Separation and Divorce Storage: How Self -Storage Can Help at the End of a Marriage

Separation and Divorce Storage: How Self -Storage Can Help at the End of a Marriage


The end of a relationship can be a very trying time, especially if you share assets and live with the other person. Along with processing your divorce or separation, you also must deal with splitting up belongings and figuring out where you’re going to live. We want to help by offering a short guide on how self-storage can help ease you through this transition.

How Self-Storage Can Help a Divorce or Separation Process

First, take some time to grieve your relationship.

Now is the time to focus on yourself. Make it a point to mourn what you’ve lost, and then remember everything you still have. If you are fortunate to have somewhere to live for the time being, use this period to do the things you’ve been wanting to do. This can be a hard time, but it can also be a fresh start for you.

Dividing your assets and moving out.

This is almost never an easy process. If you feel you can’t do this without getting emotionally charged, find a neutral space like a storage unit. Your shared home can often bring up memories that makes this step difficult — a neutral zone can help to eliminate this and make things a little smoother.

Once everything is divided between you and your former partner, it’s time to move out. For this step, it’s important to rely on your friends and family to help get you through. Ask them to help you with packing and moving — you may be surprised at how many people will be more than willing to help you. If you can’t find an apartment or new house right away, you may have a friend or family member who will let you stay with them for a while.

Transitioning your belongings into storage.

Being between homes is a difficult spot to be in. While your loved ones are willing to give you a place to stay, it may be a little more difficult to bring bulky furniture with you. If you’re not ready to move into a permanent house or apartment, a self-storage facility is a helpful solution for keeping your belongings. Some storage facilities will even offer postal boxes to receive your mail while you’re waiting for a place. This is also a great way to quickly access your possessions when you need to.

Make a list of everything you have in storage.

Sometimes during the division of property, things can become misplaced. Keeping a list of everything in your storage unit can help if your former partner contacts you, looking for something.
