Moving your household is never easy and can be quite time consuming. To make things easier on yourself and your family, consider using mobile storage containers from a company like Southbend Storage Solutions for your next move. You may find yourself surprised at the advantages of having storage containers delivered to your current home for packing.
Packing, Stacking and Unpacking
If you have ever tried to get the packing started while still living in the house, you know the aggravations that go along with it. Boxes get in the way of everything, and quite often, you end up going through them to look for something you want. When you have storage containers, you can store boxes and unnecessary furniture out of the way. It is also less tempting to open a box and go through it when you have to go out and unlock the container first.
Another packing advantage to using mobile storage containers is that you can have one container for each room. Now, when it comes time to move and then unpack, everything for each room is packed together. Everyone can unpack his or her own room and then work together on the common rooms. This means no more shifting around and peeking into boxes to get them where they belong.
Moving and Storage
You can have the containers delivered to you and then picked up and taken to your new home. If you need a bit of time to find a new home, the containers can be stored by the storage company in a safe, secure warehouse. Choose to have the containers brought to you as you are ready to unpack them. The containers are available in different sizes, you only pay for what you need as far as moving and storing -- no more paying for a bigger truck than you need or space you aren't using.
Access to Your Belongings
You provide the locks that go on the containers. If the containers are stored on your property, you have access to all your belongings at all times. This is good if you will be packing or unpacking at odd hours. If the containers are taken to the storage facility, you will have to access things during the company's business hours. However, you will still be the only one with keys to the locks.
Mobile storage containers give you extra time to pack, store and unpack your possessions when moving your household. Instead of rushing to get everything onto a moving truck in one day, take your time. The containers can sit in your yard for as long as you need and then the company will move them to your new home when you are ready for them.
