Need Extra Storage?: An Interview with Greg Merritt of Stewart Moving & Storage

By Greg Merritt

Please tell us a little bit about your company and the services you offer.

Stewart Moving & Storage is a full-service moving company for local, long distance, storage, and worldwide moving. We have offices in Jacksonville FL, Pensacola FL, Fayetteville NC, Midlothian VA, and agents for Arpin Van Lines. A large part of our business is providing relocations for civilian and military personnel throughout the country and worldwide.

What are some of the most common reasons that people need a storage unit?

We find that the most common need for storage may be while the customer is transitioning from their old home to their new house. The customer may have sold their house and cannot close for a few weeks on the new house. Also, some customers have taken the advice from their realtor and decluttered some belongings for better home showing. In fact, Stewart Moving & Storage offers our Clutter Buster program that has discounted storage rates with a confirmed local or long-distance move.

How is the storage pricing typically set?

Our storage pricing is typically based on the actual weight of the items being stored. An average room might be approximately 1,000 lbs with an average cost of $45 per month.

Can you briefly talk about the type of security measures there are for stored items?

When items are brought back to our facility for storage, they are padded and placed in large wooden vaults, then sealed until ready for delivery. Our warehouse is completely secured with cameras and monitored 24 hours a day - 7 days a week

Is it safe for homeowners to store valuable products in their storage units?

We suggest to our customers that they keep important papers, documents and high-value items with them, but yes we do store valuable items and antiques.

Do you have any tips for finding a short-term storage solution that's also affordable?

There are many different reasons for customers needing storage. Stewart Moving & Storage can provide the short-term 30 days storage to long-term storage at reasonable and competitive rates.
