“Dear PoPville,

Four of my roommates, two cats, and I are moving about five blocks east from our current row house in Logan Circle to a beautiful row house in Shaw with a great deal more space. However, we have to be out of our current house by 5pm on the the August 31st, and will not be allowed into the new house until the morning of September 1st. We all have other places that we can temporarily stay, but we don’t have other places to temporarily store our things. We don’t have a great deal of furniture as our current row house only has one small living area and kitchen and we don’t plan on taking the current couches with us to the new house, but there are still five bedrooms full of beds, desks, and dressers.

We figured our options would be to either rent a U-Haul for a day or two, use a portable storage service such as a PODS, or to hire professional movers who would be able to store our stuff temporarily.

We wanted to know if anyone had any other options or recommendations for dealing with a gap between leases and if there were any recommended moving companies who handled temporary storage issues.”
