Keeping You Informed with Linda Linfoot

Sometimes when moving, you’ll find yourself in between homes a few days or weeks. While it would be great if you could move all of your possessions into your parent’s basement while you live in a hotel in the interim, that might not be possible. Thankfully, there are numerous short-term storage options available to people in this exact predicament. First, look for a storage unit that can be rented by the week or month where you can drive up, unload your possessions, store them and then come and pick them up when you’re ready to move into your new home. This is a great option as most storage units are monitored by cameras and/or security teams, are climate controlled and include pest prevention measures. If your area doesn’t have a self-storage option, you can look into a portable storage unit where the container is delivered to your home, you pack it up, and then it’s removed to a storage facility or a location of your choice such as your new home’s driveway or a facility across the country if that’s where you’re moving. These containers are very convenient, built to withstand harsh weather and elements and are professionally delivered and transported so you don’t have to worry about driving a truck full of your possessions from point A to B. Finally, some moving companies have storage facilities as well that you can rent space in. This can be handy if you opt for a full-service moving package where they will pack your items, store them and then deliver everything to your new home when you’re ready.
