benefits of storage

Moving from one home to another can be stressful with having to pack, move and store all of the belongings you have accumulated over the years. As many homeowners come to learn while moving out, you never truly know how much you have until you start packing.

Planning for a smooth and organized move can sometimes require a bit of strategic thinking and planning for the best outcome. This is why it’s important to research the moving companies available in your area and the services they provide, in order to prep for the most efficient relocation according to your options.

Knowing what services are available to you to facilitate an easier relocation is an important part of the planning process. Many of our customers at American Fargo are surprised to learn that self-service storage solutions can be included in your moving plan, which can make your relocation process a whole lot easier. In this article, our expert household movers will explain some of the benefits of storage options and why you might want to consider adding this service to your moving package.

Move at Your Own Pace

Utilizing a storage facility can help you move items out of your home weeks or months prior to your actual moving date. This can help declutter your space to make moving your more important items into your new home first an easier task to handle. It can also be a great way to store things on moving day that don’t have a place in your new home.

Keeps Your Belongings Safe

Break-ins and robberies often happen during relocation. Thieves know that there are sometimes delays that keep homeowners from moving all of their belongings at once, which is why they target people moving and keep an eye out for empty homes filled with boxes. If you’re having to move out early or are behind schedule, you may want to place items in storage until you’re able to move with them. This can keep your items safe and sound and eliminate the possibility of theft.

All storage solutions offered by American Fargo are guaranteed to keep your belongings safe and secure. Our storage facilities are equipped with 24-hour surveillance, sprinklers, fire and theft protection, and are monitored by a security company. This allows you to keep your belongings safe at all times without worrying about them being lost or stolen.

Safer Selling of Your Items

Many people take the opportunity to sell their unwanted items before a move, but the sale doesn’t always happen quickly. To avoid having to settle on a lower price for your goods, consider placing them in a storage unit until they’re sold. Storage facilities can also serve as a safe and neutral spot to do business in lieu of the home—especially when meeting prospective buyers (strangers) from the internet or classifieds.

Types of Storage Options

If you’re considering storage solutions before your next move, you’ll need to know the different kinds of services provided by most moving and storage companies in your area. Take a look at some of the options we provide at American Fargo that make moving easier on everyone involved:

  • Self-Storage: The first type of storage option that you can choose from is a self-service storage unit. This is usually found in the form of a garage-style unit available in a variety of sizes according to your needs. Self-storage units are easy-to-use, budget-friendly, and are safe and secure.
  • Full Service Moving and Storage: If you need help loading or moving your items into a storage unit, a full-service moving and storage company will provide door-to-door pick-up and delivery of your items. American Fargo’s moving team will help move your unneeded items to a secure storage facility that you’ll be able to access at any time.
  • Commercial Storage: If you’re storing items for your business, such as office equipment, heavy machinery, furniture, and other items, commercial storage options are available. This can be an ideal option for business owners that need to clear space temporarily or on a long-term basis, or during a commercial relocation.
