Are there any benefits of using storage? Well the short answer to that is yes! But it depends on circumstances, and this could be anything! So if you’re thinking about using storage but unsure if it’s really necessary, see if your circumstances fit into any of the categories mentioned below for help in making that decision! Moving to a house that needs major refurbishment!When the move is to a property that needs stripping back to bare brick and total refurbishment is involved, you may have to consider storing your possessions safely away until the work is near done and can be safely stored in your new home. Some people sell their homes to fund the refurbishment project of a new one, and therefore leaving the goods in the old accommodation is simply not feasible! Temporary storage whilst you quickly decorate!Some of you may be considering doing a very quick job of decorating, with maybe a new kitchen and bathroom, and that’s basically it! To be able to do this job quickly and more efficiently it may pay off to store your belongings in a storage capacity, just for a week or two maybe? All though there’s an added cost for storage, at least you’ll know all of your belongings are out of harm’s way for the time being, and it allows you more time and space to quickly get on with the work that needs doing! Sold house and are now homeless?Unfortunately some people find themselves in the situation where they have sold their homes in the event of them moving to the newly purchased one, within the same time scale! However this does not always go to plan and you could end up in the awful situation of being homeless! If this happens you may to rent for a while, some rented accommodation will allow you to take you belongings with you whereas other is already furnished! Also finding rented accommodation can also take time and if left in a situation where you are looking for a place to temporarily live, you may have to temporarily house all of your goods in safe and secure storage too! Haven’t got time to de-clutter?Although not the ideal some people find that they have to move very quickly. Whatever the circumstances a quick move may mean you have to pack the lot up ASAP and ship it all with you. If you know that half of those goods are unwanted or were never intended to go with to the new home, you could temporarily put them into storage with a plan of going back to sort through it all and de-clutter at a later stage. If this sounds like a doable plan right now, just make sure that whatever you do you don’t leave your things there for too long, as you will be accumulating extra unnecessary costs! Temporary storage for imported goodsIf you are importing goods from outside the EU they must be assigned through custom authority. To do this you need to complete from C1600A at the customs office you are using so that the goods can be verified and checked prior to being released into the new country of residence. This is standard procedure in the same way we check in at customs prior to visiting another country. For anybody moving international temporary storage for imported goods is a must!There are many other reasons you may wish to use storage and if it’s something that you are seriously considering then it is best for you to do a thorough online search to find the best quotes and deals around!
