Moving to a new home can be very exciting – after all, it’s a brand new place to start over and make new memories at for you and your family. Also, the next place is often an upgrade from your last home, with more bedrooms and more square feet to fit your family’s needs. However, moving can also sometimes cause quite the headache for nearly everyone who has to go through it, especially when you have a deadline and are in a time crunch and don’t know where to store everything you own. That’s where storage units come into play, making it a lot easier for you and for your family! With self storage units, you can store many of the things that you don’t necessarily use on a daily basis but are necessities that can wait to be unearthed at the next place. Even if you aren’t moving or don’t end up moving as you originally planned, it’s a great way to get rid of some clutter as you literally clean house!
Here are the best cheap storage units that make moving easy:
Public Storage – With 2,200 locations nationwide, Public Storage is one of the leading self storage units around. They are not only well-known for their clean and convenient storage spaces, they also have great discounts, including $1 first month rent – they also currently have an online only special of 15% off monthly rent.
U-Haul – This company is the ultimate moving company, as proven by their many moving trucks all over the place! Chances are, you have probably seen at least a handful (or more) of U-Haul trucks making their way from destination to destination in various sizes. But did you know that U-Haul also has storage facilities? At U-Haul storage facilities you can anticipate clean, dry and secure locations. They are open seven days a week, including evenings and holidays. Most locations are even accessible 24 hours! There is no deposit and you can even make your payments online.
Cubesmart – When storing your things with them, you can get some great discounts, including up to two months rent free and up to 15% off your monthly rent. They come in variety of unit sizes and features climate controlled storage, units with drive up access and parking for vehicles – even boats, RV’s and ATV’s would fit!

With over 1,000 convenient storage locations, they also boast state of the art security, professional managers, a variety of sizes, clean and well lit facilities, and even climate controlled units. You can also get up to one month free, depending on the unit size.
Spare Foot – This storage finder has the largest inventory online, with 7000+ facilities across the nation to choose from and arguably the best selection. It’s not necessarily an actual storage unit as it is a finder of the best units, which we can’t complain about. In fact, you can get access to exclusive special offers and a $20 rebate just for booking online with them.
