What to Do With Your Belongings When Working Overseas or Interstate

Store your belongings - Taking an extended work contract overseas or interstate can be exciting but figuring out what to do with your belongings is no easy feat. Most of the time, it's in the last few weeks before leaving home that it hits you hard. When you are in a situation like this, the pressing question of what to do with all your stuff while you are gone inevitably comes up.

You can start with identifying which among your belongings are the most essential—those items that go wherever you go—then you can decide to sell your unwanted items, give them away, or drop them off at donation centres. But what about your other big items, such as furniture and whitegoods, that are also valuable and in good condition, but you can’t take these with you?

This is when you have to think about the options available to you, whether you should sell the items or get rid of them completely because you will only be away temporarily and not necessarily relocating or moving. If the reason for being away for an extended period is a change of work contract or contract extension, you might still be coming back home during holidays or when your contract expires.

So what do you do with your items that are too big and valuable to you? Our solution, instead of getting rid of all your items at home, is to store them in a vault mobile storage box.

Store Your Belongings in a Mobile Storage Box

If your home is not as secure as you’d like, keeping your precious belongings there while you are gone may not be the safest idea. Maybe your home has multiple rooms, including some decent storage areas, but since you’ll be away from home for quite a long time, you may choose to rent your home to cover some of your travel costs. In this case, you’d want to protect the valuables you have and may wish to keep them away from tenants and avoid any potential damage or loss of goods from your home.

Store your belongings - You may not have family members or a friend available who can look after your items while you're away. At Vault Mobile Storage we can offer pod storage solutions to suit your needs and deliver a storage box right to your door.

Storing your whitegoods and other personal belongings in a mobile storage box while you are away for either a short or a long period of time is a common option among people who have to work in another state or country. Hiring a mobile storage box is a popular choice because it is one of the most efficient solutions to ensuring that your items are kept secure and safe while you’re away.
