Moving companies can provide a range of services to make your relocation easier, including packing, loading, transporting, and storing items until you're ready to move them to your new home. Most companies include 30 days of storage in their estimate, so you don't have to pay for it separately. You can also opt for long-term storage units if you need to keep your items longer. If you're considering buying a moving and storage container for a local move, the costs vary depending on your area and needs.
On-demand moving services are often more cost-effective and flexible than hiring a local full-service moving company. PODS is a great option for those who need the flexibility of integrated storage for a local or long-distance move. Most moving companies with storage options don't allow access to your items, so make sure you have everything you need before the moving day. You may be responsible for unloading your belongings, organizing them inside the storage unit, and even loading them back into the truck if you store with a company other than the one you're moving to.
You can always go for the “do it yourself” method and pack a moving truck for smaller loads.
