How a Moving and Storage Company Can Help When Things Don’t go as Planned04/09/2018Moving items from your home to a new location is one of life's most stressful activities because of all the potential things going wrong. One major stress is when the worst things happen in the middle of your move, causing chaos for the moving strategy you had in place. Things don't have to fall apart if you have a fallback plan. Part of this comes in the type of moving and storage company you hire. What kind of services do they provide to make things more convenient if something unexpected occurs? Take a look at typical things that can occur mid-move and how your mover providing storage helps considerably. Closing on Your Home Pushes Out or Falls Through While you've maybe made headway on moving most items from your old home to your new home, what happens if the closing on your current house suddenly changes? In some cases, this could mean the buyer wanting to wait a little longer to close the deal. Or it could mean the deal falling through due to unforeseen circumstances. All of these scenarios are possible at the midway point of your move. When they occur, it might leave you in a state of chaos in wondering what to do. It could pose a bigger problem if the deal falls apart and you're unsure whether to leave items in your home now or move them out. Or, you could end up with a new buyer who expects you to clean everything out in just a couple of weeks before you’ve had a chance to find a new place. You Can't Find a Temporary Location Maybe you made plans to live in temp housing during your moving transition. How would you handle things if this suddenly became unavailable? Sometimes temporary housing means managers giving priority to those who plan to rent long-term. This could suddenly leave you wondering where you'll place your furniture when you only have two weeks to move everything. Where are you going to go on short notice? Your best bet is to look for some sort of storage facility. Does the moving company you're planning to hire offer such a service? If they don't, it's best to move on to a moving and storage company. Temp storage could cost you more than you think. Some independent storage facilities might have a low monthly rate, but charge extra for things like locks and climate controlled lockers. So, in the end, rental fees could cost you more using an independent storage facility than when integrated into a moving and storage company. Other Circumstances That Disrupt Your Move A lot of other things could happen mid move that you didn't plan for weeks earlier. If moving in the winter, a massive snow or ice storm could hit. It may leave you unable to move things for a week or two, despite a deadline. Other situations could develop like natural disasters or even a family emergency, placing your move in turmoil. To deal with all these issues, you need a moving and storage company to solve your problems.
