4 Benefits of storage services when moving home
Moving house can often feel like a trial by fire. Stressful, laborious, it never seems to end. Storage is an excellent way to mitigate the problems and anxiety that go hand in hand with a move. Here are four great benefits to using storage when you are moving to a new home…
1. Smoothing out the links in the chain
One of the worst things that can happen to you when you’re moving house is securing a buyer for your own home before you’ve found your new dream house. Whether you have yet to exchange contracts, have finalised the purchase but are unable to move in immediately, or are still looking for the perfect property, if you need to vacate your existing home and have nowhere to go it can create a lot of problems.
Storage creates an effective and affordable solution. Pack up your stuff ready to move, pop all but the essentials in storage, and stay in a hotel, B&B or with friends and family until your new home is ready. No muss, no fuss, no need to miss out on the perfect buyer for your old home.
If you’re downsizing but don’t necessarily want to get rid of a lot of stuff, so storage is the ideal solution. Whether it’s beloved furniture you don’t have space for but can’t bear to part with, childhood treasures and items you never use but don’t want to let go of, or simply a case of being uncertain of what will work in your new house and what needs to go, storage gives you a safe and easily accessible place for your excess belongings.
3. Stress-free unpacking
Unpacking after a move is a nightmare. When boxes are piled high in every room, there’s nowhere to seat, and you can’t find anything for love nor money, the moving process becomes drawn out and increasingly stressful.
Storage offers you an easy solution. Rather than taking everything to your new home and stuffing it full of boxes, take the essentials first, and leave the rest in storage. Unpack a few items at a time. If you’re really organised, you can pack your belongings so that your things are accessible in easily unpacked stages. Do one room at a time, or categorise everything according to how soon you will need it.
4. An extra room
Few people consider this when they move house, but it’s actually extremely easy to ensure you have a whole extra room at your disposal, simply by renting a storage space. From purpose built heated warehouse facility, self contained storage or large storage units, we have the right solution for you to store your belongings securely.
