Our Storage Services
Storage In Transit
Storage In Transit is used for shipments moving on an Interstate or Intrastate basis and being stored for at least 180 days or less. If your new home isn’t quite ready when you move, you’ll need Storage In Transit. SIT shipments will be carefully handled and placed into our facility where they’ll be available for reloading and delivery to your new home with just a couple of day’s notice.
Permanent storage is used for local shipments, international shipments or commercial accounts where your possessions will remain for long term or on-going basis. Safe, careful handling is given to shipments needing longer term or permanent services, but these shipments are placed into areas within the warehouse with little movement to minimize the handling of the vaults. Extra safeguards are provided as required by the length of time that items be in our facility.
Rates for Storage
While every situation will be different in terms of weight and time, charges for our services are determined based on two categories:
- Drayage –The pickup and delivery of stored goods
Warehouse handling which includes offloading, padding and protecting your goods as well as the positioning of your goods into our storage vaults. This charge includes the reverse process when your goods are ready to load and deliver.
- Storage – The number of days or months needed.
All the above are calculated on the basis of dollars per hundredweight based on the total weight of the shipment.
Your shipment will be stored with care and in an orderly fashion. Our warehouse information system tells us exactly where your shipment is located in our warehouse. If you ever need to find and retrieve an item, we’ll be able to find it for you quickly.
We want you want to feel secure about where your goods will be stored, so we invite you to inspect our warehouse facilities at your convenience. You’ll find a clean, modern warehouse that’s well lit and well ventilated to protect your goods against humidity and temperature changes.
