How Can Self Storage Help With Your House Move?
Self Store services are one of the best ways to alleviate the stress of a house move we know. They allow you to reduce mess, organise your worldly goods and take your time, its all about stress reduction.
Here are 5 great reasons we love self-storage services:
- Most New Homes Need Some Love
I’ve never moved into a new home and thought ‘this isn’t homely’ or ‘it needs a lick of paint’ – have you?
But what I have thought is ‘oh fiddle sticks, i’ve filled every room with boxes and can’t paint until I unpack!’
So I really love self store services because I can dump most of my stuff in there for a week or two, even a few months if I want just until i’ve sorted the house – I take what I need and want and then move in.
- De-Clutter but not throwing away
I can never decide what to throw away. I work for myself and never have a clue what files to keep!
But my other half has a thing for books and puzzles, I wish she would take them to the charity shop, instead we keep them.
If like us you’re a hoarder (even just a little) then a local self-storage unit is ideal, they tend to be affordable and because it’s local its accessible, plus in most cases there is no long term contract (SafeStore in the UK have a 1 week minimum rental)
- Problems on Moving Day
We’ve all been there. Your van breaks down, you have to drive to the other end of the country to help move your other half (personal experience), a window is broken, suddenly the heavens open – all of these can make it hell on earth to move. With self storage you can move all your stuff to the unit over a few days if you wish or longer and not need to rush around – you could do it over a month or two if you really wanted and completely remove the urgent move stress (how awesome would that be – just remember to make a note of where you put everything).
