4 Tips for a Temporary Move, Rochester, New York

If you’ve sold your home, but your new place isn’t ready to move into, you’ll need to arrange for a temporary stay. Instead of dealing with two full moves, you’ll probably want to put most of your belongings into storage while you’re in a temporary accommodation. Your moving company will also help you to find solutions for an easy move. Below are three tips to help make your transitional move go as smoothly as possible. 

How to Handle a Temporary Move 

1. Give Yourself Plenty of Time

Finding temporary accommodation that suits you might not be as quick and easy as you would like. As soon as you know that you need a temporary home, start looking at options even if your moving date seems a long way off. There will be a lot of little details to think about, such as the parking situation, local amenities, and whether you will have to pay costs like a security deposit and insurance. You might even have to think about a different climate and base what you take or store around that.

2. Take Advantage of Storage 

Putting your belongings into storage doesn’t have to mean leaving them in damp units with poor protection. Modern storage facilities have climate control and excellent security. Your moving company might also offer to store your furniture until it’s time for your permanent move. Reliable storage options mean you can store whatever you need to while having peace of mind during your temporary move.

3. Rent Furniture

One advantage is that the furniture rental company can move everything in and out for you. You can also choose items that are best suited to your temporary home, rather than worrying about whether your own furniture is the right size or will match the new place. 

4. Take the Chance to Declutter 

Moving is always a smart time to get rid of clutter. Clearing out items and clothes you don’t need is particularly advantageous before a temporary move because you won’t need to worry about transporting unwanted items twice or putting them into storage. Think about items that are really important to you, and part with the rest. If you don’t want to throw certain items away, donate them to charity, or have a sale. You can also think about ways to discard bulky items, such as transferring files from an old desktop to a laptop.
