How Self Storage Can Help When Moving House | Multi Store

Moving house is one of life’s most stressful moments but also one of the most exciting, and self-storage can help every step of the way. It saves time and money and makes the move smoother by providing a safe place for your belongings. Even in these challenging times, Smart Storage is open and here to support house-movers and renters.

At Multi-Store, we’ve helped countless homeowners and renters move to a new place, and we want to do the same for you. Take a look at several ways you can benefit from our domestic storage service.

Packing & Unpacking

Packing can be time-consuming but, with self-storage, you can pack your belongings little by little and take it easy. You’ll be free to tackle each room in the home at your leisure instead of feeling pressured to hurry up, and the same goes for unpacking.

After you’ve moved in, you want to have some time to settle in, so gradually unpack the boxes by taking only a few at a time from your storage unit – once you’ve decided where you want to put the items.

At Multi Store, you can even use our units a bit like you would a spare room. For example, if there are items you’re not using currently, you don’t want them crowding your new home, so leave them with us for as long as you need.

Decluttering Your Home

Even if the move doesn’t involve downsizing, why not take the chance to clear out your home?

  • Many people have more items than they think and, if this is your case, self-storage can make it all so much more manageable.
  • Removals companies tend to charge by the hour and by the number of journeys they have to make. If you move some of your possessions into storage, you’ll save on both moving time and money.
  • Decluttering helps you see how furniture will fit in your new place, but it also creates a dilemma. What to keep and what to get rid of? You don’t want to end up giving away or selling sentimental items because you felt hurried.
  • Putting your items in storage will buy you the time you need to make a decision on them. This is especially important if the move comes off the back of a life event like divorce, a new baby or even moving in together for the first time.

Attempts Of Selling A Home

When selling a property, you want to showcase it at its best to make it appealing to potential buyers. This can be difficult to accomplish if your home is cluttered. Self-storage will help make your house or flat look more attractive by creating space.

For instance, take out big furniture pieces that either hinder passageways or simply make a room look small. It’s normal to become blind to how much stuff is around you, so go through everything with a fine comb and keep only a few things on display.

Don’t get too carried away, because you don’t want your home to look completely empty or devoid of personality! The idea is to create an attractive canvas that helps potential buyers imagine themselves living there.

When Your Home Is Under Construction Or Other Projects

When buying a property, it may be easier to stay with family or rent a smaller place whilst selling your current one. It means you can move more quickly when the right house for you comes along.

So, if you do end up in-between homes, it’s likely you won’t have space for all your furniture and packed boxes. And unpacking a huge amount of furniture is not worth it if you’re not staying there long anyway. Take the essentials with you, while storing the rest, which you can retrieve once you’re finally settled in your new home.
