You almost always hear the word “moving” in the same breath as “storage.” There’s a good reason. Very few moves take place without some form of storage. Whether it’s storage in transit before final delivery to the home—or longer-term warehousing for additional weeks, months, or even years—storage is practically synonymous with moving.
Household Goods Storage
At Weleski Transfer, we provide storage options for practically any moving scenario. The largest part of our warehouse space, about 350,000 square feet (between our three locations in Pittsburgh, Johnstown and Cleveland), is used for palletized household goods storage. About a third of this is also approved for the military—we are proud to serve our nation’s service men and women when they transfer.
We keep our customers’ household goods inside sturdy, uniformly sized containers and organized on racks. Some things are too large to fit in the containers, and we keep those items in a mezzanine dedicated especially for overstuffed and bulky items. At our Cleveland facility, we have also invested in an industrial rack system with built-in sprinklers. Throughout all of our facilities we maintain systems to monitor for intrusion, fire, smoke, and water. Keeping goods secure while in our possession is a high priority.
Climate Controlled Storage
We also maintain about 15,000 square feet of climate controlled storage. We regulate the temperature and humidity to make this space suitable for many different kinds of sensitive goods, from fine art and museum pieces to wine collections, x-ray films, and more.
We also dedicate about 150,000 square feet to commercial storage. Store fixtures, furnishings, electronic equipment—we store a variety of goods. And we coordinate their movement to all sorts of commercial destinations—office buildings, factories, stores, restaurants and hotels.
We also maintain a separate self-storage facility for our customers. This storage option is useful when people need quick and/or frequent access to their things. Of our 200,000 square feet of self-storage space, about ten percent is heated.
Many businesses require offsite data storage, and they count on Weleski Transfer to keep their records safe, whether paper or digital media. We also offer destruction in industrial shredders with official proof of destruction.
In future blog posts, I’ll go into our storage capabilities in more detail. For now, suffice it to say if you have a need for storage when you move, we have the facilities to keep your things secure until you are ready to take delivery. Contact us today, or give us a call now: 888-224-3330
