Moving house can be a daunting task, and one that takes a great deal of planning. If you are in the process, think about using storage to help break up the move, make sure the move happens, or help with longer term plans.

When planning to use storage companies shop around. Look at removals and storage company reviews. Some companies have introductory offers. Closely read the small print and plan your costs. Make a schedule for how long you will use storage and stick to it. This way you can stay on budget and take advantage of the positive reasons to use storage in your house removals process.

  • Moving items to storage early in the moving process will help to de-clutter your home. De-cluttering is a major part of all removals.
  • Using storage to reduce the volume of items in your home when you book with your removals company will bring down the cost. The more items you have, the more volume it takes up, the more time it takes to move and thus the higher cost. 
  • By moving items into storage you will be able to create more space within your home. Moving items will help to open up your house. De-cluttering and making it clean and tidy will make it more attractive to prospective buyers.
  • You will have time to arrange the items that are moved to your new home before taking everything else out of storage. Breaking up the move and making it less daunting.
  • You may wish to renovate, redecorate, or complete building works in part or throughout your new home. Putting items into storage is a great solution to keeping your belongings clean and safe during this process. Pack your items away with a plan. As areas are completed, move items back out of storage into those rooms or areas.

  • Your move may be short term or temporary, with plans to move again in the not too distant future. In this case you may only wish to only move your essentials. The rest of your belongings could be kept in storage until you settle again.
  • If something goes wrong in the chain during your move, you may want to move the bulk of your belongings into storage to allow you to complete your end of the sale. You can rent, or stay somewhere temporarily and once resolved move your items from storage to your new home.
  • You may have worries about special or valuable items being broken or stolen during your removal. Storage gives you extra time to wrap, prepare and protect your items. Move anything you wish to take extra care with into storage yourself for peace of mind. Once your house removal is complete these extra special items can be taken out of storage.
