Moving can be an incredible time for your family to make a fresh start in a brand-new environment. However, a messy, disorganized moving experience can complicate your experience and make your adjustment more difficult than it should be. 

At Winnipeg Moving, we customize your move to suit your exact needs and budget, with swift, expert solutions that make the process a breeze. Among the many services we provide for our customers, our storage solutions are often the perfect answer to solving some of our customer’s most challenging problems during relocation. 

Storage can be useful in a number of circumstances and can come with many surprisingly convenient benefits that can help you and your family start off on the right foot after a move. Take a look at some of the benefits of combining moving and storage services while relocating and get prepared for an easier, more streamlined experience.

Temporary Storage Solutions for Moving Success

Storage is a useful service for long-term and short-term purposes. When incorporated into a moving project in a strategic way, both short-term and long-term storage solutions can help you save time and money during the moving process. Here are some of the benefits of using storage during a move:

  • Lighten Your Load Before Moving: Short-term storage solutions can help to get organized before a move to facilitate an easier packing experience. If you’re selling some of your items, or unsure about whether you want to keep them or not, separating them from the rest of your load before packing up can help a lot. If nothing else, fewer boxes make for easier navigation when transporting the couch to the moving truck.

  • Gain Peace of Mind: Move-in and move-out dates can sometimes change at the last minute, or travel delays can threaten to throw your move off-schedule. If there are delays during a move, which there sometimes are, you can place your items in a safe, secure storage unit until you need them. 

  • Allows You to Take Inventory: One thing storage does is help you actually see how much stuff you really have and more importantly, how much space you’ll need to keep your items in a new home. By using storage now, you can better coordinate where everything will fit in the new home. 

  • Safer Selling: Many homeowners sell their belongings before moving, listing them on garage sale apps, social media pages, or websites. If you’re not keen on the idea of having strangers come to see your item at your home, a storage unit is a safe, secure, and neutral place to bring potential customers to see your item.

Make Storage Work for You

The best news for homeowners is that storage is not a one-size-fits-all type of service. At Winnipeg Moving, our household movers will help you customize your moving plan and storage preferences to select the options that work best for your needs and budget. Some of the most common choices include:

  • Budget-Friendly: For those with a modest budget, self-service storage is a popular and useful choice. Plus, this affordable option gives you complete control of the storage unit and how it’s used. Keep in mind that with this option, you are responsible for loading and unloading the unit.
  • Moving Containers: These are lockable units that are usually delivered and placed in the driveway of your home for you to load with your belongings. The company that provides the container will transport the unit to the new home as soon as you’re ready. 
  • Full-Service Storage: By far, this is the best option when it comes to assistance and flexibility. Full-service movers offer storage solutions for both short and long term needs, which can include door-to-door delivery, loading, unloading, set-up and assembly, and other options.
