• How Storage Can Solve Your Downsizing Dilemma

    There are many reasons to downsize, such as moving to a smaller house or having an older child move out of the house. If you are downsizing your belongings, then you can take advantage of storage solutions to keep your items protected and out of the way. Here is a closer look at how storage can solve your downsizing dilemma:

    You may have certain items—like holiday decorations, artwork, or heirlooms—that take up a lot of room in your house. You may not want to get rid of these items, so take advantage of self-storage to create more room. Storage units come in many sizes and can be used for short-term or long-term contracts. Take stock of all the items you need to store and request a unit that will fit all your belongings. You can access the storage unit whenever you need, and you can downsize your home without complications.

    Avoid Non-Run Fees

    Many auto transport companies will charge a non-run fee for a vehicle that cannot be moved without a trailer or towing package. You can avoid this type of fee by ensuring your car’s engine is running and filled with gasoline and oil.

    Conduct Thorough Inspections
