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.

“This place is hands-down the best storage facility in the area! Dave was accommodating, professional & pleasant. I live in Michigan and had an unexpected event happen that required an immediate need for a storage unit with very short notice. I called and described the situation I was in when I spoke with Dave, and he very kindly helped me figure out the type and size of the unit I’d need, from the information I gave him. Dave was very easy to work with and was very clear in what was expected of me as well. Units are clean, well secured and easy to access. I highly recommend Applewood storage for anyone is considering storing things in the long or short term.”
