Relocating to a new area can be stressful – but hiring a storage unit can make the process of moving house much simpler. Offering a place to keep belongings safe and secure, storage units can provide extra space for valuable items before, during, or after a move. So let’s explore the benefits of using storage during a relocation.
1. Declutter your space
A good sort out before moving house will mean you only move the items you really want, and not the clutter you have accumulated over the years. But what if you are unsure which furniture or belongings you want to bring to your next home? That’s where storage can help.
After decluttering, a storage unit provides a place to keep things until you know what you need at the new house. This can be particularly useful for those who are downsizing to a smaller property.
2. Move at your own pace
Hiring a storage unit means you can move things out of your current home gradually, rather than all at once. As well as saving time on moving day, this will make the whole process much less stressful.
This method also makes moving house more manageable, as you can move boxes and smaller items by car, reducing the amount of time you need to hire a van or removals company.
3. Back up when not ready to buy
If you are relocating further afield, you might be planning to rent for a while to get to know the area or to spend extra time finding the perfect property. In this scenario, a storage unit will provide a place to keep the items you don’t need while renting, allowing you to empty and sell your existing home without worrying about where to keep its contents.
4. Safe and secure
Unlike a shed or garage, a storage unit is securely locked and protected by a security system, giving you the peace of mind that your possessions are safe. Storage units are also designed to keep items clean and dry, so nothing will be damaged while stowed away.
5. Everything in one place
Whether you are downsizing or between properties, finding space for everything can be tricky. A storage unit allows you to keep all of your belongings in one place, instead of storing items with friends and family or losing track of where things are. During a relocation, this also means you won’t need to drive between different locations to pick up your possessions.
6. A helping hand with moving
When you hire a storage unit from a removals company, they may be able to assist with packing, saving you time and hassle. Abbeywood Removals offer a complete or part-pack service, packing either the whole house or just the most valuable items, and putting everything safely into storage so you don’t have to.
Once you are set up in your new property, your belongings will be brought out of storage and delivered to your home.
Whether you are relocating across town or across the country, Abbeywood Removals can help make the whole process run smoothly with our removals and storage services. With no fixed contract, you only pay for storage as long as you need it, so to enquire about hiring a storage unit during a move, complete our contact form or call 01280 813 700
