When self storage can help during your house move

  • Decluttering: giving an impression of more space can make your property easier to sell.
  • Space to sort: move out things that you’re unlikely to need on a day-to-day basis to avoid piles of boxes stacked up.
  • Downsizing: if you are moving into a smaller property but still want to keep some of your possessions then keeping them in storage makes sense.
  • Moving in together: if you’ve got 2 of everything, it can be helpful to store some of your belongings while you work out what you both need and like.
  • Waiting for the perfect property: if you’ve sold your home but not yet found the next one, self-storage can be a short-term solution. Take only what you need and leave everything else packed up for the final move.
