Three Ways Self-Storage Will Lighten the Load When Moving House

Sep 29. 2020

Never underestimate the value of self-storage during the house moving process. No matter what stage of the process you’re at, be this at the early stages of putting your house on the market, or filling boxes in readiness for moving day, self-storage will be a remarkably valuable facility to help you though.

  1. You’ll be show home ready

No one lives in a show home, so having to tidy up every single time there’s a viewing on your property soon becomes incredibly tiresome. Having to throw everything into cupboards and under beds can easily be avoided by having one de-clutter of the premises and allocating some of the less essential possessions into self-storage. If the property remains on the market for some time, you’ll be thankful that some of your household effects have a second home for a while.


2.Give it room to breathe

Less is often more and this is particularly pertinent when choosing which furniture and possessions to leave in your home for property viewings. Most prospective buyers are looking for space in a property and that is particularly relevant at the present time, where buyers are looking for room to work from home and carry out more activities a home. The more you can de-clutter, the more of a light, airy and spacious feel the rooms will have. Over-furnished properties can often be off-putting to buyers and run the risk of hiding the properties true assets.


3. You can pack like a pro

Packing your home up is no easy task. Even the most methodical of packers find that it turns their homes upside down and leaves the property in disarray for a while. The advantage of self storage is that it gives you the option of packing in phases and storing boxes away as they are filled.
This also means that once you’ve arrived in the new premises, the unpacking can also been done in phases. Unpacking the most essential items first and collecting those in self storage at a later date. It will also make any decorating of the new premises easier, if you opt to leave the items in self store for longer.
