Storage removals are a simple process if you aren’t moving a far distance, but they can be much more expensive the further away that you go.

Things You Should Make Sure of When You Purchase Removals and Storage Services
When you go to hire a removals company, make sure that they have a good amount of insurance. Container insurance is especially important, because the containers are what will house the goods that you are storing. You should visit the facility where they intend to store your possessions, and make sure that it has security alarms. You should also make sure that it is completely waterproof so that your items won’t be ruined from water leakage. In most cases, you can pay a small fee for additional insurance for your valuable belongings, and it might not be such a bad idea considering the fact that many of your items may be priceless. Make sure that you get any insurance policies or removal contracts in writing, so that you have a detailed outline of what you can expect.
