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.

“Applewood storage completely saved our move. During summer 2017 we were relocating to Madison and I needed a place to store some items for a couple of months. Most of the storage spaces in Madison wanted a longer commitment. Applewood lets you cancel with a month notice. Also, the owner met me (on a Sunday!) when I arrived in town to show me the unit and give me the details on using it. The unit itself was pristine, and the grounds very well lit and clean. It’s in a very convenient location by the beltline and I-39. And when it came time to empty out my unit, my deposit was returned without a hitch.
By far the best self-storage experience I’ve ever had.”
