Self-storage advice for downsizing your home

With moving house to a significantly smaller property comes the stress of deciding what to do with your belongings. Often, there are many bits and pieces unused for years that you dread throwing away, as well as personal items that you know you’ll use in the future but don’t necessarily need at the moment. Self-storage is the perfect solution when it comes to downsizing. Here are 3 reasons why.

1. Save family heirlooms

When moving house, it’s typical that you’ll come across many precious items that have been passed down through the generations that simply can’t be discarded. Hiring a self-storage unit means that you still have access to them and can allow family members to come and take a look at them whenever they choose.

2. Doubles as a garage space

If you decide to by an apartment or a terraced house, the chances of owning a garage are very slim. Hiring a self-storage unit means that you can store tools, bicycles and garden equipment safely and securely. The likelihood of using these items during the winter months is highly unlikely, and therefore they won’t be missed too much anyway.

3. Organisation

When downsizing, making sure not to clutter is hard when you have so many items to accommodate. The living space can looked cramped and untidy, and it may be hard to place your hand on things you desperately need. Organisation is the key. Self-storage allows you to be free of unnecessary clutter when you move to your new property and buy furniture and homewares that suit the space.

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.
