We get it, moving is stressful…
Transporting boxes from one location to the next can be an arduous task, to say the least. This stress is only exacerbated by the streams of household items hoarded over the years, in addition to the lack of space in the home to store all your belongings before and even after move day.
According to the Independent, the average Briton holds on to more than £1,600 worth of unwanted items. Consequently, this poses real difficulty when individuals decide to relocate, with their excess belongings causing difficulty in both a packaging and storage sense.
Thankfully, a storage facility alleviates any problems you may have during your relocation process, providing ample square footage for those items that can no longer fit in your home. However, when considering using a self-storage facility, you still need to weigh up the costs involved and make sure it is the right solution for you. In order to do so, we have provided our top 3 tips to consider when selecting a storage facility.
Self Storage Vs Full Service
Cost, size and location
Level of Security
One of the most important factors to consider when choosing a storage unit is the level of security the facility has. Whilst this is obviously important if you plan on storing valuables, even day-to-day items can be a hindrance to lose, and the last thing you want when choosing a storage facility is to be worried that your possessions might be stolen! Do your research; make sure the facility has up-to-date security systems in place, and enquire as to how exactly your goods will be monitored.
