There are two storage options available for furniture during moving. These options include renting a unit at a storage facility, or renting a portable storage container that is delivered to your location.
Storage facilities typically rent units on a monthly basis, meaning they can either be used as a relatively short-term solution or be rented for as long as necessary, even a few years. The units come in a variety of sizes, ranging from the size of a closet to a room large enough to contain a full set of furniture. Many of these storage facilities include amenities in their rental fee, such as carts, climate-controlled units and 24-hour security. These features vary depending on the location.
A possible disadvantage to this option is limited business hours to access your rented unit. Portable storage units are delivered and parked on your property and provide a secure, enclosed space for your furniture. These also come in a variety of sizes which can be rented on a weekly or monthly basis. Companies that offer these portable storage units also have warehouses where the container can be moved and stored securely, as well as transportation services if the furniture is being moved to another location entirely.
