Finding the Right Short-Term Storage Service for You
There’s a lot of planning to do when you’re preparing for a move, and if your move-out date is fast approaching, you may be feeling the added pressure of what to do with all your stuff. Whether you’re moving to a smaller space, want to get rid of some items but haven’t had time to do so yet, or your move-in date is not the same as when you’re moving out, you may find yourself looking for short-term storage.
As your move approaches, figuring out what to do with your extra belongings is just one more task on your growing to-do list. And you may be wondering exactly how to find the short-term storage service that works best for your needs. Don’t worry—Bennett Movers is here to help. In this article, we’ll discuss the available storage types so that you can make an informed decision.
Do Moving Companies Offer Storage?
Yes, many moving companies do offer storage solutions for their customers. Depending on the company, these can range from short-term, on-vehicle options prior to the move, or on-site storage available at their facility.
In the latter case, your moving company will provide you with—or refer you to—a secure, climate-controlled facility where you can store your belongings for a set period of time. These facilities are typically well-maintained and monitored, ensuring the safety and security of your belongings.
Short-Term Storage Options
Depending on your specific needs and the moving company you choose, there are a few different short-term storage options available. One option is to use a self-storage company. These companies, such as CubeSmart and Public Storage, have nationwide locations and allow you to rent a storage space on a monthly basis. You’ll have the freedom to access your unit as needed and only pay for the time you use. This can be a great option if you need a little extra space to hold your belongings while you move or make renovations to your new property.
Another short-term storage option is to use a portable unit. Companies like PODS and 1-800-PACK-RAT offer portable storage containers that can be delivered to your home. You can then pack your belongings into the container at your leisure, and the company will pick it up and store it in a secure facility until you’re ready for it to be delivered to your new home. This can be a convenient option for those who need a little extra time to get everything packed and organized.
