Free Storage *
We offer up to 10 days of short-term free storage and up to 90 days of storage at discounted rates**. We do not provide storage to the general public. This service is only available to customers using our services to move to and from storage. This is not self-storage and our customers do not have access to their belongings while in our storage. The move out of storage will be subject to the same minimum charges as per the move in except that the hourly rates may vary depending on the date. We require advance notice when booking a crew to remove the items from storage and this is subject to our availability. As our moving crews typically book up a month or two in advance, it is recommended that clients book their date for the move out of storage when booking the initial move. If it becomes necessary for our clients to change the date for the move out of storage, we may not be able to accomodate the desired date. In such case, the move out of storage would have to wait until the next available date. Depending on the notice given, this could be several weeks later than desired. We will always try our best to accomodate changes in scheduled dates if at all possible but this can be very difficult, especially for larger moves.
While in our storage, our clients possesions remain wrapped/padded and covered for 100% full replacement value insurance. This is the best possible insurance coverage available in the moving and storage industries. No self storage or mobile storage “protection policies” even come close. Storage containers are weatherproof and rodentproof but not climate controlled. They are located in a secure, gated facility with video surveillance, laser perimeter fence, and high-security locking systems
The following items should not be placed in non-climate controlled storage: records, oil paintings, heavily laquered antique furniture, liquids, food, or cans/bottles of anything.
