There are so many more options for moving storage now than there used to be in the past. Sometimes when families are moving storage space is a necessity. This may be because you are downsizing and cannot fit all of your belongings in your new home, or it could just be that you need extra storage space for seasonal gear or sports equipment, etc. Moving storage may also be utilized for business and office purposes. If you have a home office or are moving between offices, you may use a moving storage facility to store old files and equipment.
There are three main types of moving storage you can choose from for these purposes. The first type of moving storage option is to work with a moving company. Basically, you would pay the company to pick up the items you need to store. They will then take the items to the desired location and store the items for you. Whenever you need the items again, you would then call upon the moving storage company and arrange for them to bring your belongings elsewhere.
Another moving storage option is self storage. This option gives you easier access to your stuff and may be a better choice if you will need to access the items you need to store on a fairly regular basis. You would be responsible for moving your items to and from the self storage unit, although many self service storage facilities have box trucks available to rent for these purposes. Self storage units are a good choice for moving storage because you can basically access your unit 24 hours a day. Self storage units are usually rented on a month to month basis with prices varying according to the unit size of unit you need. Since many of these units are climate controlled as well, this is an excellent option if you need to store items that cannot stay in a very cold or very hot environment.
The third option you have for moving storage are portable self storage units. These consist of a unit that is actually brought to your location (home or office) and stays there until you ask the moving storage company to take it away or move it. This is a very convenient option if you need daily access to items and need them to be very close to you. However, you should keep in mind that these portable units will not have the option of climate control.
