We’re continuing our blog series highlighting questions to ask as you’re shopping for your moving company. If your moving situation includes any risk factors such as home closings, here’s a question you may want to consider:

If I’m not going immediately to my new location, do you offer storage?

We do offer storage! We will take your belongings and unload them into our secure storage facility. When you’re ready for your new location, we’ll load your belongings back into the truck and meet you at your new location for unloading.

We offer climate-controlled storage, and we can help you determine if you need it. Climate-controlled storage means that the temperature and humidity are controlled in the unit. Climate-controlled storage is more important in coastal areas with higher humidity. There are only a few reasons in our region why someone would need climate-controlled storage. Food or drug reps usually need climate-controlled storage. If you have high-end electronics and/or works of art, we recommend climate-controlled storage.

People often think they need climate-controlled storage for antiques, but that is not usually the case. Solid wood is okay in standard storage units.

We are pleased to provide this information to help you determine the movers that are right for you. We hope you’ll consider Heritage Moving & Storage, Inc., for your next move into, out of, or within the Roanoke, Salem, and Blacksburg, Virginia area.
