Here at Storage World we know all too well that everyone has their own specific needs and requirements when storing their things during a move. With factors like container size, mobile storage services, and storage site locations to consider, it can be tricky to work out exactly what you need. Here are 5 things you may want to consider:
1. Rental Length
If your new property is available, using our mobile storage service will make things all the more convenient for you. We deliver our portable moving containers to you and then move them onto your new home, so you won’t need to rent a van or hire a moving company. If your new property isn’t available yet, we can either leave the container with you for as long as you want, or store it at one of our safe locations for as long as you need.
2. Container Location
If you go with the latter, you’ll need to choose an appropriate location for your container. We have three separate Atlanta storage facilities, so picking the one that is closest to you will make things a lot easier, especially if you want to access your container at any point. Obviously, if you’re going to keep your things in storage for a long period, having easy access to them will become more important.
3. Container Size
You can hire as many containers as you need, but ideally you’ll want to get the best rates possible, right? Well, it’s important for you to really think about how much space you need in that case. We offer containers that vary from small 25 square feet units, up to much larger ones that get up to 300 square feet. As you’d expect, prices go up the larger the containers get, so carefully thinking about your needs will help you get the best value for money. To make things easy, we have a handy space calculator that you can use to help you decide how much space you need.
To store your things as safely as possible, it’s a good idea to use boxes, bubble wrap, packing paper and other supplies to pack things up securely. The last thing you want is to unpack your things when you move to find all of your finest china smashed and broken. If you don’t already have these supplies, we can help you out here as well.
5. Safety and Security
It is important that your things are safe when being put into storage. Our mobile storage service guarantees this with our patented horizontal lift, as well as all of the security features we have at our storage sites. As a result, you’ll never have to worry that your valuable possessions are at risk.
The above considerations are important, so go ahead and think about exactly what you need before using any storage solution you come across. Hopefully, you’ll find that our services fit your requirements. Get a no obilgation quote today for a container to fit your needs.
