How does self storage bridge gaps between moving dates?

Many studies have shown that moving home is one of the most stressful things you can do in your life. It’s not just leaving behind the house you have called home – visiting estate agents, arranging viewings, making offers, surveys, moving companies, and, if you have children, moving them to new schools, are just some of the many stresses you can go through when making the big move.

There are many things that can delay the sale of your home that are often out of your control. Of course you don’t want to end being the party that causes further delays so here’s how self storage units can help you.

If you’re part of a chain

Often you will find that you are part of a chain of sales, each purchaser relying on the seller before them to have a smooth house buying journey. If you find yourself stuck with a gap between completing on the sale of your home and being able to move into your new residence you may find you have furniture and belongings that have to leave your old home but don’t have a new home to go to themselves. It’s at this point you may want to consider household storage options and furniture storage facilities to lighten the load.

If you have to move into temporary accommodation

If there is a long gap between moving dates you may well have to consider temporary accommodation or staying temporarily with family or friends. It’s quite likely you will want to keep these costs low and so may well be looking to stay somewhere much smaller than you are used to.

Self storage facilities come in all shapes and sizes and are perfect for use as furniture storage facilities in the interim. Chelsea Self Storage offers storage in west London and beyond on a variety of terms with regards to space and rental time.

If your downsizing and need to create space

It’s also worth considering self storage if you are downsizing to a smaller property and wish to sell on some of your items. Self storage can be used as household storage whilst you move into your new property and give you the time to sell off items you no longer need or can store items that you wish to give to relatives – such as family heirlooms.

If you leaving your home vacant

Self storage facilities are safe and secure minimising the worry when you are moving home. If you are moving into your new home but your old home is likely to be vacant for some time it may be sensible to move any excess belongings into a storage unit. For secure household storage across the London area – Chelsea Self Storage offer a variety of options for storage in west London.
