Moving house is stressful at the best of times, and the pressure is only piled further on if you’re moving in exceptional circumstances.
If you’re moving abroad, for example, or into a house that’s going to need to some work, you have to make sure you have somewhere safe to store your furniture, furnishings and other possessions until you can safely transport them to your new home.
Today we’re presenting a short guide to how you can use storage facilities to relieve the stress of moving, whether you’re moving across the world or even only down the road.
If you’re looking for storage, London has plenty to offer so we’re going to give you a reason to use it!
One of the most stressful parts of moving house is the actual moving day itself. Whether you’re using professional movers or helpful friends, there’s always a risk of boxes getting lost or dropped, or large items of furniture scraping paintwork off the doorframes in your new home in the rush to get everything in place.
To reduce the risk of damage and loss, as well as stress induced arguments and headaches, you can minimise the amount of moving you actually have to do on the day itself.
Getting your bulkiest, and most awkward items into storage in advance, along with more precious packages you don’t want to risk anyone else shifting means you only have to move the bare essentials on the day itself. The more difficult and sensitive items you can move in the days and weeks to come, at your leisure, taking care as you do so.
Find the right storage company and you can even use them as movers into the bargain! Some offer pick up and delivery of your stored items with professional and insured movers, so you can cut more work out of the stressful business of moving house.
Longer Term Solutions
If you’ve bought somewhere you’re planning to work on before you can resume your usual standard of living in it, or you’re moving abroad, you’ll need a longer term solution. If you talk to the storage company about your needs you might find you’ll be able to get a better rate than they usually advertise: long term customers are far more valuable to storage companies due to the assured stability of the revenue you offer them.
This cuts your bill and means you can get on your with your move and your renovations without worrying!
