People often choose to travel for either work or pleasure for up to twelve months or more. With their house often unoccupied during this period they feel more secure placing their treasured possessions into a secure self-storage facility. If the move overseas is work related often the company pays the bills and will require quotes. A good self-storage company will be able to visit your home, provide a free quote and submit it professionally to the company responsible for making the payments.
Because 12 months is a long time you need to ensure that you save money where possible while also storing at a safe and secure location. The best way to secure the right size and price is to have an experienced self storage consultant come to your home to provide a free no obligation quote. This ensures that you will only get the space you need and will not be paying for additional unused space. Your storage consultant will be able to advise you on the best way to store your belongings for the long term and how to box and wrap them for maximum protection.
It is unfortunate but marriage breakdowns and high divorce rates are becoming more prevalent in today’s society. It is often the case where one person is forced to leave the family home and needs to store the items that were solely theirs. This can often include a car and the contents of the garage. Most storage facilities deal with these situations regularly with discretion and privacy. Should you need to store a car you should check with the storage facility to see if this type of space is available. Most times cars are stored in a lock up garage space but alternatively there may be opportunities to store it in a secured outside space.
Most customers in this situation have a tough emotional time and the need for storage can be sudden. A good self-storage company will have trained team members who will have an empathetic and caring approach and provide a complete storage solution including quote, move and store at very short notice.
MOVING BACK INTO THE FAMILY HOME
So the kids leave the nest and you have all this spare room to do with what ever you want. And you do by creating a study and an entertainment area, not to mention your own in house storage area. Then 12 months later you get the phone call “Mum it has not worked out and I need to come home”. You can rustle up a bed but where is your son or daughter going to put all of their recently acquired possessions?
Self-storage is the perfect solution. Because siblings often move in and out of home a few times before settling down, self storage allows them the flexibility to store their belongings just for the period required and when needed they can get it all out and move again. Some storage facilities have a free move in trailer and driver service which is very popular among young people who can’t afford removalists and have not got too much furniture to move.
LIFESTYLE AND HOBBIES
Some people decide to use storage to improve their way of life. Particularly where living space is at a premium and having a storage unit is just like having a garden shed. It is merely an extension of their home.
Self-storage can also provide those with elaborate hobbies the space to indulge in their favourite past times away from the mischievous hands of children or unsympathetic partners. This may include building trains and tracks, collecting and reading comics or simply storing your valuable coin or stamp collections. With extended access hours to visit your storage space, excellent security and a variety of different sized units to choose from at reasonable rates, self storage can provide that extra space you have always wanted.
