The Benefits of Full Service Storage and Moving Services

Relocating to a new place is stressful and requires a lot of energy and time. But even with the work required to move, approximately 13 percent of Americans move to a new home each year.

If you’re getting ready to plan a move, having the pros on your side can make the process a lot smoother.

Read on to learn about the benefits of using full-service storage and moving services and how they can help you reach your new destination.

Full-Service Storage and Moving Makes it Easy to Plan Ahead

Whether you’re moving across town, into a college dorm, or across the country, moving requires a lot of planning. Hiring moving services allows you to plan in advance.

Look for a professional service that will provide you with an accurate and honest estimate. Not only does this help you book the date of your move, but it also helps you plan your budget, too.

Moving is often an expensive endeavor, so knowing what to expect will definitely help to relieve some stress. Shop around to get the best rates, and always make sure you get them in writing.

No matter where you’re moving to, it’s essential to get the cost ahead of time. Look for full-service storage and moving services that will give you a price without any hidden or unexpected fees.

Packing? No Problem

From your sofa to fragile dishes and valuable artwork, packing for a move is one of the toughest steps. You’ll need to have plenty of time on your hands to get it all done. You’ll also need to know how to pack your items correctly so they don’t get damaged.

A trained moving service has a team that can help you pack. From disassembling furniture to wrapping fragile items, they’ll do the heavy lifting for you.

Many people who move struggle with packing their belongings. When you use professional moving services, they’ll handle this step in the process. And that means there’s a lot less pressure on you when the big day arrives.

Some moving services will also help you unpack once you get to your new place. This is yet another of the many benefits of using moving services.

You Won’t Be Surrounded by Clutter

Another advantage to hiring full-service storage and moving companies is that your new place will be clutter-free. You can have the storage service relocate items you’re not quite ready to unpack.

Being surrounded by packing materials and opened boxes can make your new place feel unkempt. When you move, you want to feel like you have a fresh start.

It can sometimes take weeks or even months to get all of your stuff organized in your new home. When you use a full-service storage service, larger items or extra boxes can stay out of sight and out of mind.

Companies that provide valet storage make everything easier. They’ll provide you with storage on-demand, so you can store or retrieve your items whenever you’re ready.

When your new place is nice and clean, your mental well-being will be better, too. Consider full-service storage so that you’re not overwhelmed by chaos and clutter.

Fewer Worries About Injury or Damage

No one wants to deal with a tweaked back or sore arms while they’re in the midst of moving. Most people experience at least one minor incident or injury when they lift or try to move heavy items.

Fortunately, your moving services will handle all of the physical aspects of the task. This means you won’t have to worry about getting injured before you even get to your new place.

Aside from preventing you from hurting yourself, the pros will also help you avoid breaking or damaging your beloved belongings. They know how to pack, handle and move everything the right way.

Even if the movers handle your items safely, it’s important to have some form of insurance. If you don’t have your own coverage, ask the moving services what type of protection plans they offer. Not only will this protect your stuff if it gets damaged, but it will give you peace of mind.

You’ll Save Valuable Time and Money

If you try to pack, move, and store everything on your own, the costs can really add up. A professional moving and storage service will provide you with a single rate that combines everything together.

Buying packing materials, renting a truck, and paying for gas can get expensive. Then you’ll need to shell out even more cash for storage if you need it.

Consider enlisting the help of full-service storage and moving services to help you save money. Aside from the cost savings, this option will also save you tons of time.

When you have extra time, it gives you the chance to say your goodbyes or just to relax. You’ll also be able to work a bit more and avoid taking time off. Getting help from the pros means you don’t need to stress about squeezing in your move in the midst of an already busy schedule.

This is by far the best way to store your stuff…

Doorage is the best concept ever! Not only are the staff and employees super nice, they are extremely accommodating and friendly.

This is by far the best way to store your stuff without having to do all the heavy lifting yourself.

Hassle-free, convenient affordable…

Hassle-free, convenient and affordable. I cannot recommend Doorage enough. Not only do they offer a great service that someone should have thought of sooner, but they are also very accommodating with it. And most importantly, my stuff was picked up when I wanted it to be, stored safely and returned when I needed it to be.

Great service, I’m spreading the word…

Set up pick up for my college student. Arrived on time, helped with odd items and hauled away in 30 minutes. Friendly, helpful and fair. Saved me time, money and the inconvenience of buying boxes, finding storage, and hauling it to the location from dorm room.

In August, I’ll set up delivery to dorm room without me picking up a thing. Great service, I’m spreading the word.

They were fast, considerate, careful…

I moved my Mom in with me and my family. She didn’t want to get rid of anything but we don’t have room for her stuff at my house so we looked into storage spaces and found Doorage.

