Among the excitement of moving house, there comes the logistical challenge of packing, transporting, and unpacking your belongings. Whether you're downsizing, upgrading, or just in need of a temporary space to store your items, self-storage can be a game-changer that simplifies your move and eases your transition into a new chapter of life.
One of the most stressful parts of moving is the lengthy process of packing and organising all your belongings. By starting early, you can take some more time to properly sort and pack your items. When packing, you will need a clear system to make the unpacking process as easy as possible. Label your boxes with their contents and the room they belong to, and make sure that breakable items are fully protected and marked as fragile.
When packing, your home can become cluttered with boxes and make it difficult to work out what items are left to pack. By moving your completed packing into storage, you can free up space in your home for a less stressful experience. When putting your household items into short term storage, be sure to organise your storage space with the boxes you will need first closest to the entrance – you don’t want to have to search through your whole storage unit to find your kettle!
Spread out the process of moving by using a short term storage unit. This is a great solution to reduce the amount of furniture you will have to cram into a van on moving day. Self storage allows you to move your belongings at your own pace, reducing the hassle of moving into a new home.
… And Moving In
When downsizing, some of your belongings may not fit in your new home. It can take some time to comfortably arrange your space after moving in, and you can keep your furniture items in storage while you decide what to do with them. Whether you decide to sell, donate or give your furniture pieces to family or friends, we will help you find the perfect size unit to store them.
If your new home needs painting or renovations, you may need to store your furniture and belongings elsewhere to protect them from paint and dust. Self storage can act as a temporary holding ground as you get settled into your home, keeping your belongings safe and accessible 24/7 whenever you’re ready for them.
