Moving and storage businesses are common for a very simple reason: these two services often go hand in hand. Because going from one home to another is a complicated process, especially when selling and buying real estate, there are plenty of times when you may be ready to move out, but your home isn't yet ready for you to fully move in. In these situations, a secure location than can store your possessions is valuable. When your moving company can also offer a specialized storage solution that makes delivery easy, it's even better. We're here to offer exactly that with our Storage in Transit program.
What is Storage in Transit?
Storage in Transit offers a solution designed specifically for the needs of people moving from their old home to their new one. This short-term approach to storage allows you to keep some, most or all of your belongings in a secure facility while you wait for your new home to reach a point where it can safely house everything. Because items are boxed, wrapped or otherwise protected as necessary - including special racks for upholstered furniture - you can be sure your possessions will stay safe until it's time to bring them into your new home.
Atlas agents across the country offer Storage in Transit as an additional service that can be added onto a move. Just reach out to your local agent to learn more about this service and how it can help you as you transition from your current home to your new one. If you're looking for a more traditional storage option, many Atlas agents additionally offer clean and secure warehouse space that can be used on a long-term basis.
How does Storage in Transit make moving easier?
There are plenty of reasons why you may not be able to fully move into your new home after you leave your old one. Whether it's waiting for legal processes to play out, finishing renovations or building in a delay due to travel or work obligations, it's easy to find situations where keeping some amount of your belongings in storage can make things easier for you and your family. Storage in Transit makes it easy for you to arrange delivery from dependable, trustworthy movers and packers once the time comes to fully move in. Instead of having to deal with all of the extra work involved in self storage, you can leave the heavy lifting to experienced professionals.
While not everyone will need Storage in Transit - there are still plenty of moves where people go directly from their old home to their new one, after all - but having the option available can be especially helpful. As you plan your next move, keep our storage options in mind. Whether you have to wait an extra week to close on your new home or want to knock down a few walls before moving in, having your belongings ready for delivery makes the process that much easier.
