When trying to plan and structure a move, you may be wondering whether or not it is a good idea to hire a storage unit? There is undoubtedly a list of pros and cons for doing this, so to help you make the right decision for your situation Bill Removalists, the most efficient removalists in Western Sydney, have detailed them here for you.
A storage facility is a low-cost way to store your belongings for a short, or long, amount of time. They are secure and offer units of varying sizes and costs. Read on to consider some elements that will hopefully help you decide if a storage facility is right for you.
When it comes to keeping your belongings safe and protected from the weather, you cannot go past a storage facility. Some companies even offer insurance for out-of-the-ordinary circumstances. You have the freedom to access your belongings whenever you want, making the facility like your own, external garage (also handy for those who live if in a small apartment).
Storage units can be rented for an unlimited amount of time, and most companies offer a discount if you sign for an extended period. If you are looking at a short-term relocation, storage units are an easy, inexpensive option perfect for those in-between move times that didn’t quite line up. In most cases, the smallest amount of time required for a storage unit is 30 days.
One thing people forget when budgeting their move is that the cost of transporting belongings to the storage unit is not included in the rental price. This means you’ll still need to engage a moving company or find a full-service moving group who provide a deal on self-storage units.
Some people feel a little uncomfortable about leaving their belongings in a space that they aren’t close to all the time. While this fear can possibly be eased by the fact that most storage facilities have surveillance cameras, alarms and other safety precautions, it can still be unnerving leaving your tings there.
If you are moving interstate and leaving most of your belongings in a storage facility, nothing is more annoying than realising you’ve left something behind. Plus there is the hassle of digging through boxes to find it.
Finally, unless you are paying more for a temperature-controlled unit, the cold and heat may have an effect on the items you store. Do not, for example, store your precious vinyl record collection in a container through the heat of summer. Some things can expand and contract with temperature, so consider leaving any sensitive items out of the unit.
