No matter where you live or the size of your home, lack of space seems to be a universal complaint that we all share. As the square footage of homes and apartments gets progressively smaller, external storage solutions are gaining in popularity. You may be at a point in your life where you haven’t put down roots. And therefore, these are the short-term storage solutions for you. Whatever your specific circumstances, easystock has the solutions and flexibility you need. Discover all the advantages of temporary or short-term storage solutions to offer you peace of mind during life’s major upheavals.

A flexible schedule

What makes temporary storage units particularly convenient and attractive is the lack of commitment. You can rent a storage unit for the duration that suits you, without the rental period exceeding the utility it gives you. Let’s say, for example, that you have sold your house and that you simply need space to store your belongings while waiting to find a new home. Or maybe you’re temporarily storing items that you plan to sell or gift in the near future.

Whatever the case, temporary storage solutions allow you to remain flexible with your schedule. At easystock, you can benefit from monthly rentals for units of various sizes. You can therefore choose the right area to rent and extend your lease according to your needs. You can also opt for smaller units or “mini-storage” if you do not have a lot of goods to keep.
