There are many benefits to using mobile storage when moving. First, it can save you time and effort. Instead of having to pack and unpack your belongings multiple times, you can simply load them into a storage container and have it delivered to your new home. This can be a huge time-saver, especially if you are moving long distance.
Second, mobile storage can also save you money. Traditional self-storage units can be expensive, especially if you need to rent one for an extended period of time. Mobile storage containers are often much more affordable, making them a great option for budget-minded movers.
Finally, mobile storage can provide peace of mind. Knowing that your belongings are safely stored and out of the way can make the moving process much less stressful. So if you are looking for a convenient, affordable, and stress-free way to move, consider using mobile storage.
Here are some tips for packing and parking your unit:
Furniture and heavy boxes should be placed towards the back of the unit on the bottom. Disassemble furniture and place table and legs, headboards, bed frames, mattresses, dressers and cabinets upright and on the side to open up more floor space. Remember to go vertical with your belongings. Boxes should be stacked high with the heavier ones on the bottom.
Once everything has been loaded, make sure you have used all available space inside your mobile storage unit. Inquire about weight limits for the unit to ensure that your possessions will be moved safely and securely. If you are uncertain of the weight of your belongings simply use a bathroom scale to weigh each item before putting them inside your unit.
Decide where you are going to park your mobile storage unit. Keep in mind that it could be in your driveway for several weeks depending on how long it takes for you to unload your belongings. Choose a spot that will make it easy to access whenever you need to do unloading or just get one or two items.
