      HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! Honestly the best moving experience I had to date! I work in the medical … More field so had a very tight time frame for moving from
      One place to the other. I was very skeptical at first that the moving company will be able to do it all in the time I had, but Top notch movers proved me wrong! 3 guys came in to my apartment they were so fast, efficient, and gentle with my items I was genuinely surprised. They were so respectful and communicated so well with both of the buildings (which can be challenging since my buildings were both in Sunny Isles and Aventura..) And all my furniture made it safely without any problems!
      Could not recommend this company more, if you’re contemplating whether or not to hire this company, think no further!
    • Avatar Ira Silverman ★★★★★ a month ago
      While I do not often do reviews, I felt compelled as this was by far one of my BEST moving … More experiences. From my first call and speaking with Mark, his professionalism, clarity and follow up had me knowing that I was likely going with Top Notch out of the gate. The team of Chris and Ernesto were OUTSTANDING. Smart, also professional, care and efficiency made my move as smooth as it could be. So glad I went with this team and I would not hesitate to use them again and certainly recommend them. No matter how large or small your move is, look no further!
    • Avatar Corey Barberito ★★★★★ in the last week
      Couldn't be happier going with Top Notch for my move. They are exactly that.. Top Notch. … More The guys worked their butts off and did a phenomenal job. Have moved many times in the last few years and that was by far the smoothest move I've ever had allowing me to feel settled in my new place less than an hour after getting finished.

    Moving and Storage company

    How do moving companies store your belongings? 

    • Each mover offers different ways of storing your belongings. Wooden moving crates, metal moving crates, cages, separated storage units, or third-party service providers like storage facilities that they partner with. The job of a moving company is to offer their clients moving and storage services to offer complete moving packages.

    Storing your belongings with a moving company:

    As mentioned above, there are a few different ways for a moving company to store your belongings in their warehouse. The most common way will be to unload and split your belongings between multiple wooden crates that hold around 200 cu. ft. of goods in them. So if you are moving 1200 cu. ft. worth of stuff your items will take up 6 moving crates. 

    Also, items can be stored on pallets, staked carefully, and shrink-wrapped. Common for short to mid-term storage needs. Warehouses of the moving companies can be either climate controlled, ventilated, or neither. We suggest checking with the mover about what type of facility they offer to verify that your belongings will be stored at optimal temperatures.

    Benefits of hiring Top Notch Movers to do both Moving and Storage for you: 

    • One service provider for both. You have one point of contact and can directly call us for both your moving and storage needs.
    • Affordable storage rates for short-term as well as long-term storage for clients that moved with us.
    • Climate-controlled, ventilated, and separate storage units are offered to cater to all of your requests and needs.
    • Your furniture will remain packed with moving blankets during the entire process. It greatly reduces the chances for it to be damaged during moving and storage, or out-of-it. 

    All of the items that are stored with the moving company are always inventoried and accounted for. Inventory lists mark the condition of items, their names, and inventory numbers. You will have a copy of the inventory list on the day of the initial move to storage.

    Storage is billed based on space taken, the amount of work needed to get your items in and out, and the number of moving pads required to keep on your items during the storage period.

    Price for Storage Units

    The cost of renting a storage unit will largely depend on who are you renting the storage from, a mover, or a storage company, and what size of the storage you will need. Moving companies have minimum space reservations at around 200 cu. ft., where the storage companies can offer as small as 100 cu. ft. of space if they have those units available. 

    Moving companies like Top Notch Movers offer Moving and Storage services to clients combining both services helps us and you to make sure that everything is handled by one entity and that your furniture and boxes remain packed and inventoried during the transition from your home to storage and back. Here are the rates for storage that we charge, the prices can change and will depend on the availability, term of storage, and individual cases.

    • 0.45c/cu. ft. Winter 
    • 0.50c/cu. ft. Spring
    • 0.55c/cu. ft. Summer 
    • 0.50c/cu. ft. Fall 

    For example, if you are renting storage in Summer, your rate will be 0.55c/cu. ft. of stored items a month. Average 2 bedroom house with 700 cu. ft. worth of furniture and boxes will be around $385/month. That includes all the fees, taxes, etc. Rates are updated yearly. 

    The average cost of moving and storage services will be around $800 – $1300 to move in, $280 – $470 to store, and $700 – $1100 to move out. These numbers are based on some of our previous moves and an average amount of belongings stored. Two – three bedrooms.

    Renting a storage unit is always a great option to have the space for your items all to yourself. Control, flexibility, and the ability to get your items at any time are all big advantages of renting a storage unit from storage companies like these: 

    • Extra Space 
    • Safeguard 
    • Cubesmart

    Each storage company will have its own offerings, prices, discounts, and deals. But all of them are generally great to store with. Picking up the right company might come down to an individual location that is nearby. Meeting the cost and space requirements that you think will fit your budget is an important task.

