Moving is a pain. Even if you do it often and are “used” to it, there are still a thousand stressors. Where are you going to live? How are you going to make new friends? What if you don’t like it? You don’t need to add the stress of packing, shipping, and storing to your list of things to be worried about. By hiring a company like Compass Moving & Storage that offers both moving and storage services, you can make your load much lighter.

Part of the problem with a traditional moving service is that they might be hard pressed to store your stuff while you are looking for a new home. It isn’t always possible to get a place before you move, and you may be staying in a hotel until you can find a place. It would be silly to have your stuff sent to a hotel. They wouldn’t have enough space to store it behind the counter, and you wouldn’t have enough space in your room. Plus, you are just going to have to move it all again.
If you do not know where you are moving to, there is a good chance that you will not know how much space you have to move into. If you happen to need to downsize, there is a question of where you are going to put everything. You may be able to store it in a garage or in a spare room, but if neither of those exist, you will need to find another solution.
One bonus of getting a company that does both moving and storage like Compass Moving & Storage is that you will be able to take advantage of both services until you get things figured out in your new life and home. That will make everything a bit less stressful and help things start off well.
