Imagine the scene ‒ you are finishing at college for the summer and need to pack up your room. Do you ship everything home, only to ship it all back again for the start of the new academic year? This is likely to be an expensive and unnecessary procedure, as you will probably have most things you need at home anyway and your college possessions will just sit there until it is time to ship them all back.
It may be more cost effective to make use of moving company storage facilities. The moving company will collect your possessions and put them into its own storage facility until you need them again. The advantages of this are that the storage is local to your college and it is usually far cheaper to store the items than to ship them back to the family home and then back to college again.
Most moving companies have storage facilities of various sizes and you may be able to make use of container storage, pallet storage or rack-style storage, depending upon the amount of items that you want to store. While you are at home you will not necessarily need access to the storage facilities; however, most companies will offer this service if you need it.
Your moving company storage services are not the only services you can make use of. The company will probably be able to provide you with packing boxes and materials, a full collection service, and deliver your possessions back to you at college when you need them – nothing could be easier!
