Short Term vs. Long Term Storage: What Should You Choose?

Moving Truck

Whether you need to store household objects, sensitive legal documents, or office supplies and furniture, finding the right storage space before a big move is key. You need to find a place you can trust, somewhere that’s clean, and a place that serves your moving needs best.

Preparing for your move in advance can help you check all those boxes! Short- and long-term storage facilities can reduce your stress and help you seamlessly transition from one place to the next.

As a local moving company that offers both short- and long-term storage options, we know just how beneficial they can be. So what storage option is best for you?

Types of Storage to Choose From

The main difference between short- and long-term storage is the length of time you choose to store your items.

Short Term

You need to move out but can’t be in your new place for a few more days. Our solution? Short-term storage! It allows you to keep your belongings locked in our truck—inside our secure facility—then deliver when you’re ready. Plus, we’ll handle all the packing and unpacking so you can have some peace of mind.

Long Term

Going to be between places for a while? Long-term storage spaces are the right option for you. You can store your belongings ahead of time and unpack and move them when you need to, giving you more responsibility and reducing your stress.

And most storage facilities—like ours—will have surveillance, security, and alarm systems that’ll keep your belongings safe from theft or damage.
