									Arranging Storage Sometimes, there isn't enough room for all of your belongings – and arranging storage, on top of moving can be a blessing in disguise – or a nightmare. So you need another, convenient, cheap option for y our furniture. Storage companies are basically large warehouses or lockups that yo u can rent – and range in size from a box room to an area large eno ugh to store a complete house. Storage is great if you're needing to move out of one house before y our other hoese is ready – or when you've sold your old house but ha ven't finished arranging the new one. It saves the you having to wo rk out what to do with your things. It's also a good idea when you have too much furniture for your new house, and no where to store it yourself – and while garages and bas ements are great for short term storage, they aren't protected, in s ome cases against the elements, nor, possibly insured against accide nts, such as fires or flood. Garages and basements also, while acce ssible, may also need to be used for other things. It is possible for your belongings to be damaged in storage, but highl y unlikely – you'll be given a list of belongings that you're checking in – and you should check at that time that everything is secure, sea led and stacked or placed well. If you're moving long distance, its always good to research, throughl y, by phone and if possible, in person, how much access you'll have t o your furniture, and belongings, and what sort of notice you need to give – you'll also need to work out what is going into storage and h ow much space you'll need for it all. If you're unsure of storage companies, and you're using a removal c ompany – ask them – they may have a group of storage companies they deal with, and offer you a better premium than you may otherwise g et. It also means that you've got less research to deal with.
