Renovating or Repairing Your Home? Let Self Storage Take the Strain and Stress Away

by Boris Dzhingarov on Apr 14, 2020

When it comes to a large scale renovation of your property, or maybe an urgent repair caused by a flood or small fire incident, the strain and stress that not only the event can put on your family, but also all of the following building or repair work as well is often unbearable.

If you have small children, then having your home literally taken over by a team of builders or tradespeople is hard to bear, as it is not easy to keep a two year old occupied at the best of times, and it is even harder when there are so many new things to touch or people to talk to. Trying to live in your home when there is so much going on is problematic as it is, but if you have had to clear a couple of your rooms contents then you are probably also going to be living in a very cramped and crowded property until the works have finished, again, something that can place a massive amount of strain on a family.

Lack of space is often mentioned as a key reason to move to another property or one of the biggest causes of stress at home, so it is no surprises that on top of having no room, you also have a house full of dust, noise and disruption the overwhelming feeling of despair can quickly set in.

If you currently find yourself in this situation or you are maybe going to be find yourself going through this very soon, then self storage is often a viable option to take away some of the stress and strain. As most self storage facilities operate on a flexible basis in terms of rental periods, you can easily hire a unit for a couple of months to store away all of the furniture, white goods and other possessions that you might not need until the renovation or repair is complete. This not only means more room for you and your family, but it also serves as a protection measure as well, as when your household possessions are left in what it is often nothing more than a building site, then damage can so easily occur, even if you have the most careful work team in the world.

Self storage is not only affordable but it is flexible to your needs, so if you need a certain sized unit for a certain amount of time, then this is often no issue, as most of the independent storage facilities are a family run business, meaning that they understand and they care about your situation, and often offer the level of flexibility you need. If you are not sure how long you need the unit, as the building works might run over and behind, then you can often just extend your storage rental for another month or two.

It really can be the perfect solution, as it stops you having to live in a house that is so jammed packed you can barely move, and if you are going to be moving out for a few months then it means you can protect all of your possessions whilst the work is being carried out and also when the property is empty, so it really is a win win. One of the key reasons self storage just works, as we mention, is the affordability and flexibility, as very few storage alternatives can be rented on a month by month basis with no hefty contract ending fees. And, should you need more or less space, most facilities will let you downsize or expand your storage as you need to, rather than charging you a new customer fee or tying you into a longer contract.

So, if your home is being repaired, renovated or extended, think about using your local self storage facility to take away some of the hassle and stress that such a move can bring, and you might end up actually looking forward to your updated property, rather than dreading every day waiting for it to be completed!
