Moving can be chaotic, but the chaos is only amplified by a lack of organization and storage. Fortunately, moving some of your belongings into a storage unit can help alleviate these issues. These units have many benefits that could help make your move easier and faster, so here are some things to keep in mind when renting a storage unit for your move:
Self-Storage Offers Free Amenities
Some storage facilities offer free services that can help make it easier to move your items into the unit. These services include dollies and other moving equipment that can protect you and your furniture, while making it easier to move your belongings in and out. Of course, when you hire professional movers, they can also move your items to and from a storage unit. The most trusted professional movers Edmonton has to offer, like Pro Service Moving, will travel to your home and storage unit(s) to pack your things and move them to their new location.
Find a Facility with the Highest Security Standards
Your belongings are important to you, so they should be given the utmost care and security. Look for a storage facility with the highest security standards. These security measures can include: secure, gated access, alarm systems (for the entire facility and the individual units), fire safety systems (smoke detectors, sprinklers, fire resistant units and fire alarms), on-site security and video surveillance. In addition to these standard security features, you should also look for facilities that offer insurance for your items, which protects them from accidental damage.
Explore Your Options
Self-storage units come in all sizes. The unit you choose will depend on your budget and requirements, so assess your needs before searching for a unit. This assessment includes understanding what you can store. For example, food items, animal products, firearms, flammables and other hazardous materials can’t be stored in storage units. Furniture, clothing and many other items can be stored, as long as they’re packed properly. Remember that electronics require special packaging and can be subject to damage when moved or stored.
