Are You Stuck Navigating Short-Term Housing? These Tips Can Help Make it a Success

It’s never been fun to find ways to make short-term housing work, but with the world in such a confusing place, today’s short-term housing could last for a month or for years. It is difficult to know. While we cannot help you with the difficulties of living in the time of COVID-19, we can help you navigate short-term housing by offering storage solutions that will work for you.

Corporate Housing or Subletting Might Be the Best Option

For many people, choosing corporate housing or subletting someone else’s space is the best option. There are a few advantages, including the fact that it is usually furnished, so you can put your belongings in secure storage and simply move in. Some of these options do not require leases, so if your situation changes and you move on, you will not be stuck paying for months you are not using the space.

The Advantages of Extended-Stay Hotels or Vacation Rentals

These are spots that offer monthly-stay rates for longer vacations and are therefore perfect for short-term housing. Think of a studio apartment with a kitchenette. You’ll generally have WIFI, on-site laundry, and many spots are even pet friendly. These are top choices for people who are staying near hospitals and other medical facilities, or for those who have to find a temporary spot for other reasons.

There Are Specific Options for College Students

Of course, the above covers the needs of business professionals but does not address the needs of college students who have limited budgets. In the past, they could have stayed at hostels very affordably, but that is not an option when social distancing is a priority. The good news is that there are short-term leasing options in many college towns that are being offered at a discounted rate. You can try contacting your college or university to see if they have any offerings.

Store the Things You Don’t Need

Too often, people believe they have to choose between their belongings and convenience. This is false. You can put all of your most important things in your local storage facility. We will keep it safe and secure for you, so that when your life goes back to a semblance of normality, you will have your things waiting for you.

We cannot help you find a place to stay but we can provide a place for your belongings. Contact Spaceman Storage now at 562-696-3924 to learn more and get a storage unit for your needs.
