There are a number of good reasons to hire a full-service self-storage moving company. Even the simple act of relocating your belongings yourself can be overwhelming. There’s the need to box and label your belongings, wrap fragile valuables and pray they don’t break. Or hope the floors and walls don’t get scratched or scuffed, or that someone doesn’t hurt themselves getting that mammoth couch down three flights of stairs. There’s also the search for a friend – any friend – who owns a van or a truck. And where in the world do you store your stuff, anyway?
Here are some reasons you might consider skipping all of that and using a full-service self-storage moving company:
Too Much Stress
Moving your stuff requires intense physical labor. There’s concern about damage, both to yourself and your items. Hiring someone else allows you the peace of mind of knowing that your belongings are softly cushioned and tightly stored by professionals. Even if something does get accidentally damaged, the movers are insured. Furthermore, you don’t lift a finger! That’s as stress-free as it gets.
Professional movers have the right equipment for doing the move as efficiently as possible. Doing it by yourself usually involves randomly-sized boxes, generously donated by your local supermarket, which bottom out from the slightest weight. There’s also the issue of finding a truck, and hoping your friend shows up.
Your storage unit will be monitored 24 hours by hi-tech alarm and surveillance equipment. Most units also equipped with a powerful lock, so you never have to worry about the safety of your belongings.
Long-term storage can become exceedingly costly on its own. With full-service self-storage, you have a choice of different pricing options to fit your storage needs. It’s generally not only more convenient, but less expensive, especially considering the storage facility offers free pickup and delivery.
It Beats the Garage
Keep tossing things into the garage and pretty soon there’s no room for your car. Also, the garage is not climate-controlled. This causes dampness, which brings mildew and bugs. Extreme hot or cold can even destroy certain possessions. A garage might not even be as secure as it needs to be. Most importantly, if you’re ever looking to sell your home, a garage piled high with soggy boxes is going to make the garage appear much smaller than it should, which is never a great selling point.
As we continue to live in our apartments and houses, it’s only natural that the quantity of our possessions kept there increases. Sooner or later, an event will arise, which creates a need to relocate some of it. Whether you’re out of space, moving, remodeling, or changing the family dynamic, full-service self-storage is by far the best option.
