Most people when shifting to a new place are faced with a difficulty that what to do with the belongings they have? It’s difficult for them to carry the belongings with them as they are shifting and there isn’t any place still to settle yet. They first have to move to the new place then buy or rent a house to settle in, and only after this they can shift their belongings. So, until this occurs what can they do with their things? They can either sell everything or they can find a place to store them for the time being.
There are some options you could explore:
- Your landlord won’t let you leave your belongings there in your old house, as he has to put it on rent again. If he is a very good person, he might let you leave your belongings under his lookout but this is not ideal for either of you, and if something happens to your belongings, there is nobody that you can hold accountable.
- Secondly, you might want to sell them before making the shifting, but how would you find customers to sell some or all of your belongings in this short span of time? You might end up selling your price at a much lower price than they are worth.
- Thirdly, you can leave your belongings to someone who is relative of yours or to someone who is a very good friend of yours, but again the same question of accountability comes.
The best option for you is to keep your belongings in a secure place like storage units. The secured units would take a very reasonable amount of money but your belongings would be safe in their hand. The storage facility would take care that your belongings do not get damaged or spoilt by any weather conditions or any kind of bugs and they are not stolen or harmed in any way.
Just before you move to the new place, search for storage units that will give you a good deal for temporary storage. Some facilities offer good prices for the first month or first three months etc. you can opt for such an option. Make sure you go for a facility with state of the art security as you are leaving all your belongings in their hands.
