Hiring a storage unit when a loved one passes away

Dealing with the death of a loved one can be an extremely traumatic time, especially when you are forced to clear out possessions and decide what is worth keeping and what to throw away. This decision alone can be highly unsettling, as no-one likes to throw away belongings that once meant so much to someone. This is where self-storage can help to take those pressures away.

1. Clearing out the property

If your loved one lived in a council property, there is usually only a couple of weeks to empty the house and hand over the keys. This strain can have an immense impact on family members, who in their moment of grief, are on a time constraint to get things sorted. If this is the situation that you are in, a self-storage unit means that you can sort out these possessions when you are in a better frame of mind.

2. Selling the property

If, on the other hand, the property was owned by your loved one, clearing out the house to sell up is another important factor to take into consideration. Potential buyers will want to see a blank canvas that they can put their own stamp on, rather than entering a house that is still a home. Hire a unit to clear the house temporarily.

3. Hold onto memories

If your loved one had precious items that hold memories that you simply can’t give away, hiring a unit would be great if you just haven’t got the space in your own home to keep them.

4. Store larger items

If you have thrown away all of the little things, but are yet to sort out the larger items such as furniture, a storage until would be ideal if those pieces are intended to be passed down to family members who may need them at some point.

If you are local to greater Manchester and need the stress taken off your hands quickly, please give us a call today so that we can preserve the items of your recently deceased loved one. We are truly sorry for your loss and will be happy to help at this difficult time.

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.

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.
