Moving Storage

If you are moving into a house that is smaller than where you were before or don't think you'll have time to unpack everything right away you need to investigate storage opportunities. Some moving companies offer storage opportunities if you agree to another part of their service.

Many movers offer free storage for a month or two to those who sign up for their one way truck rentals, etc. The length of time you can use the storage facility may be regulated, but this is usually clearly stated by the company or in your paperwork. Most allow use of the storage either before or after you use their service.

This can be very convenient if you are expecting your move to be temporary and don't want to move everything or you simply don't have the money/manpower to complete the move.

Storage facilities offer a number of great amenities that could answer a potential problem you're having with your move. Here are a few:

Optimizing your storage space is important to saving money.

Make sure you abide by your storage facility's guidelines pertaining to the items you place in storage and see what types of services that they offer before you move. Some offer to come to your house and help load the truck, and then unload it at the storage facility themselves. Being trained to do this means they will optimize the space available to storage and save you money.
