When my boss told me that I would be moving a lot for work, I didn't really understand what he meant. I thought he would want me to move once every few years, but he really meant that he wanted me to relocate about once every six months or so for the entire rest of the time I worked for the company. Af first I was pretty upset about it, but after a few relocations, I realized that it was actually a great opportunity to see new places and meet new people. I made this blog to create a better moving experience for everyone out there.
If you plan to move, one option you have is renting your own portable storage container. You can put all of your possessions inside and then have them transported to the new place once you finish. Using one of these containers will be a breeze if you remember these tips.
Get Container Sizing Advice
One of the most important things to figure out with a portable storage container is its size. How big does it need to be to support all of your belongings? So that you don't make the mistake of going with the wrong size, consider a recommendation from the container supplier that you rent from.
If they've been in this industry for many years, then they should have a calculated process for figuring out an optimal container size based on the number of items you need to store. Their recommendation will simplify this rental and ultimately help your move go smoothly.
Get Enough Insurance on the Container
While a portable storage container is in your possession, you're responsible for what happens to it. For this reason, make sure you get enough insurance just in case damage happens to it during your move. Maybe you hit one of the doors and cause a dent or you bang into the side on accident.
As long as you have adequate insurance, this type of damage won't cost you anything. You'll thus be able to use said container with more confidence and have a better moving experience as a whole.
Use a Dolly For Convenient Loading and Unloading
If you want to make it a lot easier to use a portable storage container, whether you're loading or unloading items from it, then you'll want to get a dolly. You can buy it or rent one from a supplier. Either way, it's going to make it easy to move multiple boxes at a time.
You can also use this dolly to move heavy furniture and electronics. Just make sure you get one that's heavy-duty, so it can support a lot of weight. Also look for a dolly with off-road tires. They'll help you navigate this dolly around any type of terrain.
If you plan to move on your own, renting a portable storage container is a great idea because it gives you a secure way to transport a lot of items. As long as you use it properly from beginning to end, you won't regret this rental.Share
