Exciting Times vs Stressful Times
If you’re selling your home and moving to a new one, moving can be one of the most exciting times in your life, but it can also be one of the most stressful. Preparation ahead of time is the key to keeping the stress level at a minimum. Here are some steps to consider:
- Make two lists of your possessions. The first should include items that you definitely want to take to your new location and the second those that you can dispose of. You may be able to sell some things, give them to a local charity, or to family and/or friends. Now the hard part..get rid of those items!
- If you’ve already bought your new home take measurements of the rooms in your new home, then measure your furniture to get an idea of what will fit and what won’t.
- When you’re selling your home, a portable storage container, delivered to your driveway and left there for you to load , makes sense. First you have to stage you’re home to make it look as large as possible to prospective buyers. A portable storage container that can be delivered to and left in your driveway for you to load at your convenience is a perfect solution to the “Where to store what’s going to my new home in the interim?” question. Go Mini’s Portable storage containers come in three sizes 12′, 16′ and 20′, all are 8’X8′, are clean, have translucent panels to allow light in, finished floors and walls that have tie-down sections for you to secure boxes and furniture. They do not sit on the ground like other portable containers, but sit on 8″ padded wheels thus preventing any moisture, caused by rain or snow, from getting inside.
- Once your home is sold, you’ll need to start packing. You may, or may not, have your new home picked out or bought, or there may be a delay in moving into your new home after you’ve sold your old one. With a Go Mini’s portable storage container you can load all of your possessions and we will store the container in our yard un til you’re ready to move in. It will only take a phone call to let us know when you would like your belongings delivered.
You can use a Go Mini’s container to store anything from garden tools and kitchen appliances to clothes. Of course any flammable items are prohibited from being sored in a container. If it during the summer, you wouldn’t want to store your candles. Valuables, such as furs, fine arts and jewelry should be kept in your possession.
