How to get ready for a House move to storage temporarily -Call 0203 633 2799

Planning for a move to storage requires careful advance preparation. The following tips will help you make the process smoother and more manageable:

  1. Declutter: Before you start packing, go through all your belongings and decide what you want to keep, donate, sell, or throw away. This will not only reduce the amount of stuff you need to pack, but it will also help you save money on storage costs.

  2. Get the right packing supplies: Invest in good quality packing supplies such as boxes, packing tape, bubble wrap, packing paper, and markers. Make sure to get enough supplies to protect your items during the move and in storage.

  3. Pack your belongings carefully: Use the right packing techniques to ensure that your items are properly protected during the move and in storage. Label each box clearly with the contents and the room it belongs to, to make unpacking easier.

  4. Organize and prioritize: When packing, make sure to prioritize items that you will need first when you move into your new home. Label these boxes clearly and keep them at the front of the storage unit for easy access.

  5. Choose the right storage unit: When choosing a storage unit, consider the size and location carefully. Make sure to choose a unit that is secure, climate-controlled, and has easy access.

  6. Protect your furniture: When storing furniture, use furniture covers or blankets to protect them from dust and scratches. Disassemble large items such as beds and tables to save space and make them easier to transport.

  7. Take photos and make an inventory: Take photos of your belongings before you move them into storage, and create an inventory list. This will help you keep track of your items and ensure that nothing gets lost or damaged.

  8. Hire professional movers: Consider hiring professional movers to help you with the move. They have the expertise and equipment needed to move your belongings safely and efficiently.

By following these tips, you can ensure that your move to storage is as smooth and stress-free as possible.

Why should you use the same moving company (if possible) to move back your storage unit to your new house?

Using the same company to move your storage unit back to your new house has several benefits:

  1. Familiarity: The company that helped you move your belongings into storage will be familiar with your items, how they were packed, and where they are located in the storage unit. This can help make the move back to your new house more efficient and less stressful.

  2. Expertise: Moving companies that specialize in both moving and storage have the expertise and equipment needed to move your belongings safely and efficiently. They know how to pack and transport fragile items, and they have the tools needed to move large or heavy items.

  3. Accountability: When you use the same company for both moving and storage, there is a higher level of accountability. If there are any issues with your items during the move back to your new house, the company will be responsible for resolving them.

  4. Convenience: Using the same company for both moving and storage can be more convenient. You only have to deal with one company for both services, which can help simplify the process and save you time and effort.

Overall, using the same company for both moving and storage can help make the entire process smoother and less stressful. It ensures that your belongings are moved safely and efficiently, and it provides peace of mind knowing that you are dealing with a reputable and accountable company.

However if you are not able to book the same moving company, we at Joel Removals are experienced to move back your storage contents and reassemble furniture which were dismantled already.
