What is Mobile Storage?

Mobile storage can be a game changer when you need to move a lot of stuff quickly, but how does it work?
What is Mobile Storage?
When you use mobile storage for moving, a container arrives at your property. We can help you select the size, so you pay for as much, or as little space as you need.

You can take as much time as you need to load up your belongings, or you can make your job easier by getting our experienced removalists to pack it for you – ask us about Mobile Serviced Storage.

When the mobile storage container is full, it’s then taken to our secure storage facility, where it can wait until you are settled into your new home. When you’re ready, the container is delivered to your new address, where you can then unpack it at a time that’s convenient for you.

The system is incredibly flexible. With the option to have the container shipped directly to the new property, you can get immediate access to it.

And if you need access to just a few items, the portable storage unit is always available on our site. So, whether you need temporary storage solutions, or a removalist service to get you relocated right away, our storage units for pick up & delivery can accommodate your every need.

Budget Options Versus Serviced Options

Planning a move means finding a balance between cost and convenience. Do you save money and do all the work yourself or do you expand your budget to have professionals do it all for you? So, what are your options when it comes to budget versus service?

Budget Options

The most popular way to move house on a budget is to handle everything yourself. You do all the work, from sourcing the packing materials and equipment to packing boxes and doing the heavy lifting. You save on professional moving costs, but this option is incredibly time-consuming and involves a lot of physical labour.

While DIY moving options can be significantly cheaper, you can make your life easier by adding affordable mobile mini storage solutions. You are still saving money by doing most of the work, but you’ve got the peace of mind of secure storage.

Serviced Options
Serviced options remove a lot of your workload. These services also come with a lot of flexibility with a completely hands-off service where everything is packed, lifted, transported, and unpacked at the destination.

If time is of the essence, or you don’t have the physical capacity to move heavy items yourself, these are good options to have. When you hire professionals, you also reduce the risk of damage to your valuable items and eliminate a lot of the mental stress of moving.

A big advantage of mobile storage solutions available from 1800 We Store It is that we deliver the flexibility to blend your moving options according to your budget and time constraints.
