A Guide To Moving Out And Recovering After A Breakup MIBOX

Broke up with your partner and need to move out fast? Your friends at MI-BOX mobile storage can help!

Ahhh, breakups: a tragic love tale that most people will go through at least once. Some deal with it pretty well, while others will take it very badly, especially if a dwelling is being shared. 

It’s a terrible feeling to suffer for love, whether you stand strong or crumble after splitting, so we have compiled some tips that will hopefully make the transition a bit easier. At this point, you’re probably wondering how a storage unit company can help, and trust us, it totally can! 

Don’t go anywhere; just read on to find out. 

Life waits for no one. Here’s how to organize a move quickly

Life Doesn’t stop, even if you’re feeling blue. During the beginning stages of a breakup, there is no time to slow down. On the contrary, you will likely need to organize yourself as best as possible and move out rather quickly.

  1. Depend on Family and Friends

We all have loved ones; the last thing any of us would want is for them to be in a dark place when they need the most support. 

Be as transparent as you possibly can and ask them to help you organize a moving team to get you out of that space quickly, even if you just want to be alone.  

Removing yourself with haste and going to neutral grounds will be less painful and toxic in the long run. It’s incredibly valuable to dwell in places where loving family and friends await, so count on them to help you reach a better place. 

  1. Pack items that won’t bring back bittersweet memories

Contrary to popular belief, it’s important not to pack as much as you can grab. Doing that can cause unnecessary drama, especially if you accidentally take something that belongs to your once-upon-a-time spouse.

The goal is to move to a neutral space fast, not add more weight to your shoulders. It’s best to take things that you need and won’t make your broken heart sting. Maybe leave behind the gifts and items that remind you of your ex-partner. 

It will improve your healing journey overall, and packing lighter means moving out faster. 

  1. Turn to MI-BOX for mobile storage while life falls back into place 

Moving out after a breakup takes a toll on your emotions and, by default, your body. The last thing most people want to do is concentrate on finding a new home while juggling feelings, work and personal life. MI-BOX is here to help. 

By placing your things in one of our mobile storage solutions to deal with later, you can truly take the time you need to clear your mind, whether that be hanging out at a family member’s house, travelling abroad to do some soul-searching, or just figuring out your next move. 

Here’s how MI-BOX works

We’ve got three sizes for you to choose from, so it doesn’t matter if you’re leaving with more things than you came in with or leaving with less than you contributed; there is a portable storage container that will meet your needs. 

  • Small – 8’ x 7.5’ x 7.5’
  • Medium – 16’ x 7.5’ x 7.5’
  • Large – 20’ x 7.5’ x 7.5’

Don’t worry about driving a clunky and awkward moving truck, alright? You need 100% focus when driving those things, and it’s just not the time. We’ve got you covered. Our expert drivers will show up wherever you need us. 

They will use state-of-the-art lift technology to unload and level your mobile storage unit perfectly on your driveway or anywhere that works safely. 

Once you’re done with the container, let us know where to take it next, whether that be another home or our clean and secure storage facility

You’ll also get some great advantages that align perfectly with a quick-move situation, like 24-hour access, so you can work at your own pace and any hour of the day or night when ‘you-know-who’ isn’t around. 

Our storage unit is made from high-quality materials, so no need to worry about Alberta’s crazy weather or a vindictive, recently broken-up ex. Your belongings will be safe from everything and everyone. 

A few helpful reminders for post-breakup recover 

One door may be closed, but many more have opened, whether you know it or not. Remember that you are loved, and many people want to see you recover and succeed! 

So, don’t forget:

  1. Give yourself some space and time.
  1. Be kind and forgiving to yourself.
  1. Keep up with your hobbies, rediscover old ones, or learn new ones.
  1. Express your feelings to loved ones that are judgement free. If needed, seek professional help. 
  1. Try not to turn to substances to ease the pain, as it could create new challenges.
  1. Get regular sleep, nourish your body with good food, stay active and explore.
  1. Don’t take that human back without balanced emotions and thought processes. Figure out what is truly beneficial to you so you don’t settle for what is familiar.
