Storing Your Items

April 25th, 2013 7:32 pm by

Often times you will not be able to move straight away into your new home.  When this happens, you need to consider storing your things.  There are many options available to you.  Whether or not it is a definite possibility, it is wise to ask what your options are with your professionals here at Highland.  This way there are no surprises.  Further, you can anticipate and budget for any potential increase in cost to accommodate storing your things.  This is really important if you are purchasing another home and that purchase is contingent on the sale of your current home.  Remember, anything can happen at closing.  Therefore, you may have a delay or even worse, something could fall through.  If that is the case, make sure to ask your professionals here at Highland about your options.  We will do our best to accommodate you.  However, you will want to know this ahead of time so that you can plan for any unforeseen circumstances.

If you are moving internationally or a long distance, storage may be a necessary part of transport.  Therefore, you will have to discuss the details of your impending move with your professionals here at Highland.  Keep in mind that there are several things that can be done to best meet your needs.  These include long-term storage for the items you may not be able to take with you.  Short-term storage for the items that will be transported to your new location and air shipment of a few things that you can’t live without.  In order to best meet your needs, take inventory of your things and think about what you will need immediately, short term and not until you return if that is apart of your relocation.

If you are on a corporate relocation, there may be storage as a part of your relocation package.  If so, clarify what is covered and what is your responsibility.  Often times there are limits on the length of time covered by your relocation package.  You will want to understand this ahead of time so that you can budget accordingly.  

Storing your items may be new to you but it is something we are very familiar with and we can identify options that can best meet your needs.
