A significant move frequently entails many moving parts and a lot of stress. You’ll need to hire a removalist, set up utilities, pack your belongings, etc.

However, there is sometimes an additional stressor in the middle of the process: storing your stuff for some time between moving out of your old home and moving into your new one.

Perhaps you’re considering an interstate move and need some time to complete a few tasks before making the final transfer. Maybe you’ll have to wait until your new home is move-in ready.

Perhaps you have travel plans or business obligations to attend to before you relocate. In each instance, there is a time gap between move-out and move-in.

If you need to store your belongings, consider hiring the same removalist handling your relocation. Rather than requiring you to hunt for other possible suppliers, a full-service removalist can handle all of the tasks related to your move. There are several compelling reasons to store with your removalist.

You Can Keep Your Items For As Long As You Like

A reputable removals firm can provide secure storage facilities that you may use for as long as you want/need, whether you’re moving overseas or want to store a few pieces of unused furniture.

Since most removals businesses charge for storage every week, there is no obligation or commitment, making the service very flexible and cost-effective.

You Can Save Both Time And Energy By Doing So

Consider the following scenario: you pack all of your belongings, including furniture and other large goods. They’re loaded onto a moving truck by you. They are delivered to a storage facility by truck.

Whether you’re in your present city or a new one, you’ll have to start over when you are ready to move into your new home: not with packing, but with loading all the boxes and heavy goods into the moving truck and unloading them when you arrive.

Even if you hire expert movers to do the hard lifting, you must be present at the storage facility to welcome them and shut everything up after they’re through. Before you realize it, you’ve spent almost as much time storing your belongings as moving.

By storing with your removalist, on the other hand, you can drastically cut down on the amount of time and effort you must devote to the process. Instead of adding a step in the middle, you can treat your move as one continuous process:

  • Pack your belongings.
  • Let the removalist store them.
  • Have them deliver everything to your new house whenever you’re ready to move in.

It’s a simple, flawless process that can save you time and energy during a hectic, often stressful time.

In Many Circumstances, Storing With Your Moving Company Will Save You Money

You’ll have to pay for a storage unit if you need to move all of your household belongings into one (or two, depending on the size of your home!).

Often, merely storing with the removalist can save you money. Although the storage facility usually relies solely on storage revenue, the removalist might offer both services.

Furthermore, the moving company may be able to provide storage costs based on the amount of time you require.

You need to store your belongings for a week or two, and you don’t want to pay for a month’s worth of storage. You don’t want to pay for two months if you only require the storage space for five weeks.

Instead, engage with your moving company to negotiate a storage cost representing the amount of time your belongings will be stored.

You should also consider that if you utilize a storage facility instead of dealing with a removalist, you may be trapped into a contract that lasts six months or a year, which is much longer than the period you intend to use the facility.

You Won’t Have To Worry About Locating A Large Storage Unit To Accommodate All Of Your Belongings

When you need to keep your belongings while moving, you’ll need a storage facility to accommodate everything. This could necessitate a large storage facility, especially if you have a large home or valuables to consider.

You may need to rent more than one storage unit to ensure that everything fits and is properly stored. When you deal with a removalist, on the other hand, they may analyze your storage requirements based on the contents of your home and ensure that they have sufficient supplies on hand.

Scheduling Can Be Made Easy By Storing With Your Removalist

If you store your belongings on your own, you’ll have to plan the removalists’ schedule with the storage facilities. There are instances when you can transport huge volumes into and out of some storage units.

Moving many of your belongings into or out of a storage facility while someone else is doing likewise can create additional issues.

On the other hand, when you work directly with your removalist, you must deal with one firm. This can help speed up the scheduling process and enhance the chances that you’ll be able to pick a time that works for you.

Using A Removalist To Store Your Belongings Can Provide You With More Peace Of Mind

It isn’t easy to entrust your belongings to someone else. You want to know that they’ll take good care of your belongings while you’re gone so that when you return, everything is in the same great state as when you left your previous home.

If you decide to store with someone other than your removalist, you’ll need to research that firm as well. You want a respectable company with high security that will look after your belongings and make sure nothing goes wrong.

That means more research and a greater chance for something to go wrong. When you collaborate with your removalist to provide storage services, on the other hand, you have more peace of mind. You’ve already done your homework to ensure that your removalist will deliver dependable service.

When you let them store your belongings, you’ll have the same peace of mind during the storage process as you did during the relocation.
