2. Declutter Before Packing: Going through all your belongings before you move. Sell, donate, or dispose of these items to help decrease the number of things you need to move. This will not only save you time but also reduce moving costs.

3. Hire Professional Movers: Working with a reputable moving company can greatly reduce the physical and mental load of moving. Professional movers have the expertise, equipment, and strength to handle your belongings with care and efficiency.

4. Pack Smartly: Label all boxes clearly with their contents and intended room in the new house. Use sturdy, high-quality boxes to help protect your belongings. Especially if you are moving some items into storage, labelling all your boxes will help you keep track of everything. Also consider packing an essentials box with items you’ll need immediately upon arrival at your new home, such as toiletries, medication, and basic cookware.

5. Look After Yourself: Moving is physically and emotionally taxing. Make sure to take breaks, stay hydrated and eat properly during the moving process. If possible, arrange for childcare and / or pet care during the most hectic days. Remember that it’s okay to ask for help from friends, family, or professionals.

Why Do Home Movers Use Self Storage During Their House Move?

Timing and Transitional Space

One of the most common challenges of moving house is coordinating the timing between vacating one property and moving into another. Delays can result in the need for temporary storage. Access Self Storage provides a flexible, secure space to store your belongings in during these transitional periods.

Decluttering and Staging

When selling a home, first impressions are crucial. Clutter can make spaces appear smaller and less attractive to potential buyers. Using a self-storage unit to create temporary spaces in your home will help make your home more spacious and attractive. This decluttering process not only aids in selling the property more swiftly but can also potentially increase the sale price.

Renovations and Home Improvements

If the new home requires renovations or updates before you can fully move in, our renovation storage offers a convenient solution for keeping furniture and other household items out of the way. This protects your belongings from potential damage due to construction activities, dust, and paint. It also gives workers more space to operate, which can help expedite the renovation process.


Moving to a smaller home often requires parting with some of your belongings. Self-storage can ease this transition by providing a place to store items that one is not ready to sell, donate, or dispose of immediately. This is particularly useful for items with sentimental value that you cannot bear to part with.

Seasonal Storage

For those who have seasonal hobbies or own seasonal gear (like skiing equipment, gardening tools, or summer patio furniture), self-storage can be invaluable. Storage helps keep your home clear home from unnecessary clutter when the gear is not needed all year round.
