There’s nothing more exciting than traveling the world, especially if you’re lucky enough to extend your trip beyond a few weeks to months. Of course, there are a number of things you need to prepare before grabbing your passport and setting off into the sunset. For example, what are you going to do with all of your stuff? Luckily, that’s where we at Nesta Storage shine. With self-storage, you can be sure that your items will be safe and secure while you travel. Here are some things to consider that will help you on your way.      

When you’re heading out for more than your traditional two-week holiday, you may need to make a big decision about your living situation. You have two main options: do you lease it or move out? Regardless of which option you choose, it’s likely you’ll need to clear out some space for the new tenant or subletter. This process may feel stressful at first, but it will help you unload the mental stress you would otherwise be taking on your trip. 

If you’re like us, you’ll have a hard time parting with your well-loved furniture. The good news is that you don’t have to! We have 7 different sized units so keeping your couch and bed frame safe and sound is very possible. 

Next, where are you heading off to? This will inevitably determine what kind of wardrobe you want to take or leave behind. If you’re planning to relax on the beach the whole time, you won’t be needing that winter coat! Organize the clothes you want to keep in labeled cardboard boxes with their specific season. Properly packing and storing your belongings like this will make it easier to find what you need quickly upon your return. Finally, pack up all the off-season items and add them to your storage unit. 

Packing up your life is never easy, but renting a self-storage unit allows you to be flexible if you choose to extend your travels or head home early. 

Enjoy your trip with the peace of mind that your belongings are safe!
