You might consider that you won’t need storage services at any point in your life. But as you’re moving abroad, looking at all the bulky and heavy furniture and other stuff around you has got you wondering if storing will be a life savior. Many companies offer to store your stuff, but there’s a reason (or several) why many clients choose our company for that service. From the purpose behind storing to its many benefits, let’s see why you should choose this type of service.
Our country is a vast place, and it’s only natural that our self-storage space is shockingly huge, too. Combined, these units are over 2.3 billion square feet, and that’s about three times the size of Manhattan island. The companies that own these facilities are spread over 40,000 business locations.
On the other hand, the square footage of our houses has doubled over the course of the last 50 years and is now about 2,300 on average. Still, one thing remained constant – even though we have more space in our residences, our need for storing things outside of our homes has stayed the same. We use it to stash the possessions we no longer use or use occasionally but don’t want to clutter our households.
An international moving company such as Sunset International Shipping is a partner we need to relocate abroad. But besides providing you with the usual moving services, such as packing, overseas shipping, and auto transport, our movers will provide you with storage service. That comes in handy when you have a lot of stuff you don’t want to part with, but neither want to drag it to the other part of the world.
Nothing says a company cares for your satisfaction like a giveaway of something for free. Besides giving you a free quote (a general one when you contact us and a more accurate one when you give us an inventory list,) our units also come for free under certain conditions. If you have decided to pick us for your extraordinary life event that is relocating abroad, storage service is at your disposal for free for the first 30 days.
Thirty days for free is quite a feat, isn’t it? After that initial month, you can decide for our overseas shipping company movers to either deliver your goods or leave them for a little while longer. If you want to leave your possessions with us, we will start charging by the day. Want us to ship your stuff after these 30 days? No problem and a month is usually enough time for you to get settled in your brand new and unknown place.
We at Sunset International Shipping work really hard to make each relocation an ultimate experience for our customers. But to bring a wide smile to your face, we also provide some stress relievers. Wondering what it is? It’s the guarantee that your possessions will be more than safe while in our hands because security is one of our top priorities:
For the additional feeling of security, your chosen type of insurance (mandatory or Full Value) continues to apply for all the goods we store in our facilities.
No shipping overseas can be done with just a handful of possessions packed nor without leaving something behind. You certainly won’t ship that old grandma’s dresser or your children’s artwork and art supplies with you, but instead, probably leave them in our units. But like with any other storage, to ensure everything stays intact, there are specific packing rules to follow.
First of all, everything should be boxed up in the best possible packing supplies available. Sturdy boxes, bubble wrap, and furniture blankets are a must. For additional insurance, you should thoroughly clean, and above all, dry each object you want to be stored. If this is too much work for you, bundle up our packing service, too. Our vetted movers will bring the best packing supplies out there, and wrap everything up in a jiffy, including disassembling bulky furniture. This way, you’ll be positive that each object you store will stay intact.
We take pride in what we do best, and what our movers do best is all things related to moving. When you shop around for the best international movers out there, our name is sure to pop up. Among all the other conveniences we bring to your move, our storage units are definitely that one thing you’re missing to have a smooth transition. Focus on your new life while our movers take care of everything else.
Moving can be tough. That’s why we provide 30 days of free storage to make it easier.Learn more about storage »
