Moving to a new home can be an exciting experience for everyone in your household to look forward to. However, moving can also be quite complicated, and a chaotic, badly organized relocation can affect the entire family’s ability to adjust to the transition.
Because moving is a complex multi-step process, many homeowners seek help from professional moving and storage companies. Among the most useful services that such companies can provide to make the moving process smoother and more convenient are storage solutions.
Many people use storage facilities to keep household items that they rarely use in order to declutter their existing home. However, many do not know that these storage spaces can be useful when planning a move as well. In this article, our expert team of storage and moving experts from Central Transportation Systems will discuss how storage solutions can go hand-in-hand with your next residential moving project for a more successful transition into your new home.
Provides Extra Storage Before and After the Move
If you’re downsizing into a smaller home, storage solutions are a wonderful solution for storing items you don’t use but haven’t had time to sell. Storage can also be helpful for keeping seasonal items—whether they’re heavy winter clothes, ski equipment, gardening tools, pool toys, and other things you might not use for months out of the year.
As the move date gets nearer, you can pack larger items in each room in order for you to organize and clean up. Make sure that you put labels on your boxes, so you will not find it difficult to locate them later on and place them on the appropriate rooms of your house.
Complimentary Use of Amenities, Supplies, and Moving Equipment
In order to help our customers enjoy a more pleasant moving experience, some moving and storage companies (like Central Transportation Systems) offer free perks for storage unit renters. These perks can include complimentary moving assistance and other services, tools and equipment for moving bulky and heavy items, and furniture pads that can protect your possessions from dents and scratches during your move. These free amenities are useful when you don’t have extra cash to spare for assistance or such equipment during your move.
Avoid Damage to Furniture
If you have antique cabinets, awkwardly shaped furniture, and other bulky shelves that take up too much of the space in your moving truck, it is a good idea to keep them in storage facilities. Moving with such furniture and other household items may run the risk of potential damage to these items when the boxes shift around in the truck as it travels to your new location. By keeping these pieces of furniture in your rented storage space, you will be able to keep them safe and protected.
Security and Ability to Move at Your Own Pace
A rushed move is a chaotic move. When you rent a storage unit, you will be able to move one room at a time. This can be a great way to move slowly at your own pace and to avoid the stress and hassle of a last-minute move.
Most storage companies will also allow unlimited access to your belongings whenever you need them, providing you with a safe and convenient space to keep your items for as long as you need them. Reliable storage facilities also have tight security, state-of-the-art safety features, and property insurance, so that you can rest easy knowing that your items are in safe hands.
