Most U.S. moving companies also offer storage services for their customers’ convenience. All storage facilities maintain some type of liability coverage, but you should always investigate a company’s policies before signing a contract. By hiring a moving company that maintains their own storage facilities, you can often get liability coverage for all of your possessions under one policy.
The storage facilities offered by most moving companies differ from those offered by public storage companies. Some facilities offer storage units and some offer vaults (wooden crates) for minor storage. In most cases, you will be charged by the volume of your goods. Some companies offer discounts on storage fees and some will pro-rate your fee by the day.
Before choosing a moving company to move and store your goods, investigate the company’s rates and what, if any, discounts they can offer. Each company maintains its own regulations and so it is important that you choose a company that will cater to your individual needs. For instance, some companies will pick up and delivery your stored goods while other companies drop off a crate near your home and require you to move and pack your own storage compartment.
Most in home estimates take less than 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the size of your home, and you will not have any commitment to sign a contract after the home visit is completed, unless you want to. We offer in home estimates free of charge and we highly recommended that you schedule a visit with our relocation consultants before making a final decision.
