Different Types Of Moving Storage Facilities: Crate Storage, Pod Storage, Container Storage And Mini Storage

You will agree with me that moving storage is a necessity for all those who wish to move. International moving has become big business mainly due to the opening up of global links to business and work. Anyone can work anywhere in the world, and millions of people are moving around the globe to different cities, for work, business and even for tourism. All these calls for the storage of their valuables as they move and the storage facilities vary depending on the size, weight, and fragility of the items.

Below are the different types of storage facilities available:

Crate storage

For a long time, Plastics were considered the best storage when moving because they are cheap and readily available. But this has now changed. Wooden crates are becoming common due to their durability and the safety they offer items in terms of regulating moisture content.

PODS storage

PODS are containers rightly designed to accommodate any time of items that you could be moving. You want to keep your electronics; computers, phones, or business stock and even personal items; this is the thing for you. They are fitted with sturdy doors so that in case of attempted theft, it will not be easily broken into. They are portable and many people who are moving prefer it because it is easy to push it to wherever you want. This means you get to save on the cost of loading and offloading especially because the PODS can be placed anywhere, including your lawn. When you want to store your goods in-between moves, this is the best option.

Container storage

Many moving companies prefer containers for their shipping storage. These vessels are well designed to ensure that whatever you store in them remains well protected from water or even fire. In fact, you could hire this cheaply and negotiate with the moving company on other costs like hauling. They are designed in different sizes and for different purposes. When moving perishables, you must insist on the conditioned ones which are more costly to hire than the ordinary ones-but it is worth it. With these containers, you don’t need to hire a store because you can keep it at the verandah of your house. You can then start unpacking bit-by-bit as you set-up your home.

Mini storage

Whether you are an individual and would like to ship your construction materials or you are a businessperson and would want to move your stock; clothes, vehicle and machine spares and anything collapsible, minis storage will work for you. This is a type of container designed to offer storage for you as you move. It is properly sealed which makes it water and dust proof. Its doors and locks are profoundly defined to assure maximum security.

Choosing a storage facility will depend on what you are moving and your expectations regarding safety. Before you hire your moving storage facility, get to assess the size and fragility of your luggage.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
