Moving days can be changed or altered due to unforeseeable reasons so covering all your aspects and having a game plan is a necessity. Making reservations with Load and Lock Self Storage and a local moving company, always keep everyone alert of changes. Reserve your storage unit two weeks in advance to save time and frustration with last minute unexpected issues.
