Sofas, couches and beds are all very large items that can be very expensive to ship. We aren’t talking about renting a U-Haul and driving to another state. But for those jetting away across un-driveable distances. The easiest way to go about this problem is to rent a furnished place in your new home. Take the stress away when it comes to the big items and spend a little more for peace of mind. But what to do with the stuff you left behind? Store it with us of course! We offer great rates for those moving abroad needing a temporary home for their things.
Take into consideration the new climate of where you are moving. Those North Carolina winter clothes won’t do any good if you are moving down south. Store the clothes you don’t need so when you come back to visit you aren’t freezing cold or boiling hot. Also, it’s a good idea to understand if there are any sizing differences between the places you want to move. In Asia a small does not equal a small in North America.
Taking your TV is equivalent to moving your couch abroad. Leave it behind. In fact a good rule of thumb for electronics is that if it can’t fit inside your carrying on, or you can’t check it in, leave it behind. Chances are the place you are moving have a different electrical outlet anyway, making your stuff useless without adapters. A good laptop should hold you over until you can find a TV, if you really need it.
That’s all we have for now, we wish you luck on your travels, and you can always count on us for safe and secure long term storage when you are gone.
