What Is Valet Storage and Is It Right for You?

Picture this: you arrive at the fanciest restaurant in town, and rather than spending time searching for a nearby parking space, or attempting to parallel park on the street, you hand the task off to a dedicated employee to park your car so that you can enjoy your meal. When you’re finished and ready to leave, the employee then retrieves your car from parking and delivers it back to you. There is no hassle or problems whatsoever. Valet parking follows a model that is convenient for those that need to park their vehicle. Very similarly, valet storage follows a model that is convenient for those that need to put their belongings into storage.

At Doorage, we provide complete valet storage solutions, meaning we pick up, store, and return your belongings when you need them. Compared to renting a self-storage unit at some facility, choosing Doorage’s valet storage services can save you an unbelievable amount of time and money. In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at valet storage and if it is right for you.

What is Valet Storage?

No pun intended, but valet storage (literally) does all the heavy lifting for you. Valet storage companies like Doorage deliver all the packing materials you need, like durable secure lock storage containers. Additionally, they come and pick up the containers when they are packed and ready to go and will transport them to a safe and secure storage facility. When you’re ready to have your items back, they will deliver them right to your doorstep. What does this mean you have to do? Not a whole lot, honestly. Especially when compared to using self-storage services, valet storage does everything for you all while you stay put in the comfort of your home. While this may seem like a service for a luxurious lifestyle, it can actually be more affordable than renting a self-storage unit, too.

Is Valet Storage Right For You?

Self-storage facilities operate in which you get a space and pay a set rate for said space. The problem with this is that people end up paying for storage space that they aren’t necessarily using. Why? Typically it is because self-storage facilities are always trying to maximize the use of your space. Prices of self-storage units vary depending on your location, but in large, the average cost of a standard storage 10’ x 10’ — the most popular storage unit size — is over $100 a month. With valet services like those offered by Doorage, you only pay for the space that you use. Why should you have to pay for an entire storage unit when all you need to store is a set of skis or a couch? You don’t have to with valet storage! Some of the benefits of valet storage include:

  • An easy way to reduce clutter. Trying to free up some space in your home by reducing clutter can be difficult, especially if you don’t have adequate storage solutions. Valet storage is a quick and convenient way to store clutter that you may not necessarily want to get rid of.
  • Saves you time. Valet storage is a huge time saver. In addition to the packing, think about what else you would need to do to store your items in a self-storage facility. You’d have to purchase materials, load everything into your vehicle, drive to the self-storage facility, and unload it all. When you’re ready to get your items back, you are required to drive back to the facility, pack up all of your belongings, and transport them home. With valet storage, transportation to the facility, storage, and delivery is no concern of yours.
  • Keeps more money in your pocket. Using valet storage is a great way to save money. Not only are you not paying for an entire storage facility, but you’re only paying for the space you need — and there aren’t any long-term contracts involved. You also don’t have to deal with cancellation fees or any other hidden expenses. All in all, valet storage is a great way to keep your money in your pockets.
  • It is very convenient. We already know that self-storage can take a lot of time out of your schedule. Valet storage removes the travel time and the effort taken to move your items from your home to the self-storage unit from the equation, making it an incredibly convenient storage solution. Because the containers are picked up and delivered to your home, valet storage is the most convenient way to store your belongings.
  • It’s incredibly secure. Valet storage services are incredibly secure. In addition to the secure seal storage containers that you store your belongings in, the containers will be picked up and transported to a state-of-the-art storage facility with the latest security and safety features. Using valet storage is a great way to gain peace of mind in knowing that your belongings are safe and secure.
  • It’s very safe. You have probably heard more than enough horror stories of people getting burnt by scam moving companies. Valet storage solutions through a reputable storage company like Doorage is a great way to ensure that your belongings are safely stored.

Simply put, if you have things that you need to store, valet storage is right for you. When you work with a valet storage company like Doorage, your experience gets even better. Our process is effortless, quick, and can be controlled entirely through our online platform from the comfort of your home.

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!
