Advantages And Disadvantages Of Portable Storage Containers During A Home Move

Are you in the process of moving homes and considering using portable storage containers? They are an option that's growing in popularity over the more traditional route of hiring out a truck. To figure out if portable storage containers are the right choice for you, consider their advantages and disadvantages.

Advantages Of Portable Storage Containers

Moving can be a stressful process, however, portable storage containers can help alleviate some of that stress. Consider the following points to find out why:

  • Work at your own pace: Typically, when a moving truck arrives, there is a frantic rush to get everything inside and then back out again at the new address. During this rush, you might break or forget something. However, if you opt for a portable container, then it can be stored alongside your home for as long as you like. This gives you the opportunity to transfer your personal belongings and furniture into the container at your own convenience. 
  • Ground level: Storage containers will be placed at ground level. Therefore, heavy furniture does not need to be lifted off the ground to transfer it into the container. On the other hand, to transfer furniture into a moving truck, you will have to lift the furniture. This could prove to be too difficult to handle on your own. Consequently, you'll need to hire movers, which will add to the cost of the move.
  • Unclutter your new home: If you feel that some of the furniture at your old home is not suitable for your new one, then you can use the containers as storage. They will be stored in a warehouse, and you can access them whenever you like.

Disadvantages Of Portable Storage Containers

Even though portable storage containers are a great idea, there are some reasons why they could be problematic:

  • No space for placement: If you have a front garden with a beautiful flower bed, then you will not want a storage container to squash all that. Also, if there are no spots on the road for the container, then it means you will have to opt for a moving truck. Keep in mind that there must be space for the container, and access for the truck that will be offloading the container.
  • Damage: When containers are being loaded and offloaded from the truck, there is a chance of your property getting damaged. Therefore, you will have to place everything inside the container with extra care and padding.

Keeping this information in mind can help you decide if storage containers are the right option for you move, but if you need more information, you can always contact a mobile storage company in your area. 

About Me

My Functional Yet Space-Saving Home Office Furniture

Setting up a home office in my spare room enabled me to work from home. The problem was finding a way to maximize the space I had. I need to choose office furniture that would be functional yet space-saving. I chose a corner work station that included a combination computer desk with attached hutch. This gave me the ability to do computer work and store necessary supplies, without taking up a lot of room. A metal filing cabinet on wheels allows me the portability to store the cabinet in my walk-in closet when not in use. I purchased all my office furniture used, saving me money as well as storage space. Even in the smallest of rooms, working at home can be comfortable and affordable, if you're a savvy shopper.
