Camelot receives calls from panicked clients that find themselves between homes without a place to keep their belongings.

At an ever-increasing rate, Camelot receives calls from panicked clients that find themselves between homes without a place to keep their belongings. What should you do if you find yourself (or a friend) in this situation? Is storage the answer? If so, is self storage really the most cost-effective solution?

The best solution is to avoid if at all possible the cost, labor, and wear and tear of moving your items to storage, storing your items, and then moving them out of storage. Though this bit of advice will decrease demand for Camelot’s expert services, we still encourage you to see if there is anyway to stay put in your current home until your new one becomes available. Can you rent back your old property? This very well could be the most cost-effective solution. Discuss this option with your Realtor and the buyers of your home.

If you do realize that you must find short-term storage for your belongings, should you use vaulted storage, like the storage services that Camelot provides? Or should you go with self storage? A few factors to keep in mind:

Self storage might be less expensive from month to month than vaulted storage, but it will not include the same degree of services or protection. For example, what are you receiving in terms of security and climate control at your self storage facility versus an indoor warehouse? Are your comfortable with the amount of security provided at your storage facility? Do your stored items require a maintained temperature? Hint: Most photos and artwork do! If your storage needs are of a simpler nature then self storage may be your answer.

As to services, you will need to load your belongings into self storage, and time is money. Vaulted storage has less labor expense since there is no unloading once your things have been placed into storage vaults. Loading and unloading are a one-time task and/or fee no matter how long you store your items, whereas the monthly storage rate will continue to add up the longer you store your items. With this in mind, how long will your items be in storage? What is your budget—both time and money availability—for the cost of moving and storing your belongings?

Camelot would be happy to discuss your particular storage needs and options and guide you in the direction that best suits your needs. The Camelot family welcomes you to take an online tour or a physical tour of our state-of-the-art warehouse. Call or stop by Camelot today!
