How To Plan A Temporary Move

You’re moving, but only temporarily. Maybe your job is sending you off to another location. Maybe you’re between places. Maybe you’ve been displaced from your home due to a natural disaster, or perhaps you have to leave your current house and are waiting for the perfect spot to call your new home. No matter the reason, planning a temporary move is a little different than moving your entire home for a permanent location. Your particular situation will dictate which steps you need to take to move. The good news is you know you’re move is only temporary. You need only figure out what to do with your stuff in the mean time.

Your first order of business is to find a place to keep your belongings during this transitional phase. A great place to consider is a storage facility. They’re available for long-term or short-term leases. Storage facilities give you flexibility in terms of the length of time you need keep your items stored. You can come and go whenever necessary to grab what you need when you need it.

And you’ll need to decide whether you want to pay for a climate-controlled space or not. You should conduct some research into the company to find out one that suits your needs best.

Next, where will your temporary home be? Will you stay with a friend or family member? Are you moving into a short-term temporary living arrangement? Where you’re moving, whether it’s furnished, and how much space you’ll have there will also dictate what you can bring with and what you’ll need to leave behind in storage.

Some short-term rentals are fully furnished so you won’t need to bring much. Call and find out about what’s provided. Consider what you’ll need to use on a day-to-day basis and ask about items provided in the rental agreement. Ask if they will have all the appliances you need in the kitchen, including dishes, pots, pans, and eating utensils.

If you rent a room, you may need to furnish your designated space but should be allowed to share household items. This leaves you worry-free regarding appliances, dishes, and home entertainment. Also, whether you’re moving temporarily or permanently, be sure to keep all your documents with you, including your passport, social security card, and birth certificate.

Once you have a plan and you know where you’re going and how long you’ll be there, you can start packing and getting ready for this temporary move. Then, call your Melbourne FL moving company and we’ll help make your move easy.
