, chests, and even garages when it comes to winter storage. For those feeling cramped in their homes or businesses, storage units are far superior (and cheaper) than investing in a larger building. With the holidays now upon us, here are the top 6 reasons to get a storage unit this season.
