House Movers with Storage Facilities

Posted on June 14, 2016

Hiring professional house movers is a convenient way to make room for new additions in your home.

Hiring professional house movers is a convenient way to make room for new additions in your home.

When people think of house movers, they tend to think of using them to move all of their possessions in one go. While most Kelowna moving companies will perform this service, few offer the added benefit of temporary storage options for their clients. 

That’s unfortunate because sometimes that’s all a homeowner needs in certain situations. They might not require a full move, but rather a combination of moving and storage as a temporary solution. Here are a few examples:


  1. Couples Moving in Together

As couples get serious and decide to take their relationship to the next level, it’s a natural progression for them to move in together. From a logistical point of view, this can be problematic because you can end up with: 

  • Two sets of everything
  • Not enough space
  • Debate over what stays and what goes

Rather than make a hasty decision, why not place the excess in temporary storage by hiring one of the moving companies Kelowna residents recommend? At the very least, it will buy you some time. Who knows, it might even save you a few arguments.

Once you’ve had a chance to settle into your new place, you’ll have a better idea of what you need and what can be:

  • Sold
  • Donated
  • Scrapped


  1. New Addition to the Family

Being an expectant parent is an exciting time. Along with the joy comes a significant level of responsibility. Part of that involves preparing a room for your little one. If your spare room is full of odds and ends, and you don’t have the time (or a vehicle) to move it yourself, professional house movers will certainly be up to the task.

By placing these items in temporary storage, you’ll get a better idea of whether they were actually important to you. If, after a few months, you barely notice they were gone, maybe you can relinquish them altogether.

Clearing a room and placing its contents in storage is also useful if you: 

  • Have an older child who is moving back in with you (oh, the joys of parenthood!)
  • Want to set up a spare room as a yoga studio (or a man cave)
  • Expecting frequent visitors from out of town


  1. Renovation Projects

Renovations go so much smoother when there’s less clutter in the way. Companies that offer moving and storage services are advantageous because they:

  • Let you get to work quicker
  • Allow you to save your energy for the project
  • Have the skill and experience to move your belongings safely
