Storing Your Valuables: What You Need To Know

Whether you’re moving closeby or to another country, you will likely need to put your storage somewhere in the meantime. Whether short term or long term, storage services are great for those looking to move internationally who don’t want to lose treasured items, those who have too many things but don’t want to get rid of them, or those who are building a home and need their stuff stored elsewhere before they can begin moving it in.

Regardless of the reason, it is important that you know everything there is to know about storing services so you can better decide if it is the right thing for you. Here at Augusta Movers, we have come up with a detailed guide about storage services, how they work, and the benefits they provide.

What Does This Mean?

When the word “storage” is mentioned, we are not talking about some dusty old room — we are instead talking about high grade, tightly secured storage facilities, specifically made to hold your most valuable items safely. Round the clock security is commonly implemented in these areas, so you can sit back and relax knowing your most important items are being held safe by experienced professionals. 

Are They Right For My Move?

People will most commonly use storage services when they are moving to a temporary residence. If you happen to be moving across the country/to another country temporarily and you want to keep your other belongings from your other place safe while you’re gone, usually storage services are your best bet.

Another situation in which people use these services (like we previously mentioned), is when your new home needs to be decorated/renovated/built, and you need a place to put your belongings from your old home while the work on your new home gets done. If you are dealing with this situation or the previous one, storage services are the best decision for your needs, and helps alleviate a lot of the stress you’d feel without them.

What Can You Put Into Storage Units?

This answer is a lot more complicated to answer as there is no single answer to it. This answer will entirely depend on the company you decide to work with, but there are general items that most companies will always allow. Stuff like large furniture items, appliances such as fridges and freezers, and books/art can all be put into storage units with ease. It is important, however, to mention that fridges or freezers with food inside are NOT permitted. Matter of fact, any food items are prohibited from storage units as they spoil and can ruin a storage unit and its items. It will also create problems for future customers who decide to use the unit. Any hazardous items such as alcohol, compressed gas, fertilizer, paints, etc. can not be placed inside, due to the potential of mould, corrosive risk and risk of explosion.
