Our sellers have had very good experiences using temporary storage containers (such as PODS or PackRat) to store clutter while preparing their home for sale. Some sellers end up using them for the entire move, often in combination with hired labor. As of this writing, a 16-foot container (holds approximately 4 rooms) was $69 for drop off and pick up, plus $155/month for secure, climate-controlled storage, plus a second $69 at final drop off and pick up. The other alternative is hauling material to and from a storage location, which is less expensive, but more work for you.images
