Benefits of Using Self Storage when Moving Home

Moving with kids? Let’s just say it’s an adventure. While exciting, it can also be a logistical nightmare. Boxes pile up, furniture becomes an obstacle course, and keeping everyone calm can feel impossible. Self storage can be your secret weapon for a smoother, less stressful move.

​​Staging Savvy 

If you are trying to sell your current home, Self storage allows you to declutter and stage your home for potential buyers. By removing unnecessary furniture and belongings, you create a more spacious and inviting atmosphere, potentially increasing your chances of a quicker sale.

Breathing Room for the Big Move

  • Pack in Stages: Avoid the last-minute packing frenzy. With self storage, you can gradually pack non-essentials over weeks, leaving more space for everyday items and reducing moving day mayhem.
  • Declutter as You Go: Moving is a perfect time to purge! A storage unit allows you to sort through belongings and decide what to keep, donate, or sell. This not only saves space in your new home but can also earn you some extra cash.

Long-Distance Logistics

Moving across the country? Self storage can be a lifesaver. Instead of cramming everything into a moving truck and potentially incurring extra fees for weight, you can store non-essentials or off-season items closer to your new home. This reduces moving costs and makes unpacking at your destination a breeze.

Creates Calm in your New Home

When moving to a new home, you might be looking at doing some renovation work. Store your furniture and belongings while renovations take place. This allows workers easy access and keeps your precious items safe from dust and debris.

Cost Effective Solution

Moving home can be an expensive time for your family. Self storage can be a cost-effective solution compared to hiring additional movers or renting a larger moving truck. Storage units offer a variety of sizes and rental periods for your needs, helping you to find the most affordable option for your needs.

More Than Just Extra Space

Modern storage facilities offer top-notch security features like alarms, video surveillance, and climate control. You can rest assured your belongings are safe and sound while you focus on getting settled. Most storage facilities offer 24/7 access, so you can retrieve forgotten items or seasonal items whenever you need them. This gives you control and convenience during the moving process and beyond.


So, the next time you’re facing a family move, consider self storage as your partner in crime.  With a little extra space, you can create a calmer, more organised moving experience for everyone involved.  After all, a smooth move is a happy move!
