How a MI-BOX® Storage Container Can Help Your Last-minute Move

Last-minute moving storage container

Last-minute moving is never fun, but using a storage container can help the process go as smoothly as possible.

 

Moving last-minute is something no one wants to go through, but it does happen from time to time. If unforeseen circumstances beyond your control have forced you to pack up, a storage container can be an effective way to tackle the job in a hurry.

Some of the reasons for a last-minute or emergency move include:

  • House fire
  • Flooding
  • Other natural disasters
  • Immediate job opportunity
  • Family emergency

In situations like this, you might need to pack up in a hurry and a storage container can help you do it quickly and conveniently.

 

Delivered to Your Door

The moment you find out you need to move, you should determine how you’re going to do it:

  • Professional moving company
  • Order Kelowna storage containers
  • Do it yourself

Each option has its advantages, but one of the great things about MI-BOX® portable storage containers is they can be delivered right to your doorstep, sometimes even on the same day. Even if it’s not, you can start packing boxes right away and begin loading when it arrives.

Once your container is full, all you have to do is place a call and direct the driver where you want it delivered. That brings us to another point of consideration…

 

Temporary Storage

In your scramble to arrange a new place to live, your possession date might not line up with your moving date. If there’s a gap between the two, it’s possible to store your goods on a temporary basis until you get the green light to move in.

While you’re waiting, the container will be placed in a facility that’s:

  • Secure and safe
  • Climate Controlled
  • Accessible

And should you need to store some of your possessions for a longer period, there are other storage solutions for that as well.

 

Unload at Your Leisure

Under normal circumstances, MI-BOX® mobile storage units are ideal to get a head start on your move because you can pack as far in advance as you wish. That’s not an option when you’re forced to move last-minute. However, once you arrive at your new home, you can unload your storage container at your own pace.

And with the ability to place it anywhere on your property, you’ll enjoy easy access so you can unload quickly and efficiently.

 

Protect Your Belongings

It’s understandable that moving in an emergency situation can cause people to rush. That might also mean scrambling to find a moving truck or other types of transportation. But rather than settling for a vehicle that’s ill-suited for moving boxes and other large items (i.e. a Honda Civic), portable containers can prevent your goods from being damaged along the way.
