Storage Checker: How Much Do You Need?

If you’re moving to a new house, you might find yourself downsizing, moving to a bigger home or even having a serious declutter before the move. They say moving can be one of the most stressful things you’ll ever do, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Often you can minimise the stress by ensuring you’re organised well in advance of moving day – and organising your packing is a great place to start!

If you’re downsizing or decluttering but there are some things you simply can’t bear to get rid of, self-storage is a great option. You can store all the furniture or boxes you don’t have space for – great if you’re renting a house in Norwich for a short period of time or need to store some furniture until you can sell other pieces and make space.

How Much Stuff Do You Have?

We all underestimate how much stuff we have and it’s only when moving day rolls around that we realise exactly how much clutter we have accumulated. If you’re planning on placing items in self-storage, you’ll want to know how much space you’ll need and what it’s going to cost you, so you can work out if it’s an affordable option.

As a rough guide, if you’re decluttering a small apartment and placing most items of furniture into storage, you might need a transit van and 75-feet of storage space, whereas for storing the contents of a large house, a lorry and 125-feet of storage space will probably suit your needs best.

Of course, it depends exactly what you’re storing too! If it’s just a couch and a couple of boxes, you’ll need less space than somebody who is putting the contents of their three-bedroom house into storage while they go travelling!

The Benefits of Self Storage

You might wonder why self storage in the Waveney Valley is a good idea when you could just declutter and get rid of stuff. If you’re going travelling or moving somewhere for a short period of time, storing your furniture and belongings means you’ll settle into your new home more quickly once you get back.

Self storage has a number of benefits, the main one being that your stuff is accessible 24/7 as you have your own key. It’s more secure than just leaving your stuff in an empty house too, as 24-hour security, intruder alarms and CCTV will keep your belongings safe. We also provide comprehensive insurance for each storage unit, so you don’t need to worry about your most valuable items of furniture.
