Storage May be Your Solution

May 20th, 2008 - 9:23 AM

I know I'm going; I'm just not sure where yet. 

I mean really, the "where" of moving is just details… right?  But actually, whether you know which city you're moving to and just haven't closed on a house or literally don't know which city you are moving to, you're going to need storage. It's a good idea to check with all of the moving companies you're considering to see how they handle moving and storage – it could end up getting pretty expensive.

Save $200 off your U-Pack Move!

What's the catch?

You just have to prove that you are a master packer and get the highest score on our U-Pack-A-Cube game!

Oh, you've never played it? Well go give it a shot.

I know it sounds silly, but it really is rather addicting. And since it only takes 60 seconds, there is absolutely no commitment involved. My highest score so far is 210, and I was pretty proud of that until one of my coworkers posted a score of 225!  I obviously can't win the prize, but it's still entertaining.

Avoid a moving scam

Verify Dates and Timing

Knowing the exact dates your move will take place (loading, transit, and unloading) is something that may not seem an important detail initially, but it could be!

Is the date the truck will arrive for loading a guaranteed date?
Check for wording on your contract that might indicate that it could be brought to you on a date other than the date you expect it to arrive.

How long will the truck be left at your house for loading?
You want plenty of time to complete your loading, but knowing it will be picked up in a timely manner once loading is complete is important as well.
