- MOVING AND STORAGE SERVICES WITH PORTABLE CONTAINERS
These huge boxes are often found on the backs of semi-trucks and parked in front of homes. These portable storage boxes are great for storing and moving your stuff.
These are the main advantages of using storage and moving container companies such as Sterlinginterstate.
You don’t need to drive. You can no longer navigate busy streets or speedy highways while driving a large moving truck. With Sterlinginterstate, your storage unit is delivered to you and can be shipped or delivered wherever you need it.
Load only once. You can save a lot of time and effort if you are moving and storing at the same time with Sterlinginterstate.
You have flexibility in loading and storage. For extra storage, you can load your stuff at the pace that suits you best. You can also have your container sent to a secure storage facility and delivered to your new residence when it is ready. Sterlinginterstate allows you to access your stuff even if the container is in storage. You can give them 24 hours’ notice to have your container ready.
These features make Sterlinginterstate great for long-distance moves or local moves that require storage.
Storage containers are not suitable for moving because loading and unloading are not included. You can hire an hourly moving service to do the heavy lifting and packing. Many people prefer the flexibility to only pay for what they use. They might need help loading the container but they don’t want any assistance once it’s been delivered. Instead, they would like to be able to sort through and organize things room by room.
- FULL-SERVICE MOVERS WITH STORAGE
Storage has become so popular that more movers offer it as an optional service. If you are looking for a more hands-off approach to moving and don’t mind spending a lot of money, hiring full-service movers who also offer storage might be an option.
Full-service movers can do all the heavy lifting for you, including loading, driving, unloading, and taking your stuff to storage. Moving companies can also pack your boxes for an additional fee. This sounds fantastic. However, there are potential drawbacks to hiring full-service movers.
Cost is the biggest obstacle for most people. For cross-country trips, full-service moving and storage can run up to $10,000. For that amount, you can get a decent used car.
Even if you have the budget, full-service comes with certain risks.
You can trust other people to handle your stuff. There is also the possibility of lost or damaged goods.
Your stuff may be locked up in storage. Many full-service movers won’t allow you to access your belongings once they’re in their warehouse.
You might have your possessions mixed with other people’s. Storage containers keep everything together inside one container, in a storage center. This provides an extra layer of protection. Full-service movers may mix the belongings of multiple customers on the truck, in transit, or within a single storage unit or warehouse.
- SELF-STORAGE UNIT
An old-fashioned, local storage unit is the best option for storage. There are likely to be several storage facilities in your area if you live in a large metropolitan area.
A storage unit has many advantages, including cost savings. It also gives you autonomy. It allows you to load and unload your storage unit whenever you like. This is a great choice for people who just need to store stuff, but not move at the same.
It is very labor-intensive. You have to not only load your stuff in a truck but also rent a truck if necessary. Then you need to unload it at the storage facility. When you are ready to move into your new home, you will need to repeat the process.
A portable storage container is a great option if you don’t want to have to carry all your stuff around several times.
