Before belongings are warehoused for the purpose of storage, it is important to visit the warehouse facility that is being considered. It is very important to inspect the premises beforehand, as the customer needs to feel comfortable with the environment in which their belongings are going to be stored. They also need to make certain that the facility is clean and that the security arrangements are adequate.
Another thing that needs to be checked is precisely how the belongings are going to be stored. How will they be stored on shelves and pallets? Will there be secure wooden containers for the items of furniture? Items that are stored in the warehouse already should also be checked and a note taken of the way in which warehouse operators deal with other people’s belongings during the process of warehousing, as this is a reflection on how someone can expect their own belongings to be handled and stored.
As far as the possessions, it is likely that the customer will be having movers take them there on their behalf. The great majority of moving companies that offer storage facilities, will offer packing and transporting services.
The facility will send out people whose task it is to estimate the unit size required for the belongings that need to be stored in the warehouse. When the issue of cost has been dealt with, the professionals will be able to come and pack and move the belongings into storage
