Benefits of storage during a home makeover

If you’re having work done at home, whether it’s a redecorating job, a complete makeover or making structural changes such as adding an extension, it can be disruptive to home life. To make matters worse, your possessions and furniture might get in the way, which means they’ll need to be moved so work can take place.

Whilst small items can be easily moved into another room, it may not be so easy to move large, bulky or heavy items from one room to another during home renovations. Most of us simply lack that extra space.

A really useful option to consider when undertaking a home makeover is to put your excess items into self storage. Many people think of self storage primarily for use when moving home, but the wide options available and affordability make it a great choice for lots of other scenarios, such as making space during a home makeover. You can often store items for a short time or longer, allowing you to fit your self storage needs around how long it takes to get the home renovations completed.

Keeping your items in self storage during home renovations means you can rest assured that they aren’t going to get damaged in any way when work is taking place. This could be from splashes of paint, dust, debris, chemicals or fumes. If any part of your home is being exposed to the outside during work, such as if you’re having a new roof fitted, it also makes sense to ensure your possessions are protected from the outside elements.

Another advantage of having your belongings kept in storage facilities during home renovations is that once work is completed, you can restyle your room from scratch. By having an empty space, you can then decide where to put your items once you retrieve them from self storage. A home makeover, even just redecorating walls or having a new carpet fitted, can make a room feel completely different from before, so like a blank canvas, you can plan the layout of the room before your items are safely and securely returned.

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.

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.
