Renovating your home? Let self-storage help!

There are many reasons for renovating your home – many of us recently have been spending more time in the home and are using our home space differently, realising that we need to make modifications to suit these new and revised ways of living.


In most cases, renovating your home can help increase the value but depending upon the scale of your project it can be a crazy time and you need to consider what is needed to make it efficient and stress free.

There are a number of reasons why putting your things into a short-term storage unit could help make things stress free.

Let the builders focus on getting the job they have been hired to do done. You don’t want any delays, or anything damaged and if they have a clear space, you will find that they can get to the task at hand and efficiently undertake the work they have been hired to do. You don’t want the builders to have to slow down to ensure things are protected. The slower they work, the longer you may have to wait for it to be completed, which can cost more in hours and delay the completion.

Building work creates dust, it doesn’t matter how well you box everything up and shut doors – the dust from building-works gets everywhere. Protect your possessions by taking it off site to a secure storage area.

Piling up furniture and possessions in rooms that aren’t being refurbished, reduces your living space (if you are still in the house) and can create more chaos at what is, a crazy time, adding unnecessary stress. Take away things you can live without for a short period of time, allowing you a better chance of finding what you need in a temporary re-organised home.

Reduce the chance of furniture getting damaged by renovation tools, paint and dust. Don’t take chances that your things will be okay by taking them off the building site and keeping them in a facility that will ensure they are safe, secure and dry.
