As selected elements of the lockdown restrictions are eased, removals firms and estate agents are now able to operate more widely, although with strict guideline on social distancing.
This is fantastic news for the property market and those moves which were stalled due to the lockdown can now resume.
Moving house is said to be one of the most stressful things you do, which is not made any easier during the current coronavirus pandemic.
CityStore self storage are here to help take some of the stress out of moving – especially if you’re thinking of moving house during lockdown.
Here is how CityStore can help:
Moving some of your items into a self storage unit in advance can help reduce your moving time and costs.
Moving non-essential items out of the way earlier means spending less time packing and unpacking on your moving day. Once you’re settled in your new home you can take your time on deciding where things go and move your goods out of your storage unit at you own pace.
Decluttering has the advantage of making rooms look bigger and more spacious, thus more attractive to a potential buyer.
Stuck between moves
You may have buyer for your property or are near to the end of your rental agreement, but what happens if you have not found your ideal new home?
Renting a storage unit can be a solution to help complete your move quickly without having to ask the buyers to delay or risk the sale falling through. You can then rent on a short term agreement or stay with family member until you can find your new home. With self storage your goods are safe, secure and you can access them as and when you need to.
Decorate before you move in
You may find it easier redecorate or complete any renovation work before your furniture and goods enter your home.
Using a self storage unit at CityStore means your goods are out of the way to give you space to work. This may also help avoid any accidental paint damage or bumps & scratches from moving furniture around.
