Are you thinking about taking a job offer across the country? Are you unsure whether this position will be permanent or if you'll be moving back after a few months to a year? If you are going to be moving temporarily, you may not want to spend a lot of money to move your belongings such a long distance. On the other hand, you probably have things that you wouldn't want to part with if your move turns out to be a permanent one.
Until relatively recently, your only choice may have been to get friends or family to ship things to you if it turned out that you were going to be staying put. But there is another option in the form of using a mobile storage company. If you've never heard of this or why you'd want it, here are some advantages:
Delivered to your home: Unlike a self-storage room at a storage facility, a mobile storage company will drop a large container off in front of your home. You can then fill it at your leisure. For instance, you can pack things into the storage container while your child is sleeping or while you are preparing dinner. If your schedule is already packed with things to do, this gives you more time than if you were to drive to a self-storage facility.
Assorted sizes: Not all mobile storage solutions are alike. You may have seen one mobile storage company that offered tiny storage containers and you need to pack up a large house or maybe you've only seen large containers and you live in a relatively small apartment. There are even companies that offer multiple sizes. Whatever it is that you need to move, you're likely to be able to find a solution that works right for you.
No destination necessary: You may be concerned about using a mobile storage company because you aren't sure when or if you'll need your belongings shipped across the country. However, you need not make a decision right now. The storage company will store your belongings local to where they were packed. If you want them delivered to another state, they can do that. Or if you move back to the same city, you can have your stuff delivered to your new home. This also makes this storage solution ideal for people who plan to travel before deciding exactly where they're going to be living next.
