When I signed up to relocate to a new country, I had no idea what I was in for. Although I had planned to ship the contents of my entire apartment to my new digs, I realized that it wasn't going to be a possibility after I moved to my place. I realized that apartments other places were much, much smaller, and that I needed to unload my things in a storage unit. I instructed my family to go through and find a great storage facility for me, and they were able to get a great deal on storing my larger appliances and boxes of clothes. Check out this blog for more information on storing while you live abroad.
