When you are moving house, the last thing that anyone wants to think about is storage. It’s a painful prospect, having to gather that which you want but do not have room for, and taking it to its new cell, far away from its old home. But there are many things that you can do to make moving your extraneous items in to storage much less painful. From time saving tips that you can perform yourself to hired services that will do everything for you, there are no end of ways to make moving home and getting things in to storage much more simple and easy.
If you need storage, take advantage of an all-in-one company, and you will find that the while ‘storage’ element of your house move has vanished like a puff of smoke. You will likely be hiring a removals company to carry out your move in the first place, so why not pay that little bit extra to use a company that will take care of that worrisome element for you!?
It may seem ridiculous, but there are companies abound who will carry out every part of your move for you. From packing up your knives and forks for you, to supplying boxes and unpacking everything at the other end, there is a service who will do exactly what you need for the right price. With this in mind, using an all-encompassing company can actually reduce your overall costs, as most of their services will be done in house, and you can avoid the charges incurred by using different companies.
The sort of company that you will need are the kind that will take your extra bits and pieces and pack them carefully so that they will be safe at all times. You may want to do this yourself in order to save some money, but thats up to you. Many removals companies will then hire a unit on your behalf and do the traveling for you as well as the unloading and moving in to the unit. You could do all of this yourself and save yourself a fair bit of money however, especially if you have a large car or van. The point at which the cost becomes worthwhile is when you are using a specialist company that have their own storage spaces and systems.
These companies will put your belongings carefully on a pallet and pack them up into a self-contained wooden crate, which will then be transported to their secure warehouse and stowed safely amongst other wooden crates which are kept under supervision until the point when you want them again, at which point the crate will be retrieved and delivered to your door, and even unpacked and put in place for you! Such a service is the kind of thing that will reduce your workload as well as your blood pressure during a move, with the added security of not having to worry about who you are dealing with, as you will have gotten to know your removals company very well by the time they are doing such things for you.
If you don’t fancy that, then you can always rent a van, load it up yourself, find the best quote for a storage unit, drive everything over thee, unload the van, load up the unit, drive back, drop off the van and then go home, but if I were you… I wouldn’t bother!
