You might be able to sell your house more quickly and for more money if you store surplus ‘clutter’ out of the home in order to show it off to it’s best.
We have had customer, looking for storage for a house move, phone us on a Wednesday, who have sold their house ONLY IF they are out of it by Friday – they have moved their household contents into our store to take them selves out of the chain and enable them to take the best deal that came along for their house.
Once out of the chain, you may be a cash buyer once more and able to make cash offers to get the best deal on your next home.
Remember, where house values are concerned, you are normally looking at thousands or tens of thousands of pounds – compared to potentially only a few hundred pounds of storage costs.
If your young family is growing, in numbers and/or size, then some items that may not currently be needed like prams and cots can be kept out of the way, or some items just have to be moved out to make room for more bodies.
These items can extend to seasonally or occasionally used items such as Christmas decorations, luggage, garden furniture, etc.
Hobbies often tend to accumulate either a growing number of items, or large items not possible for storage at home. A local household storage solution can mean easy access when required, i.e. a weekend away, or an evening out.
Again, season storage may be chosen for classic cars, motor bikes, water sports equipment, for example.
In this modern world this can often be two people with established homes moving in together with many duplicated items, or just more stuff than can be kept in the new shared home – self storage can help with this.
When people do not want to be in a larger house that they brought the family up in, but still have items that cannot be disposed of quickly, or just need to be kept, domestic self storage is a good buffer to assist with the change.
Again, sadly, we have helped people whose elderly relatives have either had to leave their home for a care home, or have died. Furniture has been stored with us whilst arrangements are made for other relatives to take it, or to be sold.
Sometimes it is not possible just to ‘juggle’ things around whilst major house projects are undertaken – moving items into temporary storage means having enough room to swing the paint roller without having to make the job more of a fight than it already is!
We can rent a unit and provide a ‘monitoring service’ for those people who are going to be away for an extended period of time, giving them comfort of mind that someone is taking care of any possessions in their absence.
Some students, especially from abroad, will not have anywhere to store belongings during holidays when either halls of residence have to be vacated, or new accommodation is being located for the next term.
