Use Self Storage to Make Moving House Easier

In a recent survey of 2,000 UK homeowners, moving house was found to top the list of the most stressful events in life. If you are in the process of selling your house, you know just how demanding it can be. But there’s an easy way to reduce the hassle and make the transition as smooth as possible, using self storage to store your belongings while you sell your home. Find out more about how we can help you make selling and moving home easier.

Make your home look more spacious and welcoming

Self storage gets clutter out of the way while showing your house to estate agents and buyers. When you’re trying to sell your house, you want it to look as clean, open, and inviting as possible. If you’ve got items cluttering up the space, putting them in storage will help make sure that buyers get a good first impression when they see your home. Prospective buyers are more likely to make an offer if they can see themselves living in a welcoming, uncluttered space.

Keep your possessions and important documents safe

Keeping items in storage protects them while your home is on the market. You don’t want to risk anything getting damaged or stolen while your house is up for sale. When you use our self storage facilities in Somerset your possessions are safely packed away until you can get settled in your new home.

Move into temporary accommodation between properties

You may need to keep your things somewhere while you move into a temporary rental property or stay with family until the sale of your home goes through, or after finishing a tenancy. It may work out cheaper to use self storage for your belongings than to hire a moving company to move everything twice. It also allows you to pack just the essential items for your temporary accommodation. Any money you save means more money for all the other expenses that come along with moving house!

Getting your new home into shape

Keeping some of your stuff in self storage, even for just a short term rental, gives you the opportunity to get work done on your new home. New carpets, plastering, redecorating, plumbing or electrical work, you don’t want your possessions in the way, or worse, broken and damaged whilst these projects are being completed. It’s always easier to move the majority of your belongings into the property after these jobs have been finished.

Be prepared for the unexpected

When you’re moving home, it’s best to start planning as early as possible, and to keep a realistic schedule. A whole host of things can go wrong to interrupt the smooth move from your old home to the new. Mortgage delays, removal companies letting down buyers, a link in the chain breaking, be prepared. If possible make sure you have some flexibility in your plans.
