Storage and moving go hand in hand. In real estate markets in Atlanta, GA, Charlotte, NC, and Winston-Salem, NC, where our offices are located, most of our customers need to utilize storage before, during, and after a move. As real estate becomes more competitive, homes need to be market-friendly the day they hit the market. Having your home perfectly staged and presentable by having items in storage, allows your home to be better positioned for a quick sale.

NetMOVE’s Approach to Storage and Moving:

In a perfect world, you would be able to time your move so that your new home is ready the same day you move out of your old one, but with leases having ending dates and closing dates often being out of your control, this doesn’t always happen. What can you do with your stuff if you’re stuck between homes for a few days or weeks? Hotels or a friend’s living room can give you a place to stay, but you won’t be able to bring your stuff with you. The solution to this common dilemma is self-storage. At NetMOVE, Inc we have multiple self-storage solutions that can help you transition to your new home.

Know What to Put in Storage

First, consider the best items to put into self-storage between moves. Some of the items that work well include:

  • Furniture
  • Home decor
  • Large or small appliances
  • Lawn equipment
  • Clothing that’s the wrong season
  • Toys and other entertainment items you can live without

Consider where you will be staying between your homes, and make sure you bring with you what you truly need, but if you can find furnished lodging you can stash quite a bit of your stuff.

Know What Not to Put in Storage

While it may be tempting to just box it all up and stash it in storage, there are certain items you will need, even in your temporary living arrangement. Some items you will want to keep around you include:

  • Clothing for this season
  • Food that could go bad
  • Kitchen supplies
  • Electronics
  • Toiletries

Whittle these down to the bare essentials, but keep them handy if you are going to need them.

Consider the Length of Time

Next, consider how long you will be in temporary housing. You may not know, but you may have an idea of when your new home will be ready. This will guide how much you can afford to put in self-storage and what you need to keep with you.

Consider the Accessibility

Will you need access to your items? If you are in your temporary housing for a while, accessibility can be important. Choose a self-storage option that will keep your things accessible. With our storage options, most of our clients choose to have a mobile storage unit at their home. Items can be instantly accessible without having to drive across town. When you’re ready for your move, we can transport your portable storage unit to your home or into short-term storage while you wait to close on your new home. Self storage is simple with NetMOVE, Inc.

Moving is a stressful experience, and when you have stuff that doesn’t have a home, it can become even more so. Using a self-storage facility to stash some of that stuff can reduce the stress and give you peace of mind that your belongings are safe while you are in transition. Find a convenient self-storage option, and use it as a tool while you move to your new home.
