Why People Whose New Houses Are Not Ready For Occupation May Need Moving Storage

You are prepared to move, and all arrangements are due for you to get to your destination. In fact, you have done your de-cluttering and have packed; it’s all systems go to the new state or country. Unfortunately, the house you are supposed to move into is not ready. Some renovation is going on, or the finishing is not yet done. The only option left for you is to look for temporary accommodation and storage for your luggage.

Here’s what doing this does for you:

It gives you time to finish

You definitely cannot have your items stay in the truck for three months. It would be too expensive and they will most likely get spoilt. You need a place where all your items will be safe so you can focus on getting the house ready.

It gives you options

If the house you are to move into is not ready, you have to look for alternate accommodation. It does not make sense to rent out a mansion. You will probably rent out a small apartment where you can put up for a few days. Your luggage will probably not fit there. That is why you need a storage facility.

A-1 Auto Transport can help you move your household goods nationwide. Call 888-241-3110 to get a free, no obligation to buy price quote on interstate moving services.

It saves on cost

Professional moving companies can offer to keep the luggage in the truck for only a few days after which it attracts some charges; sometimes as much as $50 per day. It does not make economic sense to pay the hefty amounts whereas you could find moving storage for a fraction of the cost.

It preserves perishables

Food, fruits, dairy products and all types of vegetables are considered perishable because they have a very short-term expiry date. They are also required to be kept in some specific conditions to avoid getting spoilt. So, if your new house is not ready for occupation, it is advisable for you to get a temporary storage facility, which is fitted with all that you require for preservation.

It keeps your items safe

Your valuables are dear to you aren’t they? Would you want to just drop them in a place where people come and go as they please? With masons, carpenters, plumbers and other workers still on site, the safety of your items cannot be guaranteed not to mention they could easily get damaged. What you need is a facility that has been fitted with the right security apparatus including guards to ensure your items are safe. A storage facility is your best bet.

Whenever you are moving to a new house in another state or country you may find that it is not ready. This could be due to renovations that have taken a while to complete or because it is a new house that’s still under construction. The wet paint and small-scattered fittings all over the place will make it impossible for you to stay there. Let your professional mover help you get the best facility to rent temporarily, as your house gets ready.

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.
