In Between Rentals? What to Do Between Move-in Dates
If you have already moved and haven’t quite lined up a new place to stay, you will need a place where you can store your belongings safely until you’re able to move in. If you are at a loss as to what to do next, you have come to the right place.
Here are some recommendations to try courtesy of Schultz Brothers Van & Storage, a Santa Rosa-based moving and storage company.
Ask Family and Friends
Ask your family and friends if they have extra space where you could store your belongings for some time. When you store your items with a friend or family member, you have peace of mind knowing that your belongings are in safe hands. Plus, you don’t have to pay anything to store your goods in between your move. You can return the favor in future if they ever need help.
Use a Portable Storage Container
If you have a trailer, you can use a portable storage container that you can take with you on the go. You can use a portable storage container to bring all your items with you throughout the moving process.
Though they have several benefits, storage containers are not for everyone as they can take up a lot of space and are more expensive than storage units in Santa Rosa. Invest in a container only if your budget allows you to and you will continue to move for a long time or foresee the need for a container in future.
Rent a Storage Unit
There are several compelling reasons to rent a storage unit. When you store your goods with a reputable local storage company, you can rest assured that a team of seasoned experts will take necessary steps to ensure the safety of your items.
What size storage do I need? -This is one of the most important questions you need to ask yourself when selecting a storage unit. Take measurements and choose accordingly. If you are unsure of what size storage you need even after taking measurements, talk with a professional.
If you have goods such as collector’s items, leather furniture and fine clothing that are vulnerable to heat and cold damage, look for a climate-controlled facility.
Before you sign on the dotted line, go through the terms and conditions of service thoroughly. Take the time to understand the cost structure and elements. If you do not understand a particular cost element, do not hesitate to ask questions.
