Moving home or office as we all know is just about as stressful as life can get. It doesn’t matter if you’re moving a few miles down the road or you’re preparing for a move abroad. At the end of the day, distance doesn’t matter, we all go through the same range of emotions (although moving abroad does require more planning).
There are a number of reasons why you should consider using a storage facility. It could be that you’re moving to another country for work and you won’t need all your belongings with you because it’s not permanent. If you’re in the situation where you can’t keep the home you’re already in, you will need to find somewhere to safely store your precious items.
It could also be that you’ve taken the plunge and are about to move in with your partner. This can bring all sorts of problems in terms of storage. Where is your girlfriend going to put that life long collection of soft toys? Or, where is your boyfriend going to put his life long collection of toy cars? Instead of arguing about who takes what (not a good start when you’re first moving in together), you should ask your removal company about a storage facility. Some of the larger companies will be able to do this for you.
If they can’t they’re the best people to ask because they will have all sorts of contacts within the removal industry, and the chances are they’ll know of someone. It doesn’t have to cost you loads of money either. You might think you’ll need a large space but you’ll be surprised at just how small a space your things will fit into. Just make sure you pack carefully and where possible, use space saving bags.
