Questions to ask when preparing for the big move

A new move is a time for a fresh start. There’s no better way to make a clean beginning than by decluttering. Even so, the task may seem daunting if you are a hoarder or have not moved in a while. If you don’t quite know where to begin, try asking yourself these questions:

1. Do I need this item where I am going?

Maybe you are moving to a different climate zone and can do without certain seasonal gear. Perhaps your relocation from the country to a Manchester city apartment means you no longer need patio furniture or a barbecue grill. Don’t get trapped into thinking that you will hold onto these things “just in case.”

2. How will this look in my new home?

You probably have specific furniture pieces or accessories that will not work in your new home. It could be furniture that is too big and bulky or items that do not match the decor. Rather than worrying about trying to make these pieces work, get rid of them so you can buy what you really need.

3. Am I using it now?

We all have stuff we have been holding onto because we might use it someday. In fact, you will probably encounter quite a few of these items when you are packing. If you come across things you are not using now and haven’t utilised in some time, eliminate them. You probably will not use them in your new place either.

4. Do I really want to move this?

If the answers to the above questions are “yes”, the next thing you should ask yourself is whether or not you want to move it. Now is the time to decide just how bad you really need this item and how much you genuinely want to keep it. This is a particularly important question if your new Manchester residence is significantly smaller than your current one.

A self storage unit can be invaluable when decluttering for a move. Once you have gone through your things and packed up the essentials, place them in Manchester storage until you are ready to move. Leave your goods in a safe place after relocating so that you can unpack slowly and keep your new home neat and well organised. To find out more, please contact us today.

Secure Storage Solutions

Clean, safe and secure storage solution at an affordable price, highly recommend this place, very close to the heart of manchester, easy access in and out. Big thanks to Tricia and her team for sorting out my storage needs, very knowledgeable, professional and more importantly friendly.
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% Recommended

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.
