Moving in With Your Partner: The Benefits of Using a Removal and Storage Company

If you are planning on moving in with your partner, you may suddenly discover that your new home isn't big enough for the belongings and furniture that you both own. As well as having to agree on which items you want in your new home, you will also have to decide about what to do with the things you do not have room for. Below is a guide to the benefits of letting your removal company store these items.

Your belongings will be safe

If you opt to store items in a garage or outbuilding, there is a chance that adverse weather conditions, moisture or extremes in temperature may cause damage. Your items will also be at risk of theft. A removal and storage company will ensure that your belongings are safe. You will have the option of storing valuable items in a climate and temperature controlled unit. You can also be confident that thieves will not be able to gain access to any items you wish to store.

Your belongings will be insured

If you use a storage company which is registered with the Australian Furniture Removers Association (AFRA), you can be confident that they offer comprehensive removal and storage insurance. AFRA members must also have public liability insurance, third party liability insurance and carrier's legal liability insurance. These policies will provide you with peace of mind that you will be adequately compensated if your belongings are stolen or damaged.

Your belongings will be transported safely

Loading large or heavy items can be difficult to do if you are trying to fit them into a small car by yourself. Professional storage companies will send specialised removal teams to pack and transport your belongings from your home to the place of storage. The removal team will use a truck with a loading ramp or lift to load and transport your items. They will also ensure that items are properly secured and strapped into the vehicle to prevent accidental damage while they are on the road.

You have ease of access

Once your belongings are in storage, you can access them at any time during business hours using the key supplied to you by the company. This will allow you to add or remove items as you see fit.
