The process of moving into a new home can prove to be time consuming and stressful. One of the things you can do to minimize some of that stress is to store your belongings in a safe place as you transition into your new home. In today’s post we take a look at some traditional and Mobile Storage Adelaide solutions to consider when it comes to moving into a new house.
1) Friends And Family Members
Regardless if you purchased a new home to get closer to your job, or if you simply want something that’s more in line with who you are, don’t be shy about the possibility of asking your friends and family members for assistance when it comes to temporarily storing large items. If you have an abundance of belongings, appliances and large furniture pieces, ask your family if you can temporarily store them in their place of residence. In some instances, you can even ask if they’re interested in items you no longer need. If they aren’t interested, consider donating them. At the end of the year, you’ll be able to list it as a tax-write off.
PODS is an acronym for Portable On Demand Storage. It was initially introduced back in the early 1990s and still remains a popular storage option for millions of people who move every year. The pods themselves, typically come as a 7, 12 or 16-foot steel box crate. They provide ground level access and can resist temperature and weather fluctuations. They also feature impact-resistant siding as well. Once you pack a pod, the company which owns the pod will physically move the pod for you. In most cases, they offer both long and short distance pod moving services.
3) Self Storage Facility
PODS are extremely expensive and ideal for large furniture pieces and appliances. A more affordable option for smaller sized items would be a self storage unit. In today’s world, self storage facilities provide advanced security features, climate controlled environments and 24 hour access. With a wide variety of different storage sizes and plans to choose from, it can accommodate your belongings no matter how small or large your house is.
4) In Transit Storage
If you choose to work with a full service moving company, they can work with you to provide storage in-transit. What this entails is that they’ll move the items out of your current home and store it for as much as 60 days, before delivering your items at your new home.
5) Mobile Storage Adelaide
Mobile Storage Adelaide consist of the same principle of getting a traditional storage unit at a facility. The primary difference is that storage containers are dropped off at your location and picked up after the fact. Meaning, a mobile storage company will deliver storage containers and boxes on your property as to which you can load your belongings. Then, once you’re finished they’ll come and pick up your items at your greatest convenience. Mobile storage functions similarly to the concept of renting PODS. However, portable storage is more ideal for smaller sized items that you can move on your own.
