Moving house? Storage King to the rescue!
Moving house: it’s not something we do for fun, is it? All the same, the time comes when we have to move on to pastures new. Getting storage space can take some of the stress out of your move, making the whole process a lot smoother and easier on frayed nerves. In fact, statistics show that the prime reason for taking storage space is the need to put a few things away over the moving period. But surely moving simply means packing up, moving on and packing out? Our investigations show there’s more to it than that!
If you own your home rather than renting it, moving means you have to get the old place sold first. We already know that the better the impression we make on prospective home buyers, the faster our properties will sell, but what’s to be done about all the things that make our homes look lived in? Buyers want to see everything crisp and uncluttered even though they know everything will move when we move. What’s to be done?
Moving our loved but less than impressive belongings into storage is a great solution. The family room couch that Fido has turned into his favourite bed, grandma’s comfy armchair that you love but nobody else does, and the antique dresser you picked up for a song and keep meaning to refinish are among the items you can put out of sight in a storage facility along with your decades-long collection of National Geographic and the books and toys you don’t need every day but still want to keep.
Imagine this. You’ve just landed your dream job. There’s just one problem. You have to move right across the country to take it. What with finishing up at your old job and getting your home in order for the move, you just don’t have time to drive hundreds of kilometres every time a suitable sounding new home falls open, and you wouldn’t want to sign a lease or buy a new home without having a good look around first.
The obvious solution would be to get temporary lodgings for yourself and your family and look around at what’s available for a more permanent arrangement at your leisure. But who wants to move house twice if once will do? Instead of unpacking everything or living with mountains of boxes while you search for the ideal home, you can put everything you don’t need right away into storage. There’ll be plenty of time to unpack once you’ve found the right place to call home.
Just get this stuff out of my way for now!
If you’ve got a fair amount of time to prepare for your move, packing up things you don’t often use ahead of time can save you stress. But what’s to be done with the boxes? Nobody likes having a stack of boxes standing around in the hallway for weeks on end. Eliminate the issue by getting storage space so that you can pack in your own time without the inconvenience of having to live with the consequences of multiple boxes!
Too much stuff! I need to think about this…
If you’re moving from a large home to a smaller one, you might have way too much stuff to fit into it. Selling up a few pieces makes sense, but you might not want to let your Queen Anne chairs go for pennies just because you’re in a rush. Besides, you still have to get settled in the new place, and there might be some chopping and changing. As for empty nesters, you know your kids are going to have a fit if you get rid of the bits and bobs they left behind. Asking them to pick it all up is a fair call, but is it going to happen in time? Pop those goodies into storage to give everyone time to get them organised.
