Renovating your home? Don’t forget to use self storage

2 Min Read

Hometrack recently revealed that house prices in Greater Manchester are rising at a faster rate than anywhere else in the country. In fact, properties are now worth an estimated 8.8% more than they were just one year ago. Of course, this isn’t a problem for people who have got a little money to splash around. However, if you’re already living in the district you might want to consider going down a cheaper route by renovating your current home rather than buying a new one. If you do, you should keep your belongings in self storage – both before and after the work. Here’s why:


Whether you hire professional help or you do-it-yourself, renovating a property can be a rather messy job. There can be many hazards knocking around – including paint, plaster and power tools. The last thing you want to happen is for one of your prized possessions to become lost or damaged within all the chaos. Therefore, make sure they’re stored away safely in one of our units in Middleton or Manchester city centre.


Renovations can be a pain in the neck. Often they overrun, meaning you have to live through weeks – if not months – of work being completed in your home. Luckily, the process is likely to run faster if there are less of your belongings causing clutter and obstructing efficiency.


Once your belongings are tucked away in our units, you should find that it establishes a sense of order in your home. This is obviously important during the renovation when you’ll be trying your hardest to keep the place organised. However, it should also make a difference once the work has been carried out. Your home might actually look brand new once you’ve overhauled its appearance and made it look more spacious by keeping your belongings in self storage.

Home sweet home

Seriously, who needs a new home when you can just transform your current one? Just because house prices are hitting an all-time high doesn’t mean that you can’t say ‘out with the old and in with the new’. Just remember, the process starts with investing in our affordable self storage units.
