Removals and storage companies are some of the best things since sliced bread. The invention of building a place where you can keep your belongings safe during your house move is amazing. A lot of people worry about where they will keep their possessions. Often, your new place isn't ready and you're left wondering as to how to move without your belongings. It can definitely help if you have friends or family in the local vicinity to keep your stuff for a little while, however, if you will be longer as well as moving into a completely new city, a storage option is always the best.

So what exactly is a storage company and how does it work? Most storage companies (from the inside) are actually like warehouses. They have their own compartments, to which you are given access to a 24 pin code system that enables you to enter the building at any time as well as a lock and a key. Depending on the number of belongings that you need to store, you will find that you can be given a bigger or a smaller area. When it comes to price, a lot of companies offer amazing rates for the first month — which can save you a lot on your house move. You can bypass using a removal van for your belongings as if you have access to a car, it works wonders. All you need to do is take your stuff, put it in the lockup and then take it out when you are ready. It may seem a little long winded, however, you can save a tonne of money instantly.


Storage company facilities have moving facilities such as cardboard boxes as well as crates. Most companies are aware that you will need either one or both, in order to help you physically shift the belongings into your office or your house. They also offer green eco-friendly services especially things like crates that are able to be used repeatedly and eventually recycled. Storage companies are lifesavers when it comes to international removals because chances are that your stuff will get there before you do. Often it is sent as a consignment or through major cargo, so you know that even if it gets there before you do, it is safe.
