Tips For Hiring Portable Storage For Waterloo House Removals
Published on Tuesday, 22 January 2013
Portable storage units are one of the most recent developments in the transport and storage industry, and are being hailed as the perfect solution for people seeking temporary storage options for their belongings. If you are in the middle of a house removal or a corporate removal and need a place to keep all your things until you can shift them to the new house/ office, a portable storage unit might be the just the thing for you.If you are wondering how portable storage units are different from the conventional self-storage units that have been around for a while now, the answer is rather obvious: portable storage units are movable. This means that they can be delivered to your home, transported and taken along anywhere you want, sent back to the storage facility for safekeeping and delivered to your new place whenever you want. If you’re looking for a temporary storage unit for your Waterloo house move, a portable storage unit could be the perfect option. This article contains some excellent tips for hiring portable storage units so that when you do move between two addresses, the process is as smooth and trouble-free as possible. Since portable storage units are a comparatively recent industry sector, not many transport and storage companies have incorporated the option just yet. Which means you might not be able to find a portable storage service as easily as you can find a self-storage unit. Your best option, thus, would be to search for service providers on the Internet. Narrow your search down by city, postal code and budget so that you only get listings for companies that meet your requirements. If a well-known storage company is offering portable storage services, choose them over others. You might be paying more, but since the niche is a relatively new one, it pays to work with someone who has an established reputation in the sector. Between an average company and a reputable company offering the same new service, you will always be better off with the latter because even if they haven’t made a mark in the niche as yet, they are respected for their business ethic and quality service on the whole. Before you make the decision to rent a portable storage unit, get all your dates and timings fixed, down to the very last detail. A portable storage unit will be rented out on the basis of the size of the unit, but some companies also rent them out according to the number of days the client needs the unit for. Either way, you will need to know the exact dates because you cannot have a contract without these.Always give the rental company at least a week’s notice because most companies will need at least three days before they can have a storage unit delivered to you. And that is only if they have vacant units available. The company will have to make a unit available for you, reserve it for you and finally have it delivered to you. This process can take quite a bit of time, and waiting until the last minute to make a booking will jeopardise your plans. Portable storage containers are available in a variety of sizes. Do not rent out any random unit simply because you haven’t had the time to research the different options available. Since the size of these containers is one of the determinants of the price, you need to put a lot of thought into the same. If you don’t have a lot of luggage, why pay for a large portable unit? Likewise, if you pick too small a unit, you won’t have enough space for all your things. It is important to rent a storage unit that meets your requirements, both in terms of space and cost.
