You've finally decided to sell your home and half of the work has been completed when you made contact with a real estate agent to assist you with finding a buyer. The next step that would follow is for you to remove your household furniture and other items from the house preparing it for viewing by buying prospects.
Moving your furniture out of the way would not only eliminate any accidents to them while they are being viewed but it also gives the prospective buyer a chance to envision their own furniture in your home. While you wait for your home to be sold, you can stay with close friends and family while putting your furniture and household items in a portable storage container. Known as a mobile storage container, it's not only a convenient invention for homeowners who may have to store items, but it is also great for businesses that have more inventory than office space and need a place to store them.
Just what are Portable Storage Containers you may ask? Well as stated before, they are containers that consist of a steel frame exterior and wooden interior. Often compared to being a combination of a storage unit and a moving truck. Containers are durable, they are weather resistant and they stand 4 inches above ground level. The height of the unit makes it quite easy to load items on and off.
In addition, there is a roll-up door that would make it easy for you to get in it and out on a regular basis. More and more people are utilizing the mobile storage units for their long distance move and storage. For those who are moving cross-country or across the state, storage containers are the preferred choice because most simply cannot risk having their belongings damaged or get lost. With those units, you get to not only load and unload on your belongings at your own pace but you are also able to place your own padlock on it to further secure your items.
Once you are all packed and ready, your next step would be to contact the local office where a representative will arrange your containers to be loaded onto their trucks and delivered to your home. Because a hydraulic lift is used to get containers into the truck, this eliminates your containers from getting damaged due to falling or tilting accidents. Usually, the total charge is based on the linear feet used and the distance transported.
You can leave your container stored at the office's warehouse for as long as need to and you have the option of storing it either in your local town or in another state where you are likely to move. Proving that it is more than just a moving storage company, some of the companies have recently added another service that would be beneficial to movers.
Entitled Portable Shelter, accommodations for those who either wait for their homes to sell or for people who do not have a place to stay. This emergency shelter can accommodate up to five people and it is available for only a month. At the portable shelter, amenities include a bathroom and kitchen as well as a generator.
How does one get a storage container? You can contact one of your local offices and they could have your container to your door a day later.Written by Margarita Hakobyan
