Storage Options

I'm closing on the sale of my home on June 18th. I'm not closing on my new home until June 25 and will not gain possession of the new home until 21 days after closing. What are my options as far as storing my items. I have 4 bedroom home and lots of furniture.

For a short-term storage option, you might want to ask your moving company about what facilities they can offer you. Moving companies generally store in their own facilities that are either climate or temperature controlled and have security systems. This option is for people who arenít as concerned about cost as they are about having a professional job done. People who have a lot of boxes or fine furniture, need packing services or those who arenít physically capable or willing to spend the time to handle the job are usually the people who will contract and use moving company storage. Using a moving company, you can expect your furniture to be packed properly, picked up and transported to the facility.

Another option is to hold your belongings at a self storage company. They generally have different size rooms with variable options like climate or temperature control, or outside units (usually not climate or temperature controlled). Be prepared to pack, move and store all the items yourself. The good news is that many self storage facilities have flexible scheduling, starting with two week storage.
