Every year, hundreds of thousands of Americans move to new homes across the country and all over the world. As transformative and rejuvenating as it can feel to move into a new house near or far from your old one, moving can be tough on the entire household. For many reasons, planning for a smooth and stress-free relocation is an essential part of the relocation process.

For those who are busy with their daily lives, moving to a new home can mean more work than they currently have the time or energy to handle properly. Hiring professional movers to help you organize a hassle-free moving experience can be vital to the well-being of the entire family, which is why many homeowners opt to choose this route over doing it themselves.

One of the greatest perks of hiring reputable movers to help you with your relocation is the specialized services available. In particular, storage options can provide enormous relief for people moving before, during, and after moving day. At Reliable Van & Storage, we provide short- or long-term storage solutions that can be combined with your residential relocation process. Take a look at how moving coordinators can integrate storage solutions into your next relocation project, to help you enjoy a simple, streamlined moving experience.

Extra Temporary (or Long-Term) Storage Space

If you haven’t had the chance to come up with a systematic plan for placing each of your household items into the new floorplan, a storage unit can help. Storage can buy you time to organize your layout properly to start off on the right foot in your new home.

The advantage of keeping some of your household items in your rented storage facility is that you will be able to move at your own pace. You can accomplish the move gradually and even decide if some of your items will stay in your storage unit for the long-term.

Live Simply, With Fewer Things

Marie Kondo—the Japanese organizing consultant and bestselling author of the book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying—is wildly famous in America for a reason. The reason is that most Americans tend to have too much stuff, which she argues can interfere with our ability to live better. It’s true that it can be very difficult to let go of things we’ve had for ages—even if we never use them at all. Placing these items in storage can help you walk the line between getting rid of these things forever and keeping them unnecessarily.

Once they’re out of sight and packed away in storage, you’ll be able to decide whether you truly need them after all. Chances are, you won’t!

Keep Your Items Free From Damage

Bulky furniture and appliances will take too much space in the truck, and moving them with your other household items can potentially lead to damage. For instance, a sudden stop can shift the boxes around and break the leg of an antique table, or shatter a box filled with wine bottles. By keeping these awkwardly shaped, fragile, and overly large or heavy items in your storage unit, you will be able to keep all of your belongings free from damage during the moving process.

Secure Items During Your Move

Aside from being insured, reliable storage facilities have 24/7 monitoring, tight security measures, and protection from fire and other catastrophes. By using storage solutions, you can be assured that your belongings are secure while you get on with other move-related responsibilities.
