If you’re tackling a move right now in San Diego, you know how time consuming and stressful it can be. You don’t have much time to get everything out of your current house and into the next, and often times, there is a gap in there somewhere between the closing and the new move-in date. What do you do with all your stuff in the meantime? Don’t leave it up to chance.
This is where storage services from your movers can come in very handy. Here at Best Fit Movers, we offer temporary storage-in-transit or permanent storage for needs more than 90 days. Your belongings are containerized in large wooden vaults, with each one being 7′ long x 6′ wide x 8′ tall. Marked by low monthly rates, we offer secure, staffed and alarmed storage in a well-ventilated, well-maintained facility.
Let’s take a look at why you would need storage when moving and the benefits that come with partnering with a full-service storage and moving company.
1. Storage Units Keep You Organized
Full-service storage allows you to conveniently store items that you don’t need right away after moving, such as the contents of your attic, garage or basement. Thus, you can pack the necessities last, then unpack them first once in the new home so you don’t have to claw through boxes of seasonal décor, for example, to find what you really need.
2. You Get an Overview of Your Belongings
When taking advantage of a “storage in transit” service, once all your belongings are in one place, you can get a big-picture view of what you have and what you need first. Your items are inventoried, providing a list and breakdown of everything you own. It’s easier to sort and organize when you get this birds’ eye view of things.
This can be especially helpful if you’re planning to downsize your square footage or are losing closet space or exterior storage space. Without cluttering your new space so soon, you can more accurately plan your layout and decide in a thoughtful way which pieces should go where.
3. You Get More Time
Whether you’re facing a quick relocation to a new city for a job, or the closing on the new house isn’t lining up with the move-in date, time may not be on your side. You may only have a day or two to hand over the old keys and take possession of the new house, leaving you with minimal time to get everything moved out and in — in a hurry. With storage units, you can start this process weeks beforehand if you want, saving yourself time and hassle. Thus, you can tackle the move in stages, undertaking the move on YOUR terms – not anyone else’s.
Why add to the hectic nature of a move? It’s comforting to know you can store your important belongings away from all that chaos where they won’t be in any danger of getting damaged. Keeping your items out of harm’s way is easy when you know you can place them in a temporary storage unit. This gives you time to gradually clear out your home during the upcoming move, saving your sanity in the process!
4. You Can Reduce Clutter
No matter how organized or quick you are, there will be clutter and unwanted items to contend with when moving. It’s not easy to arrange furniture in the new house when you are constantly tripping over boxes of extraneous stuff. Use storage as an out-of-the-way place to put all the stuff you don’t need right now so you can concentrate on the necessities at your own pace.
When prepping for a move to the new location, especially in a downsizing situation, take some time to weed through your items and collect them in various bins. One can be for trash (things that are broken or stained), another can be for charity (gently used items) and another can be for things to sell (online or a yard sale at the house). This is an easy way to declutter the space without getting overwhelmed.
5. You Get Security and Peace of Mind
Vacant homes are a common target among burglars. You may be tempted to leave your valuable items in the old home while transporting all your everyday stuff to the new home. But this isn’t a very smart idea because savvy burglars may target your home when they know you’re moving and may not be there all the time. For extra security and peace of mind, leave your valuables in storage instead until you can monitor them in the security of your new home.
Plus, it’s convenient because you can access those items whenever you want thanks to local, temporary storage. Maybe you’ve accidentally packed something you didn’t mean to and that you’ll need sooner rather than later. In that instance, you can just visit the storage facility and pick it up.
