Moving back home – tips to make the transition easier for all 

Life is a journey, and there’s more than one way to enjoy the many milestones. While some people leave home to study at college before finding a job, others may move back home to save money while studying or while undergoing a personal or professional change.   

As more millennials are moving back home with their parents, we’ve put together a few tips to make the transition easier for all. 

Allocate chores fairly 

Many hands make light work, and the household chores should be divided equally to avoid adding unnecessary pressure on any one person. There are different ways to allocate chores, from taking turns or setting specific chores for specific people.  

Ask about the house rules 

When you’re living with someone else, it’s important to ask about the house rules and be sure to follow them. House rules play a valuable role in achieving a balance in the household and instilling an attitude of respect.  

Set a timeline 

Some students move back into their childhood home for a few years while studying, while others live with their parents as a temporary solution. Before you unpack your bags, make sure to discuss a timeline to help manage expectations. 

Talk about problems when they arise 

As with all living arrangements, there may be times when the home situation gets tense. If you experience any frustrations, then it’s best to speak about them. Make sure that you communicate your grievances with respect, and be open to constructive criticism. 

Prioritise quality time 

Moving back home as an adult involves a different experience than living under your parents’ roof as a young child. There’s an opportunity to create new, mature memories with your parents, so make the most of it. Make an effort to regularly eat meals together, join your parents to watch their favourite sitcom or chat over your morning cup of coffee. 

While your childhood home may serve as a temporary household base, our affordable self storage units at Storage World provide a space for your belongings. With three conveniently located storage facilities across Greater Manchester, you have the choice of where to keep your student and household belongings for as long or as short as you need.

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.
