Entering into a lease for a rental unit
Are you planning to rent a home for a period of time? Whether it's month to month or 12 months, you should consider renting a home near you when evaluating temporary housing options. This option is especially good for anyone who needs to move or is looking to build a home. If you would rather have a temporary home with your belongings and furniture inside, then signing a rental lease may be the best option for you. Just be aware that when you sign a formal lease, the tenant is required to pay all agreed-upon rent. Depending on the terms of your lease, you may not be able to sublet the unit to another tenant when you are ready to move
Finding a vacation rental with Airbnb
Whether you want to enjoy a real holiday between moves or rent a vacation home in your own city, Airbnb offers easy-to-manage online sites for finding temporary accommodations. On these sites, you can search for both short-term and long-term vacation rental properties, although most opportunities are short-term. Many holiday rentals are fully furnished, which means you won't have to pack a lot of stuff. Additionally, visitors can choose from renting an entire house, a single room in a house or even a guest apartment. Reviews are typically available for rentals, making it easy to find what's right for you.
Staying with friends or family
Do you have family or friends who would welcome you with open arms? If you are lucky enough to have a place to stay for free, you can talk to your loved ones about it. Of course, keep in mind that because there is no contract, things can go wrong. Find out if your friends and family members are willing to have you in their home for a long period of time.
Book a suite in a long stay hotel
Do you like hotel living? We recommend checking out the prices and amenities of extended stay hotels near you. These establishments differ from the classic hotel in that they offer long-term accommodation. Rooms in long-stay hotels usually have a bed, living space and a small kitchen. Amenities include weekly maid service, Internet access, on-site laundry facilities, a fitness center, and room service and breakfast buffet. Many extended-stay hotels are also located near business centers and numerous restaurants.
Are you leaving for work? If your company is relocating to a new city, find out about corporate housing options. It is common for large companies to rent or own a furnished house, studio or apartment for their employees when they are traveling or relocating for business reasons. In the event that your company does not have an allotment option, it is possible to pay for short-term housing expenses, whether it is an Airbnb or a room in a long-stay facility. Be sure to check whether or not the company pays for relocation costs before signing your employment contract.

FAQ | International move & Temporary housing
What should I bring with me when I move into temporary housing?
This varies depending on the type of temporary rental you are moving into. If you are planning to move into a fully furnished unit, you will not need to bring your furniture. If you are moving into a long-term hotel, a second home, or a relative's home, you will not be required to bring bedding, linens, dishes, kitchen supplies, toilet paper, or household products.
What should I do with my belongings?
There are currently four options for what to do with your belongings when you move into intermediate housing. Place them in a self-storage facility. If the temporary housing facility is equipped, you can do without your belongings. Consider putting them in a self-storage facility near your home. Most self-storage units rent monthly, which is a very convenient and inexpensive storage option for belongings.
How to choose a storage company?
If you plan to store fragile or valuable items, you choose a company that offers permanent surveillance or a security service. If you need to store wooden furniture, paintings that require a particular temperature or papers that you cannot take with you, you should know that some companies offer a ventilation system.
