When you come to move home, you’ll begin to realise just how much of a hoarder you’ve been whilst living in your home. When moving time comes around, you’ll be swamped with old possessions and tatty items of decoration that you might not necessarily need in your shiny new house. If that’s the case, your best option is to have a clear out, and even if you’re not willing to throw things out, you need to make a decision on what gets transported into your new property. Storage is a great option when it comes to de-cluttering for your new home, and even though you might think you can handle self-storage, the best option in many cases is to get it done by professionals.
Take price into account
Moving house is a costly process, and you’ll undoubtedly be wanting to keep your costs as low as possible. If you’re exploring storage options, make sure that you take into account that self-storage isn’t always the cheapest option. Just because it seems logical the cheaper option is lugging items into storage yourself, it definitely isn’t the case. In fact, it’s commonly the case that people who hire professionals like Robinsons to carry out their storage requirements save around 30 to 35%.
Avoid the labour
With a house move, there will be many menial and laborious tasks for you to carry out. With that in mind, I’m sure that you’ll do anything possible to spare yourself the torture of humping your many boxed possessions into storage. You don’t want to waste your weekend off packing and driving goods to self-storage, so getting storage professionals to do the job is by far the best option.
Have peace of mind
There is a reason that you put items into storage rather than throwing them away, and that’s because they’re items that you’re fond of. The last thing you want is for your stored goods to be stolen.
