Moving can be a real stressful time, particularly when it is last minute, so to speak, and more so if moving across the state is involved. To get everything organized and ready for your move, you can feel the scramble. To reduce the scramble and the burdens of the move and to help make the process smoother, there are quite a few resources at your disposal. Organizing your preparations for your sorting and packing can go a long way. Many people overlook utilizing storage options as an aid to make the process of moving your household a lot easier, even more than you may think. With this in mind, we at Prodigy Moving and Storage would like to offer some suggestions as to why storage might provide solutions to moving dilemmas.
Benefits of Storage when Moving
1) Storage Units are Worth It & Can Save Your Money. For most, storage services are nothing more than a wasted and added expense. Whether you hire a pro or rent a truck, you are looking at hourly costs to load the truck. There is wasted time as you pay by the hour, for the crew or your helpers to get everything ready when they come to your home. Once you know the moving date, you can start sorting through your possessions and packing the non-essentials. Instead of having the boxes, extra furniture pieces and other obstacles in the way, you store them as you at a secure storage facility. On moving day, the majority of your items is on site at the storage, where your crew can load the boxes and furniture at the storage and stop by your home in time to pick up the rest, making your hourly pay more efficient. This application of the storage unit, among others, will help save money.
2) Save Time with Storage. Time is often more valuable than money to most. Spending your weekends devoted to packing your things, especially if you are trying to budget your extra time in a short time frame can be almost depressing, especially trying to keep the time shared between work, family, and play, among the responsibilities, balanced. To help free up time for more time better spent, you can start the packing process early and store the boxes and bulky furniture to clear some space, with a convenient storage unit at your disposal. The downsizing process can be more efficient as you have more opportunity to focus on the organizing of one room at a time, minimizing the weight for your move.
3) Storage Reduces Stress. Moving can be especially stressful, particularly long distance moving across the state. It can really take a toll mentally and physically when rushing at the last minute. The anxiety of the initial move as well the chaos of unpacking is expected when you throw everything you own in a scrambled heap in unmarked boxes. You can reduce a lot of the stress before, during, and after the move simply by taking the time and opportunity to pack slowly and methodically. You can take the time to organize your move without the chaos, with the convenience of the storage unit at your fingertips.
