If you are moving and need to use the storage services of your moving company, it may be that you will be using containerized storage. This type of storage is most often used by those who are moving house.
In most moving company storage facilities the containers are specially designed to hold your household goods; however, they are not the large metal shipping containers that you may be thinking of. They are often large wooden containers that can be placed into a moving truck and can be packed with your household possessions by the movers right outside your door and closed while you watch. Once back at the warehouse the storage company will place all your containers together – you may need several depending upon the size of the house – until you need them to be delivered to your new home.
In this way there is no need for your moving company to access the containers. This type of container storage means that everything is kept clean and there is no chance that your items will go missing.
There are a number of benefits to opting for this type of storage, although you need to be aware that not all moving companies offer it. Containerized storage can be a very cost-effective way to store your goods, even on a long-term basis. Another advantage is that the strength of the container means that your goods are well protected. Being able to supervise the packing of the containers yourself is another benefit, as you have peace of mind knowing that everything is packed and is safe.
