Whether moving to a new home or relocating your business, there is no doubt about it – moving is a stressful process. With so many necessary components for a successful move, it’s easy to forget any number of pieces to your moving puzzle. One service you don’t want to forget during the planning process, is finding reliable and secure storage facilities. 

Moving and Storage Can Go Hand-in-Glove

Storage is an integral part of the move, be it pre-move, in-transit, or after your relocation. When looking for your NY movers, you want to ensure they are a full-service moving and storage company that can meet all of your relocation needs. Below are the top three reasons you may need short- or long-term storage during your move.

1. Declutter Your Home For a Showing

Staging your home to go on the market is a necessary evil of the selling process. Realtors agree that a home that feels cluttered or cramped not only takes longer to sell but also does not demand top dollar. In order to quickly sell your house for the best price, storing some of your extra items in a moving and storage facility can clear up much needed space. When decluttering, don’t just remove the big items like extra furniture, but take a few minutes to empty out your closets to make sure they aren’t overflowing with items.

2. Store Temporarily During Transition

Despite all of your best efforts in planning, whether relocating your business or your home, there are many times when the closing of one property just can’t happen on the same day as your new place. When this happens, you need a company that offers complete moving and storage services so they can get your items out of one property, store them securely, and then safely deliver them to your new place once you are ready.  

3. Putting Aside Furniture that Doesn’t Fit

Not every move involves a forever location. When that happens, you may have furniture or other items that just don’t fit into your new property but you aren’t ready to part them because they may work in your next location. If this is the case, many professional moving and storage companies offer flexible storage options that will keep your unused furniture and belongings safe for as long as you need.
