If you are going away for the long term and need the households to be kept in an affirmative protective facility, the best choice under such a situation is to opt for containerized storage. What do you get from this? Containerized storage service offers you large wooden blocks in which all the packed belongings are loaded. The company will send its truck at your doorstep. The man with a van will take care of all the items you want to be preserved in the furnished containers. The materials will be packed and loaded before your eyes as to provide complete surveillance, and after loading the truck will leave for the warehouse where these containers are stored for a period till you reclaim back the items.
Usually, there are two types of containers. The first is used widely throughout the removals and storage industry as is based on the dimension to house a 250 cubic feet space, a standard 7.5-ton removals truck can be set up to hold 3 of these containers, whilst larger trucks can house between 5-6 containers on one journey. Special trailers can be added that can carry an additional 1-2 containers for larger moves and longer journeys. Whereas, the other type of containers has wider dimensions and can be as large as to house 300 cubic feet space. These containers are most likely to be used during the removals however, under certain situations they are also utilized for storage purposes as well. They offer a benefit in terms of housing space. Since they are huge, hence, only a few boxes can be enough to cover up all the things. Moreover, they are also preferred over the small ones, because they offer an advantage for the load-bearing capacity of the man. Only a few containers do not put much load over the truck whereas, in case of small containers the load may breach the capacity of a van. On the other hand, they also pose a disadvantage in the case of too many materials. Since few containers can be adjusted in the van, so to tackle an excess of materials, more trips are required by the man with a van.
- Containerized storage is the best opportunity to save your cost and get a stress-free job done.
- Using containers, the risk of any accidental damages during loading, transporting, and unloading is much lessened as compared to the formal method of picking up the goods.
- Containers provide a fine service for long term solutions
- Goods are secured in a safe, secure, and dry environment.
- The belongings also remain free of dust because of the closed seal.
- Fork lifters load the wooden containers on the removal truck and provide an advantage to pick up all the things from your doorstep. Although they are sealed, upon the client’s request, they can be opened to provide access even during the storing period.
The cost can vary depending upon several factors. There will be a difference from company to company. However, certain parameters can help you calculate the real and cheap estimate to hire removals or storage company.
- Most of the companies offer a monthly bill, which means even if you store the things for mere days, you would pay a month’s cost. You won’t want that. Therefore, be clear for how much time you require the facility, and once you decide, search for the companies which help your billing accordingly. A weekly billing is well suited than the monthly package.
- Be precise about the size of your belongings which you want to store. Do not rush to include the clutter as well. Make an inventory list to separate the immediately required, lately required, and not required items. This is because it would be a terrible waste of money to store the things which are going to throw away afterward.
- Once you decided the size of your baggage, check out the size of the to be allotted store unit. The store space must be as vast to keep all your things at a time. Do not be trapped into a sales pitch, and make a physical inspection of the unit. This is important because once you have paid for a unit, and it is not enough for your load, you would have to pay an extra price for upgrading the storage unit space.
- Make a proper estimate before going for a discount deal. You may be tempted by the discounts a moving company may offer, yet the overall cost may get double or triple. This is because, usually, you plan for a certain period to store the things, however, most of the time people store more than expected time. In such cases, the initial discount may be canceled by later add up prices.
- No matter, how much secure a facility is, you must go for insurance of the things you are going to store.
- Deciding the terms, make sure, how much amount can you claim back.
- The best practice is to hire the same company for removals as well as storing the items. This will not only save your time and effort, but you will also be able to save the cost.
- Check-out the condition of facility, unit, and surveillance to be sure of what you are paying for.
