Why would you need to look for temporary storage? For instance, the new rental office space may not be fully renovated by the time the movers’ trucks will reach the destination. Or you may not be able to sort out all the details of the new lease, rent new furniture, sign off with the new electricity or gas company and the list goes on. Or maybe your new residential home has not been completely evacuated by the formed tenants or owners. Whatever the case, we can help you find the safest, most reliable storage services that would cater to your every need, be it storage for your residential, commercial or corporate belongings.

What To Expect From A Short Term Storage Facility

  • fully-equipped warehouses and storage rooms for free temporary storage up to 30 days
  • state-of-the-art amenities such as remote monitoring via high-end cameras with movement sensors
  • temperature and humidity control sensors that will help maintain your belongings in the ideal room temperature and air humidity levels. Important papers, client files, furniture or fragile items require extra protection when being stored and the top movers we will recommend will make sure to run that extra mile for you.
  • specialized pick-up and drop-off storage services for fragile and sensitive items at high risk of damage when transported with your other possessions
  • storage for fragile carpeting, bulky kitchen appliances, office supplies and electronics
  • security guard protection and advanced alarm systems for high levels of safety
  • double wrapping, special padding and edge protectors for ideal storage solutions
  • automated inventory and effective object retrieval solutions for fast access to your items 24/7

At times, due to unforeseen moving conditions or other reasons, you may need to prolong storage for your items. This can be easily done with the help of long term storage unit solutions that generally start at 90 days and range from one mover to another, especially in terms of maximum storage time allowed. Make sure you talk to your mover about any long term storage unit needs you may have.

Cheap Temporary Storage Units

While most cross country movers will provide 30-day temporary storage for your items for free, going over that limit may and will usually incur some costs. Also, there may be costs you will need to pay for moving out of storage to your new address. The storage price will depend on the volume of items that you will need to store, as well as the distance from the storage facility to your new destination, any extra fees, tolls, additional padding that might be necessary, unpacking at the new address and so on.

Can a moving company store my items temporarily?

It depends on the mover; some companies exclusively offer specialized moving services such as packing, truck moving, furniture dissembling and reassembling and appliance installation at the new address. These movers do not normally have the necessary space and equipment needed to store your items. However, it is possible for a mover to take some of your belongings and store them into a distinct storage facility, while the rest of the items can be stored inside the house or commercial building. Movers that offer temporary storage solutions can do it for free for up to 30 days, or in exchange for a fee, for more than 30 days up to six months, on average.

Will my clothes get ruined in a temporary storage unit?

When placing clothes inside storage units, a mover will make sure they are accurately protected against any potentially harmful elements that could cause irreparable damage, including high levels of humidity and moisture, heat, bugs and rodents. Opt for a mover that only uses temperature-controlled storage units to further protect your clothes. Try to only use plastic bins for storage, to keep mold and mildew away. See that the boxes can be snapped shut and avoid overpacking, as this will prevent the air from naturally flowing through. Opt for dark plastic bins for temporary storage units for your clothes to prevent fading colors.

What should you never put in storage units?

Never try to store any food, hazardous items and materials, plants, wet items, pets, jewelry, cash, other valuable items or any stolen goods.

How much does a moving company charge for temporary storage?

It depends on the size of the container. On average, temporary storage costs between $100 and $200/month. Lots of top long-distance moving companies include a free 30-day temporary storage option in the moving costs. Make sure you know exactly what to expect beforehand and see if the price estimate includes any free or optional paid storage.

How can I keep pests out of my storage unit?

Poison, mousetraps and bug spray can all be used to keep pests away from your storage unit. You can also spray some peppermint oil and place them inside the boxes and drawers so you can keep critters at bay.

Should I worry about my furniture getting damaged while in storage?

Provided you need to store your furniture for a longer time (more than a few weeks) and there is no climate control option inside the storage unit, you can expect some damage to occur. To prevent it, avoid putting any furniture inside the self-storage unit while still uncovered. Use plastic wrappers, sheets and blankets to cover the furniture pieces and keep the dust and moisture at bay. Avoid using thick plastic covers or else you will risk sealing in the moisture, which will cause the furniture to swell. Drape the material over the sofa, chairs and tables and allow them to breathe.
