Moving Tip

We know moving is stressful and emotionally draining, even under the best of circumstances. Moving is considered one of the top three most stressful life transitions. Moving is as hard for kids as it is for adults. Moving is going to cost you, regardless of how you choose to do it. After estimating the cost of wear and tear on your vehicle, the cost of renting a moving van, and the cost of gasoline you may find that moving yourself is more expensive than you thought. Packing materials and moving boxes can be a substantial part of your moving costs. In addition to doing all the work yourself, you will also need to figure in broken items and unexpected trips. A solution that many people use to take advantage of the professional mover's packing expertise and yet not spend too much money, is to pack books, clothes and most of the unbreakable items on their own. One thing to remember is that you can deduct the costs associated with packing up and physically moving your stuff from here to there including truck rentals, moving companies, boxes and so on at tax time. To compare movers in your area it is necessary to get free moving quotes from multiple moving companies.

Storage Access

Storage Access

When you use storage to protect your goods, you want to be able to access them at your convenience. Different self-storage companies have different policies when it comes to accessing your belongings. Before you choose a storage company, ask them what kind of storage access they have. Some storage facilities offer 24 hours, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, access to your belongings. Some storage companies allow storage access only during business hours. 

Some allow you to freely use their carts in order to move your items to and from your storage facility. Finding out what kind of support you get for accessing your stored goods is important. Youíll want to ask whether you have to carry your belongings to and from the storage area yourself, or if the storage facility provides support and what is costs, if anything.

Different storage companies will have various policies about who can have access to your stored items. Some facilities will allow any one who has your key and code to have access to your storage unit. Others have more stringent policies and may require you to forewarn them if you are sending some one else to access your unit. You may even have to give written consent, and your representative may have to show identification before being allowed to enter your storage unit.

Access to your storage unit also includes security. As a rule, reputable storage companies do not allow employees to access your storage unit. However, you should read your contract carefully to see if employees are allowed into your unit in the case of an emergency. When you use a storage facility to store your belongings, you want to be able to access them when itís convenient for you. Make sure that the storage company you choose provides access that fits your needs.
