Moving abroad can be exciting. Figuring out where you’re going to store your stuff isn’t. In fact, it can be headache-inducing. But, it doesn’t have to be that way. What if you knew that you had access to high quality storage that included insurance for your belongings, so you had peace of mind that your things would be safe for the duration of the time they were in storage? Read on to learn more about short and long term storage offered by your international moving company.

Why Use Short Term Storage?

We’ll use an example to illustrate the benefits of using short term storage offered by your international moving company.

Jack is moving to London, England for work. For the first three months, he knows he’s going to be living in a furnished flat. After that, he’s going to start looking for an unfurnished place, and then he’ll send his shipment over.

In the meantime, Jack has chosen to store his belongings at his moving company’s storage facility. When he’s ready to ship his things, he’ll contact the moving company and the movers will pack the items into containers.

Why did Jack choose to store his goods at the moving company’s facility instead of at a self-storage unit? For a start, the moving company insures his belongings. If he were to keep them in a self-storage unit, those items wouldn’t be insured. Moreover, Jack knows that the storage facility is clean, fireproof, and equipped with a state-of-the-art security system.

Why Use Long Term Storage?

You might be reading this and saying, “Well, I can see where short term storage makes sense. But why would I want to store my stuff long term at the moving company’s facilities? Doesn’t it make more sense in that situation to use self-storage?”

Again, we’ll use an example to illustrate. This time, Jack is living in Australia. He expected to get a work permit fairly quickly, but it’s taken him over a year. Jack didn’t want to ship his belongings over before he had a work permit, because he wouldn’t be able to stay in the country otherwise.

Although the situation is different, the reasons for choosing his moving company’s storage over a self-storage unit are the same. Jack’s belongings are still insured as long as they’re at the moving company, and the movers can quickly prepare them for shipment once Jack contacts them. They’ll be safe in the fireproof, temperature-controlled storage facility, so Jack doesn’t have to worry about them being damaged.
