Advantages of Moving Using Mobile Storage
During a long distance move, it is sometimes necessary to store your things before moving into your new home. There can be many reasons for needing this temporary storage. Perhaps you need time to find a new home in your new city, or maybe your closing date has been delayed or you might want to make some repairs or improvements before your furniture arrives.
No matter what the reason, in-transit storage, as it’s called, is very common in the moving business. What moving companies won’t tell you, however, is that the charges for in-transit storage can be expensive and vary greatly throughout the industry.
Some moving companies charge you $100 to $300 a day for every day that your house isn’t ready – those fees can add up quickly if you’re not ready to take delivery on the exact date that the moving company wants to arrive.
Zippy Shell, however, includes a month of free storage with every long distance move, and the monthly price for storage is less than $200 per container therefore offering a fraction of the cost.
At these rates, you have greater flexibility and time to take final delivery of your storage container without incurring costly storage fees.
More Secure than Traditional Moving Companies
The transportation of a portable storage container offers several advantages over full service moving companies. The most important of these advantages is the handling of your property. Full service moves require the moving companies to handle your things several times during your move.
After loading up their truck with your furniture, traditional movers frequently do not drive directly to your new home.
Instead, they will drive to another customer’s house to load that customer’s property. They sometimes store your things in their warehouse, or even change trucks to consolidate different customers into a single moving van.
In each of these cases, your furniture, boxes, and other things loaded, unloaded, and handled several times and by many different people. It’s no wonder why one third of all interstate moves involve claims for missing or damaged items.
Containerized moves, on the other hand, are not handled in the same way. The portable storage unit that is loaded at your house is locked before it’s taken away. No one enters the unit until it’s delivered to your new home and you take the lock off. This ensures the safety and security of your things during transport.
