Since many movers charge by the estimated weight of your belongings and airlines are charging $50+ for each bag you bring with you, it may actually be less expensive to ship some of your items directly to storage. We are unique in that we accept deliveries and will actually put them into your unit for you upon delivery. For instance, the United States Postal Service has a program called Media Mail that can cost you less than one half of a cent per pound to ship books. This is handy to know if movers charge you by the pound because a box of books can be quite heavy.
If you know that you will be here for a few months, you can always ship your clothes, golf bags, etc to us and we can put them right into your unit so your packages will be here waiting for you when you arrive. This saves money on costly airline charges.
You can go to the USPS, Fed Ex, and UPS websites to compare shipping prices on your packages. However, be aware that UPS Stores and Pack and Ship stores all typically have some kind of surcharge for their services, and are more than usual a bit more expensive. It is usually less expensive to schedule a pick up at your location and pay by credit card over the computer.
