Why Moving & Storing Your Belongings With the Same Company Makes Sense
Most moves require long periods of preparation and packing, specialized transportation, and lots of logistical planning. For many homeowners, storing some or most of their belongings during the moving process is a smart investment that simplifies the overall process.
Logistics can become complex during a move, especially when you cross state lines or move out of the region. You will know you are in need of storage if any of the following is true:
Many moving companies, such as Main Street Movers, offer storage options. Some companies provide storage in a traditional facility, while others offer secure storage in a warehouse or truck yard. If your moving company provides warehousing style storage, it will likely keep your belongings in the pod or truck so you don’t have to worry about unpacking and repacking anything.
Why Store Through Your Moving Company?
Storing your items with the company that you’re moving with provides the following benefits.
Perhaps the greatest advantage of completing this process with a single company is convenience. If you work with separate companies, you must coordinate many logistical details with the moving team and with the storage facility. You will have to make a more detailed schedule to ensure your items arrive on time. Combining these services allows you to keep track of one contract, estimate, and timeline rather than two or three.
When you store with a different company than the one you move with, you may be responsible for unloading your belongings, organizing them within the storage unit, and even reloading them into the truck. If you choose to store and move with the same company, any packing or unpacking is handled by experienced professionals.
Lower Overall Cost
If you know that you will have to cover the cost of storage one way or another, storing with your mover can reduce the overall cost. Not only do you not have to account for the extra cost of storing your belongings on its own but you also won’t have to add on the cost of transporting your possessions from the storage facility separately.
Peace of Mind
When you work with multiple companies, you have to vet each business individually. If you have found a moving company that you trust that also offers storage options, storing with your mover saves you the trouble and anxiety of finding a reputable storage company.
