A SMOOTH EXPERIENCE FROM START TO STORAGE!

Offering secure and private storage in Hyattsville, MD and Elkridge, MD!

Bookstore Movers offers a full-service, all-in one storage option where we provide your move into our storage facility and your move out as well.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

How do I pay for storage?

Payment for long term storage is charged via credit card. If you are switching from short to long term, the total short term charge and the first month of long term is due upon receipt of your invoice which you will receive after the 30th day of storage. The following months are due on the same date each month and will be automatically charged via Square. We require all clients set up a recurring charge for storage.

Can I stay in storage longer than I originally booked for?

Sure!

  • Pricing – the above short term pricing will be applied up to 30 days. After 30 days, you would just be switched to the long term pricing structure.
  • Location – if you decide to keep your belongings in our storage beyond the original time frame, that is no problem but we may move the inventory to our larger warehouse nearby. It will be just as safe and secure and this does not change the costs.
Why choose Bookstore Movers for my storage needs?<br>

We offer the convenience of handling both the move and storage for you so you’ll have less errands, saving you time and hassle!  If you choose our private storage, you won't need to accompany us to that location. We'll arrive at your starting location, take a careful inventory and wrap all items and then transport everything to our storage. Your crew chief will call you once the move is complete that afternoon, and within 1-2 days you will receive your online invoice for both the move and the first month of storage. Our warehouse is secure, video-monitored, and private as we only allow access with an appointment and manager present.

We are happy to prepare a detailed estimate, and we just need your inventory and other details noted on our request form. Once we receive your form, we can typically respond within an hour or two with your estimate. 

Where will my items be stored?

We offer storage at our headquarters in Hyattsville, Maryland and at a great new facility in Elkridge, MD.

When should I contact Bookstore Movers?

As soon as you’re ready to plan, fill out our form as we’re available 7 days a week (except for federal holidays) and we’re more than happy to provide an estimate for your needs. Typically the sooner you get in touch, the more likely we’ll be able to accommodate your time and date preferences (3-5 weeks is typically best).

What information do I need to provide?

Our estimate form will prompt you for everything we’ll need to provide the estimate. We’ll just need the addresses and logistical information about each address (stairs, elevator access, etc), and we’ll also ask for the entire inventory to move and store, and your preferred dates!

Should I use climate controlled storage or regular storage?

We’re happy to offer both options. Our warehouse stays fairly temperate so even the non-climate controlled storage vaults offer great protection from the elements and the humidity is monitored as well. However, if you do prefer the climate-controlled option, we have spaces available which are controlled to 72 degrees 24/7.

What is Full Value Protection?

We can offer a Full Value Protection policy that would make us legally obligated to compensate full replacement/repair value for a damaged item, and some folks just like that peace of mind. If you are interested in additional coverage, please provide a breakdown of the items to be covered (and their values) and we'll get back to you with more information.

What materials can you provide?

We currently offer:
- $3 per storage paper pad
- $10 per mattress bag
- $10 per high quality moving pad (limit of 10 pads per customer)
- $25 roll plastic wrap
- $20 per wardrobe box purchase

Can I visit my storage unit?

Yes! Although we are a private facility, we do have appointments available (a fee is involved) when you can meet with a crew or managers to access your items. If you are in storage with us, just email us a few times that might work for you and we'll respond promptly! We typically as for 48 hours notice of a visit to our facility.

How do I choose which items not to place in storage??

It's important to note that we don't allow the standard prohibited items such as flammables, liquids, etc, but we also would recommend keeping important paperwork, identification, medicine, and other personal items with you. Anything that is urgent or that you use often should not be placed in storage.
