Hand in Hand with Moving and Storage
If you have sold your house and have not yet purchased a new one, you would require the services of a storage facility. You should consider where you are going to store your household items before you purchase your new home. You should carefully plan your storage unit till you get your new house in order where you can move your things to. If you have not planned a storage unit for yourself, there is no need to panic.
Most of the moving companies today also provide us with storage facilities. The customers who do not yet have a new home to put their articles in can make use of such storage facilities. The process is very simple. You can enquire with your local movers about the storage facilities that they offer and choose between the various options given which would suit your need.
Normally, any moving or storage contact would start with a quote. The Chicago movers will quote you a rate for moving your articles from your home to the desired destination. If you are in need of storage facilities, you should inform the movers as early as possible. This is because all the movers will not have enormous amounts of free space all the time.
Instead they would fix you a slot and a timeframe till which you can store your articles with them. This slot and timeframe is not free all the time. Therefore you should tell them as soon as possible that you require storage facilities. There are different companies that provide different facilities. Also these companies will have their own rate quote.
It is always better to compare the rates of two or more companies before arriving at the decision of which company to go with. Not only will this get you better service but also better facilities and generally a better deal. You should not only consider the cost of the services that are offered but also the reputation of the company. There is nothing more important in the moving business than the reputation of the company. After all, you are entrusting to the company articles of your household that might even be irreplaceable. Therefore you need to ensure that you are placing all your house hold items in good hands.
A reputed company that has been in the business for a long time is always better than a new company that comes up with competitive rates. This is because an old company will have the experience of being in the market for a long time and handling all unexpected situations and problems that can come up while moving.
Every moving and storage would also include cataloging. All your belongings will be marked and placed in the respective boxes and an itenary would be made out of them. This way, at the destination point, you can make sure that all your belongings are safe and in order. Also many of these companies offer moving insurance that will take care of any damage that might occur during the process of moving.
