Moving Abroad / Long-Term

We have become known as the long-term, long-distance storage experts! As standard practices with our lease we will always ask you to designate an emergency contact as our back up in case you can’t be reached long distance. We will also be in communications via email so time zone differences are not any issue at all.

Whether you’re in the military, retiring, studying abroad or relocating overseas for a job, using self-storage and following a few tried-and-true practices can make your move much easier.Leaving things behind vs. cost and uncertainty of shipping. You can’t take everything with you. Not only is it impractical, but international shipping is very expensive. It’s so expensive, in fact, that it’s often cheaper to leave larger items behind and just buy something else in your new country.

Shipping overseas instead. When using a storage locker, you will only be packing what fits in that space. Shipping long distance or overseas requires more consolidation with the uncertainties of the cost of packaging, cost of shipping and any potential damage during shipping.

“I had a wonderful experience with Applewood Storage. Last year I had moved to Madison and the original storage company I was going to use, accidentally gave away my storage unit. They referred me to Applewood Storage and Dave the owner, worked somethings out and got me into a storage unit the day before the arrival of the the transportation company dropped off my stuff.

Dave was very kind, has a wonderful sense of humor and made me feel welcomed to my the city of Madison. Dave runs a top notch operation. The facility is clean and safe and was easily accessible from my apartment and my job.”
