Why You Should Use Self Storage When Moving

Green Self Storage

Moving house can be a stressful and challenging time, as well as exciting. You are looking forward to a change of scene and a fresh start, but there is so much to think about. When you are considering moving all of your possessions from one place to another, have you ever thought about how self-storage could make your move easier?

If not, read on! We are sharing some great reasons to use storage to have the best moving experience possible.

Declutter ahead of your move

Moving can be an expensive and labour-intensive process. If you have lived in one place for a long time, you most likely have a lot of clutter that you do not want around when you move. Some of your possessions may be donated or sold, but if you want to keep these items but not have them cluttering up your move, use a storage unit to keep things out of the way!

Account for delays

Sometimes, a move does not line up as perfectly as you might want it to. You may end up moving out of one property before you have access to your new place. If you find yourself needing to stay with a friend or in alternative accommodation for a while, self-storage will come in handy. You can keep all of your things safe and not have to rush your move or say no to a property because the timing isn’t exactly right.

Inspect a home thoroughly

Once you have chosen a home, you want the opportunity to explore it thoroughly and perhaps even renovate it. Even if you just want to paint your new property, this can be difficult to do once all your possessions have been moved in. Storage units allow you some breathing space where you can examine your new home while it is still empty, and do any essential works on it without worrying about damaging your things.

Keep expensive items safe

Do you have valuable items that you worry about during moves? It is all too easy to lose or damage those precious pieces of furniture or boxes of photographs in the craziness of a big move. When you choose self-storage, your most valuable items (both financially speaking and from a sentimental perspective) are kept away from the hustle and bustle. This means they will remain safe and undamaged until you can place them carefully in their new space.

Perfect for downsizing

Are you in the process of downsizing and you aren’t sure how all your items are going to fit into your new house? Self-storage is a great way to store your stuff so you have time to decide what you need and what you don’t – there’s no need to rush the decision!
