One often-overlooked component of moving is storage. There are a few different scenarios in which a storage service can be involved in moving. There are also a couple of different options for the types of storage to use. By choosing the right storage facility, Chattanooga residents can make their move simpler and less stressful.
Short-term Storage for Moving
In theory, a move is very simple—all the items get picked up at one location and transported to another. In reality, there are often hurdles involved. Perhaps a house is sold before the new residence is available for move-in. Perhaps there is concern as to whether or not some items will fit. Perhaps it’s not practical to move all possessions at once. In all of these cases, short-term storage can be the answer. Possessions can be moved into a storage facility and kept there at relatively low cost until there is room for them in the new home or elsewhere.
Long-term Storage for Moving
Some moves require people to leave their belongings behind for a long period of time. When moving from a large home to a smaller one, obviously, some things can’t come along, but if the homeowner doesn’t want to part with those items, a storage facility might be the only solution. The same thing might happen for a long distance or international move. For instance, Chattanooga residents who are moving to China or Japan may not want to face the high cost of moving all of their belongings, so they may choose to store those belongings in a secure facility instead.
Independent vs. Integrated Storage Service
There are storage facilities everywhere, so choosing one can be a challenge. Many of these are independent, stand-alone facilities. The majority of these are fine, very secure and part of trustworthy companies, but some are not. They also lack the convenience of an integrated storage service, meaning a service that is either allied with or part of a moving company. In addition to giving the convenience of dealing with a single company, an integrated service like this can easily divert whatever belongings that need to be stored to a storage facility as part of the move, rather than requiring a second move.
