Many folks find it good, if not critical, to de-clutter their residence ahead of a move. Others will have to move out of their old house ahead of when their new residence is prepared for occupancy. And still others could have all kinds of reasons for not being able to take delivery of their things to their new home immediately. What should they do with their possessions? They find a place to keep it.