    As a moving company, we do prefer our clients to store their furniture and boxes with us, especially if we take care of the complete move, pick-up, and delivery. However, if the client decides on having a more flexible option and will only use us for the delivery or pick-up part of the move we are open to suggesting him or her the best storage facility to store their items meantime.

    When it comes to the cost of the storage unit, the cheapest option will probably be Public Storage, considering their vast network of storage units and some impressive deals for first-time clients. However, we did not like the condition of some locations and services. 

    The cost of the storage units will depend on the time of the year, availability of the units, and their size. Generally speaking, you should expect the cost to be anywhere between $150 to $450 per month all fees included. Our moving experts can help you find the right storage and complete your inventory to understand better the size of the unit you will need. It’s free, no strings attached.

    Pods can be a very good option for some who are seeking temporary or short-term storage. Especially during the renovation inside of the house or any type of construction work that requires you to remove your furniture and miscellaneous items from the house. Moving pods can be delivered to your home and placed in a driveway. Having complete control and ease of access to them is what sets them apart from other storage options on our list.

    • You need short-term storage for your items.
    • Container can be placed directly on your property during renovations.
    • You would like to have full control and flexibility on when to load your items, unload, and give up the container.
    • Not trusting a mover, or not wanting to drive a moving truck without prior experience.

    You don’t have to load or unload the pods, hiring a mover that knows those units and how to properly place furniture and boxes inside of them to avoid damage or waste of space. We at Top Notch Movers are happy to help if any assistance with the loading or unloading of your moving Pods is needed.

    Renting a Pod might not be the cheapest option on the market for some, but convenience and flexibility, in this case, might prevail. Considering the fact that you can have your storage unit placed only a few feet away from your current place of residence.

    The average cost of renting a container for your moving and storage needs is somewhere in the range of $700 to $1200 depending on the size of the container, and the actual amount of containers required to move. 

    Moving is a long and complex process, especially if storage is involved. This is why we advise our clients to do the research and understand what type of storage they require before booking a move. After all, convenience, cost, and access can all change the way you will handle your storage needs. 

    At Top Notch Movers we understand the importance of making the right decision. We recommend reaching out to us today to get all of the necessary information and tailored suggestions for your specific storage problem.

    Cost of Storages

    The price of storage units, and space needed to store your items can vary greatly. Based on the size of the unit, availability, condition of the unit, and if it is climate controlled or not. Would you like to store with us? Let's talk!

    The Average cost of Storing

    We've worked with hundreds of clients, stored their belongings, and advised them when it came to storing their items in an outside storage company. The average cost of storage in Florida will range from $150 to $300 per unit.

    To Store or not to Store

    Did you know that most of the clients who use storage services actually pay more money for the storage itself than the combined worth of the items they are storing? In the end, it all comes down to a sentimental value. This is why it is so important to get a good deal on storage. Let's make a deal!

    Multiple storage facilities provide secure and climate-controlled storage options for individuals seeking to rent a unit independently, without involving a mover to oversee their belongings during or after the move. This choice grants direct access, complete control over the storage unit, and the convenience of accessing it whenever necessary.

    Moving companies collaborate with specific storage facilities to accommodate their own storage needs or store clients’ belongings temporarily or during transit.

    Having worked extensively with storage providers in Florida, we have had the opportunity to experience various storage brands and companies. Based on our personal opinion, we can recommend the following as the top storage providers:

    Top 3 Storage providers in South Florida:

    • Extra Space Storage
    • Safeguard Self Storage
    • Cubesmart Self Storage

    While acknowledging the existence of excellent smaller storage facilities, our experience has shown that these three options consistently provide competitive rates, generous discounts, and meticulously maintained, secure storage solutions. 

    At Top Notch Movers, our preferred choices for storage rentals in South Florida are Extra Space Storage and Safeguard, ensuring that our clients’ belongings are stored at the finest facilities available.

    Furniture Storage

    When it comes to storing furniture for an extended period, a moving company’s responsibility extends beyond handling the items with care. It is crucial for us to guide clients in selecting the appropriate type of storage facility that ensures the safety of their belongings during storage.

    For optimal preservation, climate-controlled units are recommended. They protect items from heat, excessive humidity, and pests. Additionally, it is important to note that first-floor storage units are more suitable for short-term storage. Our suggestion is to rent a storage unit located on the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th floor for long-term storage purposes.

    Alternatively, you can take advantage of our storage offering, where we securely store your furniture and boxes within our wooden crates. Our warehouse is diligently maintained, and wooden crates provide one of the safest storage options available. The only drawback is that accessing your items may be limited in this case.
