As peak season for real estate and relocation start to heat up, many Augusta area residents are looking to prepare their homes to sell at the same time they are preparing to move. It can be a very busy and stressful time, which is why we are working to create simple storage and relocation solutions with our containerized storage services. If you are considering selling your home, or are already in the early stages of preparing your home to list, Go-Mini’s portable storage containers are a simple solution to your storage needs as you declutter and stage your home. Once you’ve reached closing day, add the rest of your belongings to your container and we can help you finish up your D.I.Y. relocation in no time.
If you are considering portable storage solutions for your upcoming home sale and relocation, here are 5 easy steps to making your move happen with Go-Minis:
Step 1: Clear the Clutter
If you are thinking of selling your house or have talked with a local agent, you have likely discussed the process of decluttering and staging your home. It can be stressful to explore storage options and figure out the most cost effective and efficient way to make this all happen, and that’s where Go-Mini’s comes in.
Go Mini’s aren’t just for moving, Augusta Go-Mini’s offers units in three convenient sizes (12’, 16’, & 20’) so you can easily rent the space you need. Our containers can be used even prior to your actual moving date and are perfect for removing the odds and ends that can collect in your home while you prepare and stage your home for listing. Call us two business days (or up to a week) in advance to schedule your delivery, then load the container to clear up some space in your home. You can keep the unit as long as you need!
Step 2: Collect Your Supplies
De-cluttering doesn’t always mean getting rid of everything, which is why it’s important to make sure you have all the supplies you need to protect your items while they are in storage. Augusta Go Mini’s can provide anything from container locks, boxes, and tape to dolly rentals, furniture pads and bubble wrap! See our complete list of supplies here to make sure you have everything you need to keep your items safe and sound inside your container.
Step 3: Ready for market.
Once your items have been loaded into the unit and you are ready to list your home, Augusta Go Mini’s will pick up the unit and place it in our temporary storage warehouse until you are ready for the big moving day. Storing your unit will not change your monthly rent rate, just a one-time fee of $80 – this means whether your house lasts 2 days or 2 months on the market, your items are stored and secure until you’re ready to receive them again!
Step 4: Time to move the rest of the house.
Once you’ve found a new house and all closing dates are set, you may wonder how you’re going to move the rest of your household items. Often times, Go Mini’s customers will rent a second container to move the rest of their household items. And if this is the case for your move, not to worry! Our team will work with your moving dates and coordinate the delivery, relocation, and drop off of one (or both) of your units as you prefer.
You can schedule all delivery times all at once, or call us as you work through the moving process (giving us one to two days’ notice of each desired delivery).
Step 5: Settling into your new home.
The hustle of prepping, selling, and moving can be overwhelming for homeowners. That’s why when you rent from Augusta Go Mini’s, there is no rush to unpack. Your containers will be right outside your door, so you can take your time sorting through your items and unpacking your unit. When you’re ready, give us a call and we’ll take the containers away!
Preparing to sell and move is a tall task, which is why we are working to create simple and easy-to-use storage and relocation solutions. Our simple 5-step move keeps you from having to waste time driving back and forth to a storage unit or taking multiple loads in a rental truck on moving day. We bring the convenience of storage right to your door, offer off-site storage during your home sale, and can deliver your container right to your new home so you can unpack and unload at your own pace. We hope that as you prepare for this next milestone that you consider all the ways that Augusta Go-Mini’s can deliver affordable convenience right to your door!
