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 highly recommend Applewood Self Storage. We searched around the Madison area for a storage unit when our new home was being built and I’m very glad we chose this facility. There is a real pride of ownership here and I felt confident we were doing business with an excellent company; one that cares about its facilities and also the people that rent from them. I felt safe going to our storage facility at anytime, and also appreciated how personable and helpful the owner, David, is. I can’t recommend this place highly enough!”
