Yard Storage vs. Moving Storage Facilities

Benefits of using yard storage

Storage services always come in handy in numerous ways. You could be seeking to declutter your home or are planning to go on vacation. Storage providers come through under these circumstances. They provide spaces where you can keep excess stuff. These are things that you wish to retain and might need later.

A house under renovation requires that you keep furniture and other items somewhere safe. The garage could be full leaving no space for additional things. On the other hand, there may arise the need for you to relocate. It might be on short notice, and you do not have time to look for a house. Finding storage for your belongings will give you peace of mind.

Benefits of using yard storage

  • Delivery: In case you need to, moving companies will arrange to deliver a container to your residence. You do not have to hire transport for it. All it takes is for you to provide a forwarding address.
  • Accessibility: Yard storage facilities afford you the convenience of being able to access your things anytime. The box stays on your property during the rental period. The containers are designed to withstand severe weather. Rodents cannot enter and ruin your belongings. Moreover, a specially designed locking mechanism protects the unit from vandalism.
  • Stay with the container: You can keep the yard storage container for as long as you please. In case you wish to continue having those belongings in your compound, there are no restrictions. The provider will only require an additional payment.

Packing Without Pressure

Moving storage benefits

When an urgent need requiring you to move houses on short notice comes up, you could be stranded. However, moving storage facilities provide you with a container to keep your items. It is cheaper than renting a moving truck. Besides, you can stay with the container for a month at no cost. With your items tucked somewhere safe, you can focus on finding living quarters without worries.

  • Packing without pressure: With professionals handling your possessions, you do not have to worry about damage or breakage. Besides, they are highly organized and will cart away your belongings to their facility in no time.
  • Insurance and safety: Majority of the mover companies have insured their worker and services for damages. Once you have your household items in their hands, you are confident that when you finally move, there will be no hitches.
  • Unlimited space: By renting storage services, you tap into an infinite area where all your possessions will fit. The storage mode is unlike moving trucks whose size is a constraint that forces you to leave some things behind. If your items exceed the slot allocated, you have no cause for worry as the mover will provide you with additional room.

Both yard and moving storage facilities have immense benefits. The former gives you convenience. You need no one’s permission to access the container to remove or add something. As for the latter, professional movers assist with packing while also guaranteeing safety. Also, there is sufficient room to store anything you want.

★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

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.
