Movable pods (long-term): This type of storage offers the convenience of storing items at your own pace. They also will pick up the pod (storage container) and store it at their storage facility. You can then ask to transfer it to your new home or location.
Storage facilities (long-term): This is the most common and easy to find. These companies offer a variety of sizes to store your items in. They have everything from a closet space size to a warehouse.
Moving companies (short-term): Some moving companies will offer temporary storage – such as vaulted storage – after they have picked up your personal items. Typically this type of storage is temporary due to limited storage availability, but it’s a very safe way to store your items for a short amount of time.
The main difference between short and long term storage is the length of time you choose to store your items. Some storage companies will offer a discount for long-term storage.
