Mobile Storage Facilities
If you're in the market for storage
, here's a solution you might not have thought of before: mobile storage. It’s pretty straight-forward. A mobile storage facility delivers a large storage container to your home, you load it with the items you want in storage, and when you’re done, the storage container gets picked up and taken to the company’s storage facility, where you can access it like normal storage. This also means that you don’t have to load or unload a truck to get your belongings into a self storage facility
. Then when you want your belongings back, the mobile storage unit can be delivered to your old house, or a new house that you're moving
Things to consider when using a mobile storage facility:
- If you reside in a condo or apartment you may need approval from building management to have a trailer parked outside, and if you're in a big city, you might have trouble getting access to a unit.
- Rates for mobile storage, just like regular storage, will vary according to location and time of year. Be sure to shop around.
- Ask your insurance agent about coverage for your goods in storage.
- If you live on a steep hill you may not be able to use mobile storage, unless there's a flat, hard surface where the unit can be loaded.
