You have sold your old home, and you have bought a new one, but it is still in the process of decorating and arranging, and you cannot move to it immediately. You have to leave your old home now so that the new owner can move there and you have found a place where you will spend the time until your new home is ready but you cannot move there all your belongings. You know that you have to leave your old home empty, but you do not know what to do with your possessions.
Where To Move All Your Belongings?
You have two options. You can either ask family and friends to help you and store your belongings in their homes and garages, or you can use the services of some of the self storage facilities and leave your things there until you decide to use them again. If you have too many items and your family and friends do not have enough space for everything then the only thing you can do is to give your best to find a good and reliable self-storage facility.
Choosing a Self-storage Facility
As it is the case with everything else, there are many self-storage facilities as well, and you have to act wisely and choose carefully one where you will store your belongings for a certain period. Ask someone to recommend you a good one, or do the research on your own and visit the pages of various companies. See what each of them has to offer and what are their terms and then determine which would be the best for you. Think about belongings you are going to bring with you and pack them separately and think about what exactly you have to store, whether you have some fragile items or those that require special conditions such as appropriate level of humidity and light, etc. Think about the size of a self-storage unit you will need and about your budget and how long you want your possessions to be stored there. Once you determine all this, you will be able to find a company that will best suit your needs and your budget.
What about Packing and Transport of Your Belongings to the Self-storage Facility?
As for packing of all your belongings and their safe transport to the self-storage facility, many of these self-storage companies offer these services as well, so if you cannot organize packing of your possessions and transport them on your own, make sure that you hire a company that can provide you with these services. They will bring everything that is necessary for packing and they will wrap and pack every single item carefully in boxes and then carry them to their transporting vehicle and transport them at once to the self-storage unit you have chosen. Your possessions will wait for your return there safely locked and monitored all the time. You can be sure that nothing unexpected will happen and as soon as you arrange your new home, you will be able to move all your belongings to it.
