Inherited a property? Consider a self storage unit

The death of a close loved one will always be a complicated time. Not only do you have the rush of emotions surrounding your loss, combined with the happy memories you will keep, but there are also a number of practical things you must attend to; registering the death, organising a funeral and sorting out the will.

Inheriting a home and all the furniture might be something you have prepared for, but the shock of the death will make everything more difficult. The person is no longer there, but their house and all their possessions are, often a whole lifetime’s worth of accumulated furniture and trinkets.

The vast majority of the items are going to be worth little, but still, have enormous emotional significance to you. As such, it can be extremely difficult to know what to do with everything, especially at a time close to the death. Combined with this, there is the question of what to do with the house. Most people will choose to rent it or sell it as quickly as possible so that they don’t lose money by having it sit there and grow decrepit. The question arises, what should I do with all the possessions?

An excellent solution would be to rent a self-storage unit and place the items and furniture there. By keeping everything in storage, you can get the house rented or sold as quickly as possible, while still keeping hold of the possessions while you work out how to distribute them. Equally, when renting a storage unit, you can visit it as frequently as you like, meaning that you can come and sort out the items as and when you feel emotionally ready, without having the items in your garage, cluttering up the place and causing you upset.

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.

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.
