When people are in the process of moving, they often don’t have a backup plan in case things go wrong.
Self-storage is the best back-up plan you can have when moving. In the event of an unexpected delay, a self-storage unit can be extremely convenient. Here are a few concrete reasons why self-storage and relocation go hand in hand:
Any sort of emergency can arise when moving into a new place. The new office might need to be fumigated, there might be a need for some last minute repairs, or the place might have been flooded. If for any reason the new space is not ready to receive your items, then that could put you in a tricky situation if you can‘t keep your things at the old space. This is why it is good to have a self-storage unit. It makes life easier and takes out the stress in moving.
When you have a self-storage unit you don’t have to move things in a rush. You can be more organised and methodical in your approach and place things in your new home or office as you need them. This makes the entire moving process smoother and less stressful.
You would be surprised at how much junk you’ve accumulated over the years. Sometimes you might not want to throw it all away, at least not yet, but it doesn’t help to move junk from an old place into a new one. Having a storage unit gives you time to assess what you can keep and what can go, as opposed to making rash decisions under pressure.
When you are downsizing, you would have accumulated a lot of assets that might be of value. The reality is that everything cannot fit in the new, smaller place, so self storage allows you to store those assets until you can figure out what to do with them.
Moving should not be an interruption of daily business activities. Self storage allows you to carry on with business with minimal interruptions, which reduces costs. Even if you are not running a business, you can avoid having to take time off from work or interrupting your daily activities when moving.
