The deal is done. Your North Virginia area house has sold. The new home, maybe across town or perhaps a few hours away, awaits. But in 2021 moving feels a little different, and it is.

Aside from getting everything you own – furniture, clothing, kitchenware, toys, bicycles – to that lovely new domicile, you’ve got other considerations to worry about – who will do the packing, heavy lifting, and how long will all that take? You may hire a moving company, but having additional people in your home may be concerning. Another option you might consider is a portable storage container that you’re able to pack yourself, such as those provided by UNITS Moving & Portable of Northern Virginia.

What should factor into your thinking as you go about selecting a moving solution? Here are a few tips:

  • Get more than one estimate. Why settle on the first sales pitch you hear? We generally recommend that three estimates be given. You’ll get a better feel for the company with a representative giving everything that will be going on the truck a good look and a fair suggestion of the load weight.
  • Like what you heard? Picked a company? Before you sign anything, check for referrals and ask your local Better Business Bureau how the company rates. If there are a lot of complaints, both word of mouth and with the BBB, start again. And be sure the company is licensed and insured.
  • Count of UNITS for help. If you are packing items to be stored in the short term, we can help with that and with the move.
