If you are getting ready to move in the Minneapolis area, you are probably busy doing research on the best moving options. From hiring full-service movers to renting a moving truck, the options can feel overwhelming. However, have you considered the benefits of moving with a portable storage company such as SMARTBOX of Minneapolis? Whether you are moving just across town or all the way across the country, we offer a variety of services that make moving easier and more convenient. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider using portable storage for your move.

You Can Prepare for Your Move Ahead of Time

The moving process starts well before you even pack that first box. You have to start by selling your current home. Portable storage containers can make it easier than ever to organize and stage your home so you can sell it faster. There’s no doubt that a well staged home is best for faster and more lucrative sales, but staging a home can be difficult if you don’t have a place to store your excess belongings. Portable storage containers offer the perfect solution for storing furniture, artwork, collectibles, and any other belongings you will need to remove from your home to stage it.

Convenient On-Site Storage

For those of you who like to start packing in advance, a portable storage container provides a safe and secure place to store those boxes you pack along the way. Forget about filling your living room or garage with stacks of boxes. With a portable storage container, you can neatly organize your boxes and store them right on-site. This saves you trips back and forth to a storage unit and also provides easy access to your belongings.

Move at Your Own Pace

When you hire professional movers, the clock starts ticking the minute the truck pulls into your driveway. You will likely feel rushed to get everything packed and loaded as quickly as possible. With a portable storage container, you can keep it onsite for as long as you need, giving you the freedom and flexibility to pack at your own pace. Once the storage container is delivered to your new location, you again have the convenience of keeping your container for as long as you need so you unpack at your leisure.

Enjoy Flexibility with Your Move

Renting portable storage containers gives you far more flexibility than a moving truck. Maybe your new home isn’t quite ready or you plan to do some renovations before you move in. Perhaps you will be staying with a family member for a month or so before moving into your new home. Portable storage containers are a great option because they provide a safe and secure place to store your belongings in the meantime. SMARTBOX of Minneapolis offers both long and short-term storage options so you can have peace of mind knowing your belongings are safely stored for as long as you need.
