Why Celebrate National Moving Month?

This is a great time to celebrate interior design. Turn a critical eye to your home and freshen up the place ready for the busy summer selling season. Do you want to make a statement? Do you want to declutter to show off the space in your home?

Our homes have a major impact on our mental health, wellbeing and mood, so it’s important that we feel happy when we’re at home. Ensure your home leaves a good impression on potential buyers and think of simple, cost-effective ways to improve your current living space. So, get the creative juices flowing, pick out the areas to improve and, most important of all, have fun.

Take Stock of Your Home

It can be easy to feel overwhelmed when you think about where to even begin. Should you start in the bedroom? Should you start small, like clearing out drawers, before tackling a room? Or maybe you should completely overhaul the tired interiors and inject new life by changing everything?

The easiest thing to do is to start by creating an inventory of your home, room by room, and taking note of what you love, what you need and what you will not need for a while. By listing everything you want to get done, it’s easier to prioritise work and get started.

Spring Clean Your Home

National Moving Month occurs at the end of spring, which is also the perfect time to spring clean your home. Once your home is organised and clutter-free, it’s time to consider if it’s worthwhile refreshing your current décor to give it a fresh twist.

Light and bright is the perfect choice – many buyers look for a bright and inviting home so maybe all that’s needed is taking down (and storing) heavy curtains to allow more natural light in. Or you may want to consider adding a little more indoor lighting to a few rooms (for example, with floor lamps).

Get Things Out of the Way

When getting your home ready for sale, remember that less is more. Consider moving oversized furniture, boxes of untidy toys and the exercise bike you rarely use – and not to the garage, as potential buyers will look there too. The last thing you want is to give the impression your home is small; why not get everything you don’t need out of the house and store it safely somewhere secure? We can store your belongings, no matter whether they’re small household items or large pieces of furniture, while you sell your home.

We have units of all sizes, so you can be sure we have the right size unit for you. Yes, you can store your canoe or your pool table and be confident that everything is safe (with your own lock and unique code) and easy to access – just pop in at any time when you need to retrieve an item and it will be there waiting for you.

In addition, we can also offer you boxes and packaging, meaning you don’t have to go out of your way to get the supplies needed to store your possessions.

We can help you take advantage of National Moving Month by providing all the self-storage you could possibly need – just talk to us and we’ll discuss your needs with you. Alternatively, you can get a quote online.