First they came out with bins and clothing boxes. We spent the next couple of days filling the bins [and] boxes.

Doorage returned on a Sunday, the only day I was available. They took the boxes and bins, and shrink wrapped all the furniture, put protective packaging around the more important furniture, and hauled it all away.

They were fast, considerate, careful, polite, respectful and friendly. They joked around with my Mom yet were still very professional.

On top of all that, they were a little cheaper for the space we needed, and the money I saved on a Uhaul and days off of work, not to mention I barely lifted a finger in the whole ordeal, I would definitely recommend Doorage to absolutely anyone looking for storage.

Crazy cheap compared to the competition…

Easily One of the Best Moving Experiences I’ve Ever Had

I contacted Doorage to help me store my things temporarily while I was away for the summer. From pickup to final drop-off, everything was a breeze. Their eco bins save you the trouble of worrying about buying boxes and they break down (to save you money!) or wrap up any big items you might have.

I thought the website portal was very useful too. It’s an easy way to schedule pick-ups and deliveries and remember all the stuff you tossed into storage. Anytime I had a question or an issue I received a prompt response and solution to the problem! Nothing ever felt like a hassle.

Doorage is a great company to work with. I never felt like I was getting ripped off, and in fact many times the movers helped save me money. Mike and Dean are legit and made sure everything was handled smoothly and professionally! By the way, the ultimate costs ended up being crazy cheap compared to the competition. Really can’t recommend Doorage enough.

It was so quick and easy…

Doorage is a great company with great employees. They gave me a window of 7-1 and came shortly after 7 and left before 9. It was so quick and easy. They provided all the materials and took care of all the large items I had selected and even some that I forgot to add to my move. Sam was very great in helping with my billing. I am happy I selected them as the service has been fantastic.

Very professional and trustworthy…

We moved from a rental apartment to a new condo but had a gap of time before we could move into our new home.  Doorage was the perfect solution to our problem!  They dropped off bins and wardrobe boxes as scheduled.  Then, of course we underestimated how much stuff we had and they kindly dropped off more bins.  No problem!

Then they picked up all our stuff when we scheduled them, stored it and returned it on the day we moved in.  They were on-time, efficient, and worked well with both buildings to make it a smooth transition.  We didn’t have to hire movers (twice!) and find a storage unit for a short period of time.  It’s a brilliant solution for “gap coverage.”

Plus, Doorage was great to work with!  Very professional and trustworthy.  And Dean was awesome!  Efficient, friendly, and strong 🙂

Doorage definitely made a very stressful time much less stressful.  I would highly recommend Doorage to solve your storage problems!

It saved us so much time and energy…

I recently moved in with my girlfriend and we had a bunch of extra furniture and misc. stuff that we no longer had space for.  I saw an ad on Facebook for Doorage and gave them a call.  Basically you schedule a pickup date, then they come and wrap and pack all your stuff for you, put it on their bright pink trucks, and bring it to their warehouse to store until you are ready to get it delivered back.  It saved us so much time and energy not having to pick and move the stuff to a storage facility ourselves.  We had some extremely fragile stuff including an expensive glass table and I was thoroughly impressed with their team and how they packed and moved everything with such great care!  It was snowy and wet that day and the crew made sure to wear booties and put big drop clothes down to protect all of our carpet and hardwood without us even asking!  The best thing is that they only charge you for the exact square footage of your items, which after doing some research turned out to be so much cheaper that renting a big storage unit and not utilizing all the space.  And the last storage unit I rented my dresser got water damaged and it was such a pain and hassle to get reimbursed.  I’ve already told all my friends and family about Doorage and would recommend them to anyone.  Also they donate some of their profits to breast cancer research and community programs which is awesome!

I can’t believe how easy Doorage made this process…

Amazing Customer service! We needed to have a gigantic granite dining table and 6 matching chairs delivered and stored for a few months. I contacted Doorage initially for just a quote and called them on a Saturday to schedule the big move. I was worried because we had to have this extremely heavy table moved within a few days but Doorage was able to schedule us for the following Monday!

I can’t believe how easy Doorage made this process that my husband and I had been dreading! They brought with them all the necessary packaging supplies for a fair price and did an amazing job making sure our ridiculously heavy table was safely wrapped. They quickly and efficiently were able to get this gigantic dining table down the front porch steps! Everybody I talked to, starting from the initial phone call to all the movers were so pleasant and professional. We thought they must have been in business for a long time because of their extensive knowledge and expertise and were surprised to learn they are a newer company!

We are so thankful for their services and feel very confident that our possessions are being well taken care of considering how well each piece was taken care of at pick up! Definitely will continue to use for our storage needs!
