Benefits of Using a Storage Unit Before Moving to a New House

Moving home is always a stressful experience in anyone’s life, particularly if there is a gap between one tenancy ending and the next one starting. Options tend to include taking advantage of any free space that your friends or family might have while you search for your next dream home or trying desperately to make the move in one swift day.

Peace of Mind

Using a storage facility can help alleviate some of that stress by allowing you to keep all your possessions in one easy to access, secure location. It means that you know exactly where everything is and you don’t have to worry about burdening your friends or family with the responsibility of looking after your belongings while you move into your new home.

Knowing your possessions are safe and dry in a secure location can be a lifeline in a time of change. The storage operators won’t open your unit and you can provide your own padlock for added peace of mind. Storage facility premises are also covered by CCTV, so you know that anyone going in or out of the unit is being monitored, and any good provider will have an insurance policy so that if the worst case scenario did occur, you know you would be protected.

Furthermore, most storage facilities will include collection from your home and delivery to the new property, so you don’t need to worry about how you will transport your belongings, leaving you free to focus on the project management of your move with no need to rope in extra hands to help with the heavy lifting.

Using a storage facility such as Gallagher’s allows you to leave it to the professionals, and you can rest assured that your belongings are secure for as long as you need, for just £8.50 per week.
