Whether you’re relocating for a promising new job opportunity, downsizing into a smaller home, or something else, moving can be as overwhelming as it is exciting. Before you get to enjoy the excitement of living in a new home, however, you’ll first need to overcome the obstacles of the moving process itself—which is a long, intensive project that requires plenty of planning and a seemingly endless list of tasks to complete.

If you are too busy to plan a complete move, or simply want to ease the burden that comes with relocation, a trustworthy moving and storage company can help. While you’ve heard how professional packers and movers help with the packing, crating, and transportation of your household items, moving and storage providers can also make your move easier by offering convenient storage solutions to aid in the process.

Many of our customers at Prestige Moving & Storage are surprised to find out that we offer storage solutions as a part of our comprehensive range of premium moving services. We know how helpful it can be for movers to take advantage of storage units before, during, and after their relocations. That’s why we’ve compiled this list of top benefits our customers enjoy when integrating our state-of-the-art storage solutions with residential moving projects.

Streamline Your Space With Additional Storage

When moving to a new home, decluttering is a top priority. Disposing of, selling, or donating certain household items that you no longer need can be therapeutic and necessary to the idea of starting out fresh. However, even after decluttering, you may find yourself with far too many things to bring in your new home, especially if your new layout is smaller than your last one.

For a smoother moving process, moving experts recommended that you already have an idea on where to put each of your appliance, furniture, and household item in your new home. If you don’t have the time to create a systematic plan for integrating your items into the new layout, a storage unit can be useful by allowing you to store some non-essential items temporarily while you organize your new home.

The best thing about storing some of your belongings in a warehouse facility is that you will be given extra time to arrange your furniture in the most optimal way, instead of rushing to get settled as quickly as possible.

Protect Your Items During Relocation

When you jam everything into a moving truck at once, your items and furniture might be susceptible to a higher risk of damage—especially when the vehicle suddenly stops or makes a turn. No matter how careful the driver is, when the boxes in the truck shifts around, valuable things such as artwork, wine, fragile items, and antique furniture may accidentally become damaged. Storage options can protect your larger or heavier items, creating extra space in the moving truck and a lowered risk of damage to your belongings during the move.

Flexible and Secure Storage Facilities

Reliable moving and storage companies offer fire- and theft-protected, climate-controlled storage facilities that are monitored 24 hours, seven days a week. Knowing that your items are well-protected and cared for can mean peace-of-mind for people moving on a rushed timeline and a less stressful moving experience that moves along at a personalized pace.
