Prepare Your Belongings for Storing in the Best Way Possible
When you start packing, it is best to pack your belongings like they will be stored for some time. Even if this most likely won’t happen, it is better to be safe than sorry. And packing items for storing is not much different than what you would normally do. You should protect each piece in the boxes with high-quality packing supplies and make sure to fill in any hollow space inside. When it comes to protecting your furniture, just make sure not to use plastic and bubble wraps on wood and leather.
And finally, good labeling is a lifesaver not only for your East Coast movers but for your unpacking too. But if you feel like you are not up to the task, you can always hire our team of professionals to help you pack.
Declutter and Know What Items Movers Won’t Move and Store
Good decluttering before any relocation is a smart move. But as you know, some items you will not be allowed to pack due to the security issues and risk of hazardous events. Flammable items, chemicals, and even nail polish are prohibited from transporting on a truck and storing. Also, food and other perishable items are also not allowed for obvious reasons. The best course of action is to donate food to a charity and contact East Coast West Coast Movers for more details.
What You Will Get With This Service?
Once our long-distance movers come to your home to take over your belongings, they will transport them to our storage facilities. Our facilities are equipped with the latest video surveillance technology system, with cameras and a 24/7 security watch. Our professional security team will make sure no theft happens on the premises. Our facilities also have a top-notch climate control system to ensure your belongings aren’t damaged by moisture or heat. And even if we offer our customers basic insurance for every item, some things like memorabilia can not be replaced with money. It is always better to avoid any unnecessary damages from happening.
Why Is It Important to Have Climate-Controlled Storage?
Without a climate control system, your belongings may be exposed to extreme temperatures, and no matter if temperatures are extremely cold or hot, the damages can happen easily. As you know, all thighs expand on heat and shrink in the cold, which can lead to damages. Also, if you are relocating in wintertime and your items are not properly packed to be stored, some fragile items might even break on freezing temperatures. Also, extreme differences in temperatures lead to condensation phenomenon, and if the storage unit is not climate controlled, your boxes may get damaged from moisture and, in the end, break. But with East Coast West Coast Movers, you can rest assured that your belongings will be safe.
We Will Make Sure Your Items Never Get Lost
State-of-the-art modern technology is not strange to our company. We strive to make every move smooth, efficient, and, most importantly, safe. The security of your belongings is one of our top priorities, which is why we have a team of trained professionals who will handle your move from packing to loading and unloading on a truck. And one important link in this chain of actions is labeling your belongings with bar code stickers.
These stickers will be attached to each of your boxes and furniture pieces before we store them in our facilities. All the information about your move, such as name, address of a new location, and delivery date will be presented to the mover once he reads the code. This method has proven really useful and valuable when protecting your belongings from being misplaced by accident. Another reason we use them is to help our movers be more efficient. With the bar code stickers, they will know which box is going where without having to check up the papers all the time.
What Are the Benefits of Storage Facilities?
Picture this. You have packed your entire house. You are waiting for your long-distance moving company truck to arrive when you receive a call from your contractor telling you your new home is not ready for moving in just yet. And that it will not be ready for some time. For this reason, we include storage service free of charge as part of our company’s cross-country moving services. So you can have a place to store your belongings and not look for self-storage units in a state where you haven’t moved yet. The big question is, would you even be able to store your items on such short notice. But we got you covered, and you can rest assured that your belongings will be safe.
Also if you decide to leave your belongings for a whole month in our facilities, you will have more time to go to your new destination and search for better accommodation. Or, to finish in person the paperwork you started long distance. Either way, East Coast West Coast Movers storage services are there to ease your relocation anxiety and any fear you might have for your belongings.
