Sometimes it happens that you have to move out before your new home is actually ready. You can easily book a hotel and stay there for a few nights, but what will happen with your luggage, personal belongings, furniture, and valuables?
In such cases, the best thing to do is arrange short term storage, and hire a moving and storage contractor to relocate your stuff there. If you want to plan your overnight or 1-2 days storage moving well, read on and learn more about what the professional movers, working in Movers N More, have to say on the topic!
The cheapest option:
If you just need to store your things for one night, the most affordable option for you will be to hire a well-secured transportation truck and leave everything inside overnight. Although the fees for hiring the truck for so long may be a bit higher than hiring a storage unit for the same period, you will save a lot on labor. Instead of hiring movers to load and unload the truck twice, you will only have to do it once. This will make your bill reasonable. However, make sure you are aware of where the truck will be parked for the night, if you choose this option.
What to look for in a short term storage unit
When you need to rent some storage space for a week, you need to make sure that it covers certain standards. Here is what you should be looking for:
– The unit you rent should have an alarm and be well-secured.
– Don’t leave any perishable items inside the storage. You better leave them with some friends or neighbors instead.
– Make sure the storage is clean and dry, especially if you have to store furniture, musical instruments, books, documents, or clothes. If there is moisture in the room it can damage them, even in a short period of time.
– Make sure that the company you have hired has an all access policy, and you will be able to visit the storage premises whenever you need.
