Why You Should Use Self Storage During a House Move

Moving house can be a challenging and daunting task, requiring plenty of planning and organising. Packing up your entire house and all of your belongings is a stressful process that can take weeks or even months to complete. While self storage may not be a solution that you have considered during a house move, you may be surprised to find that using a self storage unit during a house move can make the process significantly easier. Read on to find out how.

Declutter the home for potential buyers

To you, a home full of your favourite possessions and pieces of furniture may seem like the perfect environment. If you are looking to sell up, however, a potential buyer may view lots of items and pieces of furniture as clutter. Consider packing up items that are overcrowding your home until after the sale is made.

 Clearing unused items from each room of your home and putting them into storage is an easy way to create more space, make rooms appear larger and best showcase your home. Clearing away bikes and equipment from the outside of your home can make it appear tidier – something that can change a buyer’s perception of your home.

Simplify the moving process

It’s no secret that moving house is a huge challenge, with the actual moving day being one of the most stressful days of the year. Packing up your entire home, loading possessions into removal vans and unloading them at your new house is exhausting- cramming this all into one day can be extremely stressful. This is where self storage can be a blessing.

Slowly packing up items that you do not use every day and putting them into storage can stagger the process and make your move feel less daunting. Rather than overcrowding your home with packed up boxes and items, keeping them in a safe and secure storage unit frees up space and helps you to stay organised during the packing process.

Unpack slowly

While you may want to move in, unpack and settle as quickly as possible, the process does take time. Waiting to unpack everything into your new home all at once can be extremely beneficial. You can clean your brand new home thoroughly before moving things in and take the time to properly plan out each room and where you will put pieces of furniture. Keeping items in storage while you unpack minimises stress and means that you can unpack over a few weeks, rather than one day.

Perhaps your new home needs some renovations or redecorating done in order to truly make it yours. If you want to add new carpet, paint the walls or knock through a wall or two, self storage is an ideal option. Important possessions and pieces of furniture will be kept out of the way, ensuring that they remain clean and safe until the work is done.
