Moving company storage warehouse

When you're not quite ready to move into your new home you will need to place your household goods and personal effects into temporary storage. In a previous article we discussed the self-storage alternative versus employing a professional mover to store your belongings. In this article we will focus on steps, methods and procedures which a professional moving company utilizes to safely store your shipment until you are ready for delivery.

Please call us at 631-775-9815 to discuss your options for storing your belongings at either a self-storage unit or within our Long Island storage warehouse. Cost estimates and consultations are provided free and without obligation or sales pressure.
