Best Time to Move Into a Storage Unit
When selecting when to move into a storage unit, consider these factors:
Weather: If you live in an area with extreme weather conditions, such as very hot summers or cold winters, it’s best to choose a time when the weather is more moderate. Moving items in extreme temperatures can be challenging and could damage sensitive belongings.
Seasonal Demand: Storage unit availability and prices can fluctuate throughout the year, depending on the demand. The demand for storage units tends to be higher during the summer months or around college moving seasons. If possible, consider moving during off-peak times when there is less demand; this can give you more options and better rates.
Personal Schedule: If you’re busy, Not A Hobby Moving can handle the move into storage on your behalf.
Notice Period: Check the storage facility’s notice requirements to plan accordingly.
Accessibility: Ensure the facility’s operating hours align with your needs for easy access.

Space Constraints: If you’re downsizing or moving into a smaller living space, it may be wise to move extra items to a storage unit before your move. This allows you to declutter and create more space in your new home, making the moving process smoother and more efficient.
Cost: Moving extra items to a storage unit involves additional expenses, such as renting the unit and potentially hiring movers. Consider your budget and compare the costs of moving the items before or after your move.
Convenience: Moving can be a hectic and overwhelming process. If you’re already dealing with the stress of the move, it might be more convenient to move your essential items first and settle into your new home before deciding which items to store.
Sorting and Organization: Moving extra items to a storage unit before the move gives you an opportunity to sort through your belongings and decide what you truly need or want to keep. It can be helpful to declutter before the move, potentially saving time and money with less to transport.

It is never an economical choice to hire good movers. If, on the other hand, you hire movers on an hourly basis, there are a lot of things you can do to cut costs and save money. When you get paid by the hour, time equals money. You can cut costs by doing more of the work yourself. However, you can still have the professional movers do the heavy lifting and transportation.
Packing & Unpacking
Doing your own packing can save the moving company hours and effort as they only
need to transport items. Moving the boxes alone can take hours if you are on an hourly rate, you can reduce the cost significantly. This also allows you the opportunity to label the boxes the way you like and tape the boxes shut. Some people prefer this method because they feel their items are safer.
Disassembly & Reassembly
Furniture is usually bulky, and taking it apart can help pieces to fit in a truck easier than when it’s fully assembled. If some items are not disassembled, you may need multiple trucks which will increase the cost of the move. Start by breaking down beds and using labeled ziplock bags to keep the hardware organized. Not all furniture should be broken down but do what you can to reduce the amount of space and work for the movers.
Once everything is packed, you can organize the boxes by size to help movers find the size they need for the space available. Moving all of the items close to the front door or the garage can significantly speed up the process and save money. Also, if it’s possible to remove obstacles beforehand, then do so. For example, if you have a neighbor who parks in front of your home, ask them to park somewhere else.
Detach and Reconnect Appliances
When moving with professionals, detach your appliances from the walls, such as the washing machine and dryer, to save time and money. Watch videos first or ask a friend as disconnecting the washer could cause problems if not done correctly. This also gives you the opportunity to clean and dust the appliances before reconnecting them at the new house. Dryers may need the vent cleaned out thoroughly.
Move at the Right Times
Moving in the summer can increase your costs by up to thirty percent as its peak season. Instead, move between September and April during the off-season. During these times prices are lower, and companies are more willing to reduce prices. Additionally, choose to move between Monday and Thursday as weekends are the mover’s busiest time and often cost more.
