3 ways self storage could benefit you during retirement

You have recently retired, and can’t wait to experience all of the things you have never been able to do before because of work and family commitments. So what’s stopping you? Your house and your belongings, of course; you may be wondering what to do with all of your furniture when you downsize, travel or rearrange your home. Self storage may be a solution you hadn’t considered before. Here are three ways it could benefit you during retirement.

1. Downsize and gradually move your furniture

You no longer need such a large home now that the kids have flown the nest, and by selling it, you can free up some extra cash to do something you have always wanted to do. Storing your furniture while you work out the finer details of the move may be a good idea. This means you can take your time with moving everything into your new home, rather than having to immediately decide where it’s all going to go.

2. Wave goodbye to Manchester and go travelling

The time has finally come to go on that round the world trip you’ve been thinking about for years, so you’re going to sell your house and use the money to travel. Yet you don’t want to sell all of your furniture, only to come back from your trip to absolutely nothing. Placing all of your belongings in a self storage unit will keep them secure until you decide to return to Manchester.

3. Free up room in the home

Now that you’re retired, you may want to spend time improving the home and decluttering. The kids’ rooms are still full of old furniture, even though they moved out years ago, and the attic is packed with boxes that are just collecting dust. All of the surplus items could be kept in a self storage unit, so you can transform your attic or spare room into a home gym, library or new bedroom for the grandkids to stay in. You can then sort through all of the stored items at your leisure.

Highly recommended.

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

100% recommend Storage World. The storage lockers are well priced, secure and very clean. The facility is well set up to make loading and unloading very straight forward. Jeni on the desk was so increddibly helpful and went out of her way to make sure we were well set up and happy. Thanks very much to all at Storage World and particularly Jeni!

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
